My dear daughter made me this sweet cushion, for my birthday and it looks wonderful on my old rocking chair.
Thanks to all my lovely friends for the birthday wishes, your kindness and love, you shared. I appreciate each and every one, and made my day very special.
I saw this great idea on my friend Julia's blog the other day you can visit her here.
vintagewithlaces.blogspot.com She has a lovely blog and always has something beautiful to share, so go and visit her and see for yourself.
It was so much fun and this is how mine turned out and I will be doing this again.
Natural Dyeing with avocado skins.
Boil the avocado skins in an old saucepan for about 15 minutes and then add the fabrics, lace broderie anglaise or what ever you want to dye.
Then boil for about 25 minutes.
Isn't the soft pink colour beautiful and a delicate shade. Maybe you might give this a try if you want something pink and the beauty of this is there are no strong chemicals.
I got the pretty CD monogram when I was in France and will make something from it.
How lucky I was, finding my initials, so had to buy this.
Sending out wonderful wishes for a beautiful weekend to you all.
