The title of this post says it all. I’ve attached the trim to the front of my jacket, been busy with the pair of trousers I showed the pocket detail of, but nothing finished yet. While I had no UFO’s left in fall, I’ve got 4 now: jacket, trousers, blouse and a lingerie set. Time to do something about it.
To my defence (as if I need an excuse) there was little sewing time in the past week because of a nice 5-days away with my family to Barcelona! A wonderful city we absolutely fell in love with. Such a nice athmosphere, so many beautiful buildings all around, friendly and green parks. We had been warned extensively before we left for pickpocketing (oh, are you going to Barcelona, be careful, you loose your belongings before you know it). As in any city with a lot of people you have to be careful with your belongings, but I never felt unsafe, not even in a crowded market place. I’ve been to areas in other cities that felt worse.
No fabric shopping this time or anything sewing related. We walked a lot, saw a lot of Gaudi works and visited the Picasso and Miro museum. And still so much we didn’t see. The most impressive to me was the way the light came from above in the Sagrada Familia. I’ve tried to capture it in a picture (in the center) but it doesn’t do justice to the real thing. It was exceptionally beautiful.
The only sewing related thing I did was buying Patrones. To my surprise some stalls even sold back issues. So I bought 3 issues. Now I have to finish something and then think about starting something new. Inspiration enough, as there are also the last Knip Mode magazines to choose from, and some patterns I recently ordered. Time to get sewing so that my next post can be sewing related again.
Have a nice weekend all!
