June 8 2011 Quilting Newsletter


Hi everyone, Iíve been busy tidying up my sewing room and Iím coming to the conclusion that I have too much stuff. I have always been a bower bird and am reluctant to let anything crafty or possibly crafty to get anywhere near a trash can. Therefore I have an enormous amount of stuff, stuff, stuff. What to do? Iím guessing that Iím not alone. We quilters just canít help ourselves. I love being able to use textiles and bibs and bobs that would otherwise be sent to the garbage, and Iím sure thereís lots of quilters out there nodding their heads. Arenít we special!!!

I donít want to dump it. So thatís out. I donít want to just give it to anyone. I really want it to go where itís needed the most. Enter Ė the local preschool. Boy do they have a place for my recycled stuff. I boxed up lots of stuff and drove on down to the centre. The leaders there couldnít have been more grateful. The stuffing, buttons, tapes, threads, ribbons, bottle tops, batting, webbing, and fabrics are going to be used to make wonderful creations by tomorrows artisans. I feel very angelic!!

Iíve been busy gathering my embellishments in readiness for my first fabric postcard. Last week I told you about the new postcard swap that is being organised here in Oz, but is opened to quilters from all over the world. Well, this week, I posted an article on how to make a postcard. Hereís the link if youíre interested: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art171894.asp

Iíve found some great links for you this week. I hope you can use some of them.
