July Center Block Is Ready:-))

Dear Girls,

I am happy I had finished the center block, the block of July!


The mobile pictures with flash don't do justice with the true colours at all (grrr....), in real all the colours are so fresh and breathing, but we are traveling for a holiday and I chose not to wait another week with updating my journey and risk some whip scars on my back (you know it is still the season of bikinis and beach wear, how would that look:-)))  Maybe I will update this post later with new pics.

I really enjoyed making this center piece. I covered the fabric of the vase with an antique hand-made lace to make it more like me (I am in love with all kinds of ribbons, silks, laces of antique needleworks:-)))




I was watching seasons of Aussie Ladette to Lady on youtube, this was the background "theme" this time:-)))

I wish you a wonderful August with lots of holiday time!:-)

Hugs,

Maja
