Lampshade Recreated.



For a long time now

I have been looking at the beige,

tasselled lampshade

that is on the beautiful mahogany stand in our bedroom

…and thinking…

"I’d really love to get that recovered".

Well the urge came over me a few weeks ago, and after sorting through my linen and cotton stash,

this is what came out.

I really enjoyed the process, and I do like the look of it. 

Now the lamp awaits rewiring..(shouldn’t be more than a few more years).


Lampshade Reinvented.

This lamp belonged to my parents and was with me as I grew up…

It holds a special place in my heart of course.

Today I have posted off my November block for the Simply Solids Fallow Group Bee…

having trouble loading the photo…

  1. You are amazing! Great job on the lampshade. Such a good idea to keep something going through the generations, I have a lampshade that my mother embroidered which I must do something with one day…..
