Do you want a tour? {Let's Get Acquainted}

Sunday 7 April 2013

Hello everyone and welcome to Made in Home! I am Nat and today I am your hostess with the mostess for let's get acquainted! Monday Link-up organised by the wonderful Beth. I thought it might be fun to give you a little tour of my house - and try to find the Made in Home projects scattered around as well as my vintage finds.  

Baby MiH hooded towel, his duffel coat, the baubles
 (for a future garland), his vintage concertina hanger and of course a penguin
In Baby MiH's room, les souris grises cushion and the vintage crochet cushion
Our coffee table an old trunk found in the Netherlands, the doily pattern is available for free

The painting was made by our guests at our wedding - hence its wackiness. 
Our bedroom: The Cherry House QAL quilt and
you will also find Winnowing
Found a Nancy Drew vintage book - had to buy following 
the Nancy Drew blog hop.Same crochet doily pattern as before
My drawer - remember the vintage headband, the swirling old gold beanie hat,
the orange sanguine  scarf and my wedding garter
The Olympics cross-stitch is framed and hung
A few MiH porjects here: the doily from this book, the Latte knitted blanket,
the Vintage blanket Cushions,
Jess's cushion, and a vintage Paris map
So what's next? No matter how many projects I have on the go, I know there is still another one I could be making. We need to rethink the entrance and make it more practical; Baby MiH is too big for his Moses basket, we now need to paint the cot (Granddad MiH one) and style it a bit; and bits and pieces here and there... 

And my Le Challenge project... I am getting there! Are you taking part? I have done a post on Le Challenge in 10 questions if you want to take part..  There will be a giveaway!

So there will be more knitting, more crochet, more sewing, and quilting and probably more DIY. Cannot wait!

I hope you enjoyed the tour!

So now it is your turn! What have you been up to and what have you got planned!

  5. Always enjoy a house tour ; ) that coffee table is awesome.

  6. mmm chili con carne! my mom used to make that a lot when I was growing up--haven't had that in years! My family is quite dutch as in they moved to Canada shortly before I was born, so it's really neat seeing a European blog!

  7. Thank you for the tour! You have made some very lovely things :) I might have to make a doily or two now... Thanks for hosting the linky party this week! I will definitely be coming back!

  8. Hello Nat,

    Thank you for hosting the link up.

    I've gone mushy over Baby MiH's coat.

    I've got an old trunk like your coffee table. It's stuffed full of wool and is hidden in a cupboard somewhere...


  9. I've linked up yesterdays post :D

    You have a lovely home! Mine will never be that organised!

  10. Lovely tour! Isn't it wonderful to surround oneself with things we make and also things that have stories that come with them (I love vintage for this reason!). Thanks for sharing all your wonderful goodies.

  11. You have a charming and lovely home! Thanks for hosting! So fun to "meet" you.

  12. Awesome tour. That suitcase is gorgeous - your house is beautiful!

  15. Fantastic tour Nat - it's so cool to see your many projects in your house! You have a lovely handmade home!

  16. I've linked up, but wasn't asked what I'm having for supper! Supper, will actually be Fish and lime curry and not Elizabeth–cannibalism isn't my idea of foodie heaven.

  17. Love, love love your home! Beautiful handmade things! This is a great idea for a post! I especially love the quilt over your bed and the cross stitch on the wall :)

  18. Thank you for hosting. You have a lovely home.
