Yesterday a friend of mine cut my hair. It is a bit shorter now then I planned, but I like it.

After a disastrous last year where I sewed almost nothing and most of it was a failure I finally are back on track. I found a pattern that I really like, New Look 6262. I already owned some dresses of this kind which are store-bought and are worn constantly (at least before I got pregnant). So I thought maybe I should make more of this kind, because I already know I wear these kind of dresses. Because if I am honest I did make a lot of dresses that are too fancy or uncomfortable for everyday wear. And it is a great pattern to show of all these special prints I so adore. This resulted in three of these dresses already sewn and at least three more are planned (means, already bought the fabric for these).
But on to the foxes. I bought the little one this great fox from Walnut Animal Society, then knitted him a fox hat and then thought how much fun it would be when I had a matching fox dress. So I searched for fabric and stumbled upon this gorgeous fox print.
The dress was really easy to make and very fast, too. I tried to be accurate and even hand stitched the facings down. Only the zipper is not even, but I really had no desire to fix this. I really like this dress, it is only a tad too long for my taste. I did make the other ones 5 cm shorter. But overall I like it and can't wait to wear it in the fall.

I really enjoy my little Stormtroopers // The little one loves this Kasper puppet we found some years ago on a park bench

We went to bed at the normal time (11:30 p. m.) and I was so tired, but because of the good weather and because the sometimes the world hates you, some stupid people decided to stand before the house and talk and play music and so on. And because it is hot I could not close the window.
So I did not fall to sleep and just before I did the little one woke up and cried really hard (1:30 a. m.). Fortunately my boyfriend came to bed right this moment and put the little one to sleep again. But of course the stupid people were not gone and then I was wide awake.
Youtube and Bloglovin entertained me for the last two hours and I am not sure when I want to go to bed again, because I hate to lie there and not sleep. So maybe I simply wait for the little one to wake up and be hungry (normally between 5 and 6 a. m.) and hopefully sleep then a bit.
A not so nice end to a very nice day. And I had so high hopes!

Today was the annual summer party of my former workplace. The motto was Brazil because of the WM. We watched the game, there were cocktails and cigars and some yummy food and even some Samba dancers.
I was a bit boring with my clothes because I had the little one with me in the carrier, but fortunately I had some nice earrings, a colorful headscarf and a hairflower.
The little one behaved himself well. Only after three hours it was all too much and we had to go home. I think he especially liked the dancers.
dress (maternity) - noppies
cardigan - Even&Odd
shoes - Hush Puppies
scarf - Lush
hairflower - Belle Blossoms
earrings - Topshop

The idea is to answer some questions and then tag three other bloggers to answer them too. So here we go:
What are you working on?
I have a lot of ideas for blog posts, but don't get around to write them. I even have photos for some of them. I really don't know what hinders me than my own laziness.
And please don't get me started on my sewing and embroidery. I think I have more UFOs here than I can remember. Which does not hinder me to start new projects or buy new fabrics. Oops!
But all in all it could be worse. Even with the little one I got around to make some things which are waiting to be shown on the blog.
And I finished a book last weekend.
How does your work differ from others in its genre?
Why do you write/create what you do?
How does your writing/creating process work?

The team of &Stitches organized a stitch swap and of course I had to participate. My swap partner Teresa (Daisies for Violet) is from the USA and she told me that New York is her favorite city. So I stitched her the skyline of New York. I am very proud of this work, because it is my first embroidery I did without a pattern. I simply searched for a skyline at Google and then changed it a bit to my needs. It took quite a while to finish this, but it was also much fun, especially towards the end, when all came together.
My swap partner send me this amazing embroidery:
It looks so neat and pretty. I still have to learn a lot about embroidery. Thank you so much Teresa!
Fun thing is, that Teresa has a son almost the same age as the little one. I hope we can stay in contact and exchange some experiences. It is so nice to meet other moms from all over the world.

I read this book before the birth of the little one and it was a really good read. The main subject of this story are religions. I really liked the ideas transfered in this book. It was no light read and especially the ending left me speechless for a while, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. The start was a bit slow. I waited for the tiger the whole time, but without the beginning you don't understand the rest. But I am not very patient as you know. But when the "real" story started I enjoyed the book very much.
You really should read this if you like a bit of philosophy or religion.

I only wanted to buy nursing pads and what did I got? Pacifiers, socks, muslin blankets and not only one but two packages of nursing pads. I simply can't resist all the cute stuff. And did you notice that baby stuff is everywhere and everything is just too adorable?

The little one was not so thrilled when I tried to get his footprints, but I think they turned out okay. I hope the recipients will like the cards.
Oh, and if you read this, I love you Mom!
