This Easter Sunday I had a surprising message from Kim from The Material Lady who nominated me for a Liebster Blog Award. Normally, I’m quite sceptical about those awards that spread around like a chain letter… but to receive it … Continue reading
..at last :) Happy Women’s Day, ladies! Today I suddenly realised that I still have to draw a winner of Sew Grateful Giveaway.. With the help of True Random Generator… (the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!) … Continue reading
I knitted this cowl using an easy and fun (and free!) Irish Mesh Cowl pattern from ravelry. The yarn was bought in the charity shop ages ago, it was on a cone, quite fine (possibly intended for machine knitting). I … Continue reading
I missed Sew Grateful Week last year (apart from entering other people giveaways and reading their posts :) This year.. :) Monday the 24th of February is Giveaway Day. Although it’s almost Tuesday now, but technically there is still about … Continue reading
I made this gilet back in autumn. In November we visited Arundel castle – a beautiful medieval castle, about an hour and a half drive from London. I used this opportunity to show off my new gilet, although the day … Continue reading
Just a very short post for those who love Burda Style magazine. Do you want to see a sneaky pick of February issue items? Here we are, I especially like №132. The dress №101 is also nice, simple but elegant: … Continue reading
Good bye 2013! Below is some 12 creations of this year. It was a year of crocheting, knitting, sewing, gardening, cross-stitching, refashioning.. but mostly sewing..
I really don’t have much time to do in-depth reflections here, as I’m supposed to cook New Year’s Eve dinner right now..
I wish you all HAPPY NEW YEAR, may it be jolly creative :)
(Oh, yes and pictures are linked to their original posts if you are interested)
Thanks for looking and see you next year :)

Recently I was lucky to win 2 Lolita Patterns from PatternReview 12 Days of Giving Thanks. I also won a giveaway on Low Beam Studio blog. That reminded me about drawing a winner of my own giveaway. I used online … Continue reading
It’s been 1 year since I started blogging.. I published 27 posts, which is roughly 2 posts per month.. Well, I am a lazy blogger :) A bit of reflections: My favourite self-made item: Fifi Lapin print raincoat. Every time … Continue reading
It’s time for another post.. I have been away from blogosphere for some time, as I was busy completing two big (for me) projects: a sewing one and a knitting one (apart from doing all other things that we call … Continue reading
I made this summer knit dress in the end of august. I wasn’t in love with my first jersey dress, but, surprisingly, I wore it a lot and had lots of compliments :) It’s so comfortable that I decided to … Continue reading
Note from me:
I haven’t been posting anything for a while… Have a few finished projects, but just not in the mood..
I blame moody autumn.. Everything seems so silly and worthless in autumn.. I’m reading Japanese poetry, drinking cheap alcohol, dissolving in crisp autumn air.. escaping from reality in other words..
That is not Japanese, but still wonderful haiku from Leaf and Twig blog.. Have a look – it’s beautiful..
I made this jumper from Sirdar Summer Stripes some time ago, but didn’t have a chance to wear it much.. It’s very boring plain pattern, but I love the pastel colours blending into each other. I’ve chosen the Pina Colada … Continue reading
