Meets and a Mini Vacation

A long update heading your way! I have been lazy lately (again!) and have put off updating this blog for weeks... but here it comes! All, or at least most of what has happened since my last posts.

First off there was a meetup in Stockholm so that we all could say goodbye to Vanessa who is moving to Vancouver! The weather was horrible but the meet itself was fun. Afternoon tea with a lot of tasty things. Om nom nom....

I wore my new hat to match my Mary Magdalene dress and I wish I could've gotten a better picture of my outfit but the weather did not allow it. So I'll just have to wear it again sometime soon. 

Then it was off to Umeå for a short little vacation with my father. 

My new little house where I have a studio for hatmaking and sewing and whatever else I feel like doing!

The views out my windows...

My wallpaper is awesome!

Views out over the lake...

The not-quite-finished interior of my house. I bought a bunch of new pretty boxes to keep my materials in. I particularly love the hatbox and the book box!

More of my amazingly awesome wallpaper!

I love my boxes! :3

Some new things I made while I was up there. Hairclips and combs with flowers. 

Oh, I went to a meet in Umeå too so here are some pictures from that:

That cardigan is, by the way, the coziest thing ever!

I think that's about it for now...

Oh and one last thing! I started sewing a dress a couple of days ago. I'm really liking the look of it!
