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.

Have you seen the new logo created by 490 Designs isn’t it awesome, Deb is a local lady to me and has done an amazing job.

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.

Did you see these that I released a little while ago on Easy, no! then why not, go check them out and tell your friends and move them on out of my store for me.

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.

That That Quilt, A Step Closer.


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.
