a sewing mess

its been a week now and im still down with a cold so what better way to spend my time than making a real mess...i decided to start sewing my curtains..."how difficult can it be?" i thought. well it turned out to be very simple but extremely tiring because....wait for it.....i dont have a sewing machine and im doing it by hand.
i sew and i sew and i sew.....and its never enough !

 the fabrics are the ones i bought at Ikea and i love them. bright and happy, just perfect for a spring touch !

the happy hearts are for our bedroom and the one with the green birds for the livingroom.i hope that in a few days the curtains will be ready. i just cant wait  !!!
i also bought a darker+stronger fabric to make me a summer tote bag. i really love it !! on second looks good on the dinning roo chairs too.

home again!

Well...i'm finally back. I spent 6 days with family and friends. 3 enjoying going out, shopping and laughing and 3 locked inside my bedroom with a very bad cold (fever, pain and everything). Can't say it was all bad though.

a drink by the pool
I met my girlfriends after a long time, we went out for coffee and dinner. We had fun shopping for our was an IKEA breakfast-shopping-lunch-some more shopping experience. I bought black and white picture frames to start decorating my walls and fabrics which im going to use for curtains and a summer shopping bag. So sewing will be the next thing to try and im really excited about it!!

I also spent a lot of time with my brother, most of it going through his collection of retro toys and talking about his new findings. I even helped him shammpooing the dolls! I myself want to start a doll collection as soon as possible but decorating the house is my priority now.

After that i just stayed in bed taking pills and sleeping when i could. Breathing turned out to be a big challenge.
But all things come to an end and im back home (still sick) with mrB and the little happy family!!

sunny days

the last few days are full of sun and its really lovely...after a very cold winter with lots of snow and rain spring has finally come!!!! warm popping...makes you smile all the time...
after almost 5 months i can have my morning coffee with the windows open and its very little ones enjoy the sun too...they really look happier sunbathing in the morning and more and longer walks outside

i wish for no more rainy days this year...we had more than enough!!!
now its time to buy some new flowers...we live in a small city and we dont have a yard so the best we can do is fill our small space, a little balcony, with as many as we can....we really want to move to a bigger place but its not going to happen soon im afraid....fingers crossed never know!
