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.

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


Completed Bedspread/Doona Cover “Japanese Inspiration” part two

DSCN1842Update on the bedspread that was once finished, well I decided to make a change and rather than it be a doona cover I wanted it to be a spread for the bed.                                                           So apart it came and wadding hand stitched to the front, then the back pinned and stitched with decorative stitching (used up five bobbins to do it), still wondering why I did not just get it quilted by someone else for me, done now so.

DSCN1836So now it is complete, I am happy with how it looks and hope the other half does to.
