A Chance to Grow your Blog Party 2014 and a Giveaway

 Vicki Boster, a dear friend, of
2bagsfull Blog
 has generously offered to host another
Grow Your Blog Party for 2014

 for bloggers to showcase
their blogs and to offer to connect new bloggers and old bloggers with each other
 as well as providing an opportunity to make new friends
and to share their talents with each other.

There is much to learn in having a successful blog
and there are many wonderful bloggers
willing to help and assist
where they can.
All you need to do is ask!!!

Vicki is one of those special people always looking to lend a hand
by thinking up ways to raise funds for those in a less fortunate
situation than herself e.g. Pink Scarf Project for women
with breast cancer amongst many others
I thought I would join in the party in support and welcome
all new bloggers and old friends and followers
into my little world of blogging here
where I live in the country
on a beautiful property in an old world garden of
rambling roses on the far south coast of

My name is Suzy Quaife and below is the studio where
I work (play!!!)

I have had a great love of vintage textiles, rich and exotic
fabrics (like silks and satins), vintage laces, doilies, braids, trimmings, velvet ribbon etc. since I can't remember when going way back even as a child.

This love was expressed through costume making and crazy patchwork for several years and more recently it has
taken the shape of mixed media fabric and paperworks.
I have found that bloggers love to see images (and the more the
better) to help them become inspired so be prepared to see heaps!).
They love to see where you create, what you create with and 
the finished creations.

This collage gives a sample of the items I create
and here is a sampling of the materials used in some of these,

 e.g. vintage doilies and laces

buttons, feathers, pods

sari ribbons, jewellery including rhinestones

more laces, seam binding,

tea bags, string, stamps, raw silk, mohair
and many small rusted pieces which I can incorporate into
collages/assemblages such as this. 

Of course one of my greatest passions is in creating
fabric lace books and journals and the collages
which form the layered pages

Daguerreotype images for the theme of this lace book above
and below another theme is that of nature

The many hand stitched layered pages form the background
for these Australian birds or a collection of
gifts from friends are held inside this book

Then sometimes I just love to create free standing
collaged and layered wall hangings using
vintage jewellery with tins and chains
and similar things.

Bags, purses and totes have been other items on my
project list this past year

along with garlands (reminiscent of Buddhist prayer flags)
 such as these as well as the smaller
creations of boxes and cards and mini collages 

Now that you have persevered and finally arrived at the bottom
of this post you are rewarded with a chance to win
this Giveaway - a vintage style brooch
created by me which may be pinned to anything
that appeals to you!

All you need to do is leave one comment here on this page.
You don't need to be a follower but you are certainly
welcome to follow and I will draw a winner
on Saturday, 15th February 
so don't forget to leave me your email address
so that I may contact you.

*** Please feel free to pin this GIVEAWAY
on the sidebar of your blog to tell others!

I wish you luck in the draw and more importantly
I wish you much success and enjoyment with
your blog as it is in the sharing like
this that we receive
inspiration, acknowledgement and a chance to make
wonderful friends!


Thank you so much Vicki for the most amazing hours
of dedication you have given this party for the
benefit of so many bloggers.
We appreciate you heaps! xxx

Love and hugs, Suzy
