Everything but the kitchen sink....

Today I finished some more cushions, a bit of pink,
green and a lot of lace was the request.

I covered the main green checkered material of the cushion completely..
First I put linen with the letters and stitched pink lace and a velvet ribbon through
lace on top of that.
Behind the big crochet lace I put pink satin ribbon and gathered 
cotton lace on one side and two layers of lace on the outside.. and finished it of 
with ribbon through lace.
so I put everything on that pillow but the kitchen sink...

I made three cushions and one tissue box.

This is the second time to make this cushion,
but this one is made with cotton and is a bit bigger.

I found this cute romantic dress on sale,  there is no way I'll ever fit in it..
I just loved the colour and all the stitching on it.
I could just hang it somewhere in my bedroom or make a few pillows out of it.

While I was clicking away, I would like to show you 
my vintage photo frame, the details are amazing.

Some new lace I bought today in the souq.
The one on the left is the ribbon through lace,
the other one is all cotton, like crochet lace.

Did I mention I bought lots of it..

Here with a ribbon through it.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

Today I am joining in with White Wednesday

  1. I can always count on you to make the pretties. Beautiful pillows with so much detail.

  2. Dearest Angela,

    Indeed, everything but the kitchen sink... There are so many different fabrics and laces used on each item. What a job! You found yourself some beautiful lace in the souq, enough length to serve you well. That cute romantic dress with all the embroidery and crocheted entre-deux is indeed darling! You will find a use for it no doubt!

    Lots of love,


  3. Oh yes!! You can't go wrong with lots of lace.

  4. Beautiful sweet things to see today! I love that new cushion. So beautiful!

  5. Angela,

    What absolutely gorgeous pillows! You are so talented. I love sewing but have never been really skilled at it . Maybe I should take a class.
    I am curious about your living in Dubai. My next door neighbor recently toured Dubai as he was on a work assignment with the FAA. He came back with many interesting stories. Maybe you have some previous posts about living there.

    Do you have a button...I will look.

    All the best,
