Coming Up - September 2016

So Canberra Brown Owls, we got a special one for September.  It's our first Canberra Brown Owls Master Class.  Yep you read it right - a Master Class.

Since we ALL raved on so much about how LOVELY Nic's nifty handbag was, designed by Anna Graham of Noodlehead fame, we will be making Trail Totes together at the September meeting and Nic will be helping for those that are a bit rusty on sewing bags. 


 Check our FB event page for the pattern (free on Robert Kaufman website) which outlines all the materials required. There will be a charge for bag hardware (will advise cost before the date). You will need to supply your own fabrics, zippers, interfacing, thread and thin wadding (if you want the bag to be slightly padded). If you have a sewing machine, bring it too.

This is a fun bag that is easy to make. For those that are beginners, we will be there to help you work through the pattern.

We do have a limited workspace so please confirm your attendance!

It's going to be great fun!

Canberra Brown Owls - August 2016

So, here's another post.  Wow!  I'm doing great!!

So for our Canberra Brown Owls - August meet, I thought it might be a lovely idea to start thinking about Spring.  It was only a few weeks away, sure what could go wrong!!  Well, the weather to start.  It was an awful cold, wet and stormy day in Canberra. Luckily we were toasty warm inside the Magpies Club in Kippax.  Our home for the next few meet ups!

So our theme: was to flirt the flamingo and party the pineapple. This month we're going tropical. 

I had chosen two little projects using spring colours: but we only had time for the gorgeous little felt flowers from the August issue of Mollie Makes.


Flowers in the making.
Super fun and easy to make, so they soon started multiplying!!
 


Nic had show and tell.  Good luck on your 100 blocks in 100 days!
Barb made wonderful work of her hexie Christmas Tree!
See you next month!

Canberra Brown Owls - July

Eek!  It's been a WHILE between posts, so time to start sharing photos and project ideas.  We've been having a great time this year.  Let's hope this blog shows that!

So Canberra Brown Owls in July was our Christmas in July meet up.  Any excuse for Christmas right?  So the weather was a bit blustery and wintery, so inside at the lovely venue of Adore Tea was warmth and  yummy food and tea!

We had chosen a few little Christmas projects, perfect for making at the table!

Some of our trees in progress.  Love how different they all look!
Gorgeous tree!  Almost reminds me of apple trees!
Trees.  They were splendid!
