Avery's dress

Have not posted for such a long time! I have been sewing every day and little time to do much else. Avery loves to wear dresses so this is a recently completed one. Hopefully this will fit well and I can make her several more and vary the pattern.

Christening gown.

Made from Swiss Nelona and French Val laces. Started in 1999 , packed away unfinished ! Completed July 2011. Thankfully I stored all pieces carefully and intact. Guess I knew I would finish it eventually ! Just a final press to go.

Avery's hat and a baby's bonnet.

My grandaughter loves pink !

The baby's bonnet not very practical for the child of today. A project I completed in a class held at The Cumberland as part of "Stitching in the Snow". Sadly, Marysville was devastated in the 2008 bushfires. Slowly the town is being restored but The Cumberland is now a stretch of grassland.

An iron cot from the mid 1800 's

I just love the cot....even though space to keep it is difficult. It is slightly uneven...no doubt well used in its previous life! I wonder how many tiny babies slept here?

My sleeping porcelain baby.

For a short time I was interested in making porcelain dolls. Harry is my first.....and last. He is wearing a gown of ivory winter twill with tucks and embroidery. The second pic shows his baby "gumnut" cap. I knit these in the car while travelling to see our interstate families.
