I am so proud of the children who come to me for sewing lessons.
All of them have made beautiful items over the years.
They have all won prizes at the Royal Adelaide Show and country shows,getting first,second and third prizes in their age groups
Today I am featuring Isabel's latest work
She started the Baptismal gown,bonnet, shoes and bib at the beginning of the year
along with other projects,one of which I have shown below.
This is the smocked Baptismal gown
Isabel is 15 and has been coming to me since she was 7
She has won on numerous occasions at the Show,but she has never attempted a gown, only little baby dresses.
This years Royal Adelaide Show is in September and these items will be entered
Isabel completing the matching booties
There are the tiniest roses on the stems of the embroidery,but a little hard to see here.
Isabel is home schooled
and 2 of her sisters also come to sewing lessons and do extremely nice work.
This ABC wall hanging is another of her completed projects ready for the Show
I think her stem stitch is so neat,and she embroiders the most beautiful bullion roses.
The sun was sending shadows across the room when I took the photo.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend
I am joining my usual parties this week listed on my right hand side bar.
