Recycling made....

Had a brilliant idea one day at work...
so I started to collect old table cloths and some crocheted ones too...
Found some lovely pink ones...
and started my creative journey!!!!
And this is the result...
My new cover for the kitchen sofa!!!
and ... I LOVE IT!!!
Turned out just the way I wanted it...
and even Lars liked it.. and it was pink.. huh..
what have happened here... ???
Even son have bought a t-shirt with tiny pink stripes on it...
Oh my goodness .. they have been coloured by pink!!!

Have some pillows to make..
the old ones didn´t match... so I have to make some new ones...
I am working on them....

And in the mailbox I have had some fun mail...
Sheryl from
My Upstairs Sewingroom
sent me this wonderful book by Natalie Bird...
"From the Heart"
and some wonderful pink DMC threads....
Love my friendship gift

Been very touched by the words Sheryl wrote in the book...
There sure is some very generous people around the world....

And more of that in tomorrows post!!!
All I can say...
