When we went to Lapland in northern Finland last Christmas I had hoped to get some Marimekko fabric. It turned out to be as costly as it was back home so I gave it a pass. When we got back to Ireland, however, my SIL, Niamh, pulled out this bright green Ananas fabric and asked if I wanted it! Turns out it was a bad run or something and she had gotten it for 3 Euros a yard! My eyes almost bugged out of my head as I turned it to the side and showed her the Marimekko label.
She presented me with a 21 foot bolt prior to leaving Dublin. It's currently draped over a chair waiting to be made into something wonderful, which will be curtains for Junior's room. Pretty lucky fellow, huh?Here it is in bright pink. I don't think he would have appreciated it quite so much in this fuchsia colorway which I posted last year. Fuchsia curtains in his room would have led to war, for sure!
