Last week the kids had their 140 years celebrations at school which went wonderfully well. The kids loved dressing up and they looked fabulous. They also all got to spend some time experiencing a classroom with old desks and slate boards, and lessons as they would have been back then. The week concluded with a fun bush dance and there will be some other events going on later in the year I think. Here are a couple of photos I took of them before they went off the school in their outfits.
Today I have made some more book page bunting, this time sewing it to some lace from my stash of inherited lace.
I found this book in an op shop and just fell in love with the illustrations. They are so quirky.
It was then just a case of choosing some of the similarly sized pictures, cutting them out and sewing them to the lace.
There are a couple of larger images that I would like to frame at a later date too.
