Happiness is…

First of all: Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my birthday! They all made me smile when I read them. 🙂 I am happy. I am beyond happy.  Thrilled! And excited! Is it because Me-Made-June is drawing closer? Although that will be a lot of fun, that is not the main…

The missing jacket. You may or may not know, that while I was traveling last autumn in Greece, I lost my precious corduroy jacket. The jacket was special to me because it´s one of the first items I ever made. Before I got the sewing machine I now have, I actually used an old mechanical Singer. The…

This video is from Astrid Lindgren´s book/tv-series about Emil. This song is about how summer sometimes needs a little help, it really is a spring/summer anthem here:-). So, over at the MMMar´11 Flickr pool, there have been some lovely spring creations, and I got inspired, and wanted to make something appropriate for warmer weather too. As I…

Burda 127- 07-2010

Can you believe it? I have finally finished a Hepburn/Hepburn- garment! I finished the last couple of stitches on my Katharene Hepburn inspired pants today, and managed to take some half-decent pics.

Saturday night shopping

So, it´s Saturday night and I decided not to go to a party, as I have a good deal of stuff to do this weekend.  To reward myself of being such a responsible gal, I did some vintage pattern bidding (and winning) at Tradera.com in stead. I did pretty good, I think – here´s what…
