I noticed something... apparently for me there seems to be a window for blogging and writing emails each Monday. Every week I am looking forward to it, imagining the wildest things I'm gonna do... like starting a whole series of new postings with that one first posting that will break the ice.
But Mondays come and go, followed by Tuesdays which usually simply make me realize that I have been missing that window again... Again!
I think I am just incredibly lazy and instead of being your ordinary Scarlett who would wait for tomorrow, I have developed an aggravated Scarlett Syndrome, always waiting for another week.
That's scary. Getting older one should be getting quicker because time's running out, sooner or later.
In this sense, I'd like to kick off a week of quick postings, maybe daily postings even, to discipline that old, lazy Scarlett again.
Before getting to my latest craftings, I'd like to let you peek into our home a bit.
We recently have been getting some furniture for our washitsu (Japanese room). Nothing surprising. Awfully new and clean and just what would be expected in a home like ours.
Some chabudai (low table) and zabuton (cushion) and a classic lamp made of bamboo and paper. All so unoriginal but also all so very fitting and highly enjoyable. Especially now during rainy season. This room has become a favourite of all of us. So great to sit and play or knit, have some sweets, looking outside.
Just as simple is the dress I had been making for Dagny last month. Similar colours, too... must be the weather which makes us want fresh things.
The pattern is from a Japanese book, kids no fudangi, happy homemade vol.2, ISBN 978-4-579-11243-2. I really like the simple style of the clothes in the book (which I bought only last month although it has been around for some time) and intend to try out a few more patterns. The pieces all look quite easy and seem to not overwhelm neither the sewer nor the child wearing the clothes.
Dresses, tops and pants. No essential book maybe, but one that's charming and makes you want to sew.
The dress turned out a bit large but Dagny doesn't mind.
I hope they won't take care of that wonderful meadow across the street too soon!!!
The summer holidays have just started.
Until tomorrow then!
