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.
This quilt is taking me forever to get done, in the last few days I have finally and I mean finally gotten the last rows of 25 squares sewn together, and that is 25 rows of 25, a feat and a half, now I must put it aside again and get onto some other sewing, like the request for a new dress (for me) and new shirt (for him), and both before my birthday.
Before I do though, let me tell you about a few of the fabrics I have used in this. The green lace for example came from an old dress, past it’s use by date but perfect for this job, th printed fabrics I have created both with screen printing a dragon that I drew up then cut into squares, the yellow is from an op shop, just a remnant that I saw had possibilities.
Stay tuned for next month as I sew each row together.
A few, okay a lot of you may know I have been involved, okay okay organizing with the help of Neridah from EventScene a massive fabric de-stash event.
Well Sunday we had the event and it was a major success, we had 28 sellers and a few hundred buyers through the door, take a look at some of our pics from the day.An amazing array of fabrics from, silks, leather, quilting cottons to polar fleece and knitting wool, even wool you could spin yourself, tapestry and upholstery , books about sewing and even machines for sale,everything came through though the door and more left with very happy buyers.
I found just recently this beautiful site on Facebook called the Darlington Dovecoat and upon it she had a tall wicker basket, just perfect for our bedroom hamper, and have to say lucky me yes I got it, all it needed was a lining that I have now made for it….
Now this is the fabric that I chose from my stash, some old retro Hawaiian print, nice and bright to see into the basket, just in case I have missed something that needs washing.Just a quick pick of the outside, the first pic though not brilliant is the inside of the basket, the most important part for here..
