    I only know the theory that purple is the colour of sexual frustration. Combining this with your friend’s theory… mmh.

    Hello :-) Thanks for your comments on my peacock skirt! its not so difficult, take a pattern for a pencil skirt and draw a line where you want the pockets. Cut the pattern across this line then use the cut off piece to draft a pocket as deep as you want. sew it all together and it should all line up. hope that helps a bit!!

    Guten Abend ; ) How do you like Germany and teaching? I had a quick look at your blog and saw that you’ve found Sally ! You are so lucky! Could you ask her if she has any relatives hiding at a flea market in my area? And I like your projects, especially the blue polka dot fabric!

    Hey! I am sorry I didn’t answer. I have been on a very very spontaneous trip to Scotland. Have you already been to Cologne? If not, I’ll send you some suggestions on what you could do/see. If yes: What did you do and did you like the City?

    I am not sure where exactly I want to go. Definitely to the UK. I hope I can start thinking about it soon (there are some things that need to work out before). zickzack

    Thanks for the speedy response, your right, im sure it will be more straightforward when i sit down to do it, usually is with patterns, they look more complicated then they really are. I haven’t made a proper clutch before but want to do one for a friends bday, so if its half decent i’ll put it up – we’ll see!

      I’m moving to Dortmund, I’m really excited :D and I see that you live in Cologne! I’m staying there for a weekend just before I head to Dortmund, excited for that too haha.

      Ooh what a coincidence, I was admiring your Azalea adaptation earlier today :D

      I guess you are studying there?
      I wish I could spend a year abroad immediately but I think I’ll have to wait for at least one year : /
      If you need any advice where to go/what to see in Cologne, let me know.

      And thank you for your comment! : )
      I didn’t use bonig but that’s on my to do list (which is too long). I was a little scared, too, but since I got the fabrc cheap on ebay – yes,mum was pleased, haha – I tried. Just go for it!
