As I´m typing this there is a small wonderful bundle of joy snoring away next to me.

2016

2016, a whole new year and even though I don´t believe in resolutions, I do have one.

Better done than perfect! I´ve been struggling with wanting to do things perfectly my entire life and if I couldn´t do them perfectly, I just didn´t do them or I put them off for so long that there was no way to do them even half decently anymore.

This was particularly a problem with blogging. I had so much stuff to tell and share, so many ideas but I wanted them all to be perfect and that took so much time and energy that it just never got done.

So for this year, I do not promise you perfect pictures, I do not promise witty well written texts and reviews but I will promise to at least share what I have been doing. Yes, they might be crappy indoor pictures on a mannequin but hey, baby 2 is due any day now, you all understand 🙂

Sometimes life gets you.

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a long time but always hesitated because this is supposed to be a sewing blog. But it’s my blog and in the end I decide what gets published. I consider you all to be my friends, I’ve never related to anyone as much as to my fellow sewcialists and I’ve never felt less judged by a community. So I at last feel comfortable sharing what’s going on in my life. It all started after the baby was born about 14 months ago (time flies). Because we were still renovating the house I … Continue reading Sometimes life gets you.

I’m blue!

I’m lying in bed right now feeling very much under the weather and in one of my awake moments I posted an Instagram pic of my signature style. (Day 8 of Sewvember) I found the pictures in my Instagram feed and on my blog and came to a revelation about what I like to wear! Apparently it’s coloured/floral scarfs, tan boots, chambray and lots of blue! I’m an autumn type so I would never consciously pick navy as my favourite but apparently unconsciously I do! Who knew! Are there any colours you wear over and over again? Now I’ll just … Continue reading I’m blue!

Blurry pictures and selfie overload!

Today I discovered a gorgeous spot far away from prying eyes. Sadly all my outfit pictures turned out this way. Upside, I get to go back and play around with my camera a bit more tomorrow! Husband agreed to look after the baby while I’m away (like he would ever say no to that) so I could enjoy my alone time. Fingers crossed the weather is as beautiful tomorrow as it was today! I’ve been working on building up confidence in front of the camera and on taking better pictures. So far I’ve started liking it, which up until a few … Continue reading Blurry pictures and selfie overload!

One year ago

One year ago today I married the best husband I could ever wish for. Before I met him, I had spends years looking for the right guy. I wanted love to be like movie love. Happily ever after with my soulmate. I wanted to get married and have kids when I was 16. It has always been my dream. But since I only seemed to fall for guys who needed fixing that just didn’t happen. For years I kept thinking it would change and I was too romantic to realise movie love is nothing like real life love. I couldn’t … Continue reading One year ago

Writing blog hop

I got nominated for this blog hop by the sweet Sarah of Notches and Notions. She does have the idea that I sew all the time even with a baby… Rest assured, I don’t. I plan my sewing all the time but most of the time my head is so full of ideas I don’t know where to start and I just don’t sew… Have to remedy that someday 🙂 Back to what this blog hop is about! Why do I write? I started writing because I wanted a means to share stuff about my newest hobby. I didn’t know … Continue reading Writing blog hop

RTW won’t kill me

Last week Summer turned into Autumn. That’s about two months sooner than last year. So naturally I wasn’t ready. After complaining about my wardrobe all Summer I finally decided to clean out my closet. I put away every single piece of clothing that doesn’t fit me anymore so it would be easier to see what I was left to work with. The stats: 1 sweater 12 cardigans 1 faux lambskin vest 2 blazers 3 blouses 1 shirt 2 shirt tunics 6 dresses 1 pair of corduroy trousers 1 pair of corduroy leggings 1 pair of printed leggings 2 bodysuits with … Continue reading RTW won’t kill me

My #Augusttribute

The sewcialist theme for this month is August Tribute (am I the only one who thinks of the Hunger Games when hearing the word Tribute?) So let me tell you about my inspiration! Although you wouldn’t say so based on the stuff I sew, there is one sewcialist I have the sewing hots for (is that even a thing?) Can you guess who? I’ll give you 4 clues… 1. She sews a lot of pretty dresses! 2. She obviously likes slouchy boots. 3. She owns SO.MANY cardigans. 4. We speak the same language! Do you know who it is? That’s … Continue reading My #Augusttribute
