On January 11th 2007 I opened up this little online shop for everything to wear: unique clothing and accessories. Second years flew by and 11 items sold online. Not good as a business, not bad for a hobby either.

My tulle and velvet mini mini collection is still available. (Cocktail ensemble and lingerie to go with it)

I got some great press in the meantime:


Burda WOF German Edition September 2008

I sent out my JJ version to BurdaStyle’s fashion show in Munich, Germany (this will take place in a few days).

I have to admit, I didn’t take this task very seriously, I haven’t sewn everything I had in mind originally and I would like to find more time this year and sew more.

BurdaStyle came up with the open source patterns, and I’m dreaming of a collection in natural linen with crochet work and other little hand made touches based on their patterns. I wish I could make a promise to myself and invest more into this. I’d like to study more about the marketing side and how much to invest, where to start, how to set the price, etc…but I feel like this business theritory would erase the fun out of the craft. So for now I’m dreaming of something, maybe it will become reality one day, maybe I’ll wake up…we’ll see

On the other hand, there is a contest I just make participate to, see if you’d like to be in it:

just more of my Alice in Workingland designs.
I’m having doubts…
Should I keep drawing these or are they horrible?

In the meanwhile I have been working hard on a crochet top. I have finished a crochet hat, started to knit on the Bond a pullover from Fitted Knits book, finished the front yesterday.

Next week I’ll be in the Grand Canyon modeling the new pullover I hope I finish.

I did not forget about sewing, and have so many plans in mind, like jackets and pants that I really need. I was just spending my time discovering Ravelry.

I have joined a local knitting group:
I hope I can make some time and join them Mondays at the cafe.

December my mom and dad are coming to visit all the way from Romania and they will be staying for a month!
I cannot wait to sew something with my mother again 😀
