Thank you Aussie Hero Quilts (and laundry bags) for what you do.
( must have had a little something in my eye when I read it!)
not only is a good way to get rid of that 'what was I thinking' fabric, but I've also discovered that if I use the wrong side of some cream tone-on-tone floral fabric, I can line laundry bags with it and the floral is very muted and only noticeable if you look really closely. I *knew* there was a reason I bought so much of it so long ago!
Hilary made some great points too...
Hmmm, maybe I should get Hilary to do some guest posts - she put that very well.
Anyone interested in attending please let me know.
And please note - this is open to those who sew as well as anyone else who reads the blog. If you support Aussie Heroes we would love you to come too.
Melissa had a great idea and she wrote to me with the following -
Could I throw in a suggestion for the blog???????? - would love to know a little more about people who do the sewing etc. Could you do a sewer of the week on one of the blogs???? Ask for a short paragraph on the person to be emailed and a photo. I would love to know if there is anyone around here that is helping you out or close by.
I think this is a great idea. I did threaten her with being the first contributor and she actually sent me a "Blurb" which you will see on our Inaugural Aussie Hero Friend of the Day Post this Thursday. I am still working out a format or maybe a list of questions and then you can standby and watch your email inbox for an email from me requesting you be the Friend of the Day ............ unless there are any more volunteers!
In the mean time what questions should I ask?
Suggestions? This is what I have come up with so far.
How about a little AHQ quality control? This is Snickers. Now this quilt was sitting on the floor by my sewing machine table while I re-threaded the machine prior to stitching the binding on.
I guess she thought she should check it out to make sure it was up to standard!
She is indeed a quilter's dog! Why lie on your purpose made burgundy dog bed (see it in the background) when there is a spare quilt lying around!
Till next time............keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
