Mother’s Day Lovin’

Hello Friends.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner here in Australia – Sunday May 13th if it’s not already in your diary – and this year is extra special here at AVS Headquarters…

For those of you not already in the know, I am now over half way along with our second child {insert gushing smile and excited tummy rubbing 😉 }. We are due in August, and I have been rather un-graciously muddling through 24hr morning sickness and the total desertion of my memory. Hence the erratic blogging and wandering prose and… er, what was I saying again? 🙂

I am really looking forward to Mother’s Day this year, with a chatterbox 2 year old and a rather portly baby-belly – we are already having lots of interesting conversations about mummies and babies and sisters! Add to the mix my own Mamma who is feeling rather poorly with a dislocated elbow, and the day will call for lots of smooching and cuddles and hefty slices of cake. Definitely chocolate cake.

To celebrate the Mothers in your life (and they come in all guises don’t they…), I thought you might like a peek at this:

Wihoo! If ever you needed a reason to snap up a little bit of stichery goodness, this is it folks. Feel free to forward this offer on to friends you think might like the tip off – or hubbies or kids that might appreciate a hint!

Ok, off I go; I am determined to drink at least one cup of tea today while it’s still hot …



Bits and bobs, and a wee little SALE!

Hello Freinds

If you are pottering around Stirling in the Adelaide Hills, pop into the fab Library for a peek  the latest AVS contribution to the local artist display…

… All your favourites are there, soaking up the vibe and modestly showing off their little stitches and embellishments.

I LOVE this time of year in the hills – no fire danger (!),  golden Autumn leaves crunching under boots – and boots! – but brrrrrrrr, it’s getting chilly! To help you keep your little ones (and yourself) cosy and warm, head on over to the AVS Facebook  page for a little Autumn sale. It ends this Friday at 10pm, so spread the  word and don’t dilly dally!

It was lovely to be included in an all-Aussie Etsy treasury of goodness recently too:

Thanks Maryanne!

Ok, off I go, time to cosy up under my Nanna’s crocheted rug of lovelyness and slurp on a hot cuppa – for all of 3 seconds till the little one realises she REALLY needs dinner/hide-and-seek/another book etc etc…. still, it will be good while it lasts 🙂
