I had no time to mention this but MY MOM is here for 3 more weeks, cooking, doing my dishes and laundry, and of course we are also sewing, knitting and crocheting together!
She already helped me out with a jacket and swim suit, from BurdaStyle patterns.
Just before my mom came I have finished a sleeveless top out of crushed velvet following the Danielle pattern.
There might just be an interview with me for BurdaStyle in BusinessWeek magazine, I’m not sure… although I did work for 3 hours with a famous photographer last weekend and am waiting to see where the story goes…
“I love the 90s!” NOOOT! just some of the patterns in these almost antique magazines my mom brought from Romania.
At the time I’ve first received this magazine, I remember looking for those cute sweaters with motifs like blond sirens, fish and lion puppies that would suite an 11 years old.
I think the Vichy pattern fits perfectly into today’s trends of the empire waist style.
My mom is learning how to knit with the Bond machine and started work on the lower body. In the meanwhile I’m waiting impatiently to begin the crochet section.
It is going to be made in a bright lime green Catania cotton yarn.
