It arrived and also I was behind the sewing machine.






There is a special story about this package that arrived on my doorstep today. As you may know my birthday is in February. Well I am with the crazyexchange group and that organized a birthdayclub, but the person that organized it dissapeared and so Jacqueline stepped to make sure everyone would have a partner again. Well my first partner dissapeared, my second partner dissapeared too, from my third partner her package disspeared and than Jacqueline decided to make it herself and well that is this one. Isn't it beautifull. Also Bianca stepped in and she arranged the presents that had to go with it and I got a giftcertificate from the Handwerkboetiek. It is maybe 9 months late, but I couldn't be happier.
Today was stormy and snowy here and so I decided to spend a lot of time behind my
sewing machine. I made this jacket (it is for inside, can't think of the english name at the moment). It is from the Knip XL and it was great to make. I learned some new thing while making it and also had some dumb mistakes, but I am happy with the result as you can see on the pic. Next to make our some pants and jeans. Hope to show some more tomorrow.
