WOW---I just love it--and all from recycled things---can I "use" your idea--this week end it was my food and clothes closets that I cleaned out rearranged--next weekend is my vintage linens, a dresser and my quilt dresser--so I will have to think about what I am going to put in the thrift store pile a little harder--hu?????

  37. Great job Stina...I just love the look of that quilt. Keep up the good work...and stay focused--I like that. Think I will adopt that motto also!

  38. That is a fabulous quilt. I am sure going to weed out my tea towels when I get home (from visiting Mother). Some have holes, and now that is a GOOD thing; they can be QUILTS! Karmen

    It turned out great.
    I love the old table cloth, tea towel idea, the colour is so soft, its adorable.

    'Stay focused!' is definitely a good motto. Thats one of mine too.

  43. Hei!
    Ble imponert av din bruk av gamle duker,gardiner og kj.håndklær til nye tepper og lignende!
    Dette har gitt meg TIPS om hva jeg skal gjøre med en hvit duk somhar fått en skjemmende flekk.
    Her kan jeg skjære duken i kvadrater og legge inn kvadrater av et annet faget stoff eller lignende!
    Håper at det er i orden at jeg kopierer tanken din om gjenbruk av gamle ting?
    Ellers syns jeg din blogg er fasinerende å lese!



So nice to hear from you all... makes my day special...:o)

If I dont reply to your email.. you are probably set as a noreply...
so please see that there is a way for me to contact you...
