Martin and Wille left to go to Torekov in Skåne (southern tip of Sweden and where my MIL lives) yesterday morning which meant some time again for me, home alone, to get stuff done.
I'm back at work since last week but took the opportunity to sew a lot this weekend. I've been wanting to make some new pillows and a new cover for the bench cushion in the hallway and I did all that.
The pillows turned out the way I wanted but I'm not sure about the bench cushion. I've gotten so used the the green polka dot there so now that I tried on the new one it looked really odd. Will see about that one.
I have a thing for heather grey sweat materials. Martin can tell you all about it… I love the color of grey sweats and I always have a pile of grey melange t-shirts and sweaters which I wear all the time (way too often if you ask the husband). For fall (it kind of feels like fall here already) I decided I wanted to try some grey at home too. Will see what the rest of the family thinks when they get home.
The cable knit top pillow is made from a v-neck sweater which I didn't like (love the grey but not the v), the one underneath is made from a New York Sweater from Old Navy that I felt too kid-like in to wear and which Wille wouldn't wear (it's from the mens dept) beause it had long sleeves. That one's going in Wille's room. I couldn't resist the doggy print although the background color is kind of weird. The two bottom ones are of plain grey melange /heather grey sweat material.
