Apart from showing you two fabrics at the end, this is a non sewing post. My inner battery has reloaded, it’s been a lovely holiday, even if the weather wasn’t always cooperative. Also no inclination for blogging (apart from the one post in the first week), though I intended to, but normal life was far away, which is a good thing in my opinion.
We went to the south of France, due to family circumstances shorter than we planned. These pictures are from a walk we did there.
On to Italy, where our children joined us for a couple of days. They were all about making non-standard photos. So here’s my family. Some of you might remember pictures of my daughter in a jacket I made for her when she was 14. She’s almost 22 now and nearly finished her studies. My son is 19 and doing a traineeship with a radio station for his studies. I’m quite proud of them.
A picture of mr Sigrid too, and a proof of me wearing the dress I made ;).
The view from the Torre del Mangia in Siena (400 steps up).
On the way back we were in Germany and there is where I bought two remnant pieces of fabric. I’ve hardly been looking for fabrics as I’ve so much that still has to be sewn, but one can’t resist a good bargain, can you?
Above a lycra which will be used in lingerie, below a cotton/silk blend (Vogue is printed on the side), just enough for a summer top. The fabric was very much “me”.
Till next time, with some proper sewing stories.
