About Me

With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Hand sewn quilt for charity

Carolyn is a machine. A hand sewing, quilt producing machine.
She is also very generous with her skills.
This fully hand sewn quilt was made by her to donate to the St George Lantern Club to raffle off to raise money for the North Rocks Deaf and Blind School.

You can see Carolyn peeping around the side there.
I am so impressed with the fact that she never uses a sewing machine! My very first sampler quilt was started about 14 years ago... all by hand.... and it is still sitting in my cupboard in pieces. I should get it out again. Every stitch made is a stitch closer to the finish. It's not making any progress just sitting in my craft cupboard! I was making it for my son Jacob and every time I sew something else he says... "How's my quilt going Mum?" 
Oh dear, I just remembered I have told this story before and you are probably thinking... "Stop talking about it and just get the thing finished!!!"

Thanks for the inspiration Carolyn!
