Two sides of fall – part one (photos)

WOW I didnt knew it has been this long time since my last post.:(

A wunderful summer with going to the beach, being lazy sometimes, hunting Pokemon and skipped my sewing lessons for more than 2 months is over.❤

Besides my vacation on the beach I didnt made lots of photos this summer.

But when the colors of the leaves started to change, the apples and grapes looked so delicious I had to take my camera  to make photos.

I made a lot of photos this day. When checking them on my computer I saw that I could put them in 2 categories.

Part one very colorful with red, green, orange. Part two brown, grey.

Both categories are lovely. I for myself prefer the colorful part, but fall wont exist without the second part.

Just see for yourself🙂












Summertime – fruits time (photos)

One thing of summertime I love are the bushes and trees full of fruits.

It is also the time I eat a lot of fruits.Not because its healthy, but because I want to.

Saturday I went to a supermarket and came back with lots of fruits.

The colors, the smell of them – overwhelming❤

I couldnt resist to make photos😀








The cherries and strawberries were so good, have to get more because they are my favs😀


My new sewing baby :D

Since my first day at the sewing course I wanted an overlock maschine !

There are so many manufacturers for overlocks. I needed some time and experience with overlocks and read a lot about it to decide what make of overlock I want.

Then I had to wait. The overlocks I put on my wish list has been way to expensive.

Once or twice a month I searched for used overlocks with a price I’m willing to pay.

Last week I got lucky. I found one of the overlocks from my wish list. And the price was fine with me.

Here is my new “used” baby❤❤❤


I got so excited I ordered the same day I bought this overlock a lot of yarn hihi

Yes, there  are a lot of colors, but I saw in the past with fabrics of every color you can see and will in the future. .


Here is my first sewing with my new baby


Here my new shirt. I love this pattern. Not sure how many shirts like this I had made so far. Maybe 10 or more😀


Beaches and ports – Photos

I love being on a beach!

The smell of the ocean, the sound of the waves, the crying of the seagulls, the wind in my hair – nothing calms me down more then this.

When getting on a beach it is like coming home .❤

I hope this photos shows the happiness I feel when being there.

To see the photos in its original size just click on it🙂








The sand isnt this colorful – those are rests of broken seashells.


This photo is used with my theme🙂


My footprints😀


I’m not a big fan of sunset photos but you can’t be at the beach not shooting them hihi


The next photos are made at various ports




I have no idea what these things are. But look at the amazing colors❤



I hope you liked to see my love for this places🙂

DIY Bags with Retro fabric

This bag tutorial I found on the internet here: Summer fling bag tutorial

I liked this bag very much because you can sew them with 2 different pattern.

2 of my colleagues had birthdays a few weeks ago.

Yes, I’m a little late.😦

First I had the flu and had to cancel my sewing course and second those bags needed way more time to sew then I expected.

To save time I made both bags together. Means if I sew the zipper in one bag, my next step has been the zipper to the second one.

Maybe I will sew this bag for me too🙂

Isnt the fabric amazing? Unfortunality I can’t sew a bag with the Splittie anymore because I used all fabric I had for this bag.

But hey, a gift is more  valuable when you would like to keep it yourself hihi


I changed the pattern from the tutorial a little

The original bag is closed with a magnet. I added a zipper.

And here I made a mistake by sewing both bags at the same time and made my error twice.

The fabric stripe for the zipper is too wide. Half of it would have been better.

But I have been too far with sewing this bags and didnt wanted to change it not ones but twice.

Take a look


Here my next mistake.

The original bag has a wonderful inner pocket with another fabric than the lining.

IF I sew a bag for myself I will add the zipper as I did but will make it look like the original inner pocket from the tutorial.

When I saw the zipper for the inner pocket it was red on red.

Did you once needed something in your bag and couldnt find it because it has been to dark?

This is the reason I added a stripe next to my zipper. Its easier to find the zipper now.


I also added 2 slip pockets for a mobile or whatever it will be used to.

I took the lining fabric twice to make it more stable.


At the end not to forget to use my new “toy” on leather hihi


Lets hope both colleagues will like their bags🙂

How a duckling found a Star – A Photo Story

Like every spring I went on  a duckling hunt with my camera. I just love these cuties❤

But just showing the photos is a little boring.

I decided to write a little story with my photos🙂

Besides the star I added and cutting the photos I didnt change them. The animals really made this “faces” LOL . This photos longed for a story



Meet duckling Belle and her brothers


One day Belle’s brothers tried to play a trick with their baby sister. They told her last night has fallen a star into their pool.


A STAR? Really?” Belle asked excited and went to the pool. She wanted to see the star.


Maybe the water was too dirty or it was a really small star. Belle couldnt see the star and jumped in the pool.


Lets see how long she will look for the nonexisting star” said one of her brothers and they went after Belle


Two of her brothers loughed so hard they couldnt even stay anymore.


Poor Belle swum the pool one – two – three times but couldnt find the star.

She even asked her neighbor.

A star? In our pool?” asked Duck Smitty.



She and her babies searched the pool too.


When Belle lost all hope to find the star and startet to get out of the pool she saw something sparkled in the water.


Belle dove to the bottom of the pool and there it was: her STAR

This little star has seen how sad Belle has been and went to earth to help her


Belle was so proud to have found the star. She swum around the pool to show everyone her star


Her brothers couldnt believe what they have seen and  jumped in the pool to find a star of their own.


Belle never managed to get out of the pool with one try only. But now with the star she could jump high like never before.



Belle’s brothers were not this lucky. They didnt even had enough energy to get right out of the pool.


 And Daddy’s dressing down  finished them off.


Duck Smitty’s babies were so tired after searchung the star for Belle they tried to sleep in the pool.


 But her Mom put them right there were sleepy babies has to be – out of the water and close to Mom and Dad.


Belle  walked around with her star for all to seeand was the happiest duck on earth.

End of Belle’s story!
