Det var en super hyggelig kveld - spesielt morsomt for meg var det at så mange gjenbruks og loppeglade damer hadde møtt opp. Dere var som jeg hadde forestilt meg - kjempekoselige damer alle sammen! Tusen takk til Monas Lykkebo for at hun gadd å virkeliggjøre denne ideen om et treff!
Inspired by all the recycling ideas we have seen in bloggs and in books and magazines lately I am showing you a couple of square idea. Yes – I am a square person – I hope I do not have a square personality! If I have the choice between various patterns I will automatically go for the squares! I wonder if that means anything??? The bed spread is made of old cotton curtains, clothes and various scraps. I do not like the idea of purchasing new material to make a quilt! For me, the whole point of a quilt is to make use of old stuff. I have quilted by hand as my machine is not large enough to handle a double quilt. The table top was shown in an article in the French magazine Cote Ouest. Old wood has been cut into squares and a wooden tapesty covers a table top. A glass top makes in easy to clean. So the next time you are dismantling the walls in your home – make use of the old wood. Wouldn’t this look nice on a terrace by the sea?
Last night we had a gathering in Sandvika just outside Oslo. So many fun and resourceful ladies! We laughed and talked until it was time to close the restaurant. We exchanged ideas good advices related to our interest for decorating, and decided that this was not the last meeting! I truly look forward to the next one and hope it will be soon!
