Christening/Baptism Romper and cape set

I haven't been blogging much lately,as I have been
spending so much time in my sewing room.

I recently had a huge sale on Ebay and cleared most of my stock
of Baptismal/Christening outfits

I had lots of new ideas to create some different sets
This is the first of the new range

Boys romper,cape,hat and shoes in ivory silk

I have an order for another very different one I will show you
as soon as it is completed

This one is smocked in the palest of blue and piped around
the smocking, collar and cuffs

I quilted a whole lot of silk to make the collar and cuffs and band
for the hat

The buttons are self covered on the cape

These are the Christening stoles I also make

This set is available in my Etsy store
or email me at

I am visiting some lovely linky parties this week

I hope you have a happy weekend

A gift I will cherish

I got such a wonderful surprise in the post this week
This beautiful amber glass swan,packed so beautifully
came all the way from the USA to me in Australia

Susan at Writing straight from the Heart 
sent it to me as a gift because I had seen it on her blog and admired it

Doesn't he go so well with my other pretty swan
who is so friendly and so pleased to have company

With the light from window he  shines like gold

Thank you  so much Susan
I so love him

I am joining my usual linky parties this week

Happy week

Pink Transfer ware collection

One of my favourite collections is Pink Transfer ware
I am constantly on the look out for more to make up sets

This one is the English, Dickens Collection
It's so lovely

These are English Myott Country Collection 1982

English Churchill 
I have nearly the whole dinner set of this one,as it is the most
reasonable price

I am visiting the linky parties on my side bar this week
for some more inspiration
I love to see what others are doing

Happy week

A birthday present made with love and Nice little finds

I had a lovely surprise birthday present from my DD Kerry Lee
She is so creative in lots of things and adores love hearts too.
For my birthday recently she included in my many  presents,
this mosaic love heart she made.  It will hang on the wall

I also had a good day thrifting and found some lovely treasures
This little pitcher is just gorgeous,and only cost $5

I was so pleased to find this lovely romantic wedding veil
for only $5
I'm not sure if I can put it to use in a Christening Gown yet,
or whether I just enjoy it as is.

There is something I just can't resist about wedding veils and trains
I think this will be the start of another collection
The lace underneath is an antique wedding train

I made this little dolls petticoat out of some scraps,but although
I have lots of dolls,I didn't have one small enough

I found this little pretty for $3. It just was the perfect size
I now have to make the rest of her clothes

Smocking complete on another little dress to sell on Ebay

I have bought a nice collection of new fabrics which I will be showing
in the near future,all made up into baby dresses.

Happy Week
