Isabel's beautiful work

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.

Dear Jeanetteann, these works are gorgeous and very romantic.

Such beautiful pieces, she seems very talented...must be because she has a wonderful teacher.

Isabelle is a talented little girl! What a beautiful baby gown she has sewn. She is an expert sewer. I will probably never achieve her level of expertise.

Oh my--Isabel does gorgeous work! I didn't know you teach--that is awesome. One of Janae's friends had a baby the other day--the first of her group of friends to have a "real" baby and not a 4-legged one:) It was so wonderful to see that precious baby at the hospital. There are so many beautiful gowns and things for babies. I can't wait for Grandchildren!

These are such beautiful pieces, especially Isabel's Baptismal gown. Oh, how I wish I could sew, but never learned. You must have a lot of patience. Blessings to you!
