Just wanted to pop in to say hi and a humongous thank you for all the encouragement too. Things have been plenty better this week with several interviews. The positions are mostly a step down from what I was doing but with good companies so keep your fingers crossed. Unfortunately, the whole process has kept me off the internet for the most part but here are a couple of things entertaining me this week:
Personalised croquis are popping up all over – I think the Colette Sewing Handbook was a popular present this Christmas! The one above is from one of my favourite new discoveries – Shona Stitches.
And Lauren from Lladybird has a great tutorial for creating a digital version.
Other Mini-versions of your favourite bloggers:
- Ms Modiste
- Un Peu de Couture
- Bee-Bee’s Vintage Dress
- Lux Per Diem
- And then there is the queen of croquis Polka Dot Overload who was all over this long before it was cool (;-)) with her amazing illustrated versions.
- Handmade Mess has a hilarious pictorial description of the trials of making your own wardrobe.
- Bernie and I makes great Detail Inspiration posts like the collars one above.
I’m off to the Crafters Ceilidh first thing tomorrow so it’s early to bed with me. I’ll leave you with this gorgeous sunrise at my Aunty’s place north of Auckland and the playlist I’ve been listening to all week. Have a peaceful weekend and if you’re off to Edinburgh too – See You Soon!
