Strawberries and Cream

What's a party without plump, juicy, fragrant strawberries, with lashing of whipped fluffy cream. I love mine on a shortcake, that's crisp and buttery mmmmmmmm yummo! Or on a pavlova with mangos, blueberries and more strawberries.

Here is little strawberry goodie coming to your from Cherub's Kiss, it's a collaboration with Margo from The Climbing Tree, something just perfect for those hot summer days for your sweet little Cherub.

You can stop guessing!!

I hope you enjoyed guessing our theme for this month.

The theme is
'Ebony and Ivory'

or in other words Noir et Blanc or Black and white.

Think musical notes, vintage cars, zebras and a multitude of 
gorgeous and original creations from
the Gossamer Dreams Team

A sneak peek from one of our guests

I am ever so curious! This sneak peek is from one of our 'Welcome to Wonderland' guest WAHMs - the very clever Sandy from Hobgoblin House. Welcome Sandy!

I can't wait to see the rest!

Tuesday, April 5, 2011

Hello April!

I'm so glad its April - the weather is cooling down, the days are becoming shorter, and school holidays and Easter are on the way!

Our theme this month is:

'Welcome to Wonderland'.

Welcome to Wonderland is all about fairytale and whimsy. We have been delving into the imagination of a child - into fantastical worlds, with enchantment and magic, heroes and heroines. We've explored age old stories which are still loved by children today, featuring fairy godmothers, princesses, giants, dragons and wizards. We've had a lot of fun!

We have some very special guest WAHMs lined up, and I cannot wait to see what they've been up to - I'm very sure this month is going to be amazing!

I hope you enjoy what we have to offer. Gossamer Dreams will be previewing from 9am AEST, Friday 15th April.

Fruits of the Harvest

Another sparkling Guest WAHM - Natalie from Moederkip joins us.

I can't wait to see the finished product! Fingers crossed it's a size 4 lol!!

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

Welcome to ....

Another guest WAHM - Tracee from Whizz Kidz

She'll have things for big kids along with her fantastic OSFM nappies. One of my favourites when I had littlies in nappies.

Tuesday, March 8, 2011

Orchard ....

One of my favourite prints of all time! Its hand-printed in Melbourne by Pippijoe - will I be able to share?

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

And welcome to March!

Wow the year is certainly flying by - are you participating in the Cloth Nappy Hunt?  If you are, hope those pesky icons are driving you too insane.

Now onto Gossamer Dreams, we have some wonderful Guest WAHMs lined up, some woolies, some nappies and some gorgeous little treats for boys and girls.  Keep an eye on the Facebook page or Blog to see those little peeks!

I suppose I'd best tell you the theme then?

'Home Grown'

So what does that mean?
Think farmyard, orchard, flowers and fruit.

And here is my first little offering, it's transforming into a nappy of course, but she's a cute little cow, with hand embroidered detail for her thatch of hair and cute fluffy tail and a few other bits and pieces as well.

There will be some lovely sets between me and a woolie mama, more details to come and a RoarKiss Collaboration as well.

Friday, February 11, 2011

A sneak peek from one of our Guesties this month - something divine from HowieandCharlie...

Welcome to February

And just where is the year going???? It's already February.

We have some lovely Guest WAHMs this month, a couple of oldies lol! and a brand spanking newbie, that does gorgeous children's wear.

After the last few heartbreaking weeks in Australia, from floods, to bushfires to mammoth cyclones we decided that we needed to be


And that's our theme for the month - inspired by Japanese fabrics and calm and collective thoughts.

I hope you enjoy this months stocking.

8pm on the 15th February for 24 hours only.

This little peek is from our newest Guest.

Flood Fundraising from Cherub's Kiss and Outrageous!

Just a scan of the donation - this was money from Cherub's Kiss auctions and Outrageous! jewellery from the Gossamer Dreams Stocking on the 15th January.

Thank you to everyone that purchased or bid to raise this awesome amount.

We deposited it to the Salvation Army Flood Appeal through Woolworths as they were matching dollar for dollar the funds donated, which means twice as much to those that will need it the most in the coming weeks and months.

Pink and Green Delight!

The main fabric, with the leaves, is from my private stash.  It is one I have been saving for something special...and that is this months stocking at Gossamer Dreams.
Combined with the all time favourite of pink gingham, the finished piece is just adorable.

Another sneak peek of one of my other items -
Roses with pink (would you believe that I didn't use to like pink but now love it!)

Hand printed bliss.

Nothing says 'Eden' more to me than handprinted fabrics. I found this Kangaroo Paw print at the fabulous Ink & Spindle stand at Melbourne's first Finders Keepers market last year. This gorgeous fabric is designed and hand printed only a couple of train stops from my house - I can't believe there is such magic being worked so close by!

All hand embroidered with variegated thread, hand drawn, this is the back of what it will become!

Happy New Year!

And welcome to 2011.

Gossamer Dreams intends to be bigger and brighter than ever this year. We've got lots of gorgeous new Guest WAHMs in the firing line. For the January stocking we have some returnees and a brand spanking new Guest. We've waited patiently for her to start sewing her gorgeous wares and I think you'll all be very happy with her stunning creations.

Oh wait ..... I guess you'd like to know what the theme is too?


So what does Eden mean to us? Well you'll have to wait and see, whilst each of us produce their own private Garden of Eden.

Here is a little peek from our newest Guest WAHM - I bet someone can guess who she is?
