Back in the sewing room

But sadly only to type. My visitors have left so I can now reclaim the sewing room, hooray! However, today my apartment is being photographed for a local interiors magazine and when I start sewing I seem to create mess everywhere so I have to wait.

However, it is amazing what a few well placed props, especially fresh flowers, can do and I am learning a lot from the stylist on simple things to improve the look of my flat. The magazine will come out in January but I sneaked a few pictures of my own in the meantime so allow me to indulge in a non-sewing post. Sewing starts tomorrow!

That's exciting! It would seem you have many creative talents, not only sewing.

I am so glad you posted these non-sewing pics. I read interior design blogs, too. Just love seeing beautiful creative spaces. Yours looks really serene- I love it!

Very cool! I hope you'll share the magazine pictures with us too.

How totally cool! Having had the privilege to observe the flat in person, I can say that it deserves the attention of the media!

Can you send the stylist my way. Your place looks great!

Oh, and how did you go about eliminating the gathered front on the Simplicity top?

What a stylish place! I truly couldn't sew in a place as nice as that. I need my mess, at least in small doses:). Do keep us updated on the magazine pictures. It all sounds exciting.

You have a beautiful, harmonius looking home. I envy your taste, as I'm sure others do. It's great to see a little about someone's home, even if they live on the other side of the globe! Thanks for inviting us to take a look.
