It was a lovely queensday. We wandered through town, all dressed in orange of course. I didn´t buy that much at the fleamarket, but I´m happy with the nice embroidered pillow I´ve found! It was dirty, I washed it immediately. The bad thing is, it shrunk. So now I´m going to make just a small pillow.. The good thing is, the lightbrown thread in the middle turned out to be white, much nicer than before! I like both sides of the embroidery, and I wonder which side to use. The back looks a little bit more raw and takes of a little of the corny character. I´m going to think this one over.., hopefully I´m going to make a decision, so this piece won´t end up at the fleamarket next year.

But why make a simple pillow from it? In a lunchroom I stumbled across these nice
wooden tree stools. They are from the Dutch company Afgezaagd en Stoffig (something like: Sawn and Dusty). They also make very nice lamps in the same style.

      Dank voor het aanbod, maar wacht daar nog maar even mee. Het zou zo kunnen dat ik er morgen weer andere plannen mee heb. Erg vervelende eigenschap..
