My Dearest Friends,
I would like to wish you all a Happy,
Healthy and Peaceful
Please visit me on Instagram
to see my latest work.
After a long time,
I managed to get my hands on a cute pram again.
I covered this sweetie with silk and many layers of pretty lace.
On each side a silk bow and decorations on the...
I love my new pillows!
So shabby and sweet..
These are silk cushions covered with lace.
Linen cushions with silk rosettes,
just like the ones from Rachel..
I learned my lesson and bought the whole roll
of this pretty floral print..
before they sell out.
This one is in white linen
and a bit of blue silk..
I hope you have a wonderful week
Good Morning Ladies,
I would like to share this precious picture with you.
My Moses basket has never looked so comfortable.
Hello dear ladies,
I received these wonderful pictures and would
like to share them with you, with the owners
approval of course..
I am so proud to see our baby dress
on this sweet baby.
Mother's dress is beautiful and elegant too.
Tender moments with her new little sister.
Thank you for sharing your sweet pictures with us.
Details of our latest bed cover,
I used some Austrian lace on the panel.
Today we finished this amazing baby-bed.
It is round and covered with silk and French lace.
I enjoyed making this bed, this is my first
round bed and the tallest..
two and a half meter high!
Some of our last month creations,
Details of a crown to grace the canopy.
Sweet floral baby pouch..
Moses basket with green details.
We can send the Moses baskets overseas,
but not the wrought iron stand, because they
Today I finished a few table covers to match the maternity room set to be finished soon.
I love the way they turned out.
Part of the set is this baby pouch.
I hope you are having a great week.
Today's finished project is this Moses basket from Pottery Barn.
I covered it with layers of lace and cotton.
Here you can see the cotton baby pouch.
It has a removable insert, perfect for laundering.
This is my first time to use my iPhone to post this blog.
With my new business up and running, there are hardly enough hours in a day. I hope this way I can keep blogging and stay in contact with my...
I love this sweet Baby Boy Set
The Moses basket has soft cotton toile details.
I love the crown, so tall and majestic.
I like using these padded ovals,
they keep the curtain up a bit to give it more texture.
I used pure cotton inside the basket
for baby's comfort.
Details of the crown..
This is our new wrought iron baby bed.
I displayed mums bed-cover in it.
I hope you have a great week,
For the past twenty years or so I have been
creating and stitching in my spare bedroom,
corridor and in one home on a closed balcony..
Now, thanks to social media and a very kind lady
who posted all my pictures on Instagram,
I have more orders than I can handle.
My daughter Nadia had a great idea and
suggested we rent a warehouse and expand
Now after a few months of a crazy amount of...
Come and visit some magical rooms in
Celebrate the birth of a new baby boy.
Sample the the splendour of sweets
and admire the floral displays.
This magical room is dedicated to a little princess.
Soft pinks and pastels suits her perfectly.
Ohh! how I love my new Laduree book..
This week I will join in with
I thought to share a few of my favorite pictures.
Valentine day is around the corner,
so I found a few hearts to share with you.
When I have too much free time,
I go really nuts... and create fun cushions like this dress.
This is my favorite Moses basket!
I hope you have a wonderful
Today I would like to show you
my cute perfume bottles
They are so much fun to make!
How about the grey quilt?
I love the colour, it will look so nice with
my lace and pink silk bed-throw.
These days I have many requests to make
All cotton with a little bit of lace..
Next on the list were a few cushions..
and some tissue boxes.
On this cushion I used a vintage doily.
I love the lace on...
I haven't tiptoed away..
I'm still here, very quiet I know..
but work has been going on in a very fast pace..
I can hardly keep up with my orders,
so now we ( my daughter and I) are opening
our very own warehouse/ shop/ workshop..
I am so excited about that!
I have been stitching and crafting for at least
twenty years and I have outgrown my
spare bedroom a long time ago..
I am hoping it will all come...
Today I used the prettiest floral cotton
for the inside of the baby pouch.
I love the result!
So sweet and romantic..
For the blue pouch I used French lace
on the front panel.
I hope your week is going great.
Today I finished covering this
sweet Moses basket with embossed silk material.
I used off white for the colour
and it has three layers of lace.
Here you can see the embossed flowers in the silk.
I am always on the lookout for new materials,
and Dubai has a great choice..
Next on my list was a feeding-cover.
The little flower can be moved to the right or left side.
Just a little reminder on which side the...
Today I added a few more favours to my website
These past few months have been great for my business,
I have a friend who was kind to advertise my work on Instagram
and since then my phone hasn't stopped ringing..
Thanks to the great response, I am now thinking of
moving out of the spare bedroom, where I do all my sewing
and start a small shop.
Maybe in a few months time..
My head is bursting with so...
This week I finished a few consignments,
first a Moses basket covered with crisp linen and
a blue silk double bow.
The second Moses basket is also covered with linen
and has gold silk bows..
I tried out some different ways to cover the
boudoir seat, this time I used lace for the skirt.
The material I used on the seat was bought
in France, I wish I brought back more..
We usually travel to France with...
Dubai is enjoying a few days of Eid Festivities.
It marks the end of Ramadan.
Add to that the blessing of new babies.
These days I did my best to finish all my orders on time.
This wrought iron baby bed I made before and
this model will not be repeated.
I do like to change often and introduce new designs.
I love the curtain on this Moses basket,
the lace is so pretty, sadly it is not available any more..
I like that word.. Piz-zazz
meaning dazzling style and flair..
