It was a hectic week. After we got back from our Easter break in Singapore, it was more unpacking in a frenzy & more spring cleaning to get the house ready for some guests. Here's a glimpse of our new home, here in Dubai. Behind these 3 metre high curtains, is the garden with a pool, something which we never had before & which is really, really useful now with the present temperatures of 40s C / 100s F .
A couple of last minute cushions made with my favourite fabrics.
Whipped up a special dress for our special girl.
Thank you all, who sent her bloggy birthday wishes in the last post - you made her very happy!
Had a little pool party to celebrate Annika turning 11.
The pool was a real scary, yukky, mess the first time we saw it.
That's why this pic is smaller so you won't get too put off.
And the house used to be very empty & clean. This was my spacious (to me!) & empty studio.
It was meant to be a family room with wooden sliding doors leading into it, from the kitchen (which I absolutely love!). I have placed my laptop to the left corner of this room so that when I type, I can still see the pool if my kids are in there.
The studio is fast filling up with stuff. Here is some (yes, some!) of my fabric.
Organised by colours & also by themes.
I try to be neat but I think these multiply at night !!!
In front of me is a curtain suspension rod, with various projects all patiently waiting to be finished...
Among this mess, I sewed this wristlet pouch for a good friend. Hope you like it, Linda !
