Rain Drops on Roses …. a few new favourite things

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, Brown paper packages tied up with strings, These are a few of my favorite things……

So not only have I given yoga a go but I also gave the blog a fresh look and came across my new favourite blog!

 Introducing CURLY POPS . I can only dream to have a blog as great as Cam’s. Everything for great tutorials and recipes to general craftyness! AND my favourite part so far : THE HOTTIE COVER CHALLENGE. This is a challenge to create a hot water bottle cover using any art or textile technique by the 24th of June. All the covers will then be displayed in a gallery and judged! The winner gets a trophy (wuuuuu exciting!) and, I think(maybe I’m making this part up), that the covers then get sold for charity too.

The project is being run by the Open Drawer who are: “A unique centre for quality art and textiles, providing workshops, supplies and the sale and display of finished product and a place for the art and textile community, to come together for sharing and creativity”. Head to http://opendrawer.com.au to check them out.

 It’s all in aid of the Margaret Pratt Foundation. This foundation works to raise money for research of heart and lung transplantation. Entry is only $5.00 and it is super easy to sign up! You just add your name to the list on Curly Pops , email Cam your details and she will post the pack out to you. You can pay via paypal or bank transfer. EASY! It literally took me less than 2 minutes to sign up. The rest of all the information you need can be found at http://curlypops.blogspot.com/2011/05/hottie-challenge.html or at http://opendrawer.com.au/about/goodwill-drawer/hottie-cover-challenge/  

So off I go to get some ideas for my cover !!! If you have any ideas please post them on this comment!
