publication mollie makes home

chambre à couchermarrakech april 2014el limónmollie makes home publication

Pleasantly surprised with the Mollie Makes Home magazine, when I found 'his side of the bed' and 'moi' between the brightly colored moroccan wool on the cover!

A while ago I was invited for 'tea & a chat' with Mollie makes Home. You can read the interview with me from page 100, a surprising question & answer by Caroline Rowland.

In the same issue there's also the photo of our lemon rug in the Inspiration section (page 124). 'And who says a gorgeous rug has to stay on the floor? Be innovative! Be a rule-breaker.'

When I'm back from my Cool Crochet Workshop in Marrakech, there will be a Mollie Makes Home give-away on my blog.

californian sunset colors

A while ago a lovely lady from California asked me if i could make her a stool, with mainly white cover and some light blue, lavender, grey and teals.
So I picked the colors from my wool cupboard and started the project. Also found a beautiful matching piece of wallpapered scrapwood.
I fell in love with this one...

Meanwhile the stool is standing across the pond, in sunny California.

(those colors remind me of the stunning colors of a Californian sunset)

indian summer outfit

I sewed this 'indian summer dress' up last week, for my upcoming trip to Marrakech.
Between all Snor Festival preparations of the last weeks I started this 'side project', for which I actually did not have time at all, but heck... (i always tend to do side projects when i don't have time for it)

I made the dress of two beautiful cotton scarves, it's nice and cool to wear.
So the dress is already packed in my suitcase for the Cool Crochet Workshop in Marrakech that will start next week!
