July was secret sewing month

I only finished 2 projects in July and they are secret laundry bags for Aussie Hero Quilts, so I can't share them in their entirety at this stage.

You'll see the fronts once they are delivered.  :)

I've also started 2 Aussie Hero Quilts & another secret project... so some progress going on but not much to show for it.

Catch you all soon.

June Finishes

June flew past without me noticing. I'm not sure how I didn't notice, I had a birthday and it the school musical and end of term.

I managed a few sewing projects and made quite a good start on others.

This rainbow AHQ was fun to sew and very pretty while sitting on O-Me.

This rainbow theme Aussie Hero Quilt & Laundry bag were finished and sent to the recipient somewhere in the middle east (I think).

 I love it, it is happy and colourful with a little bit of Aussie thrown in for good measure.

The rainbow blocks were made by Aussie Hero Friends from across Australia & I designed, pieced and quilted the quilt.

June's other sewing was another 11 hearts for the 1000 Heart project.  These haven't found a home yet, but I'm sure they will soon.

See you again soon.  My first July finish is almost done.

Costume Finished, Musical Over

My last post was about the Sheriff costume for my son.

Well the musical is over, school is now on holidays and we are onto the next projects.

I promised a photo of the complete outfit, so here it is.

"All Shook Up" was a brilliant production and a credit to the students and teachers.

A special shout out to Broken Record from Redcliffe, Qld who custom made our thank you gifts for the teachers, she CNC Routed the production logo into records. The teachers loved them.

 My two handsome men after the production.
See you again soon.

Costumes and Hearts

Sometimes, the pretty sewing has to be put aside for the 'important' or  "but Mum, I need it tomorrow"  sewing.
That is what this creation is.  A costume for the teenager for the school musical.  
His character is an American Sheriff, so I had to create a uniform for the sheriff.  

Epaulets and pocket triangles added to a fawn coloured shirt seemed to fit the bill.
It appears I forgot to photograph the finished shirt.  Oh well the production is on in the next couple of weeks, I'll try to remember then.

The Sheriff also needed a holster for his pistol.  You cant see it, but it is sewn.  Got to love having a craft cupboard of random fabrics. I knew the black vinyl would be handy eventually. LOL.

 My 'no stress' sewing lately has been felt pocket hearts for the 1000 Hearts Project.  These pretties were sent to an acquaintance who's had a tough time lately.  One for herself and others to share with her  local support crew.  If you are interested, pop over here to find out more about the 1000 Heart Project.

Catch you again soon.

An Unexpected Project

Sometimes projects just happen.
My youngest child has a banana pillow and every time we wash it it makes me gag.  No matter what I do it won't come clean. (No, I have no idea why we purchased a white pillow case).

So Saturday saw me digging out some long forgotten fabrics to create a couple of pillow cases that I can live with.

The old pillow case made the perfect pattern
 and we now have bright balloons
 and colourful crayons.
 These are fabrics that I'm not even sure why I had them.  I'm very glad they are now in a project.

So 2 more finishes for May OPAM and no feral pillowcase to have to look at.

Catch you soon.
