*** Next project are more exciting, I promise! ***
I wanted to post this 2 weeks ago before we went to Belgium to visit family and friends, but never got round to taking pictures (and now I only got round to snapping a few bad pics with my mobile phone), so here it is now…
My Deer and Doe Airelle.
It could be because I really hate what the neck facing is doing, and I don’t know if it is my fault for messing up, or if the pattern is just not wide enough, or maybe it has something to do with my fabric… More on that later… Another possibility is the fact that it is a shirt and thus I am forced to wearing pants (or a skirt if I had one that goes with it) and I don’t like waistbands. At least not in summer, in cold weather I don’t mind because I have to wear stockings anyway. So I’ll just put this shirt away until my body doesn’t reject waistbands anymore.
Someone please stop me when I’m in a fabric store and keep looking and coveting the slippery stuff and redirect my attention to the cottons? It is some kind of polyester because this fabric DOES NOT breathe. It sticks to my body and I feel sweaty after about 30 seconds.
But just look at this fabric… They are poodles. POODLES, I tell you. How can you pass on poodles? You are absolutely right, you can’t! And so now I am paying the price…
Due to my attraction to the poodles, I’m in a lot of trouble with the neck facing. I not only understitched the facing, I even stitched it in place under the collar, but it still pops up… Anybody have any idea how to remedy this? Preferably a method that does not involve invisible handstitching…

THE 5 SUPER SWEET QUESTIONS – these are really hard for me to answer because I don’t eat processed foods, especially if it involves anything made from soy and it’s derivates and refined sugar, but I am a sinner sometimes, so here goes:
1 – Cookies or Cake?
Homemade Chocolate-Chip Cookies, definitely my favorite. But my mom makes a wicked apple-cake too…
2 – Chocolate or Vanilla?
Chocolate, the darker the better, no doubt about it. Belgian genes, do I need to say more? (But my favorite chocolate is Spanish, a brand named Amatller Chocolate. They have some über-cute tin can packages).
3 – Favourite Sweet Treat?
Marshmallows, I can just keep eating those.
4 – When Do You Crave Sweet Things The Most?
When I am tired, the sugar-rush wakes me up for a little while.
5 – Sweet Nick Name?
I am not deserving of a sweet nickname, but my mom sometimes calls me “Zoetje” which translates as “Sweetie”.
I nominate the following bloggers – I don’t know if any of these people already received this award, but here goes:
