Swirls of Chocolate...

Today's project: to make a boudoir stool and use the colours, brown, light blue and lavender/purple.
This is what I came up with, the brown Indian raw silk looks like swirls of chocolate on top of the sky blue cotton material.

The flowers look pink in this picture but are actually light purple and I found fake lavender to make a little bouquet with purple striped ribbon.

Here you can see I used very little sky blue lace, no lace she said!... This is the minimum, I can not go below that....

I was given these three panels of floral material and had to make pillows using them.

My daughter who lives in France with her husband and their two little girls are coming on Wednesday,
I'm so exited and happy to have my daughter and grand-daughters come home, I see them about twice a year and the little ones are growing up so fast.
My son in law will come two weeks later.
The weather in Dubai is now perfect to go to the beach and parks, my granddaughters are real water babies, like their mother..
So after Wednesday all my pictures will be of babies!!!

Today I will be linking up with  Amaze me Monday
                                                   Metamorphosis Monday
                                            and  Making the World Cuter
