Our Creative Space...


Mum purchased these doilies about 15-17 years ago in Amsterdam, together with many more vintage doilies. We haven't used any of them yet. But these blue ones have been waiting to be used for 10 years for my infamous table cloth.


I purchased the embroidery thread according to these doilies, so that everything would match nicely. And now finally the end is in sight, the tablecloth and doilies will be united and hopefully live happily ever after :) Hopefully next week, if not too much things come in between, you will see the finished result, after we have made it round and figured out how to fit the doilies on the border.


This picture is for those who think that sewing is not a sport. Here you see me finishing a tote, in a weird position.


But all is well, when it ends well. And this tote ended lovely, as you can see here.
