|The marina of Grenaa, very Scandinavian don't you think|
I took a picture of my outfit in front of the mirror in our house hoping that I could catch the view we got to enjoy in the reflection but that didn't work. So I have it included seperatly in the collage I made.

Because a first glimpse of fall came very early this year to Northern Europe I changed my sewing plans shortly before the vacation and put away the more summery projects I wanted to make at first, including a Bombshell swimsuit and more Tap Shorts. But on the positive side I took a few freshly made tops with me (No. 3, 4, 5 (7)) which will be properly introduced to you in separate posts in the hopefully near future.
Speaking of fall, are you ready for a new season already? I am afraid I am not done with summer yet. There are still a few projects I want to do but won't be able to take them outside before next year. Should I go for them or is it more reasonable to start with my fall/winter plans, of which I also have plenty already?
Normally whenever I go somewhere I do my research on fabric stores in the area. This time I was (and still am) committed to Sally's Summer Stashbust and to avoid the temptation I did not do such thing. But of course when you aren't allowed to buy fabric there are still a few necessary things you can buy.
And some very sparkly ladybugs.
A danish sewing pattern (in danish, I'm still figuring out if this company has the seam allowance included or not) for a jumpsuit
free pattern from Sew Caroline) I have in the making.
I also got a wooden crochet hook in a size I could never find in Germany. I guess I only remembered this because I brought a crochet project with me I had started a few month before but it hadn't gotten much attention lately. At home usually sewing wins over crochet so this was the perfect moment.
Enough with the recap. Has your summer vacation brought you new sewing stuff of any kind or is it still to come? Aren't I the only one who can't completly step away from her hobby when she is away?
Thanks for stopping by,
