This and That

 I just haven't been taking part in the blogging world for a few weeks so sorry to my blogging friends that I haven't left a comment on your recent posts. Sometimes I just can't be bothered resizing photos and making the effort to be lucid enough to write a blog post when I can just bury my head in a book :-)

Fabric covered coathangers

 At our recent Simple Living Toowoomba workshop Neralie showed us how to make padded coathanger covers. I had a few questions afterwards about how she covered the hook so she very kindly made another couple of coathanger covers and took photos along the way so that we could have a tutorial.

A Zippy Weekend

 Last Saturday our Simple Living Toowoomba group had another fantastic workshop which was presented by the very talented Neralie and Valda. The topic of this workshop was all about learning to love zippers as a lot of people these days seem to have trouble inserting them. Of course, Neralie made it look super easy as she showed us how to insert a pocket with zipper into a bag then finishing with a zipper on top.

Learn to Love Zippers Workshop ~ Simple Living Toowoomba

Next Saturday on the 13th March our Simple Living Toowoomba group will be holding our second workshop of the year and this one will be so informative as it will be presented by Valda and Neralie who are excellent teachers of all things to do with sewing. You may have seen their handiwork in a blog post I wrote last year after they showed us how to make bunting and bucket hats Bunting and Bucket Hats Workshop.

A Crafty Weekend

 This weekend Craft Alive 2021 is being held in Toowoomba. I imagine the fact that this show was able to go ahead this year is the envy of a lot of my overseas readers some of whom are still in lockdown. I must admit I was a bit surprised myself that it was going to be on but seeing as many sporting events have been going strong for several months and there is no community transmission of COVID-19 in Queensland the organisers were able to go ahead with their plans.
