Marimekko

Hello - anybody there???


The week before this, was a foggy one - somehow I managed to catch a cold....... and we all know what that means...... no brainfunction, a sore throat, running nose, the head feels like a balloon..... Well, I'm all better now :o)




Let's talk about something more fun......

In June I made this Roman blind in Marimekko fabric, for some friends of mine. I resently got some pictures of it, so I thought I'd show them to you.




I'm very pleased with it, thankfully so are my friends ;-D . This really gave their kitchen that finishing touch...


I always find it challenging to sew the dowel-pockets that runs broadwise- straight... It looks like I managed just fine....... :O)




















I've made these two wedding cards, I was asked to make them for a friend of a friend......













So what else have I been up to???

I have started on the Hundred Acre Woods blanket for my three year old.... here's a sneak peek...

All the drawings are now replaced by appliquéd versions of the residents ....... I hope she likes it, you never know in that age, and they are quite frank about it too...lol... I'll show you the rest when its finshed
;-D
Wish you all a wonderful week!!!!!

  6. Du har jo sydd en kjempefin liftgardin! Jeg har prøvd meg på lignenede kun en gang, og vet godt hvor krevende det kan være å få løpegangene og snorene rett. Men du har gjort en utmerket jobb altså. Spennende prosjekt du også har med det teppet til datteren din. Gleder meg til å se det ferdig. Og så godt å høre at du har blitt frisk igjen.
