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 ;)
