I still have a hard time getting used to Servus and Grüß Gott, which is ‘hello’ here in Bavaria. Even for me as a German, this is pretty strange.
Soo, where have I been? (What are my excuses??)
Well, as you know (or might not know), I’ve moved from London to Germany this summer and it took a while to find a new city and perfect place to stay in. I’ve been in Berlin before (and loved it) but work send us down south this time and we’ve settled for no less than Munich, Bavaria. It’s super different from Londontown but we’re getting used to it (which is much easier than it was getting used to London, tbh).
These little guys will be my new helpers when I can’t use pins, e.g. for leather or delicate fabrics. Found at Tiger in Cambridge. During our very short trip to Cambridge, I also bought these super cute wooden buttons at the market.
Speaking of buttons, I spend my saturday evening sorting vintage buttons! I got two very large boxes of buttons from my grandma and a friend of hers. These included a lot of very cool vintage buttons, metallic, leather, mother of pearl and also a whole lot of 1960’s/1970’s plastic buttons. Woot, woot!
Yes, I’m still alive. And yes, I’m still busy and need to figure out my new work schedule, sewing and blogging balance. To prove to you that I’m still working hard on my 27 Dresses Challenge, I even took some pics of my Work In Progress *spoiler alert*!
But first of all I wanted to share some of the stuff I admired (and bought) at the Crafty Fox Market in Brixton last Sunday. Daniela from Ela Sews And Doesn’t Sleep invited me to come with her, which was super sweet and if she hadn’t asked me I wouldn’t have known about the Crafty Fox Market in the first place. The location was absolutely wonderful, but I forgot to take pictures.
