bianka, pablo and me
We've been there on Monday and Tuesday again and loved it(especially the kids). A fresh bit of design,re-design and recycled design and a wonderful occasion to chill out a bit with some friends and even to hang out with some people not seen for a long time...

My sister and her friends were engaged in creating the "stage" for the Erste bank.

There were so many interesting exhibitions and happenings in the city as there was the Belgrade Design week running.
I'll be able to show you soon some fresh designs I'm working on at the moment, some silk screen prints on linen:)Marta made her drawings too for that occasion.

embroidered buttons
Oh, and talking about linen, look what I made last week....I have tried to embroider some flowers on linen...well, exept those bullion roses that I'm familiar with making, those aren't so great...I have the yarn being unthreaded and clueless about how to make certain knots, but I still do like them:)

Poppy LOVE

poppies

I love this part of the spring/summer....lovely poppies almost everywhere around....

poppies

Of course, everything looks different now, taken with the new camera and I'm just practicing, as there are many new features that should be explored better:)

poppies

I took some pics of the kids while playing during the weekend, and WOW, I can finally get those precious little moments unblurred. And the best part is the fields depth....blurred background in contrast with the clean subject...it was something I could only do if setting my old canon PowerShot A720IS to a macro...but the options were anyhow limited.

bianka and peonies

pablo

Marta was one week away with the school, enjoying here, so couldn't test it on clothes...but will make the effort to do it ASAP..can't wait to see the twirlability options:)

Going RED with the Kimono Blossom

kimono blossom dress

I suppose that you have noticed some fresh, vivid changes regarding my layout....yes, I have finally changed my header:)
Fresh poppies, hot summer weather and my latest creation - Kimono Blossom dress made me do it...and I LOVE it!!!!

kimono blossom It features the most beautiful Oilily reprint fabric, very pricey and very hard to find. I'm so lucky to have it still in red and even blue colorway and I love how it turned out.





bodice

We had a wonderful, hot day at our weekend getaway house, and Marta and I had a great time doing the pictures of this stunning dress. I will try to upload the rest of the pictures tomorrow and maybe even list it on eBay, but in the meantime, here are some pics of the Work in Progress (I just love the bodice and being a perfectionist, I just love to take care of all the details, lining, tags, etc. while creating)
