lampy

Some great comments on the 'craftiquette' post - thanks for that! seems like everyone is fairly unanimous on the subject, which was to be expected.

Having a busy busy week tying off loose ends before we jet set off at the end of the week (!), but have squeezed in a bit of lampshade making. i know i promised to make a photo tutorial about how to make these, but I didn't have time to stop and take photos this time. Plus, we're getting a new camera in Japan which should hopefully take MUCH better shots! So next time, I promise :)


A custom lamp order of matching poppies and raindrops fabric :)


an Auntie Cookie fabric lamp for Shannon to take to the market! Her fabric works really well in this context!! And the black on white print provides great contrast when the lamp is on :)

Have a great time! Not as if you wouldn't without any wellwishing.. :) Japan, I shall see thee too one time ( or more, I hope!) You did a nice job with that lampshade, perhaps that's what I should do with my piece of Aunti Cookie fabric as well. I got it in red though. I'll wait for you tutorial and see if I can make it work for me :)

Japan - how exciting! I'm sure you will be happily immersed in all of the great fabrics and design elements they have.

Of course, the lamps are fantastic, but you already knew that :)

The lampshades are fantastic - it's true that the black and white combination is perfect for this! Have a great trip to Japan!

Great lamps. I'm also interested in where you got the framed coral art in the background!
