This project is very worthy for improving sewing skills and self-esteem overall but I cannot help telling about me whining as this latter was an integral part of the work indeed and hardly I could finish the sewing without it. I even couldn't begin without it :-) It was clear from the spring that this summer wouldn't give us much chance to spend the time in the most desirable way. So my plan for the holidays was to have at least one-day trips as often as possible and to devote as much time as possible to my blog. Generally it went in this way for some time and I could sew few simple things. Then the time of this outfit came. I cut it with pleasure but instead of instant start of sewing, a couple of days after that were wasted to making a right plan how to sew the dress quickly. Then the weather became so hot that the process was postponed for about a week. When the outdoors temperature decrease, I came back to work but my main activity was repeating the words like "I will sew it the rest of my life", or "why I started it", or "it has so many details, it takes the eternity to make" and so on. None of productive thoughts. At last after one more week of whining the idea about getting stuck into this project by the end of the holidays prevailed and the process moved.

- My blog's main subjects are sewing, the thing in which I am experinced the most, and beadwork, which is, in fact, pushed me into blogging. I am also engaged in knitting and crocheting. All together they are the set of skills which I use to make my wardrobe my whole life. These are not my only interests, I also like English language (that's one of the reasons that my blog is bilingual), try to travel around my country and abroad (when can afford), am interested in art (to the degree of a dilettante but nevertheless) and adore the people who can create anything beautiful or useful whatever it is :-) So welcome to a needlecrafter diary!
