My new Liberty Tunic

Long time since my last post, but Life has been busy
This time of the year, with friends, holidays, work, sometimes it just gets like this
The course has re started and we are now learning and making trousers
Apart from that haven’t done much re: sewing, but one lovely Lady has done one lovely tunic for me.
And Liberty too.


Liberty Tunic

I just Love it

And my favourite ….

I do love to work with scraps, it gives me such a buzz, to transform, something that some would probably throw away, but I see the potential, and I create
So I did. And again it never let’s me down
I think it’s quite a photogenic bag

Hello….

Well, what can I say, apologise probably it would be a good start
So long without news, so many things happening, yet so little time to come and say hello in the blog
Well, I have to say with Facebook and Instagram, they don’t help, do they? But they are fantastic….
The holiday seems a distant memory, Easter has come and gone, and the year just seems to be flying.
Since October 2013, I decided to loose a few kilos. Probably one of my best decisions, actually this last year I have to say that in the whole, it has been, I would say the best year of my Life.
Lots of good things have happened, some not so good, but then this is Life
So keeping the weight off, has proved to be ok, thought it would be much harder, started to eat much healthier, cutting a lot of the sugars, note no gyms, all I do is walking and bike rides, but it is impressive, how much better one feels, started on holiday, with those long walks in the beach, not getting tired, that gave me such a boost, can’t even describe.
I still have days, that are disasters ie some weekends, but it’s ok, have to compensate during the week. Never thought that I could get like this, eating so many seeds, vegetables, and controlling myself in the sweet department.
Yes the shop you may ask? Waiting for a good day to take photographs, have a few bits to start but just need to focus on the photography now
That will be happening very soon. Need to put my skates on.
Been getting a lot of good comments, about my work, which is nice, and probably not wanting to be so perfect with my sewing would be a great idea.
Craftwise, have been doing stuff for the shop, testing new materials, and just getting ideas.
Just feel that I want to make the most of ‘this’ moment, because with so much happening, and so many good things, I just need to relax and absorb this peace that I feel at the moment.
I will be keeping you posted, much more often than I have, I miss writing here.
This weekend I’ll be making a bag, for a Special young Lady, I love doing things for the people I really like.
Have asked her for one pocket of an old pair of trousers, to make it personal, and just going to do with scraps (my favourite), gives me such a buzz, and have lots. And let’s hope after being told about the measurements, that I can come up with something pretty good.

I will show you hopefully by Sunday.
Just be a bit patient with me, I’m here, just a bit too busy at the moment, but soon all will be back to normal, well if I knew what normal was Winking smile
Have a lovely evening

Easy Sunday …

This time of the year the visits to the Garden Centre are a must
I love it …….. my hay fever not so much, but I don’t mind the suffering after

Still here ….

Well … what can I say it’s has been so long…

The holiday was just, and once again so relaxing, I just love that place, gives me that peace that feeling of total inner peace that I so much love.

So fully recharged ……. I’m now back to reality

Now all I need is that kick, to transform, my dreams into reality

I will be opening my shop very soon that is going to happen very soon

The dressmaking is going slow, obviously missed two important classes while I was away, but I‘ll catch up, also want to do some things for me, and unfortunately time doesn’t stretch, as much as I would like

So while I’m thinking of all the things that I have to do, I seem to be taking Life, in a different pace, a much slower one, appreciating what surrounds me, the people that are in my Life, just enjoying and realizing how lucky I really am.

Enjoying every single minute, because Life is too short (a small remark here, for those that don’t know. That Malaysian flight that has disappeared, really made me realize, even more, my previous sentence, I was flying with Air Malaysia, on the same date, at the same time, to Kuala Lumpur, as that plane that disappeared makes you think… or it made me think, how lucky I am. And I feel so so sorry for the people and their families on that flight, just so so sad)

Meanwhile in this beautiful country, and Spring has to be one of my favourites seasons, everything is just so colourful and pretty and I just love it, I leave you today with two pictures that I’ve taken recently.

Have a great weekend everybody x

My first Sewing Project

Finally I have finished
I have to admit, it’s not to my taste , but it will be
It has been a great learning curve, I suppose it’s all about practice, which I need a lot
This piece will be transformed, needs some experienced and talented hands
Not mine just yet.
Put it down to practice
But here it is, next time you see it, it surely will look different

My New Dress

Well since I was young Denim has been my favourite fabric.
For the last few years, Liberty Fabric is my passion
So, why not mix both of my favourite fabrics.
I love this dress, I truly do.
One day I hope to be as half as good as, the Lovely Lady that made this one for me.
Till then, she made my dream come true
I would pose with the dress but the whiteness of my body would just be too much for you to cope Smile
I will take a picture in my Paradise, yes two weeks and I’ll be jetting off to Thailand
Can’t wait, meanwhile, here is the dress sans model Smile
Beautiful!!!
