I thought I would do some more yarn bombing around Helensville. We started tonight with a couple of small pieces on one of the crossings at school. I wonder how many people will notice? My son wore his balaclava again and took the photos. We went to a galley in Auckland today and watched a short film about some local street artists, very cool.
Thought it was time to show you how my paper piecing is coming along. I really only do it when I am away from home so very slow, great fun and I love how its looking. It will be a very crazy quilt once its done.
We are busy here preparing for a Vintage children's wear fashion show and sale. We had a house full of girls trying on dresses yesterday afternoon. I was given a collection of dresses from the 1970's, and I think some are from the 1960's as part of my Dress a Girl project. I decided they were worth more sold here and the money sent and my daughter came up with the idea of a fashion show. All the money raised is going to Orphans Aid International for a project they run in Uganda, we have already sent some dresses.
The show is Sunday 16th at 1pm at Helensville School hall if any of you fancy a day out.
The fabric is just fantastic, all the dresses are brand new and some still have labels on.
