Brooches Dust Team Swap

Just thought I'd share what I received in the Dust Team Swap for June 2009!

My swap partner this month was Kalliopi from Kalliopi Handmade

This isn't the actual picture of the brooches I received, because as soon as the parcel arrived my girls whisked them away and claimed them as their own. The ones I received are very similar to this just different colors.

I made Kalliopi this Bag

I've enjoyed swapping with the Dust Team members and have signed up for the next swap already!

Personalised Bunting

How sweet is this Personalised Bunting.

I had a special request to make a Personalised Bunting. There are many Beautiful Baby Buntings available, I think I did a pretty good job of it, and they were absolutely thrilled to receive their own. What do you think?

DUST Team Swap June 2009

I'm addicted to bag making at the moment. Here is my latest using gorgeous Robert Kaufman fabric.

It's a great grocery shopping bag, RECYCLE! and looks much nicer than those GREEN Bags!

It's reversible, you know I love 2 bags in one!

But this bag is not for me, it's part of the Dust Team Swap and this one is being sent away to some one lucky. Can't wait till I have a collection of these of my own.

Turn the bag inside out for a completely diffterent look!

PINK is in!

PINK in currently touring the country! I only know this because my daughter told me so, I'm getting old I think. Love her music though.

Here are my latest PINK orders, they are for pink lovers. I also have a special Pink bag in mind for a special someone that loves Pink! ;P

Personalised Bag Love

It's nice to find out that some one really likes my Personalised Bags.   Some one originally received a couple as a gift and has requested me to make another.  It's a great feeling!

Finally FInished Week 5

My Carry All Bag was beginning to look like it might end up in the Work in Progress tub but I'm happy to say that it's Finally Finished.  It really didn't take me long to make once I sat down and didn't let anything get in the way.  I made a decision to make it reversible so I could have 2 bags in one!

I chose the red and blue fabric from my stash to begin with, I'm very happy with how it looks.

Then for the reversible inside of the bag.  I used a recyled denim skirt and some cute lady bird fabric from my stash.  I really like how this one looks to! So turn it inside out and this is another bag!

I used it today filled with all the necessities, food and drink, phone, money, key, nappies and more food.

The pattern was designed by Nicole Mallalieu

To see previous Finally Finished projects
Week 1:  Butterfly Wall Hanging
Week 3:  Zip Pouch 
Week 4:  Apron

Finally Finished! Week 4

Finally finished another Work in Progress from the tub.  I remember that I just had to have this market/vendor apron so everything stopped so I could sew it up.  Well, I mustn't have wanted it too badly because there it was almost finished.  The photo is a bit blurry because I had to take it of myself in the mirror

I baked some of my favorite Choc chip Cookies, mind you I've already eaten 3 and the apron worked a treat.

My challenge to complete an unfinished craft project is going well so far and I'm quite pleased with my progress.

Class Room back in time

The girls went and visited an old school on the weekend.  Very "Little House on the Prairie" style set up.

They got to write on slates with chalk and complained about the uncomfortable chairs.  It was so different to today's class room.
