Gondolas and travel craft

Happy Wednesday!

A few weeks back I showed you some lovely dark blue cotton I bought in Burano, Italy and I was not too sure what to make with it. A few hours browsing Pinterest later, I found this really cool doily pattern that includes gondolas! Considering that Burano is one of the Venitian islands, how perfect is that?


Im pretty excited to make a start on this one, it should turn our lovely. 

During my trip, I also bought a pre marked table centre, all ready to get embroidered, from Prague in Czech Republic. The markings call for very large cross stitches and I hope it turns out good 🙂 the design has roses and leaves, which I think are pretty typical Czech motives, and I’m planning on using 3 different shades of pink and 2-3 different shades of green. 

As always I’ll post more about those two projects as I get some progress done. 

Have you even brought back crafty souvenirs from trips? I’d love to hear about them 🙂

Burano treasures

Hello readers!

You may have noticed that I have been a bit more quiet those past few weeks, maybe I haven’t replied to messages, liked you posts or commented on all the lovely things you post on your blogs. You see, I have been very busy during this time: I finally got to go on honey moon!

I’ve seen some pretty amazing things so far, but I just could not wait to share some of the things I’ve bought in Italy.

We went on a trip to Burano, a tiny island off Venice, which is very famous for its lace work. I think most of it is actually tatting, and after seeing all those beautiful things, I really want to learn how to.

So I bought an owl bookmark, then I fell in love with a little lace fish, and of course, I had to get some Italian crochet cotton, in navy blue. I don’t quite know what I will make with it but hopefully something that will remind me of Venice and Burano.
