A new heirloom wrap, tote bag & other news!

First to mention is that I took all my sewing machines in for a service yesterday - I will be able to pick them up Wednesday or Thursday this week, so there may be a delay of a day or so on a few items in-store that I make to order.

A few new items in-store this week that I have been busy making - below is one of my Heirloom Wrap and Burp Cloths Sets - this one in a gorgeous traditional teddy bear set with the lacy white crochet edge. These make the most special gift for a new baby or a baby shower, the wraps make a divine receiving blanket for a new baby.

Also a new jeans tote just listed: This one crafted from Cue jeans as the front panel (these are a most gorgeous purple/aubergine toned) with remainder of outer in a blue marco-suede, and fully lined in a funky purple and blue flower print cotton. My recycled jeans totes are always quite popular so if you fancy this one grab it as there is only one left.

You can also now buy our hand-knitted Finger Puppets as a Finger Puppet Gift Box ~ Great value, you get 10 Finger Puppets (RRP$40) for $30 gift boxed and with a lollypop. Fabulous gift idea for a child of just about any age. And fantastic as a "big brother or sister gift" when you have a new baby, or for when travelling or sick.

Recently I have noticed a lot of very nasty computer virus's making the rounds. These sure cause an awful lots of problems for people, especially if you are running an online business. Annette Piper wrote about her recent experience with a Trojan virus - very scary! So just a quick reminder to everyone to keep your virus software up to date, and be very careful about any links you click in emails or from Twitter or Facebook Direct Messages. Even if you think its from someone you can trust, my advice is to not click on any links unless you are expecting a particular message! You just can't be too careful these days.
