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!
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?
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 🙂
