I’ve been quite absent lately haven’t I? But that’s because I’ve just come back from a trip to sunny Barcelona. We’d never been before and hubby and I spent all our time walking round trying to fit in as much sight seeing as we possibly could.
My absolute favourite place was the Sagrada Familia an, as yet, unfinished Roman Catholic Church which was designed by Gaudi. The building work is ongoing and it’s well worth a visit.
The creativity of the building literally took my breath away, and judging by the expressions on other visitors faces I wasn’t the only one.
I know photos don’t do the building justice but do go and visit the official website here for a glimpse of the incredible architecture.
I did do a little making before I went away, I made a little draw string bag to keep my undies in.
This is a very thrifty make as the white cotton was an old sheet and the blue flowers were from old shirts. As you can imagine it feels really soft.
I even did french seams so there were no raw edges inside.
the channel for the cord was a bit of my son’s old pyjamas (or at least I hope they were his old ones 😉 )
The edges of the flowers are all designed to fray when the bag gets washed – so hopefully it will get a soft shabby chic look to it in time.
It’s good to be home, my feet are very grateful to be allowed time to recover 🙂
Enjoy your week end.
Until next time,
