Today we have some Purple...

I love how this Moses basket turned out!
A splash of purple makes this one stand out..

I changed the design of the curtain a bit.
I added the layers of lace at the bed's level.
The request was to make the curtain so 
that it can later be used over the 
babies crib.

This Moses basket has a hood.

This blanket looks antique, it's made of 
super soft cotton.

Winter time in Dubai...
Sun with a temperature of 24 Celsius..

I made a bed cover to match the set..
I didn't have any purple sheets 
so I used my blue covers and pillows.

The pillows are ready made...

Here I used two different kinds of lace
for the main cover.
Then I added four different layers 
of lace to the edges.

Two pillow covers.

Ooh! I so fell in love 
with this new material...
Silk roses and it feels so soft.

I bought one yard and I will make a 
baby pouch from it for a try,
but I'm sure I'll go back for more...
Pillows next!

I hope you have a Wonderful, Happy
and Healthy New Year!

My New Carpet

I love it when my daughters ask me 
'What would you like for Christmas?'

I knew exactly what and where to get it from...
This beautiful carpet was on my mind for a long time
and Global Village was the place! 

The carpet is handmade, cross stitched with wool.
I am so happy with it.
Thank you girls!

Today I finished making these 
chair pad covers for my dining chairs.
I seldom make things for me to keep,
these are staying!

My new carpet is for my living room
but the lighting there is bad, so I 
drag all my items to the bedroom where the 
light is perfect for pictures.

I love my new romantic chair pads..

Happy Holidays!

Today I am joining in with

Sweet Moses Basket

Back to work...
Today I finished this pretty Moses Basket
for a sweet little girl.

I used the softest cotton to line the basket.

Off white with a touch of pink.
This design is great because the pink is 
easily removed to make way for any other colour.

I used my precious SIA flowers on this crown.

So very sweet and the little princess
is already waiting.

Auction Finds

My holiday flew by, I enjoyed visiting my daughter
in England and my parents in Holland.
I usually pair the auction time with my visit.
Here are a few of the items I found.
I fell in love with these sweet Angels.

I  was looking for a rose bowl 
and now I found one...

Aren't these cake plates pretty?
I love the pink flowers on them.

Sigh... just perfect!

I think the words written under the Angels are
Love, Believe and Hope.

I also found these three silhouettes,
they are dated 1811 
Wow! two hundred years old...

They are pen and ink drawings.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

More Baby Beds

One day before I travel... 
I finished my Moses baskets.
This is the bed I made two days ago
and the lady couldn't make up her mind,
beige or pink bows and flowers...

It ended up with beige.

Now a complete different basket,
baby blue...

For this baby basket I used cotton 
for the lining and four layers of lace on the 
These oval shaped panels 
can pull the canopy up from the sides
to play with the design.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

Silk Covered Moses Basket

Today I finished this beige silk Moses basket.
I have to make one more before I travel...
I'll leave on the 18th to England to see my 
youngest daughter who is studying in Colchester 
and stay with her for four days.
Then hop over to Holland to visit my parents 
for two weeks.
I requested lots of rain and cold weather...

These beautiful roses I got from my better half,
we celebrated our 36th year wedding anniversary,
I've got the sweetest husband ever!

On this baby bed I used a very light lace canopy. 
I love the flower detail.

I only used beige and cream colours 
for the basket and canopy.

Here is a closer look of the curtain.

This is still one of my favorite cushions,
I'll keep it a bit longer, just to look at it...

I hope you are having a wonderful week.
