Rain, rain go away

After five or six days of rain, rain and more rain, the sun timidly made a brief appearance yesterday afternoon and I ventured to visit one of my best buddies, Marie.   I told her about my new adventure in blogland and she made a quick perusal of my blog.
Marie keeps me sane and makes me laugh.  I laughed all the way home one day when, while at her house I asked her for some pins.  She´s not a sewing enthusiast and after rummaging through drawers, opening tins, and peering into boxes and containers, she produced a total of four pins, one blunt, two rusty and one bent.  I´m going to buy her some pins and make her a pin keep one day.

Here are some photos of a tissue holder house that I made Marie on her request a couple of years ago.  The petition wasn´t so easy because the item was for her brown and beige bathroom and she only wanted those colours.

I added a lot of silver beads and sequins because I liked the contrast with the browns. Here are a few close ups.

  Decorated window boxes 

Apart from her image peering from behind the curtains of one window, I think she liked the end result.

I´m making a table runner and some ornaments so I found these Christmas fabrics and cut out a few  hearts for the ornaments.

Then I embroidered a few tiny designs and the next step will be to mix and match.

Which I hope to show in my next post.
  Thank you for visiting.
