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.


Custom order for an apron

DSCN3002What do I say other than, love, love, love this one.

The customer (a potter so even more special), requested an apron to fit her, in denim, tapestries, purples and lime, and this hits the nail on the head, I can not wait to see her face as I will be delivering it to her next week as I want to check out what she makes.

New Venture With Dee

DSCN2783Recently one of my girlfriends (Lisa) put me and one of her girlfriends together for a cuppa, some hows later we had come up with a new business idea, this is a teaser of what is to come, our proto type.

Braces for a Firie

DSCN2252Not my best photo ( I know I know, take time), but I had to put this one up as soon as done, my partner is a local firie and requested a pair of braces to hold hid pants up, so what’s a girl to do other than make a pair, two inch wide elastic along with recycled red leather (pair of welding gloves that had died) and hey presto he is good to go.
