Don't you love it when you can finally share a good secret?!
Some of my Gum Tree Designer sisters and I have been keeping a secret from another Gum Tree Designer sister for the last few weeks.
About a month ago, Fiona posted all of us a copy of her Florentine Doily pattern, (cause she is the sweetest friend!) ...
...and we thought it would be heaps of fun to all make one and then swap amongst each other - but without telling Fiona until we'd posted them off to our swap partner!
So, Fiona, the secret is out! We all loved making your doily design, and each of us will soon have a fellow Gum Tree Designer's version of your pattern displayed in our homes!
I finished mine on Saturday, and because I'm not the biggest fan of yo-yos I added a ruffled edge instead.
The fabrics in my doily are Aster Manor, and today I posted it off to ..... more secrets. LOL!
You see, Blossom drew the swap names on Saturday and she would only tell each of us who to send TO. We don't know who we'll be receiving FROM until the mailman arrives. Cheeky girl she is. ;-)
If you have a look at the other girl's blogs you'll find photos of their doilies in the next day or so.
I'm having a lot of you asking about our little Lily Rose. Well, at 14 weeks old she isn't so little anymore...
She likes to lay across my feet when I sit out the back. They go numb after a while...
This morning was the Grade 11 class in Home Ec, so I took some photos of what the girls are making for you to see. They are all working so hard, and the projects they are making are so varied!
We have a hat...
...some tie-dyed pants
...a sports shirt
...a pencil case (Blossom's)
...a floor pillow
...a bean bag
...and even things with faux fur!
Considering the girls only do 9 weeks of sewing per year they are doing fabulous! This is only week 6, but in week 9 I will show you their finished projects.
Tomorrow it is the Grade 12 class so I'll take some photos of what they are doing to show you as well.
On Wednesday it is Blossom's 16th birthday!
To celebrate I am having a giveaway...more details then!
Have a lovely week!
