Happy 60th, Marimekko!

Marimekko, my favourite Finnish textile design company, turns 60 this year!

To celebrate, they've organised a fun little competition for their fans. Why Not Together encourages fans to send in photos of things that they've made with Marimekko fabric, or even just an idea.

I could have easily submitted an image of an older Marimekko piece that I've made (they are sooo many) but I wanted it to be special so I made a new one from scratch. With the Lumimarja print.

#142 of The Empress Dowager's New Jewels - A Stack of Dusky Bronze Plums. Happy Birthday, Marimekko!

*A big "Thank You" to Phoebe for sending me the competition link!

You're very welcome! And super quick!

Mine is still on the "to-do" list. I've used up all my marimekko remnant stash so I need to restock!

Glad to know that you think they're awesome!
