Indian Summer - Oven Mitts and Knickers

It is late Indian summer here - green grass, blue sea, sunny sky and golden leaves!

I am making some little kitchen aids for the shop, colourful like the trees outside. The peak of the holiday season is coming and I they are almost ready. I hope to finish them tomorrow /or by Friday for sure/. They are oven mitts - the ones that got warm welcome on Etsy. And lingerie too /more on this below/.

Busy Days Here

A busy day is usually an interesting day. A fast one too - it starts and it gets to its end in what seems like a few moments. I have had some of these lately. So I broke a promise. Starting a day at 7am and calling it a day at 1am for a while and no time for blogging. I call it a busy period.

But these were so interesting three weeks! The studio is covered with fabrics and lace /and tidy too!/, the computer - with pictures, and I have not started knitting yet this autumn. We had some beautiful roses and I took the chance and took some pictures of knickers  with them /more on these later this week/. I got my camera full every day, so I am not taking many pictures actually /not mentioning the products shooting/.

Oh, and the studio reorganization is still going on. I transformed some shelving just to find I can't buy more shelves and need to reassemble them again and built it all in the former style. With all the fabrics living on it it is not exactly my idea of a progress or a better state. So it got immediately a "postponed" status and went on sewing lingerie.

See you tomorrow! And I am sure this time as I will write the post right after posting this one. Organization, organization... it does help in busy periods.

Welcome Autumn! End of Blog Vacation!

The Black Sea sunny watres - August, Varna, Bulgaria
Three months off-the-blog have passed. The summer is over and the first cold day is today. The summer pictures, full of sunlight and vibrant colours will make up for the grey day otside.

I took a look at the publishing dates of the summer post here and not only they see a few, but just one or two a month, well, I know - no posts for August at all. So, the "Christmas in July" sale in the shop is still there - last days of early Christmas there. Hurry if you like an Christmas quilt checked on on your "to-do" list in October.

So here I am back on the blog, starting the holiday season in the studio and the blog seasons on the blog.

The studio is in transition to its new organization now and I still have bits of many things waiting for their new places. The cold days and poor light proved to be the perfect moment to disassemble and reassemble the shelves, and the boxes, and the piles, and the lists...  The lastest sewing project took place last week and the next one is tomorrow. Hopefully!

See you tomorrow with more September errands! Happy Tuesday!

Welcome, July! Christmas in July Quilts Sale!

I can't believe how quickly this year is going. It seems January storms were last week... and we have glorious sun again. And dolphins are coming to say hello in the sunny waters again! I show them on Instagram - such happy moments!

One of the best things about July, not mentioning the beach and the flowers, is the Christmas in July idea. Being a gift and gift-wrapping-addict myself, anything mentioning gifts and Christmas feels like magic.

So the shop is celebrating this with a huge sale! Some of the most intricate quilts there are 50% off now to celebrate Christmas in July. See them all in the shop.

All the quilts are made to order. It will take approximately 7-10 business day to get a quilt complete.

A Flower Garden

June is about flowers! The month of the poppies, the larkspurs, the flowers in the feilds and just next to the roads... It is almost gone and I can kind of make up for this with some May pictures of a lovely iris garden, I think.

So here they are - a great collection of irises:

Something Red - Lace and Cotton Lingerie Set

Adding lingerie to the favorite reds


This is what I am doing today. My first set of red lingerie, on my birthday. It's vivid, but not bold. It is strong, but not harsh and I love it. It is really special because I have a thing with reds. I have always had a dress, a coat, a pair of shoes and a bag in red. Well, and a wallet. No, I do not wear them all together, but I love red. Although is not my favorite colour. It just grows with me and I add something red to my life as it goes.

The colour thing

A couple of years ago /or so/ I bought my first red lipstick. It was the soft red, you can't resist loving - pure red with a hint of white, just enough to soften it and make it delicately shining /and I don't mean glitter or gloss - just the colour/.The lipstick has expired. I have replaced it with another /different shade, different make, next generation etc./, but colours have special life of theirs. I have the same colour on my nails now - just like my first red lipstick.
