Leanne and her camera.

Yesterday I was visited by a good friend of mine Leanne Leach. Little did I know that she was going to bring her camera.

I just wanted to share with you these fabulous photos she took in between chatting,having a well earned cuppa and eating chocolate cake.

This is one of my 4 baby sewing machines ..yes i am a bit of a collector of vintage sewing machines, old wooden spools of thread ..and well anything related to sewing for that matter.

Some of the little goodies in the studio shop.

Till next time and more chocolate cake!

Little Hands!

I was really taken back in the school holidays by the "little ones", as I watched 4 and 5 year olds learning how to sew. They amazed me how enthusiastically and diligently they stitched and decorated their dolls. Of course a little help was needed threading the needle and untangling a few tangles....
A little bit on concentration is required...

One of the best parts of the class was choosing a button (or two) for the dolls hair and of course giving their new little doll a name.
After lots of giggles and lots of stuffing the dolls were ready to take home and just be loved.
How amazing are our kids!!
