I try to catch up on my dear friend Liz’ SewingRoom SewAlong project. I probably won’t create all the sewing related items I’ve missed over the last few months, but the plan is to make a thread catcher and a sewing machine cover within the next weeks. I’ll maybe add this month’s challenge – a scissor’s etui to the do-do list as well. The April project is done already. I’ve made this pincushion, using again a sugar bowl that I had found at the flea market last year.
Shortly before our move I had received a wonderful package from my dear Danish friend Dorthe and it’s overdue that I show you these. Sweet Dorthe over at Den Lille Lade had created a gorgeous fabric collage with a lovely rose image for me.
Take a look at all the yummy laces she had used. Absolutely beautiful!
Dorthe had also included this fabulous angel for a safe travel. Isn’t she pretty? I kept her in my purse during our 3-day ride South and the trip went well :-). Now she’s got a place in the studio.
Other sweet gifts were this pretty lavender heart and the wonderful vintages clips.
Thank you again, dear Dorthe!!! You know how much I love your gifts. Everything will be treasured for sure.
I still work on finishing up the studio for the “Where Bloggers Create” party on July 14th. Without that deadline in mind I probably would have put off several things for quite a while, like painting some more pieces of furniture etc. Now I’m happy that they are done or will be finished soon. See you next Saturday then … :-)
Have a lovely weekend!
