Ruffler Foot Made Sew Easy It's Hands Free!

If you've ever used a ruffler foot you will know you need to guide your fabric carefully.

I've been making a Victorian Gown. That means lots of ruffley goodness. I have about 150 meters of ribbon I'm using on this project most of which I've been pleating using my sewing machines ruffler foot. 
Carefully guiding that much yardage through would drive me insane!

I needed a way to make it easy and fast without needing a lot of concentration.

I needed to automate guiding that ribbon through.

It's so easy and simple and effective I can't believe I didn't think of this earlier.

Rest and Reflect

Black Boy Hill 

Black Boy hill was once covered in the unique plant for which it was named. In 1914 the site was cleared to make a camp for volunteer service men. The site remains a memorial site to our soldiers, planted out with grass trees (black boys) and rosemary for remembrance

Australian flag flies at half mast in honour of our ANZAC's

It has been a wet morning


Flowers 

The laying of wreaths and flowers is customary at ANZAC memorial services. 

Elaborate and expensive wreaths are often left by council members and shire representatives. 


There are the flowers brought from home wrapped with a little tin foil to maintain freshness.


The flowers accompanied by a personal message by those whose lives have been directly touched by the sacrifice of our soldiers.

Remember the ANZAC's that did not return home

And the sweet home made attempts to create wreaths and bouquets.
