Goobye London! & Walthamstow meet-up next week!

JL SEWING_015Helloooo my lovelies!

I’ve got exciting news, although they’re not “new” as I’ve known for a long time now. After a couple of years in Londontown me and the Mr are finally moving back to Germany!

I’ve been waiting for this to happen for a while and now that there’s less than a month left I’ve realised how much I will miss London and the incredibly busy sewing community. I will miss fabric shopping loads (as far as I now there’s nothing like Goldhawk Road or Walthamstow where I’m moving to) and, of course, all the fun sewing events happening across town. Not that there isn’t anything like that in good old Germany, but I’m sulking a bit and will have to get used to the German sewing community which I have ignored for most of the time so far (sorry German folks!).

Blog Anniversary & A Giveaway [CLOSED]

2nd blog anniversary

Woah! My blog turns two today! Has it really only been two years?

It feels like it is such a long time ago that I sat on my bed with a cup of coffee, laptop on my knees, setting up this blog. Much has changed in these two years and the blog has become quite a big part of my life. It has fuelled my sewing fever ever since I blogged about my first make. The first year had its ups and downs and I even thought about quitting at times, because uni (and later my job) were keeping me so busy.

The Blog Hop!

I was nominated by the lovely Lara of Dreaming of Avonlea to keep the blog hop tour going. She a very talented seamstress and I adore her style! If you haven’t done so yet, please hop over and check out her blog!

Nobody really seems to know where and when the blog hop started. If you have any idea – please share! The only thing that is known is when taking part in the blog hop, you answer four questions before nominating two other bloggers to keep the blog hop alive. And this is exactly what I’ll do! So here we go.

New pattern, new collaboration, new sewing equipment!
