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.


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.

Butchers Apron Teaser (hence only part seen)

DSCN2234Now I had a request to have a go at making a butchers apron, and in my own style, me template was a butchers apron still bearing it’s marks of trade, the only proviso was that it was made of stronger fabric. So this is what I cam up with, it is double sided with long ties to go around a belly (as most of our men seem to have), something to do with it is great to tie in front and roll over the tops (not the belly roll over that is).

Please give me some feed back as it would be good to hear your thoughts on this one, if you like it I will add it to my sales line.

Custom Order Bedspread

Okay tis close with the heading, more like son ordered for Christmas a new bedspread, and can I make it different, well yes I can, I can use up some of the denim jeans and shorts from the box and cut out and form a relaxed quilted style, oh and mum can you put these weird eye ball things on it as well, um yes I can (not done yet). What will he ask for next?
