I really love traveling and exploring new places and try to do at least one big trip a year. This year I'm going to Copenhagen for a week at the beginning of May. Last year I was researching going to Scandinavia but the timing didn't work out for me. I was also struggling with wanting to see everything but not wanting to be gone for a long time. So a few weeks ago when I saw that plane tickets were very reasonably priced to go to Copenhagen I decided that I'd go for a week. I'm going to stay in the city the whole time and do a bunch of day trips to explore some other cities too.Read More
I'm generally a very selfish sewist but when the holidays come around, I'm in the mood for giving. But still I have to admit it's always much easier to think of gifts for myself than gifts for others. So, if you're looking for a gift for your best sewing buddy or looking to build your own holiday wish list, I've created today's Holiday Gift Guide for Sewists. These gifts are affordable, stylish and also useful. Read on for all the details.Read More
After my move a month ago, I got out of the habit of doing any sewing. My brain and my to-do list were so full of house things that I had no room to even consider sewing garments. So it makes sense that my first sewing project in the new house was a home decor project (posted here). Now that the sewing machine is plugged in and things are mostly put away in the sewing room, I'm finally starting to think about what I want to sew next.
For some reason I was really stumped. I usually have a long running list of projects I want to make but this time the inspiration well had run dry. It was time for a moodboard. The weather has gotten much cooler (I moved closer to the ocean and it's consistently 10 degrees cooler in my new neighborhood). So, I'm ready to bundle up in lots and lots of layers. Today I have a few of my RTW inspiration items but I'm definitely already thinking about how to DIY this. Stay tuned for more plans on my Winter Wardrobe. :)
