I finally finished weaving, washing and sewing pillow cases and a couch spread ( if that’s what it’s called?) for the customer. I think they came out beautifully, although the photos are very bad. Sorry for that. 🙂
I didn’t have the right pillows so the pillow cases look a bit saggy, but at least I have photos as a memory. I so often forget to photograph my work and when it sells it’s all gone.
I almost wish my customer won’t like it, so that I could keep these beauties for my self. You can see they go perfectly with my couch. 🙂
Then another customer wanted a table cloth, also off white, so that was done too.
We had another two sunny days over the weekend, which is almost a miracle lately, so we went to a lovely park here in Belgrade and enjoyed walking and photographing.
There was a very old house in the middle of the park, charming and sad at the same time.
We were even able to look inside, and this wall caught my attention. Someone lived in this house, and now it’s all empty.
I wonder who was looking through this window years ago.
A photo of my guys 🙂
I finished another altered book. Sometimes I start working with a certain plan, and then it’s like the piece that I’m working on has a plan of it’s own. I wanted to make something dark, more black and grey, but it turned out silver and lacy. I have no idea how that happened.
And another fabric journal. It’s called “The fish”, and I guess my wish to go to the seaside is showing through my work. This journal is very thick, about 3 inches. I added my handmade leather beads to the closure and am very tempted to keep this one for my self. (Well, that’s nothing new, right? LOL!)
Handmade paper inside, of course.
The same thing happened with this journal, as with the altered book. I started with something else in mind, but then the lace that I’ve cut looked like fish, and the crocheted chain when sewn onto the cover looked like waves to me, then I added the beads and sequins….
Well, if it wants to be what it wants to be, I’m ok with that. 🙂
Have a great time everyone!
