sunny, snowy Sunday
I am never really sure what my style is when it comes to clothing so I have started to make a series of collages to give myself some idea of what I like. I have lost 2 kilos (that´s about 4 pounds) in the last few weeks and as a reward to myself I will buy new clothing when I have reached my goal. So I have been looking through mail order catalogues and fashion magazines and cutting out anything that appeals to me. I have almost finished sewing my skirt for "Sew? I knit!" and I will post pictures tomorrow. I really enjoyed it and sewing my own clothes is something I never really considered in the past.
It snowed all day yesterday and I needed something to brighten the day so I made a wreath for the front door. I used some willow branches from our garden (I usually cut some in autumn and keep them in the cellar, soaking them in water for a while makes them easier to bend) aswell as ceramic butterflies, stamped wood and ribbon (thanks again Chrissange!).
This is a lovely book that I received in the mail on Thursday from Claire. It took a while to get here but it was worth waiting for. I will get started on some of these lovely tags today. I have never really been into embroidery but it´s definately growing on me.THANKS CLAIRE!
I´m thrilled that Laini received my bag, if anyone else would like me to make them one, just drop me a line on email@example.com and we can work out a swap or a purchase.
I hope you´re all having a lovely Sunday!
