2010 Finale

The finale for 2010 would have to be this all white jacket for a 3-4 yr old child. Made of all the lace pieces from previous projects. It is fully lined with white flanelette for extra warmth & embellished with special buttons & fancy stitches. There are some pieces of lace handkerchiefs & even the word "Love" has been embroidered onto one sleeve. Every time you look at this jacket something new appears....I personally love the scalloped hemline & sleeve edges which have been bound in white 100% cotton for strength & long life. This would be perfect for a wedding or just over jeans to keep the cold at bay.

The last before Christmas.

Here is a red heart hat, top & cream bloomers. They look just lovely on my model "Honey". She is ready for a party!

Here is Shyann dressed for a Christening with cream voile, lace & pearls all smocked onto this pretty romper. The ankles, sleeves & neckline all feature the same pearls & the smocking has been done in #8 DMC cream. I have added cream ribbons to the sleeves & neckline as a final trim.

Merry Christmas to Everyone for 2010

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my loyal & dedicated customers, both new & return, for their patronage throughout the year. Without your support & encouragement in so many different ways, my sewing efforts would be futile. Here is hoping that 2011 will be a prosperous & happy year for us all. Take care during the holiday period & please come visit me again.

The Pastor's Shirt..

Here is a gift to our local Pastor - made of Merry Christmas fabric & embellished with green Christmas tree's & red buttons to reflect the season..... Merry Christmas to all.

Christmas Red

Recently a lady chose this gorgeous little set for a newborn baby who arrived this month in the USA. A fitting gift in the traditional colour of red & white. The bub will be snug & warm in this smocked viyella long sleeved set during the winter Christmas months in the Northern hemisphere.

A delightful Dress

Here is my little Grand-daughter modelling the latest dress. So pretty in pale blue gingham with colonial flowers & vines throughout the smocking & there is a matching bubble for the younger sister worked with the same design.

Another Christmas Tree Idea

Thankyou to the wonderful Grace Lister in the UK who sent me her instructions & pattern for this pretty decorative ball. I chose to do this one from fancy stitches on my sewing machine & it has been put together on the machine also with pinked edges. These balls are beautiful worked with ribbon embroidery or fancywork stitches & blanket stitched together by hand but for speed I have done mine on the sewing machine. This one has 6cm segments to hang on the tree.

Nice & Bright

This little set for a 12 month old girl will look divine on her. Made of 100% cotton with bright lady beetles all over & the black & white tiny spotted insert for contrast on the dress & around the brim of the smocked mopsy hat. Who would have imagined that black on a baby would look very nice but I think you will agree this is just beautiful. The smocking has been done with red, black & white DMC #8 thread & I have added some broderie anglaise laces to highlight the skirt area.
