BurdaStyle Book and New York

BurdaStyle, my favourite sewing website, just released their first book! It's a sewing handbook with five patterns and lots of variations made by different BurdaStyle members from around the world. You can read more info about it here.

I submitted some sketches for two designs and they picked the coat for me to make! I was sent the pattern and some beautiful wool and I had a crazy week  last summer making a warm autumn coat for a tight deadline. And now finally the book is out!


I decided about a week ago to go to New York. I go on Monday for two weeks. I am soooooo excited!! I haven't felt this excited about something in a very long time. Flight prices weren't as high as I thought they would be so I decided to go on this trip instead of buying an overlocker.... Will have to start saving again for that when I come back :)

I can't wait to meet up with my friends there. And to see a new city! I have spent a day or two in the US on stop overs and the people I met didn't exactly make me really interested in that country (I was 17, travelling alone, and met loads of weirdos... this will be very different. Still going alone but I'm ten years older and will now be able to legally drink :)

 I am sooooo looking forward to New York!
