Update...

These will have to wait until after Christmas.

** When your slot is coming up I will contact you to confirm whether you would still like it and if so I will require a deposit of $40. $25 of which is non-refundable. This is simply to cover myself in case I place an order for yarn, or dye the yarn or even start knitting and you change your mind and cancel your order.

Just finished...







...three customs :D

I'm sorry to say that I wont be doing anymore Loopy Lilly knitting after the current wait list is finished. I've enjoyed it while it lasted but I feel I'm devoting too much of my time to it unfortunately. Time I would rather spend knitting for my own children and as gifts for my friends and family. Thankyou to all my wonderful customers. xx

Slowly, slowly...

Yes, I'm still alive :D
I've been slowed right down by some pretty significant embellishments at the moment. So if you don't hear from me that's what I'm doing...head down, tail up in yarn.

Nearing the end of my custom list!

Yay!!

The Mother of All Rallies


We made our way to Canberra for the Mother Of All Rallies, which turned out to be a wet day, but nevertheless there was a great energy in the air.
Ginger had celebrated her birth day (and so had I!) a few days earlier so it was very fitting and lovely to be there with my little homebirth babe whose entrance to the wolrd changed my life in so many ways.

It was a fantastic turn out. The whole time I was wondering how many people were there. I guessed in the hundreds but media reports range from 2000-3500, so that is fantastic!

Considering 99.9% of people came from outside of the ACT it really demonstrated how passionate we are about homebirth. How important it is in our lives.

I met loads of other homebirth mummies, it was so great to put faces to so many names.

We have such a long way to go. Our fight has only just begun. Despite statements made by Nicola Roxon just days before the rally, the federal government has every intention of making homebirth an impossible choice for Australian women, and this is an utter tragedy for all of us.

What have I been doing?

This set was one of my customs. It went to a spunky little girl the same as a Ginger :D



This is my possum in her new longies. These are from WOOLfganic Merino from The Dye Pot. So beautiful. I just adore this colourway. It's called Tallullah.



My cousin and his partner welcomed their first child recently. A baby boy. This is the package I sent to them.


xx

Update!

I'm going to have a small break before I continue with the custom list. I just feel I need to knit a few things for my own kids for a bit :)
They are a tad neglected.

When I get back into it there are three names still on the list and after that I'm not knitting anymore customs for a while. It will be a novelty to knit for myself and my children and it will give me time to take on more charity projects and projects for gifting.

So a list update:

Last week....

...we welcomed a new addition to our extended family in the form of my cousins dughter. She is stunningly gorgeous but had a few health problems at birth, so last week was very stressful for all of us. She is home now and doing well, however I am behind in my knitting as I have been lending my support to my cousin and also rushing to knit a couple of things for the little Miss as she arrived a couple of weeks ahead of schedule.

I apologise for the delay. I am starting on the next custom today and I just finished this one!!

I hope you love it Amy <3>

Photo time!


A not quite finished skirty for Little Miss M. This is awaiting an embellishment and then it will be whisked off to Miss M herself to pat and adore.



My stunningly gorgeous and handsome son <3>
My little possum head in a beanie I made for her but which she wont leave on her head <3>

Homebirth no more?

I just want to draw your attention to something going on right now which threatens a womans right to choose where and how she gives birth. You may not think it applies to you if you are not one of the small percentage of women who wishes to give birth at home....however consider the ramifications of this decision by our government to dictate to women what kind of birth we are "allowed" to have.

Consider the fact that this is the first step in a continual errosion of ALL our rights. Today homebirth with a registered midwife is being outlawed....tomorrow, maybe a choice that applies to you will be outlawed.

And what about your daughters and your grand daughters? What choices will be left for them?

What a disgraceful situation we find ourselves in. We cannot sit by and allow this choice to be taken from us.

Rally - Byron Bay on the 4th July
Rally - Parliament House on the 7th September

See you there!

Progress!

This weekend I completed Pam's longies set and also Ginger's longies. And I'm half way through sewing a couple of mei tais. Yay. It feels good to achieve something.

For Pam's daughter...

Oh My Goddess!

I have so much in the works right now, it is not even the slightest bit funny.
I have a pile of sewing to complete, a knitting list a mile long....I have to gather and make things for a double blessingway (both of my cousins are expecting babies within a month of each other) and we have renovations and house projects coming out of our ears.

In amongst all this I have a custom list staring at me, which I am trying desperately to hide from.....but it's not working.

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming....

Fluffy Mail!

Look what arrived today from ikis Cloth. Two stunning nappies, a pair of soft soled baby shoes and a matching bib. We haven't had fluffy mail for quite a while and this package was particularly soft and delightful. Pam takes such pride in her sewing and it is all meticulous. Absolutely flawless quality in every item.

This one is a Fattycakes with Born At Home on the bum.


This one is a Hippy Hippy Snap AI2 with bamboo velour inner. So soft and yummy.

Ginger is a little grumpy on her 9 month Birthday because she has her first tooth coming through so she wasn't in the mood for modelling her shoes and bib. But she had fun checking them out.


Thankyou Pam!

Waiting list update!

I've had to shuffle my waiting list around slightly. I apologise to anyone who has been bumped down, I WILL get to you shortly.
The reason I've had to re-shuffle is because one item is for a trade and seeing as the other party has completed my item it's only fair to have hers completed in a reasonable period of time I feel. The other reason is because someone on my list has a very special and sick little princess waiting for a skirty to keep her warm in her wheel chair and it's very important that her skirty is finished sooner rather than later. I'm sure everyone can understand that!

Updated list:
Jordan
Sara
Pam
Amy
Erin
Di
Nat

Two new beauties...

There are two new beauties living in our house now.

This one is a DIY job, she is a fun print with a stunning colour combination. I love pink and green together. I used nice heavy corduroy for the straps and body as well as a layer of cotton twill in the body and then one layer of print. A basic mei tai but one of my favorites.





This is my beautiful Custom Dream Carrier. So so funky. My only SSC (at this stage) :P
