I’m not a very tidy person, but organising is one of my favourite things. This morning I helped my boyfriend tackle his expanding collection of spices & herbs. (He filled, I wrote labels  – the best possible arrangement). A few jars, labels and a pen was all we needed to go from messy, half-open bags to a lovely row of filled jars. Unfortunately they’re still stuck in a cupboard for now. Once the kitchen shelf is installed, they will be out for everyone to see.



I haven’t been sewing for my Summer Essentials Challenge yet, because I have been in Paris for the past week. What I did do is fabric shopping (I went for the blue-yellow plaid); book shopping (I’m finally going to tackle Ulysses); visiting everything that needs to be visited while wearing hand-made clothes.

The dress in the bottom two pictures is what I made for the Sew Weekly “Embellish” challenge. All the posed pictures turned out rather silly, so I’m afraid this is all I have to offer for now.

Fabric: 2,5 m Joel Dewberry Chestnuts
Notions: Piping, invisible zipper, lace for the hem.
Pattern: Self-drafted
Cost: €5,- because the fabric was a gift.
Wear again: As you can already tell: YES!
