March is just a blur; there has been little chance to do or think about anything other than getting ready for the Australasian Quilt Convention (AQC.) I'm feeling more organised than other years and it's beginning to worry me that I have forgotten something major and the final last minute 'shouldn't take long to do things' will take much longer than anticipated.
The Make & Take kits are done, shipped and in Melbourne ready to be delivered to the show next week.
There are three colours to choose from; Blue, Red and Grey. All the pieces are cut out, leaving the fun part,the stitching, to you.
And there were lots of fiddly bits to cut out.
If you thinking I'm over circles you will be right!
The Make & Take is on each day at 12 noon and goes for 50 minutes. You will be very close to finishing it.
It's a great way to pick up my tips for working with felt, do a little stitching and go home with a project.
The kit costs $15 and includes the pattern and all the materials.
Book and pay for a kit at Stand 167.
I'm feeling quite pleased with myself; this year when I pack my suitcase, I'm not packing plastic! I'm ashamed to admit, I've been packing my shoes in plastic shopping bags. It's taken me at least three years to finally get my act together and make myself some bags for my shoes. I made the bags at Christmas time for gifts. They're simple, quick and practical; it can be a shoe bag, laundry bag or whatever you want it to be bag.
Putting these packs, two Fat Quarters & twill, together for the Shoe Bags was a whole lot more fun than cutting those circles.
How gorgeous do they look! - don't ask me to pick a favourite - they all are.
The packs are $15 each and come with a FREE Shoe Bag pattern.
It's not going to be all about the show over Easter. I'm hoping to squeeze in a little gardening, cooking and sewing - maybe a laundry bag this time.
Have a lovely Easter break.
See you at the show next week.
