I pray for peace in the area and hope you"ll do it with me.
I did however finish some things this week. The thermostat of our fridge/freezer died and I had a huge puddle in my kitchen. It was fixed yesterday morning, so that's one thing down the list.
I send out all the packages of the OWOH event!
I am working on some new scrap products. More things down on the list!
Furthermore I had bought fabric at Ikea ages ago for Sarai's new room in the kibbutz youth quarter (she"ll be leaving home next month). It's CHARLOTTA Teckning fabric (shown below with the designer), which Sarai wanted for curtains.
Her new room is kinda retro, black and white with orange and bright green. She designed it all herself. As my new craftroom will be in Yael's old room (Yael will get Sarai's room) most of my stuff is packed and the sewing machine is at my moms temporarily. So I went to my mom two days this week and sewed Sarai's curtains. They have loops on top for a rod. It was my first ever curtain project and I am happy how they turned out! (Photos when the room is ready).
As I bought the fabric I also found a coupon for around $1.70 of another curtain fabric with a pattern Sarai really liked and I thought I can make it into a pillowcase (for her bed-sofa, not for to sleep on)! My first pillow was the Union Jack with the zipper and this was only my second and I wanted it to have 4 buttonholes with 4 vintage black buttons. It's not totally perfect, but I learned a lot and both me and Sarai love it :) It even has an English seam inside :)
Next Friday I need to pick up our new passports at the Dutch embassy. It had to be replaced as the new ones have fingerprints (I still wonder why a Dutch passport in Holland cost 50 euros and a Dutch passport at the embassy cost 62 euros). And I had to pay for FIVE! Anyway, I thought if we have to drive all the way to Tel Aviv AGAIN (another 40 euros for the car) we might as well visit the only Ikea left in Israel :) So I hope I can find some more nice fabrics.
Also Sharon will move to a new flat, larger, with a lovely new kitchen and she could use some new things, so will check at Ikea and Michal will than leave home and get Sharon's old smaller flat. So got a ton of renovations and moving coming soon.
I hope in a month I might have my new craft-room ready and have the sewing machine back home. Lena of NeedleCraftPatterns send me these two gorgeous downloadable patterns and I would love to try them out! Aren't these babyboots adorable? And those linen baskets!
Rest me, to wish you a wonderful weekend. Stay safe!
