Some FO skirts and pictures from a journey.

If you are wondering about the recent radio silence from this channel, then let me explain why, using pictures.

I went to a city where the ceilings looked like this: IMG_5013

where doors and walls looked like this:


and where cats could be found laying like this:


A place where the food and drinks were delicious:

and where tea could be had while enjoying a view like this :

Did I mention the tiles? Here, I´ll show you some:

Alas though, the trip ended with this:

But not to worry, the medical care in the country is excellent, having an ancient history to fall back on. But because of this injury, I haven´t been able to sew anything after coming home, luckily for you I have some FO´s to show you, namely this BurdaStyle skirt:

and the skirt from this popular Vogue pattern:

Looking a little something like this: 

and this: 

the sweater is knitted using a Danish design, and has a little cute button detail on the shoulder like this:


Now, can you all guess where I´ve been? I´m hoping to be back with more actual writing once my finger has healed.

Until next time: Have fun, and to all of you Americans: Happy voting!

    Oh, your poor finger! I hope you get well soon. I think you’ve been visiting Morocco. Am I right?

    Your skirts are lovely (the yellow tights are fab!) and I really like your purple knitted jumper.
