The stonecarving has been a bit on the back burner. First it was too hot, then too wet, it was always something. The drive just wasn't there. The needlework OTH went smoothly. I finished a couple of cussions with cross-stitches and patchword (in purple - yeay!) I made a dress and a skirt for the granddaughter, two tops for myself, and finished another patchwork project that was waiting to be finished for some time. So, all in all I'm quite satisfied.
My youngest son's latest girlfriend - they're together now for over a year, so maybe she's the right one - was very inerested in my patchwork and asked if I would be interested in making her some throw pillows in Morrocan colours. It seems an interesting project so today I went to Leuven with two friends to go fabric hunting.
One of my friends wanted new curtains for the kitchen, and I needed feabric for the Moroccan cushions and also fabric for a winter sweater. I bougth the fabric for the bodice as a coupon. I didn't buy it when I first came across it because it was really expensive fabric, and I didn't wan't to spend that much money on it. But now they sold it as a coupon for €5 so I grabbed it - alas there was not enoug fabric for a long sleeve. So we had to go fabric hunting for something fitting. Although it was raining a bit and it was very windy we had a very good time. I did find fabric for my sleeves, but not for the Moroccon cushions. And my friend found fabric for her kitchen curtains
We had lunch at an Italian place and ate some very delicious scampi.
I'll post some pics later on, because I'm rather tired right know and my bed feels very lonely whitout me :-)
sleep well everybody everywhere ...
