thankyou for your well wishes last week, finally I am feeling so much better!! Its so nice to have a bit of energy back and be able to do... things! two weeks pretty much on the sofa was not great~! My mind was still active although my body didnt want to co-operate! and I had to do a few crafty projects to stop myself going insane! There is only so much day time tv one can stand!
I started making all sorts of little bags out of burlap, sprayed them silver and edged them... with linen and some Treasures fabric..
I love them with flowers but they could have so many uses...
Then I made a little stars and stripes cushion. It looks nice and faded and soft. Actually its nicer than the pictures show.. happy independence day to all my friends in the US!
The background is pinker in reality. All the different fabrics have been dyed someway using rit dye...
Did a lot of dyeing this week too. I had this tablecloth/runner and napkin set for a while. Its original colour was a sort of buttery beige... I used a mix of petal pink and denim blue (the tiniest amount).
I really love the final colour. I had no idea how it would end up! but thats part of the fun.
Naughty Maisy jumped up onto the table!! a big no no!
Some lavender bags ~ also made with RA treasures fabric!
Another awesome tablecloth; below... a thrift store find; such beautiful embroidery and appliques
And finally!! I made another union jack throw..I thought I might give this one away!!! (i dont really need two the same! - although I was a lot more careful when making this throw!)
Its made with cotton.. and measures 45 x 70 inches The floral fabric (except for the grey and red) are also from the RA treasures range.
