Chain reaction

Finally I hung the Suzani I bought two years ago in Amsterdam (in this shop). It has a wonderful, classic palm pattern in light colours. (The picture below doesn't do it justice, as it was taken on a late winter afternoon.) This hand embroidery never ceases to amaze me: The wall hanging has more than 2.00 x 1.80 metres! Imagine the hours of work that went into that...

 
Once a piece like that is up, you always need new pillow covers. It's a rule.

As I didn't want to go shopping for hours, or spend a lot of money, I turned to my pile of Tulu samples. Love Tulu. Elizabeth Hewitt designs beautiful blockprints on natural fibres. All in all a perfect fit. Here's the work in progress...



Aim is to finish the pillows this weekend, clear out the sleeping sofa (which I'm currently always using as interim storage for my craft projects), and make my study/our guest room presentable again. Wish me luck ;)

Just a quick note to tell the general public about a great man who brought my husband back to me after 11 years, his name is Dr. OKO. My husband was snatched from me by another woman when I went to see my sick mother, I came home to meet the house empty my husband was not at home, he wan’t picking call none will he call back. I was left alone with our 4 years old baby, he was gone for 11 years but just a month ago a friend of mine called me to tell about oko and she gave me his contact and I did contacted him and he told me my husband was with another woman. Also, he said he will bring back my husband within a few days, I thought it was a joke but behold my husband came home begging for forgiveness just as OKO promised. Off course I forgave my husband everything became normal even more that it was before. You too can be helped by him if interested through: okotemple@live.com or call/whatsapp: +2348131684022.
