Lots of News

I haven't posted for a while as I have been so busy with lots of quilting. Also I have along with my sister started up a market stall called "Crafty Sisters". Been about 12 months in the making, as Deb lives on a sheep station down past Burra and I am in Adelaide. We chat daily and also catch up when we can in person. Our first market was at the local Scouts Hall. Both of us were so excited and had a ball. We have another 5 markets before the year is out. I have also been busy in my quilting room. Yesterday I finished making a Bionic Bag for myself. It's the second one I have made, first one was sold. This one I have made for myself.

Dreams and Zipper Bags

Lots has changed in my sewing area now I have a few more years under my sewing foot. From starting to quilt in 2008 with never having used a sewing machine to now sewing and selling my items. Also I have even been asked to make items for people as gifts for their friends. One of my dreams has come true, I have joined forces with my sister Deb and we have started a small business, calling it Crafty Sisters. We can be found on Facebook. In the last couple of days I have managed to make 13 zipper bags.  As our first market is on the 22 July. Already I have cushions, mug rugs, children bags and some baby items ready for our table. Next on my list to make are baby change mats. So happy with the direction I am heading in. Life is good.

My Wall Hanger

Over the last few years I have made a few Michele Hill projects and given away as gifts. I though it was time to have one for myself. The last few days I have been working on this wall hanger. Saw it at the Barossa Cottage quilt shop. I was lucky enough to buy the last kit there. Very excited to think this one is staying in the house. I love machine applique and can't wait to see it coming together.
