This time, country style

Although I don’t have TV, I am still watching a lot of movies and series on the internet. I am kind of a series freak. I however don’t really like just to sit and watch, I need to do something with my hands. Usually I keep them busy with crochetting or cross stitching. When I do some cross stitch embroidery usually I have then problem what to do with it. A pillow, or some other decoration? Well, this time I had two ribbons with cross stitched flowers on it, so I decided to make simple country style pillows. I like how they turned out, I think they could be a nice decoration in a cottage.

Country style placemats

Another one of things I love. Gentle and romantic floral patterns, pastel colors in country style. I wish I could have a house with huge windows, wooden floors, full of flowers, lots of cushions on the sofa, white kitchen with big massive wooden table in dining room. It is my dream. Who knows, maybe once it will become true. In one of my romantic idea attacks I decided to sew these placemats. I used creamy fabric with roses and light green checked one for the borders. Originally I wanted to use the roses fabric also for the bottom part, but it is too thin and I could see the patterns of the bottom layer through the top one. So in the end I decided to use just plain creamy fabric for the bottom part. It looks exactly how I imagined, now I need just the big wooden table.
