Makin' for the Ecofest...

Peppermint and lavender soap
Little skirts

On Saturday the 9th of October, Western Heights Uniting Church is holding an Ecofest from 10am-3pm. Andrew & I are helping to organise it, our task is finding inspiring speakers for the day. Bec and I will also be having a market stall, with eco friendly children's clothes, accessories, and handmade (palm oil free) soap. If only you could smell my house at the moment, the peppermint and lavender is wafting through mmmm, fresh! The 4 skirts in the picture above are made from fabric sample books generously given to me by Jiddi's Patch. I'll be keeping these skirts for the Ecofest rather than listing on Etsy, though I'm rather fond of the purple one, which I thought I might keep for Liv, Evie thinks she might like it too. I think it will fit both of them! It might be good to have a little model or two wandering around on the day ;) We just found out last night that Gavin Webber from The Greening of Gavin blog has signed up to speak about his green epiphany. We're very excited about that, he thinks he'll spend the day down here. We are hoping to raise enough money to buy a watertank or two, to cut down our church's water use. We're also hoping to build a veggie and herb garden that the community can access. So mark the date in your diary if you're going to be in Geelong on the 9th of October, and we hope to see you there!

I think I might have to buy one of those skirts of you at ecofest! - very cute.
I better get cracking making things. I made an upcycled skirt today - but I think it will go to our niece for her third birthday in a week or two.
