[2019 Fundraising Drive Sale] - Cute and funny 'Dammit' Dolls

Ever wondered if there is something you can hold onto when you are not feeling great or when things dont go so well? Try this cute and funny 'dammit' dolls. Each doll measures about 15cms in height and when things don't go so well, you will not feel guilty slamming it. Each doll is made of 100% cotton. Fully handmade and made of 100% cotton fabric. Eyes, nose and lips are hand embroidered and hair is sewn to the top of the head. Strong and ugly-looking enough to be slammed on the wall without feeling a bit guilty of hurting it. And while slamming, say 'dammit, dammit, dammit'. Check them out. Click on any of the images below. You will love them you have to purchase one of them.

Written on the front of the doll is the message below -
"Whenever things dont go so well and you want to hit the wall and yell, here is a little dammit doll that you can't do without. Just grasp it firmly by the legs and find a place to slam it. And as you whack the stuffing out, yell "dammit, dammit, dammit".

Proceeds from the sale of these cute dolls will be donated to Dress A Girl Australia's dress distribution fund for the new year 2019.

Dress Distribution #114/Quilt Distribution #4 sent to the Philippines today

After thinking thoroughly about it and anyway it is Christmas I decided to send a Christmas parcel to the Philippines today. The items will be distributed by a group headed by Norie Bordador. This is the parcel that was picked up this morning -
and these were the contents of the parcel - 24 dresses, totes, 2 quilts, stuff toys, colouring pencils, small totes and lunch bags
made possible by the following donors -
1) Dress A Girl Australia for the small totes, lunch bags and colouring pencils
2) Monika Osvald for the stuff toys
3) Quilts donated by Gwenda Doherty and Sylvia Pommerening
4) Dresses by the students of the Year 8 Fashion Class of The Rockhampton Grammar School of Queensland
5) Elaine Klein for the totes

There were no dresses sponsored by anyone this year except the 24 dresses that I personally made and sponsored. With the above distribution, it brings the total of dresses I have distributed for the year 2018 to 97 and a grand total of 9,907 dresses since I started in 2011(about 7 years ago). Am a bit short of my target of 10,000 dresses but I did distribute 1,918 pairs of t-shirts and shorts for the boys which makes up for the shortage.  Final numbers of distributions will be released early next month.

Thank you to all the donors especially for this year 2018. Much appreciated.

[2019 Fundraising Drive Sale] - Quilted Advent Calendars for Sale

Every year I try to come up with new advent calendar designs. There will be new designs available in the next few days. These advent calendars make great keepsakes to give at Christmas time for kids and adults alike. All my fabric calendars are either machine and/or hand-quilted, all 100% cotton and double-stitched on the edges. Because they are handmade, quantities are very limited and could be one-of-a-kind. 

I try to make my quilted advent calendars as fun to use for everyone and sometimes include surprises for kids to enjoy and help them learn how to count or keep track of days in a month and re-usable every Christmas season. As a Christmas bonus, the dowel is included in your purchase so you can easily hang the advent calendar. And for this year, I have decided to include the light decors you see on each calendar for free. The lights when you hang them on the wall will make the wallhanging look festive and bright.

Click on each of the images below for more information on size of calendar and pricing.
1) Good tidings of great joy.
