Now since my experimentation with different art forms I decided to open another Etsy shop called On A Whimsey http://onawhimsey.etsy.com/ This was because my new items will not be sitting too well in my Precious Quilts shop http://preciousquilts.etsy.com/ which specialises in baby quilts and crochet blankets!
Another experiment (for me!) is quilted postcards. Here is my first attempt which is not good enough to sell but I will try to improve it. Still, I thought it was fun!
This I have entitled Mr & Mrs Piggy Valentine! I fuzzy cut the piggies, placed them on some bright yellow gingham with a big red felt heart beside them.
However, for the traditionalists amongst you, I have made a Victorian style christening cape which you will find in my PQ shop. Actually, I am in the process of completing another which I made in white but am adding pearlised beads to the edging to make it all that more precious!
Here is the first one I made in a pale cream/off white mixed fibre yarn:-
All I need is the baby to demonstrate:)

So, the real purpose of our long journey was to attend the wedding. What a day.... as perfect as you could imagine.
The venue was in an old part of Watson Bay area called Vaucluse where Vaucluse House stands.
Set in ten of its original 206 hectares, Vaucluse House survives as the only 19th century Sydney harbour-side estate with house, kitchen wing, stables, kitchen garden and outbuildings. From 1827 until 1853 it was the family home of William Charles Wentworth, explorer and statesman, his wife Sarah, and their family..
