Foxes' pillowcases and new tatting project

Hello dear readers!
These New Year holidays were very busy. My mother in law were with us here and we were traveling a lot and I didn't have enough time to sew. In spite of this hot time I could complete my  pillowcases, so here they are

I love them a lot because I like the orange color. The foxes' personage for these pillowcases came to my mind when I saw my friends' dog, I love this dog so much and she looks and behaves like a fox.
When we were in the eastern part of Sydney I found an interesting fabric shop, prices there were reasonable and I bought fabric for tunic and dress for my daughter. As decorative element for the tunic I decided to make tatted lace. So I've started the process and made one element.
The pattern for this element I took here. This blog belongs to a very talented  woman. Thanks her a lot for this pattern. I couldn't say that it's very easy pattern, it's necessary to know how to make a cluny leaf. I specially took a lesson for it last week. So it's not difficult when someone explain. I've got a good explanation, many thanks Lyall, my teacher.

Thank you for your visit. I'll appreciate your comments. See you soon.

Pelican feeding

 Hello dear readers!
Who loves pelicans? I do.I like this unusual birds, they are my favorite ones after owls.  Today we were in the place where everyone has an opportunity to feed pelicans.  This place is located near Sydney and you can find this place in Google. There is a free parking near it. The feeding started at 3.30 p.m.It's for free but you need to buy some fish if you want to feed pelicans on your own. When the feeding performance starts the place for feeding becomes very crowd.  It could be very interesting for children.

Thank you for your visit. See you soon.

Hello in the New year!!!

This is the first post in 2015. All the gifts were given and now I can show you some of them. I made two pillowcases for my relatives and friends. Here they are
This one is for our good friends and their dogs. I love them so much. Making this pillowcase I tried to print on fabric in the first time.
For the pillow bellow I used the permanent sticks ( Pentel) to make the picture. Hope it's washable.

 See you soon.
