and this is a great, great, great pillow-case my sister gave me: thanks so much!! I hung it in my hall above one door, looks very nice when you enter the flat :-) one day i will get an matching frame then it´ll look even better..
oh, and the machine-embroidered words say something like "where swallows nest there´s bliss".
first there is this wonderful red-striped light canvas. i sewed on a taffeta-ribbon on the front and lined it with some cherry cotton-fabric. so it´s kind of strict on the outside and simply sweet on the inside :-)
the second new fabric is this coated-cotton oilcloth, my favourite kind because the pouches are really long-lasting and will look great for a long time.
and btw: in this post you can actually click on the pics to enlarge them - i will never get the system behind this clickable/non-clickable business at blogger.. if anybody knows and can tell me why this changes and usually is in non-clickable-mode: please tell me, i would love to know and understand that!
