Every time we take a walk on our beach here, I think about my dear friend Dorthe over at Den Lille Lade. When the weather is gorgeous like today, we can see a tiny bit of Denmark and then Dorthe seems to be just a few miles away. If I would be a fish in a good physical shape, I could swim right over to her house on the Danish island of Bornholm. Well, I’m not a fish and we don’t want to get into my fitness level here, LOL, but that means a trip to Dorthe would involve a couple of hours drive by car and a 3 1/2 hour ferry ride. We haven’t managed to meet each other yet but maybe one day we will.
As Dorthe loves the beach very much, I thought I would make something with a sea theme for her birthday. I created a collage on the back of a canvas, using a lovely picture of two ladies that Dawn over at The Feathered Nest had provided a while ago.
Some weeks ago, when I had showed a pincushion I had made, Dorthe said that she likes the fabric I had used. Therefore I decided to sew a lavender pillow from the same fabric. I added a French label because the beach theme wouldn’t have worked too well with the rose print.
That was it for today. I’ll be back next week with some tags I’ve made and a lovely package I have received. I wish you a wonderful rest of the week and a happy weekend!
