I´ve always loved sketching out my sewing plans, and this little app makes it possible for me to make croquis much more resembeling my own body. That´s truly helpful…

FO´s: I made some stuff

So, I had a concussion. And anyone who follows Gillian would know how much “fun” that is. For me, though, the good that came out of it was that, in my loooong period of zero screen time and no work, I got to finish a pile of UFO´s, and make some new stuff to boot.…

A handmade wardrobe?

Suddenly there were more work than I anticipated. And hence, less time for sewing. Shoulders aching. No more knitting.

  Serger Love Imagine that. I have a serger again. My serger broke, slowly but steadily during the winter months, and since February I have been without. When it finally did break all together, I feared it was nothing to be done, so I delayed taking it to the shop, because I was afraid of…

Why not try and make a plan and then stick to it?

sewing plan delfinelise

the making of a plan I went through my yarn stash recently. Since I no longer knit much (because of some neck/back issues), I thought it wise to free up some space by letting go of some of my yarn. That felt really good. So this morning I went through my fabric stash. Now, not…

Cocoon jacket Look what I made! On a whim, I decided that my wardrobe was in desperate need of a cocoon cardigan. Actually, from idea to finished project, I think it took less than 24 hours. That must be a new record for me. I love to plan things, and most of the things I´ve…
