Oh my goodness where has the time gone... we enjoyed 2 months traveling in the caravan from Central Queensland to the southern most point in Victoria along Great Ocean Road & had a wonderful time... I did smocking & patchwork along the way but nothing major... been so busy on our return. We have decided to sell up & move a little further South, towards the Toowoomba area so all the stops have been pulled out & the packing has almost been completed, house is being listed with the real estate so it has been a particularly busy few months.  Here are a couple of things I have completed since coming home but most fabrics etc have been packed in boxes till we move... can't seem to find anything!! lol.. 

This is one of 5 gowns I made for a client for reborn dolls. I have now joined up to make teeny dresses from Wedding Gowns for "Angel Babies". The gowns are cut into pieces & remade... they are gorgeous....
This is the progress to date on the Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt I was working on while traveling.

The little sewing kit was another traveling project.

And here is a little dress I completed a while back, smocked bodice & button back... Doesn't Miss S look lovely wearing it...

Hooty Owls...

Making children's clothing is such fun with all the gorgeous 100% cotton fabrics available today.  This one really caught my eye due to the big eyed Owls all over it, these are a child's delight at the moment & very popular with many Mummy's.. the sleeves & neckline are smocked with DMC thread in Red for the sleeves & Red & Black for the neckline.  The design around the neckline forms tiny hearts all the way around... this one is a size 2-3 yr ......

Christening Gown of cream lace & satin.

I think my most loved sewing experience is making Christening gowns - either smocked or lacey.  They are so pretty & dainty for that special occasion.  This one is made of lace overlay with cream satin underskirt & the sleeves have two rows of wide cream lace which matches the lace on the hemline & down each side front.... so pretty.

Stripes for Cool Summer Days.

This is made of 100% cotton & the stripe design lends itself really well to smocking... a fully smocked bodice & lovely cute puff sleeves finish the details nicely.

More Holiday Fun!

 A few more in different fabric choices.... how lovely a little one would look in this selection.
