Red Bamboo yummy stuff :
....... goats milk bars and olive oil balls in wonderful fragrances!  Be quick as the spearmint and rosemary are all sold but you can get your "after dinner mint" soap as well as moroccan rhassoul and a gorgeous concoction of vanilla pomegranate and black currant!  The olive oil soaps include many of Annie's favourites including lavender and ylang ylang- mine is the red tea & linden blossom.
........also soy wax candles in beautiful frosted cups in a plethora of fragrances and colours.  The shop smells devine.

A new shipment of Wendy Koolhof hand dyed yarns has arrived - wools and silks abound in rainbows of colour but be quick ... the hanks run out the door as quickly as I can unpack them.

Today also Mahdi Chandler called in on the way home from the UTAS Experimental Textiles Summer School to top up the scarves - silks, linen, 100% soft cotton, silk devore and silk gauze silk & steel and muslin.....  her hand dyed bangles are also in stock and from today, Oatlands handmade is proud to have a small range of Mahdi's gorgeous and unique embellishing threads & findings.

Lucy Ward Designs laser cut polycarbonate brooches have arrived including a new Tassie Devil one!  You could match a brooch with one of Stalley's useful and stylish Devil bags.

...and just this afternoon, Three Little Chickens magnet sets, clip it magnets and gift cards arrived!