All nice words to describe these two cute
baby pouches, I love the colour my clients chose.
Soft yellow silk bows and
I also used yellow lace under the cream one.
Can you see it peeking out?
On this pouch I used light green silk for the bows
and matching green lace.
Last Friday we participated in the ARTE market.
It was very quiet, I was told...
On Friday my daughter Nad and me are joining
The Artisans of the Emirates
in their bi-monthly Art & Craft Market
on the 2nd of August
from 5:00 pm until 11:00 pm.
I used to participate in most craft markets
here in the Emirates.
Every week, early morning, loading up the car
with all my frilly tissue-box covers and lavender
sachets.. meeting ladies from different nationalities was
the best experience,...
We were all waiting for news on the Royal Baby..
It's a little boy!
I'll have to find a little princess fo this bed now..
I used silk on the outside of the bumper
and cotton on the inside.
I love the curtain tie-back,
it has three layers of lace and does its job in style..
A royal baby won't have a simple mobile
to gaze at, I think a small chandelier will do..
I found this wonderful cotton Jacquard...
Today I finished a bed-cover with pillows
and a matching baby nest.
The mother-to-be requested mocha and cream,
with some pearls..
I hope I have the colour right..
I stitched each pearl with four strings of thread
onto the baby-pouch,
just to make sure they won't come off.
I hope you have a wonderful week.
Two tiny feet that wave in the air,
Two tiny hands that tug at your hair..
And an adorable little face,
A bundle of joy to love and embrace.
A cute little boy to cuddle and squeeze,
To pamper and play with and bounce on your knees.
Tiny fingers and tiny toes,
Little itty bitty clothes,
Teddy bears and smiles of joy,
Oh! my gosh it's a little boy.
We're back from our trip to Holland.
It was auction time again and because my daughter and I
started an online BROCANTE
store, we need to get
some more one-of-a-kind treasures.
This time I won a bid on two boxes, one with
handmade antique lace and one with vintage linen.
Most of the lace was stained, it took a few days of soaking
and washing to get it back to its original splendor.
I love this one,...
This week I was busy making a bedroom set
to welcome a new baby girl.
These are still my favorite colours, Ivory and rose.
Lace and bows galore..
I love the cameos on the pillows and baby pouch.
I chose the little oval pattern on the cushion to
match the design.
I replaced the flowers on the crown of the baby bed
I used my sample laces on the panel of this sweet gown.
On Saturday my daughter...
This sweet baby bed is covered with silk on the outside
and cotton on the inside.
This bed is a good size for a newborn baby until
the age of at least five months old.
All my canopies can be reused later over a single bed
tied to a bed crown.
The skirt is removable and could be used on the front
of a day bed..
Wow! talk about recycling..
I used cotton for the bedding and the lace
is only on the outside...
I had a call from a lady that sells quilted bedcovers
and she knows the colours I like.
The saleslady told me that she found a few and was keeping them for me.
I was over the moon to find out they were pink!
They are made from 100% cotton even the wadding..
I know these pouches are in the way from
taking a good look at the cover..
just look around them!
Did I mention that the pillowcases are super cute...
How many times during one's pregnancy have they
predicted if it is going to be a baby girl or baby boy..
If the mother is more graceful throughout her pregnancy,
she is having a girl.
If she is clumsy, she is having a boy...
Oh! I like this one..
Do you feel your nose is growing and getting wider?
If so, you might be getting a boy.
If you are craving for salty foods while pregnant
you can count on...
After my holiday, it's back to work again and because
most of my creations were posted by a kind lady
onto 'Instagram' I am fully booked until September...
Most requests are for these baby nests,
so I have to warn you from now
my posts are going to be quite repetitive...
I found this great waterproof liner covered with
which is perfect to keep the baby-nest from stains.
I also received an...
We are back from a refreshing holiday in France.
This time we spend a week in Aquitaine region,
a two hours drive from Toulouse.
We stayed for seven days and it rained for
most of it...
I love the rain!
The house we rented was amazing!
If you need a large house to have four families
The house sits on 17 acres of private land,
with beautiful flowers and fruit trees.
I have a long 'to do list' before traveling
on Friday night..
Yay! we're off to France and this time
destination.. Toulouse. It will be our first time to
this city and this year we are going a bit earlier.
We usually go to the provence area in high summer
and it is too hot for my liking, Dubai is hot enough!
Today I finished this sweet iron baby bed,
I used 'antique white silk' with rose silk bows.
Today I finished making these cute pocket-tissue holders.
I used golden beige silk material with three layers of lace.
I was wondering why they call it baby shower...
In Victorian times they would hide gifts in a parasol,
then when opened it would 'shower' gifts
for the bride-to-be.
I hope it was paper money or jewelry...
These days the mother-to-be also gets showered with gifts.
I just love my new...
It always takes some time to get back to work
after a refreshing holiday.
I love to be creative and make the things that are
brewing in my head.
Today I made this sweet boudoir seat, a bit different
than the ones I made before.
The base and skirt are made of cotton seersucker
and the puff is made of soft tulle.
How about a matching birdcage to make this
a picture perfect...
A doily would be perfect to...
I'm back from a short holiday to Holland.
I just had to be part of the celebrations that was
going on for the new Dutch King and his lovely Queen!
Straight to work... I had to finish these baby favours
for a client, they look so pretty! just add some sweets
and they are ready to go.
Tiny butterflies for that special detail.
Even smaller is this little pram.
Not to forget this little bird-cage..
