Sunday Bookmark

So most of the moving is done, everything is moved out of the old appartment into the new one. Only lots of boxes to unpack and rooms to decorate and tidy up. 

Today's bookmark is therefore something that prettifies every home: button magnets. Such an easy but at the same time ingenious idea from Big Box Detox to use single buttons that I definitely have to try some day soon.

Have fun making your home even prettier!

Still alive...still sewing...

Dear readers,

I know it's been a while since I posted regularly but I will move into a new apartment next week and all my sewing stuff, amongst other things, is already packed. It's actually the 3rd move in 1.5 years since I have been having some bad luck with my choice of apartments... extremely cold old building...choleric land lady...you name it. So keep your fingers crossed for me that this will be my last move for a while.

And please hang in there until my move is done as I promise to post more regularly and with  new content once it's done. So what are my plans for this blog? I intend to post more tutorials on pattern modifications as well as actually show off my sewing projects (I still owe you photos and a tutorial of my blouse that made it into the Burdastyle Sewing Handbook). In addition, I will keep you up-to-date on fashion trends and plan on participating in Me-Made-May this year and create more outfit posts. And of course, you will see more home DIY as I turn my new apartment into my new home.

Fabric trends spring / summer 2013

Also for the upcoming season (spring/summer 2013) at work we visited the Munich Fabric Start that I already told you about here. It's always interesting to see the trends of the new season upfront even though most fabric suppliers are not finished at that time with their collections and the actual trends usually emerge during the season. Nevertheless, I want to give you my impression of the coming and enduring trends.
