Table center WIP, I’m almost there!

Happy Wednesday! 

The table center is (still) not finished but it’s in good shape, I’ve done more than half of the light green now, so should only take a couple more days and I might have a finish on Friday at last! 

Have a great end of the week

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 🙂
