    Hi Liliv! I was going to ask you the same as Zsuzsa. I also like your dress a lot! I tried to comment it, but it wouldn’t work.. I have noticed that it takes a while before projects are coming up after posting, but this is strange. Anyway, your dress is awesome, so you have to give it a new try! Cheers my friend!

    Hi Liliv , Yesterday I saw your latest project, commented on it that didn’t go, now I don’t even see your grey dress with the faux leather detail. What happened to it ? It does look fab on you and like the extra embroidery stitching as well.

      I’m very glad you liked it. Í’ve tried many times to post it but it doesn’t appear in my studio or in the member’s projects list. I don’t know what’s happening to the site.

    Hi Lil,

    Thinking of you and hoping you are well. I finally started back to sewing a week ago and it was fun. I will be working on a wool cape for my mom next … I think.

    Hi Lili. You are so amazing with the speed of your wonderful projects!!!! Is the school year finished now? I’ve been working on that designer jacket, wow, it’s taking a lot of work to figure the little things all out, and to get the fit right. Going to take a break from it, make curtains, and a couple more tops to go cruzing again. The doctor’s have an idea what is wrong; so now to decide which therapy will be best. Hopefully my stress will disappear now, and I can loose that unwanted weight! Meanwhile, I am enjoying being able to sew. Just need to figure out how to sew faster. :-) The weather has finally turned sunny, and it makes it so nice to get out and walk. Have a wonderful day, Rita.

      We have exams at the school these days so I have plenty of spare time, this is why I sew a lot and I also make simple projects that are very quick to make:-) I am so glad you are able to sew and how nice you are going cruzing again:-) Çan’t wait to see your new sewing projects. I send you all my love and many sweet kisses:-)

      Really good liliv thank-you. I am about to leave for a holiday in the UK, France and Sweden. I have been sewing like mad to have some nice travel clothes to wear. It is finally cooling down for inter in Australia so I will have to sew some nice winter dresses when I return in late June. I hope you have a great summer and enjoy sewing lots of new summer clothes. As usual, my Burda magazines are slow to arrive but I have looked at the reviews and the May issue looks fabulous. I think I know which dress you will sew and I know you will beautiful in it. Bye for now xxx

I cannot see it on project page nor in my studio, I already deleted it once and uploaded it again but still it seems that project is not appearing anywhere? It’s driving me crazy, I don’t know is it problem with my computer or the site.

      Thank you for your nice comment! I don’t know why it took me so long to photograph this coat, but I’m glad to hear that photos do it justice :)
      Also, I do hope you will get your sewing mojo back soon, I miss your projects!

    Hello my dear! Haven’t been to this site for a couple of weeks – alas I’ve lost my sewing mojo too! Actually I’ve joined a fittness club and am on a diet, so decided to put the sewing machine away until I lose some pounds and can start sewing a smaller size. Hope you are happy and well! Spring must be right around the corner!

    Hi Liliv. Wishing you a wonderful day! Missing your projects, but as soon as your sewing inspiration returns, we’ll be able to see your lovely clothes again. When I loose my inspiration, I crochet for a bit. That is enough to bring back ideas, because crocheting takes to long for me to produce a finished project!!!

    My hardest decisions are trying what to make out of what fabric!!! I am currently making some simple tops; lazy projects, but fun. I saw a designer denim jacket online that I would like to make; it has taken me a lot of scouting around etc to find the things I need for it. It will take a long time to make, so I hope I like it in the end. If I don’t, I’m sure my daughter will ‘permanently’ borrow it. :-)

    Take care and HUGS, Rita

    Hi, Liliv, I was afraid to be tactless but then thought that your are so cheerful and friendly and your comments to your projects have humorous note and we miss them as well as your projects. So wanted to ask about your sewing break. Then I saw the schnui’s qestion and read your answer so feel well now:-) Then I saw the number of your projects and decided that this number is quite inspiring in itself so I should work hard to get you:-)))

    Hi Liliv. I have been thinking of you lately and I see that you have no sewing inspiration at the moment. I think it is quite normal and I am sure once it comes back you will be busy making your beautiful clothes once again. Maybe winter makes you feel uninspired??? Sewing for summer is so much more fun. And a Greek summer has to be the best!! I have been away a lot lately so I have not sewn much but I will be back into it again soon. My millinery course starts again next week and that will get me very motivated to sew, especially if I need an outfit to go with a hat!! I also cleaned up my sewing room and sorted my huge stash of fabric and I realized I really need to sew up a lot of this fabric. My daughter who is 30 has decided she might like me to sew for her once again and I will start making her clothes for her work which will be fun. She needs corporate clothes and that is a lot different to what I need and it will also be challenging for me. I will make her a couple of suits and jackets always challenge me. I am lucky to have a lovely friend who is a professional dressmaker and she generously shares her sewing skills if I am stuck on something. I will try and use youtube tutorials as well. Anyway Liliv, I am sure we will all see projects from you again. I hope you are well and happy. Take care.

      Hi my dear schnui!! So nice to hear from you! It’s true that I have no inspiration and no motivation to sew:( Thanks God my closet is already full of clothes lol. You know I loved very much your pretty hats, they were all very inspiring!! It will be great for you to sew some smart and elegant clothes for your girl and you are really very lucky to have an sewing expert friend! As for me I live in a rainy village where there is no occassion to wear pretty clothes:( Anyway it is sure that sometime I will sew something to post here. Happy sewing and happy crafting in general my dear friend! Hugs and kisses!!
