My New Design Wall...

I have always wanted a design wall but the price tag has always stopped me.
Well I'm lucky enough to have a Handy Husband
 who was only too happy to help me make one,
 OK, he probably did more than I did but I had to
 take action shots, :)
It's not the super gorgeous but it will keep me happy.
This is a photo heavy blog but it might help you build your own!!!

Two pieces MDF laying on Wadding
Staple Gun very Handy...
Ready for Hinges...
Hinge placement...

Now outside, this is the back of the design wall
Spray adhesive...
Adding more wadding to the back...
Now neat and tidy when I close the design wall...
Finished product!!!!
A big Thank You to my Hubby for making this for me,
now all the projects that I haven't started because
 I don't want to crawl around on the floor I can Do...

My new Sister Kelli has passed an award on to me , it's called the Liebster Award.

It's for Blogs will less than 300 Followers that don't get the recognition they deserve (Oh Shucks...)
I also get to pass it on to 3 of my favorite blogs to visit.
Here Goes....

1. Creativity amongst chaos, this site is a must visit, Cori has the most amazing little birdie applique quilts.
She is currently doing a BOM called Rosie Tweet.
I have signed up for it so you will see my blocks as I make them.

2. And then what'd she say, I get a lot of inspiration from Ruth as she is a little Quirky with everything she creates.

3. Stitchnbits, What can I say , Amelia has very similar tastes to me so I always like to see what she's up too.

Please go visit these blogs, you will be very inspired by these clever ladies,

Queensland, Australia is in dire need of your help, with flooding creating havoc across the state.
Brisbane, Australia's Third Largest City, population of over 2 million has been inundated with water ,
 75% of Queensland has been affected by flooding and is now considered a major disaster zone.


 In conjunction with Toni of Make It Perfect, and a whole heap of Bloggers we are offering sales, auctions, raffles and giveaways. Toni has a master list of all the happenings up on her blog.

 Where else will you have the chance to get a $5 Layer Cake

I am offering a Sherbet Pips Layer Cake as the prize - it will go to the person randomly chosen as the winner on Monday 24th.  
That means you have until Sunday 23rd  at midnight to comment.

Please read carefully:

This giveaway is open to everyone no matter where you live.

I will cover all postage costs.

To enter this giveaway you must donate $5 to the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal.

You may enter as many times as you like but each entry / donation must have a separate receipt number. (eg: donate $5 ten times if you want to donate $50- then comment ten times with your receipt number and yep its a pain in the bum, but that is as fair as I can make it folks)

After you have done this , return here and leave your comment with your receipt number.

If you don't have an account to leave a comment you can click on my profile and email me your name and receipt number and I will comment for you.

I mean, is there really something better you can do with only $5 than to give it to the people affected by the floods.

I doubt it.
