Don’t Look Now!

Don’t Look Now!

Now you all know I don’t sew……..well I did once……….in 8th grade……..I made a smock……it was a navy blue quilted number with red ruffles………but I have never sewn since. My mother was big into sewing and would make almost ALL my school clothes……..but my mom was never one of those June Clever kind of crafters. My clothes were made with some very colorful language……..it was quite the event to have my mom make an outfit……..She wasn’t very careful about removing all the pins either………….see….theres so much more behind my fear of sewing.
So you can imagine my shock when I saw this stuff. I doubt she had language as colorful as the pillow……if she did, at least it was with a darling accent.

It totally reminds me of paper piecing……..you know the stuff we scrapbookers used to do to make cute little embellishments. But this is so over the top creative. It also reminded me of the style of scrapbooking the scrappers do in Australia……….and wouldn’t you know it………….she’s from there. What is it with these Aussies? Is it something in the water? Is it their healthcare system? Whatever it is………they are the most creative bunch I have come across.
She even has a tutorial on this pillow. I’m tellin right now…….she could be standing in my craft room giving me step by step instructions and I would still be lost.
This is stunning…….It’s no wonder she’s been published in a popular quilting magazine. Heck she should have her own magazine!

I’m lovin the circles. I love traditional quilts………but I’d have to say I’m a pretty big fan of these new designs. She is so good at placing colors together. If you are a quilter or at least have a bit of sewing experience………..or I should say a bit of sewing ambition……..then you must know she also sells quilt patterns. I suppose I would be very excited about that IF I knew how to sew………..or had the inclination that I could.This busy mum has four children and lets just say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. This below……….is something her daughter made………9 yr old daughter. Yea…….well, I can scrapbook. Her daughter even won a bunch of prizes for this in a contest. I doubt even Martha Stewart was this talented at that age. And if you’re one of her children…..you get the coolest parties. I can so tell the other mom’s on her block hate her.Look at that cake! More circles. These kids don’t come home with a bag full of crap as a goody bag……….heck they get their very own shirt made by her! This was for an Artsy Party……she made them all matching shirts……could you just die? Yep………pretty sure the other moms hate her. :) More examples of the shirts she makes. Another amazingly talented woman! Enjoy……….please stop by her blog and tell her how you found her.
