#FabricShoppingOnTour Project | February 2018 Update

Hurray, we all survived January! I feel like I should make myself a slogan t-shirt – seeing that I’m taking part in RTW fast, and I can’t buy myself one – that should say just that. Not sure about you, but my January has been absolutely mental. It started in full swing, with a million projects on the go, and it finished like a damp squib, without having finished hardly any. That’s why I decided February will have to be #FinishItFebruary! I have a bunch of unfinished projects from January and a bunch further commitments I need to complete, but apart from that, I do want to focus on my moderate, yet still super annoying, pile of UFOs (Unfinished Objects) and stuff to be mended or tweaked.

But before we get to all that, the first post of the month is dedicated to the #FabricShoppingOnTour project updates.

A mini guide to fabric shopping in Copenhagen

Fabric shopping in Copenhagen |A mini guide

Don’t know about you, but I have a little ritual of visiting at least one fabric shop when I’m on holiday abroad and buying even just one little remnant. Though usually it’s actually much much more, woe betide my luggage allowance!

I might have mentioned that all my Romanian family now live in Copenhagen (don’t ask, it’s a long story), so it’s not exactly a holiday destination anymore. I usually see the airport, the suburb where my sister lives, and then the airport again. Would you believe that in over 20 visits, I have not been to any fabric shops?!? However, a few weeks ago I got a treat: my mum and auntie took me fabric shopping, as a belated birthday present. So I got to see the inside of the local fabric stores, took back a nice little haul and now I am going to share my impressions with you in this mini guide.

Things I’ve learnt in March

Things I've learned _march (1).jpg

Hi everyone, how’ve you been?

As my little title picture might suggest, there is some sort of spring feeling, at least from an astronomical perspective, if not meteorologically just yet… Here’s hoping, though, especially now that we’ve changed to British summer time!

On the other hand, March has passed so quickly, and sadly, very little sewing has taken place in my atelier… So this post might end up being a bit more of a travel log than a sewing related round-up, but hope you’ll still find something to enjoy…

So here are some of the the highlights of this month.
