Packing my suitcase I take with me … a selfmade dress

Fast a week of holiday is over, but I will not forget my Marilyn Monroe moment wearing my new dress (pattern by pattydoo: Marie with sleeves from Chloe) – sadly without picture. When I went up the stairs to the red tower of St. Agatha the wind turned my skirt up. Fortunately we were the only visitors and so only the children had fun, when Mum Continue reading “Packing my suitcase I take with me … a selfmade dress”

Packing my suitcase and taking with me … a dish towel

Yesterday I have reported that we stay in a holiday flat in ancient walls. Lately here had lived the grandmother of the actual owner. On the ground floor there is still her old gas oven, which was her wedding present. This oven is incredibly neat, it does not show its age. It would even operate today but the new gas cylinders Continue reading “Packing my suitcase and taking with me … a dish towel”

Packing my suitcase and taking with me … Mugrugs

Packing my suitcase and taking with me … a beach bag

When the four of us go to the beach then we need a big bag for our picnic blanket, towels, swimsuits, drinks and all the other stuff necessary for a good stay at the beach. Of course I have several patterns for such a bag and maybe some fabric, too. But as it is the time was missing to sew and so I jazzed up our simple, blue, bought bag and took Marianne for a stroll at the beach (design by FruBlomgren). And in doing so, I brought Continue reading “Packing my suitcase and taking with me … a beach bag”

Time giving

Befitting the upcoming time clock change I hung my selfmade clock (design by Individual Pieces) on the wall of my sewing room showing my sewing time sew pretty. I have embroidered the dial already before the summer holidays but it took me some time to find the fitting nail polish with which I painted the sad black hands of the clockwork. My daughter now Continue reading “Time giving”

Packing my suitcase and taking with me … a travel case

Thinking of travel preparations a woman of course thinks first about what chlothes to pack. But my husband always first thinks about travel documents – tickets, passports, assurance cards and of course money and bank cards. So far he collected all these in a big paper binder. But thanks to the simple pattern of pattydoo for a smart travel sheath they are now well-arranged. On the outside Continue reading “Packing my suitcase and taking with me … a travel case”
