patterns for spring or spring patterns

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

Hi everyone!

We had about one week when nothing came down from the sky.

It was so cool! No rain, no snow. We got even some sunshine!

Last couple of days we’ve had minus temperature and

light powder snow now brightens our terrace…very pretty.


I got inspiration to sew again.

First I had to cut and modify patterns, yak, I don’t like that at all.

Finally today I almost finished a tunic,

next one is so much quicker to make.

I haven’t had much time to paint nor to draw but a couple sketchers at least.

sewing break

Friday, June 3rd, 2016


This week has been mainly sewing –


sauna window frames are still waiting for sanding because

I need special liquid to get rid off old varnish…


and I don’t like that kind of work… it can wait…xxx more days… 🙂


I’ve made kind of tank tops or sleeveless t-shirts…four pieces so far (different fabrics).


Here’s what I planned to make of this fabric – not all of them

(one top made already)

I’ve been sewing after toooo long break.

It took for a while to find right rhythm and

‘see’ how to modify patterns.

Here are a few fabrics I’ve been working with.

Spring is here!



As sure as the spring will follow the winter,
prosperity and economic growth will follow recession.
