Nice juxtaposing of granny blanket with granny fabric in first pic!
If I can source some cool lamp bases, maybe I can get you to make up some retro stylin shades......ooh lets do it!

Michelle said...

Ooh! So lovely and colourful. And so you! (which is kind of obvious as it's your fabric!)

Vireya said...

Wow, Cam, that looks great!

Finally we've seen the light! And a beautiful one it is too. Love it!

You've inspired me to try something like this. Oh and finally make a skirt for myself!

Thank you!

You know I've never thought until now about how ironic it is that you don't crochet!

The lamp is gorgeous and the ridiculously undersized lamp base made me giggle.

Love the evening glow shot.

Your photography today reminded me of Monet's Haystacks! A bit faster than painting them though. Lovely work Cam!

Jennie said...

Looks fantastic. I have some Yardage Design fabric and Opp Shopped bases that I am yet to put together. Worried about getting a nice roll at the top and bottom - was it easy?

Jodie said...

Your lounge looks like the most 'awesomest' place to be with all your craft pieces.

I haven't seen this lampshade kit before - was it easy?
