Pink Lace Bed Cover

Pink is still my favorite colour, it looks so sweet 
with soft green and yellow.

This week I enjoyed making pillows
and tissue box covers in different 
textures and shapes.

Vanilla-cream, silk roses..

An over-sized pillow, I love this ABC fabric.
I have a small piece left and can't find any more...

To make this little cushion, I didn't need 
a sewing machine and all my spare wading
trims disappeared in it... 

The shop is always asking for more tissue box covers,
so I made plenty!

Boudoir seats are everyone's favourite.. 

I love the fabric on the seat, it has all the 
shades of pink and green.

Velvet roses are the best!

How sweet is this little mirror with 
white wooden shutters.

I had to decorate it because the wooden panels 
on the inside of the doors weren't very pretty.

I added wading and fabric on carton, 
then glued it to the door.
Now the problem is that the shutters 
won't shut...

Now I have to find an other way to cover 
the panels.

I had another project pending..
to cover a lampshade.
This new lace material is so handy,
I cut around the flowers and glued it to 
the lampshade.

What a great invention is the glue gun!
I remember hand stitching lace onto 
wicker baskets... I still have the needle mark
on my finger from pushing it through the basket,
25 years later..

I hope you have an inspirational
and wonderful week.

A Splash of Colour...

Today I am having fun with Picasa..
and showing off my two new cushions.

I have this beautiful style book for 
interior decorating.
I would love to use all these colours in my home. 

A splash of spring freshness
to cheer you up.

My cushions fit right in...

                                                 The clash of wallpaper and curtains
are so sweet.

How about this wonderful mirror!

All my background pictures 
are from this amazing book.

I hope you will have a romantic Valentine.

Sweet Toile Cushion

Today I made this sweet cushion with a 
toile panel, framed with lace.

The shop where I bring my items to had some
discontinued material samples, just enough 
to make a small cushion.

Here I covered some baskets to keep 
little wrapped towels in.

I used a tiny strip of Velcro to keep 
the wrap into place.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

Lacey Grey Bed Throw

This week I've been busy with this bed throw.
I used soft velvet and many layers of lace.

Velvet ribbons and satin ribbons..

Sweet Valentine....

I used three different base lace and to connect
them I hid the seams with gathered lace.

I want to make a nice pink one next.
I'm having fun!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
