Lãs + Fazendas :: Wool + Tartan

Chegou a altura do ano em que apetece começar a combinar camisolas de lã com fazendas escocesas. Quero fazer alguns macaquinhos para o Rodrigo e estive a fazer alguns ensaios preliminares para tentar perceber o que é que fica bem com o quê. Agora há que escolher o molde e começar a coser! (as camisolas e casacos que hoje mostro foram tricotados pela minha mãe, pela minha sogra e por mim; as fazendas foram todas aproveitadas de saias)

It is the time of year for starting to match wool jumpers and tartans. I want to make some rompers for Rodrigo and spent some time finding out what goes with what. Now I just have to pick a pattern and start sewing! (the jumpers and cardigans on show were hand-knitted by my mother, by my mother-in-law and by me; the tartans have come from old skirts and kilts)

  1. Que maravilha Constança, que maravilhoso é ver as roupinhas feitas com tanto amor, vi o casaquinho acabado que tricotaste, LINDO!

  2. Rodrigo será o menino mais elegante de toda Inglaterra!

  3. Vão ficar lindooos!!!!


  4. Vai sair dessas mãos, uns conjuntinhos maravilhosos!


  5. São todas adoráveis! Vai ficar um verdadeiro escocês!

  6. Gostava tanto de saber fazer Constança...para já fico-me pelas golas, cachecois e carapins:) Mas adoro os teus trabalhos, são lindos!

  7. Provavelmente não haja menino mais elegante na face da terra! Vai ficar tudo uma lindeza! Bjinho

  8. Lovely colours, but if they're wool, what about washing? I don't mind hand washing the odd cardigan, (especially as they're taken off at mealtimes!) but trousers/rompers/dungarees get covered in mud, nappy explosions, leaves, puddles etc!

  9. Hahaha! I wash EVERYTHING in the washing machine, cashmere included. The trick is to pay attention to the settings and use appropriate detergents.

  10. If you are adding a stand-alone sink, you can choose from:copper sinkPedestal basins, Wall mounted sinks, Corner mounted sinks,Console sinks

    These solutions are ideal for smaller spaces, though they can be equally complementary in medium and larger bathrooms. As stand-alone options, these bathroom sinks do not typically offer muchlarge stainless steel sink by way of storage, but they can free up space for cabinets when room is available.

    If you are adding a sink to a vanity, you may choose from: sink bowlsVessel sinks, Undermount sinks, Drop-in sinks
    These options can be used with vanities or, in many cases, installed directly into existing countertops.

    Vessel sinks may also come in a variety of stand-alone pedestal and wall-mounted designs, making that particular style more versatile than other sink options.In additionstainless farmhouse sinkto the style of sink you choose, you will need to select its material, color, fixtures, and features. These details help add the finishing touches that draw the room together and make your space feel like home.

    Acrylic bathroom sinks offer many advantages over glass and commercial stainless steel sinkcertain ceramics. Acrylic is highly impact resistant, making it ideal for homes with smaller children.It is also significantly lighter than glass, making it perfect for single-person DIY projects.
