Our house

You now probably ask why I'm posting a picture of our house, right? Well, firstly so you all know where I live :-), but more important: we are getting an extension build! Yippee! It's been in the planning for over a year and now work has finally started. It is going to be a 2-storey extension, two bedrooms upstairs, a utility room downstairs and the most important room of all: my fabric and sewing room! No more sewing on the kitchen table, I will have a separate room where I can just shut the door behind me. Great!
And to keep you all informed about the building process, I will post some photos every now and then. Fingers crossed the frosty and snowy weather will stay away for a long time!

It's been two weeks already since my last post, I just don't know where the time goes.... Does anyone feel the same? The schools are off AGAIN for the October holidays, which means a slightly different routine to our day just now and not much time for sewing :-(
But I still managed to finish these diaries. I made some last year and they were a great hit with my customers, as they make lovely Christmas presents...

Up until now when going to craft shows I've always been using an ordinary bum bag for the change. Ok, it was leather one, black, but still pretty boring. But that is going to change: I've made sort of an apron, well not the ususal type of apron with ties, but one a bit asymetrical and with poppers. The pattern  MAYTE  from Farbenmix was perfect for the project, I just added a pocket with a zip for the money and a small pocket for pens, scissors, etc. and ready it was: my halfway fashionable, very useful new money-apron-over the trouses-wrap skirt-thingy!
