A few have their gathering stitch now
The latest Aussie hero quilt is finished and ready to go in the post in the morning
My helper showing his best side!!
the request was for deer hunting, German wire haired pointers (dogs) and the Roman numeral 3. I hope he likes it!!
Quilt and box of goodies packed and ready to be sealed.
Always good to grab a family photo when we are all together!
I have started a new Wasgij.....yep jigsaw backwards, the picture on the box is not the puzzle you are doing
the picture is from the perspective of the fish on the back wall! Keep the gray matter active!
I was sent this wonderful present from Ondrea, a beautiful stitched pincushion, pins and wash cloth...in my favourite colours too!! Thank you very much Ondera, you are a lovely person!
The Guild in Geelong was approached to make some quilts to be used for reading circles with Mums and children or carers and children. They are being used in a new group to encourage reading together. So the guild has taken this challenge up, I cut up a panel and now am putting plain fabric around them in different widths.
here are a few joined together...just playing with ideas, I will have to see how it grows.
There is a fun swap over at Anthea's blog..I will do a little cut and pasting
it is all about Australia Day
FIVE items are chosen & sent to your partner. They each must start with one letter from the word AUSTRALIA & at least one item must bear the Australian flag.
Here's some ideas - have fun being as creative as you like:
*A - Australian flag item such as serviettes, paper bunting, little cocktail glass flags/umbrellas
*U - utensil, utterly gorgeous lace
*S - seeds for flowers/herbs, stripey fabric, small sunscreen, sewing thread
*T - craft trims, tea towel (patriotic?), tape measure, tealight candle
*R - rubber bands, ribbon, red buttons, recipe
*A - aqua fabric, apple-print fabric, Australian Tea
*L - lovely hand cream, lollies, liquorice
*I - infuser for tea leaves, ice cube tray, re-usable ice cubes, gel ice pack
*A - Australian fabric, apron, aloe gel
(for example, you might send items starting with A, I, L, R & T)
Label each item with the letter they represent & your own description of that - wrapping of individual items is senders choice.
All items may be purchased - no requirement to make anything.
Please only send FIVE items - strictly no extras - this hopefully gives you enough scope to make this a fun swap, but keep postal costs reasonable.
It is good fun, I did it last year.
See what I mean, fun!! I hope the model is ok with me sharing this photo!!
I had better head off back to the sewing machine and do some more creating.
