It's been very quite here lately, apologies for that. I have once again been away with the husband. This time to Germany to see my family and to celebrate our second wedding anniversary. We got back over a week ago and I had to catch up on work and just general stuff. We have been away a lot this year........
I couldn't really come up with any good blog post ideas so I just took a little break. I thought I'd rather not write a lot of boring crap just for the sake of it. There will be more sewing, outfits and cycling adventures soon. I just need a little longer to come up with things worth blogging about.
One thing, that might be of interest to some of you readers is that I am selling off some crafty books on Ebay. My husband and I will be moving in February (the latest) and we decided to get rid of a lot of stuff we don't need or use. As much as I love books on arts and crafts, I have not done any of the projects and I don't think i will. Most of them are brand new, some are used vintage ones. Here are the listings in case you are interested. I am currently not offering international postage but email/message me and I can change that if you are interested in any particular items.
I will also add some clothing items and other random stuff within the next few days too.

Dressmaking by Design by Charmian Watkins this is for anyone who wants to learn a bit more on pattern cutting. The projects are very 80s though. I guess you could adapt them for a different look. I never got around to doing that.
Alternation: Transform. Embellish. Customize full of projects, especially reconstructions.

I am also working on building up my own business. Is any of you readers self employed or even running their own business in fashion? I could use advice wherever I can. Please get in touch!!!
Getting rid of STUFF is great. I love it!!! Not so long ago I was one of the worst hoarders ever (it's in the family....) but my husband is slowly turning that around. Being a soldier, living in a small space that gets inspected on a regular basis makes you good at being tidy and letting go of clutter.
Are you a hoarder or are you pretty good with keeping on top of what you need and what not?
