I hope you had wonderful christmas holidays! Mine were just perfect with family, games and lots of fabulous food, which I just could not get enough of!
So today I am going to do a little showcase of my presents. My parents got me the following two books, which I wanted to have for some time already.
|Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life|
Of course, I haven't read the whole book, yet. But even just the photos, illustrations and graphics are worth having it. This woman has just been so amazing and I cannot wait to get to know her better.
|Boutique Knits: 20 +|
I am a total knitting newbie, but this book is just so inspiring, that I am willing to go through this torture of learning how to knit. I hope that I can understand those instructions soon. Does anybody has some advice on how to learn knitting best? Another book or website?
My boyfriend got me an half year subscription of BurdaStyle and in addition these ergonomically designed Prym sewing tools!
Hopefully these will put an end to my tortured hands. :)
And last but not least I got this chic Fifi Lapin brooch. Do you know her? The most fashionable bunny worldwide?
Hihi, I just love her!
I am so into brooches, anyway, these days. How come they have been neglected as jewellery for such a long time?
And here comes one more christmas present I made for my boyfriend. A striped, color blocked sweater. Which is just as comfy as it looks! Luckily, I did not have to do any changes and he could wear it immediately. :)
Maybe you remember my wish for a sewing closet? My father has been working hard on it for about 2 months already! I would have never imagined, that it would take so much time and effort to build it! Unfortunately, he was not able to finish it for Christmas Eve. But that just ain't no problem! I can wait and am looking forward to finally get my hands on and my sewing stuff into that closet! :)
