Hills Fabric and Craft De-Stash (the reason behind missed blogs)


This is why my blogs do not get done as often as they should be, the Hills Fabric and Craft De-Stash has taken over, from small beginnings to nearly every month somewhere around WA an event is being held.

below are some of the pictures from the days we have had in Mundaring, Bunbury, Toodyay and others are being planned as everyone has so much fun.

Busy Busy Hills Fabric and Craft De-Stash, one year on.


It has been a long time since I have had chance to get on here and write a blog on anything, be it about clay creations, sewing or the de-stash events and even life. Tonight I am going to at least write about what has been occupying me the most, my de-stash events.

Well it is now a year in and I have held four de-stash events so far and they are just getting bigger each time, it is so awesome to see so many come together and help each other out in different ways.

We have raised money for the local bush fire brigade, helped out with collecting fabrics for  a prison release program, made bags for SARC, and currently we are raising money and goodies for Cancer Quilts Against Cancer, it has been an amazing journey.

I could not have done any of it without of the amazing people I have had involved along the way.

We are now onto our fifth event in a just under two weeks time and also we have just released an event in Bunbury at the request of the ladies down there.

thumbnail_hills-fabric-cdIt has been such an amazing time that I can not wait to tell you all about how the next one pans out.

And I shall try very hard to update my blog at least monthly with clay and sewing works for your enjoyment.

Well after the last de-stash event, I picked up this glorious fabric for myself, well guess what the other half spotted in and said “could I have a shirt from it”, how could I say no, so out came Simplicity 9469 again, along with a new collar that I drew up. Now this is not quite finished, but it is getting there, all the hems have been done by hand as I had to fill time when sitting in the hospital awaiting a child from surgery. All that is left to do is the buttons and button holes.

Should be another two or three weeks to get that done, I said to myself and guess what I managed to carve out some time today and it is now finished.

Womens Apron Request By My Son For Nanna


So coming up in a few days is my mothers birthday and my little man (master 11) said “can we make her one of your aprons as she hasn’t got one mum” gulp “yes of course we can go look through my fabrics and sort out some you think she would like” so of he goes, fabric all over the floor (apparantly not all over the floor, I forgot the chair as well), my ordered chaos no more, oh well that can be fixed.

These are the fabrics that he chose (all vintage peices out of my stash) and what a combination, think it looks great, now for the big test, sending it to her. Should I get him to make a card as well?
