Not only do I collect thimbles, I also collect other sewin related stuff and my latest collection is mugs that show of fiberrelated decors. I bought the two Merchant and Mill mugs in Dublin and the other two here in Malmö and when in London I bought a mug tree, I´ve been seeing them through my travels in the UK and Ireland so this collection will be limited to 6 mugs

Beeing a weight watcher you really should not eat sweets or at least limit your consumtion. So nice of Colette that I can indulce both Beignet and Meringue that contains no points...
I´m not sure but I think the front darts on this skirt is placed closer together than on other skirts.
I might as well do one more for summer with the scalloped hem.

SIB stands for Sexy Italian Blouse and I really don´t think that blouse is so sexy but the storyline in Burda was "Dolce Vita" and the fabric is from Italy...so why not? The fabric is from my favourite Swedish fabricstore; Gittes and I just happened to come in there one day as they where unpacking a load of italian mens shirt fabric and I bought 3 pieces and I think I went back for one more later. This fabric matches the skirts fabric so at first I thought I would make a dress from it, but that´s what´s so good about buying fabrics, you can always change your mind later
It´s made right of the pattern with the exeption that I went up one size for the hips.
The tie blouse has really cute sleeves and was sewn in a chiffon in adotty fabric and I so want one just like it...so I might go fabric hunting and YEY we have a new fabric store in town!!
