Summer is coming !!

hi, just managed to delete the post i just wrote so i have to start again. ;-( oh well. thanks for bearing with me. there are a number of reasons why i have not been to active. among them my pc that is ancient is playing up, i was not so inspired to write and having to use the ipad does not make ame very happy.

so what have i been up to lately? i have been sewing a little, managed to finish a couple of dresses, loads of pillowcases and some robes.

at the beginning of may i went with some friends from work to a craft show in manchester. initially i promised myself no more buying fabric. well no such luck I have seen some great fabric i just could not leave the place without it. and i tried. i am already working on a dress using vogue pattern. it is a dress with lining, but i am trying to make it without it, so still trying to figure it out.

also my friend convinced me to try my hand at knitting again. i first learnt how to knit from my grandma. already made a little top and started another. but since not so happy with it, it ended being undone. will start again, and then i will share. i promise.

So here are a few bits that i did make lately.

I don't really like talking about myself. But, I love sewing and after reading a lot of blogs on the internet about it, I've decided to give it a go as well. I am Romanian born, but live in the UK. I am a bit selfish when it comes to sewing. I tend to make stuff more for myself. Others have to go through a lot of torture in order for me to make something. My mum did it twice. Well I only wanted to make the dresses fit her perfectly. And in the end they looked great.
