A great day!

Today is turning out to be a really great day! When I looked out the window this morning huge flakes of snow were falling - the snow is so pretty. Everything is white (well everything that isn't the street... the street snow is diiiirty.) Then I went to Budaörs  (a town just outside of Budapest) and had an English class. I played with trains with my student's two year old son for about an hour while she was cooking lunch. It had been a very, very long time since I last played with trains. The nice thing about playing with kids is seeing how excited they get about small things like the trains crashing into each other. Even just the trains going into a tunnel caused a lot of excitement!

Then I went and got SEVEN new bobbins.  Writing this I am realising I am just like Petike, hehe. Such a small thing making me so happy. Then I went to the cheap fabric store and.... they had this pink and red plaid fabric!! Exactly perfect for this contest! Now I don't have to try and match two separate fabrics, or pink fabric with red trim or anything :)

And now I'm listening to Crystal Castles which always makes me happy and the best thing of all - I have almost a whole day 'til I have to work next! Lots of time for making stuff!

Here is the pink top I talked about in the last post:

It's corduroy and so far just basted together. I don't know if I should make it a lot shorter with a curved hem, or leave it the length it is now. Any ideas?

I was going to add boning to the seams but then I think of my boned dresses and how they hang in my wardrobe, neglected. I like boning in theory. I even have a couple of metres of it lying around. But then, when I wear something that's boned I just feel so restricted. Maybe it wouldn't be such a problem if it was boning combined with stretch fabric?

 And the red dress:

This is one is stretch satin. Does it need to be tighter or looser to get rid of the wrinkles?


  1. The dress is simply GORGEOUS!!
    I like it with the wrinkles, i.e. as it is. I guess if it is a bit loose it'll lose the wrinkles.

  2. Holy crap, you really need some PG food before you actually become 2D... Want some tomorrow?

  3. I think I look fine. I would love PG food though... got any rizses hus or paprikás csirke?


Leave me a comment. Comments make me happy!
