Christening dress and accessories for gorgeous neice :)

Knitted booties, headband with broderie anglaise accent and gown with knitted bodice and sooo soft skirty bit...Handmade...gotta love it.

My sister had her eye on a very expensive gown, which I tried my best to recreate. I fretted over this more than I have ever fretted about anything I have made. Then the post took forever to deliver it too... But it got there in the end. I still haven't seen pictures of Jenny in it though. They live in England and I am on the other side of the world :( Hint hint!!!

We have internet!!!!!


After two weeks away...I am giddy to be able to get back online. I am painting the office/sewing room this morning and can not wait to get my machine set I have so many ideas, sew sew sew...can not wait!!!

I actually sewed my first thing yesterday...a custom Christening gown for a lovely Etsy customer. I was so excited to get my machine out... but I've made a mess of the dining room now. I can't sew tidily, I manage to get everything everywhere.

So, on with the painting...I've actually decided to do make a blog just for the house renovations, as this one is supposed to be just for sewing. I will probably start over the next few days.

So happy that we are finally moving...yay!

We wont have any phone lines for the first couple of weeks, so this will be my last post until then :(

However, once we're in, I will have a fancy sewing room and I can not wait to get into my stash and under my presser foot again.

Thanks for reading
