Garments and gardening...

Dear Friends! I hope that the month of may is starting with good enery for all of us... In this week that passed; I have been busy with getting my little boutique in a spring feeling environment , taking out all the old things with care as they go into hibernation now and filling it with new things and a lot of flowers to get the right Spring and summer feeling... 
 
All the seeds that we planted at the beginning of this year are also ready for a new Spring home ( pots) as they have grown into really lovely plants .
 
 
The next step will be to move them to our greenhouse... I hope we get a lot in this years harvest... 
 
 
Tomatoes , chilipeppers and strawberries are some of the things we hope to enjoy this summer... Nothing tastes better than freshly homegrown fruits and greens , like candy but healthy..
Between all the work that our home and my shop demands I have also  , as always, taken my precious time with my knittings and shifting between four different projects, and one is almost ready...Yayyy!!!
 
This week It was time to launch the Abigail shirt.
 
A Shirt with the sweetest fabric I could imagine... The lovely flowers over the soft cotton fabric with stripes in blue is a joy for the eye. I worked with a lot of details . Some in red as the one on the picture  . Amazingly, by putting in red details , like this zig zag stripes in red,  you highlight all the red flowers in the fabric...
 
In this one I added some green and you got another totally different look in this shirt. All the leaves highlight with the the zig zag stripes in green...
And finally in blue...
 
I am very happy with the result and now they decorate my window display....Next week I am preparing for the launch of this years tuniques. Long lovely blouses that you can use as a dress or over a pair of trousers...Stay tuned here or in my Instagram account , @andrealabbedesign. Facebook Andrea Labbé Design. Please go ahead and follow the pages if you enjoy them...Grateful!!!
 
Finally some pictures of this weeks sweet customers and friends of the boutique in my designs and creations...
 
Now time to continue some work in the greenhouse and then I am looking forward for some lazy hours in the sun...
 
Happy sunday Dear friends and thank you for following my work !
