So this is the result of searching through my stash of fabrics 'I will certainly use (again) some day'.
I believe these are the simplest pillowcases there are. No buttons, no zips, just a little fold-over at the back. The olive-green one is my favourite.

One of the things that amazes me about Barcelona is the beauty you can find in the most basic elements of the city. I love the pattern in the the bottom left photo. It's the metal floor piece at the top of a train station escalator. People were looking at me with puzzlement when I took pictures but I think whoever created it deserves appreciation.

Anything high up on your list to make?

I had imagined flower girl dresses that are comfortable, twirly and chic (but not too chic, they are kids, after all). In the end they turned out exactly the way I imagined, but how could I have thought that sewing a fully lined top could be done just like that.
I learned a lot making these. And gained even more of an appreciation for handmade clothes - the planning, thought, accuracy, craftsmanship and care that goes into them. Of course, they can't tell yet and spill cacao on them anyway, but I 'see' the hand-sewn seam of the lining when I look at them.
