Hot and Bothered

Miss Blogger from Hot and Bothered hosts a give-away for some really great scrap-booking things. That´s the main topic in her blog. I am not so into scrap-booking, but I really like to read about and see her creations. She always has such a great vintage look. I wish I had more time to try out all these interesting crafting things I read about at other blogs.
Miss Blogger is also a very talented photographer. Every time I see her photos I know I have much to learn.

Now wish me luck for the give-away!

Embroidery Patterns - Wild Olive

I am really into embroidery right now. I have so many plans (hopefully i have enough time for all of them). And I stumbled at a very cute shop at etsy:

Her designs are so adorable. My first project are some christmas motives I want to use as an advent calendar. I really like Pdf-embroidery patterns. They are affordable and you can print them again and again.

Mollie even has a very nice blog with a lot of free patterns and how-tos.

I am sorry, that this is such a short post, but I am still a bit ill (it caught me on Saturday and I am happy I was able to go to work today) and I left my camera with all the photos at my boyfriends home. Hopefully I can post my graveyard photos this week. Last week I was so busy with such a lot of things.

New Patterns


I was a bad girl and bought quite a lot of patterns the last weeks (even today I bought one). So some of them arrived already. I really like the new Simplicity retro pattern. It looks like the right thing for winter sewing.
And isn´t this 30s pattern just adorable. I can imagine this for spring.
The new Colette book also arrived. From the first view it looks very informative and the patterns are simple but perfect for everyday. Maybe I can have a closer look this week, because I have a free week. I am not so sure I can sew very much, have some other more important things to do. But I hope I can write some blog posts. Still have some photos from friday.

Now I patiently wait for the other patterns to arrive, something from the 40s to today.

Weekend at my parents home

Last weekend we visited my parents. Sunday we were at our local (very tiny) zoo. The weather was so nice and it was really fun to watch the animals. The zoo is small and there are no exotic animals, but we still enjoyed it very much. And of course I took photos.

A Sunday with Dracula

Yesterday we had a Lolita meet-up here at Halle. We wanted to go to the opera to see the musical "Dracula". I was at the premiere of this play, but I couldn´t miss the chance to see some people again. It was a long time I didn´t go to a meet-up.

But before we went to the opera we were a the "Stadtgottesacker" a really old graveyard. It was so beautiful there with all the colorful leaves. I think I could have stayed there for hours and hours taking pictures. Here are some of my favorites:





I did not wear something very special lolita, because I am not in the fashion so much anymore and I wanted something comfortable for the opera. Here is what I wore:



It was fun to meet all the other lolitas. I am glad I was there. The musical was quite okay, I enjoyed it more than the first time. After the opera we were at the Wok Bar. It was a very nice afternoon and evening.
