while not sewing that much right now i spent some time covering hangers - not really necessary, i know, but nice to look at. i got the idea at posie gets cozy, the actual tutorial is from Tif at Dottie Angel. (because i am not very good at crocheting and have some major issues with reading even the most simple pattern i had to make some small alterations. so if anyone is going to try the tut, too, please let me know if you had to chain 73 stiches instead of the said 65, too, to get 13 shells and not just 12 like my first tries..)
some weeks ago i got me a Charm Pack of Denyse Schmidts Hope Valley and made a little pillow for my "new" 70-ies sewing chair.after waiting very long to buy some fabric of that line i am now a bit hooked i am afraid. especially the greys and the reds are really, really nice.
so this week i got some Hope Valley i swapped with Mari in Norway - who was my secret partner at the Urban Home Goods Swap. she asked for a fabric swap just a day before i sent out her her home goods :-), how very fun!!
this is the other side of the colorwheel pillow i sent her.
and finally here´s what i got from Rita in the Great Potholder Swap 2010, hosted by Malka:
