Pillowcases for Oncology Kids

The Handmade Cooperative recently did a call out for people to make at least 1 pillowcase for the charity Pillowcases for Oncology Kids (POK).  this charity was founded in 2011 by 15 year old Brittany who had also been through her own cancer journey.  The aim of the charity is to provide a special pillowcase for those children in hospitals around Australia also suffering though this dreadful disease.

I have had a chance to make one pillowcase so far using appliques from my Kokeshi Doll quilt pattern and hopefully a few more at least.

If you would like to join in this wonderful cause you can find out more info here at the Handmade Cooperative Facebook page

Discovering Mixed Media Art

Well as you can see I'm still alive lol :) just haven't been doing a lot of sewing. My sewjo took an extended vacation!
Actually I have done a little but the project went on a little trip and I don't have it back yet and only have really bad photos.
I haven't been reading any blogs either so I have an awful lot to catch up on!

In the meantime I have discovered the glorious world of mixed media art and I LOVE IT!!!  And it's kind of quicker than sewing a quilt ;)

There will be more quilting I promise.  My little boy starts Kindy this year so I will have some CHILD FREE TIME!  A few new quilt designs are on the cards.

But in the meantime this is what I have been doing.

See you soon!
