Now is the time....

to introduce the winner of my little give away last week. Haven´t forgot! Thank you for all your nice comments. I wish I could send give aways to all of you....
The random number generator picked Nancy for me:


"Well, number one never wins, but here goes.

Your first blog title was -

Nu är det dags!


I have no idea what that means! Maybe you will translate for us?


Happy Birthday....many more to come.."


Nancy, if I can have your mailing address I will send your parcel, still secret, this week. (Just a few stitches left....)

And of course I will translate, "Nu är det dags" means "Now is the time".
It was time to start blogging because we were busy working with my new studio and I had lots of pictures to show and lots of ideas for the future.....and a lot of projects going on.

Before that I worked as a seamstress for about 10 years, but I quit because it was boring to work with other peoples clothes and things and never use my own creativity.

When I look back after a year I´m sure I did the right thing! The last year has been a lot of fun for me. I still have lots of ideas for my studio and I´m sure the next year will be even better. Lucky me - a wonderful studio and lots of time to spend there!

This is how it looked about a year ago....

.......and later that summer.....

.....finished!

And this is how it looks today.....

(Ooops! I think I have to clean up that mess as soon as my "cute little foot" is alright again!)

"Nu är det dags" to go on stitching, lots of things are waiting for me.....

Take care,

Helena

Just catching up on blog reading. What a fantastic sewing space. Happy Birthday...age is not a number but a state of mind. That's how I view it. :o) So glad the sewing foot was not injured!

Just got around to seeing the photos of the the prom dresses you sewed. WOW, they are spectacular!!! I imagine the girls were the Belle's of the Ball in their dresses. Your daughter is beautiful. She looks a lot like one of my granddaughters with her very blond hair and fair skin. Did you follow a pattern or did you also design the dresses? I'll be waiting for the pictures of Josefin in a wedding gown that you have made!!!!! No rush!!
