Wow, it only took me 8 months to finish it. Not because it is so difficult to do, quite the opposite. I started it when Ronny began developing the basement. Then summer came and we were so busy with everything….basement…fence…garden..enjoying the sun.
Well, today I sorted my
enormous fabric-stash and found this dress again. The only thing that had to be done was to hem it.
I am serious. The hem.
Since I always have to fiddle around with my designs I just had to add the border. I got it from Value Village in a gigantic bag and finally I knew what to do with it. Hmm, great, ignore the thread that is hanging out, it has been removed haha.
I am quite happy with the dress and truly love the fabric.
I can only hope that Birdie still fits in it 🙂

My little sister Clarissa’s totem is the silver fox and when I found this grey fabric with little swirls in it, I knew it was and still is perfect. It was my first attempt at Applique with a sewing machine! I had no idea that maybe choosing a thread that fits the background or the colour of the object would have been better, I chose pink. It didn’t turn out super perfect but I still love that little fox.
Then I gathered pink/red and black fabric from my small stash that I had at that time. My stash has grown since then but back thenI still had to order fabric for a project.
I did not want this to turn into black and pink only so I added a bit of soft teal to it.
Clarissa told me that she puts it on her bed every day and when we went to Germany the last time I could see that it as true 🙂 Magically it also fits exactly onto her bed even though I had not exactly measured the whole quilt when I made it. I am bad that way!
Big hug to my little sis! We miss you and hope to see you soon!

This week’s colour is pink. Unfortunately, nothing is blooming yet in Calgary. Over Easter we had hail, rain, snow and a bit of sunshine. It was weird. So I had to dig up some photos I took last year. Forgive me.
Walk a Mile in her Shoes- a Charity Event in Calgary. Men wear highheels and walk a mile. It is absolutely hillarious to watch.
Flowers in my garden- I cannot wait for summer!
An indoor plant and me playing with focus on my camera 🙂
This is the prettiest „flower“ of all, my little Birdie when she was just a couple of weeks old and would still sleep in Daddies or Mama’s arm. Cute, how her shirt was way too big, isn’t it?
