Black Friday Pattern Shopping!!

Hello Everybody!!!

Thanksgiving is not an European Festivity, but we start taking some benefits from it too!

Black fridy, tipical day after thanksgiving where in USA, everything is on sale, is starting to take roots also here in Europe !

I didn’t found any fabric shop that is actually doing reductions in Rome… but on-line there are plenty of shops that do! and so… Pattern Shopping!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

I tried limiting my self… so I bought only 2 Dear&DOE patterns:

La robe Belladone that I’ve seen so many times realised by many of you


and la Robe Bleuet that have bottonholes and a fantastic Bow on the back!


They both are perfect for my 2016 Sewing Objectives in learning how to do create something beautiful!

I also Bought something from Sewaholic! ( they had free shipping and 20 percent off!)

ALMA Blouse


Cambie Dress



Cordova Jacket








I’m so happy and excited! ๐Ÿ˜€ ( also beacuse this means that i can buy Fabric for them!)

And you? have you bought some patterns during Blackfriday?

Let me know!




Moving…the Stash!

Hello Everybody!!!

Sorry for not being active on the blog for so long.

In this year a lot happened! I got a Master Degree in Space Politics, I got engaged and Married :D, We bought our apartment, and renovated it, and also Moved in it!

I can assure this has been a very challenging year for me! sadly i didn’t have the possibility to sew as much as I would have liked. With the preparation of the wedding, the house, working and studying in the same time….

I will make a recap of all of this year i swear! ๐Ÿ˜€

in the meantime, I have one hell of a problem! We are moving out of our Mini rented flat, into out beautiful and brand new home.

we have now an additional room, that for now we will use as studio and sewing space! ๐Ÿ˜€

the fact is that now I have to plan what I want it to be! I need help because I have no idea on how organizing everything!

61bb5-maureencracknellfabrishstashrainbow I have a problem with the stash… I start to have a nice “collection” but the place where to arrange it, is still under construction, we are planning a built-in cabinetย and it will be ready on July!

Do you have any useful suggestion? Some tips and lesson learnt?

Let me know ๐Ÿ˜€


it’s good to be back!
