It has been too hot to sit in my craftroom in the attic lately.But finally we're having some cooler weather and I have been crafting again.

Normally when we're having a birthday we have plastic banners hanging in our livingroom. But now I wanted some fabric banners. So I have been going to my stash of vintage fabrics and started sewing.Here is the beginning of it.
When I have completed it I 'll place a photo of it.

Here is a close up of an afghan that I'm crocheting for my daughter Astrid.

I'm hoping to have it ready by christmas and as you can see I still have a lot of work to do before it's ready......

I also have made an apron from a pillow that I have found in a thriftshop.
But I forgot to make a photo of it so I will post that another time.

I´ve been thinking for a long time now that I should do a banner just like yours! I think I will start at once :-) Thanks for your inspiration!
