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.

Another Shirt Yet Again tee her


IMAG0998About to say well that’s a great shot as all I could see was the top of the table, thought I did better than that last night…

Okay this is yet another shirt finished and put aside in his Christmas pile, so love this fabric (tis craft fabric) it sewed up well did not argue as I put it together all lined up and I even managed to do extra stitch lines, though that does mean the shirt took about 200m (approx 220 yards) of thread to complete.

IMAG1000This is a close up of the collar that I used a different fabric for, kinda like the contrast.

IMAG1001And this is the back view, near perfect alignment of the birds from collar down,,,yay….

Now I know he will see this post, but will just hide the shirt, or maybe even wrap it up so he can not take of with it to wear….
