This wee guy is squishy and cuddly and has a soooooooft minky dots reverse side.
"Rawr" (pronounced "Raaaaa!") means "I love you" in Dinosaur.
"Rawr?" means "Will you love me?"

A little sneak peek :)

The carrier that I will be stocking in the Gossamer Dreams stocking - she is very very special (and was going to be my very own personal carrier!) and absolutely OOAK with Kristen Doran handprinted panel and freeform feature stitching (by me) on the side panels. She will be a full buckle, on wheat pebble canvas.

She is nearly finished - and seriously is probably most definitely the last carrier I will stock until after my babymoon!

Wee babies

When I think soft and snuggly I think of these little guys. Just perfect for pockets!

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

Gracious me

And where has the year gone? Yup it's that time again 1st of the month and time to reveal the theme for December.

Soft and Snuggly.

And what is more soft and snuggly than a newborn baby and especially at Christmas, so I'll be doing mainly newborns snugglies and here's a peek.

Keep an eye on the blog for other goodies from the Gossamer Dreams Girls. And don't forget we don't stock January, we are all taking a well earned rest, but we'll be back fresh and exciting again in February.

And it's time for


Well can you believe that Christmas is only 55 days away, so time to get cracking on the Christmas shopping, the baking and the joy of Christmas.

So the girls at Gossamer Dreams have a couple of surprises in store just for you.

Firstly we'd like to welcome Mel from Beetlebums as a regular to the
Gossamer Dreams Team.

Megsie will be back to join us in November, along with 'K'

So I expect we'll see lots of gorgeous goodies

Here's my first offering, a size 2 Auriel, front with a divine Christmas Print, and the back is hand machine reverse applique with gorgeous little Christmas Trees and some hand embroidery to finish it off. This Auriel is especially lush, given that it has a lime slush minkee inner, not something that you will see everyday.

I have lots more Christmas goodies planned, so don't forget to keep checking back at the blog to see the Christmas Spirit unfold.

October Stocking

Well this month the theme is


We have 3 guest wahms this month - how awesome is that.

They are Guest Wahm K - who I've teamed up with to do a little set. Still deciding whether to split the lovely goodies into two packs, or leave as is - comments welcome.

The little set consists of a New Size 1 Auriel with a lime inner, and 'K' has made a little bib, singlet and the most lucious little wipes I've seen, with the most beautiful detailed stitching.

Our other guest wahms are the divinely talented sisters Megsie and Tikki

I can't wait to see what they have instore, but a little birdie tells me that Megsie will have a Pint dolly and Tikki some gorgeous clothes and maybe even something knitted.

Well it's nearly time

for our monthly stocking

We've all been busy little bees and as you can see some absolutely stunning goodies have made their way into the store to tempt you.

The hunt is progressing well, with Bek, Shane and Stacey stumping just a few of you with the Gossamer Dreams Hunt. More clues are going up everyday - except the 15th, please don't look for clues on the 15th, because we aren't putting any up.

Now what's on offer. We have three Guest WAHMs at the 15th Stocking. Tracy and Jill from Fairy Fabrics have done some fantastic dyeing jobs on clothing and sheets. Mandy is back with one of her gorgeous bags. Bek has some semi-custom up. Donna some dollies. Stacey has some lucious goodies including pads. Me I've just got nappies this time.

And here's a peek at the one of the sets.

See you tomorrow morning at 8am for a preview of all the items up for grabs at 8pm Queensland time.

Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

The June stocking is geared towards those gorgeous little boys, that love to climb, get into mischief and play in the mud. Doesn't mean that the girls are left out though, cause we all know that girls can get into as much mischief as those boys.

flower power!

There's a very sad story about how "flower power" has ended up, lol! I created it for a particular application, which, for one reason or another didn't work out the way it was supposed to :o(... (ok, if you must have the truth, it was my own stupidity, but it's still tragic!)
I invented a lot of new swear words when I realised what had happened, but sadly even amazing new swearwords won't create an extra inch of fabric where it just doesn't exist! Anyway, I thought I'd show off the flower anyway! It's just not on the nappy it was supposed to be on!

Cooking up some colourful!

A little something thats *not* pads ;)

Donna is having a hiatus this month - as it's Birthday Month at the Bits for Bots household.

We'll also draw the winner from the send in a list of ideas - it will be randomly drawn so everyone has a chance at winning :)

One for the boys (or the girls)...

...and something for Mum...

April Theme

Well the Gossamer Dreams Girls were kept super busy in March with the Great Down Under Nappy Hunt and are well and truly exhausted. Stacey and Bek didn't let the team down with twisted and evil nappy hunts, wonder what they are cooking up for the September Hunt.

But onward and upward and to that end the April Stocking Theme is

Outer Space

The first offering in the blog is from me - a gorgeously stunning piece of fabric that I picked up recently, that ties in beautifully with this month's theme. It's an OOP Michael Millar fabric. I could only get 1/2 yard, so these items will be OOAK and marked as such. They are the cutest little Tots in Space. This one is a fitted Auriel, with lemon bamboo velour inner. Keep your eyes peeled for more Gossamer Dreams Goodness over the next few days.

How cute are those tots?

Stocking is Wednesday the 15th April at 8pm, with previews going up at 8am. Don't forget the items are yours when you get them into your cart - we give you time to checkout. Alot of these items there are only one of, so it's still first to the cart :)

"galumph" went the little green frog one day...

a joint effort...



Green speaks to me of natural beauty
- of the joy, the chaos and the abundance of nature.
Heres just a tiny peek of something designed with that vision.
