One of the promises I made myself this year was to blog regularly. Here we are almost half way through the year and it's obvious I'm failing. I will try to do better.
One of the unexpected benefits of taking part in the Great Australian Craft Show #3, was a rethink of my workspace and the introduction of a handful of small changes. Life changing is an exaggeration, but I'm thrilled. Rearranging a shelf, bringing in another table and having a tub for the post has made an unbelievable difference!
Setting up for the next Great Australian Craft Show 2 - 5 July, was quicker, less stuff to relocate from the tables and a knowledge of how to hang the quilts.
The quilts on display are Sarah's Sampler (1855), Coconut Ice - in the corner, Garden Party - the pink quilt you can just see and Round the Garden - over the main table.
One of the benefits of an online show, is I don't need to put out stock which means more room for samples!
The pattern Sew Organised was released at the show.
I feel so more organised now I can see what's in my project pouches. I'm hoping it will keep me focused! The drawstring container looks so cute. I plan to make a few and have them on a shelf filled with those items I never seem to be able to find in the cupboard like my quilting clips.
Open Saturday 10 April 10am - 1.30 pm. At Mirambeena Community Centre, Martha Mews, Lavington.
Can't make it: Orders can be emailed or placed online.
I've been designing quilts and other sewn items for decorating and use around the home, since 2003. I especially love making quick things and gifting them to family and friends. My favourite techniques include needle turn and felt appliqué, stitching, hand and machine piecing. I live on the Victorian/NSW border, Australia.
