One more TUSAL post

I'm late with my TUSAL post, but finally I have time so here it is. It's not much, but this year I'm into reading (again) more than stitching. So here are some photos (sorry for not so good quality).

I made a bet with my boyfriend that I will finish this project in 3 months. Wish me luck ;)

Some ideas and some photos

For the last days I have been doing some sewing, a lot of reading. I went to get a massage the other day. So nothing special, just ordinary and calm days.
I was really glad to get my first custom order this year. And I have already shipped it, looking forward for some feedback about the bag.

I have some ideas for creating a black collection incorporated with natural Lithuanian linen. Though it's all in my head at the moment. I need the start sketching, otherwise I'll forget most of the ideas (that happens a lot for me ;). This year I discovered that I really like making thing from linen. I will share some of my ideas soon.

Linen is one of the oldest fabrics in the world. It is very strong and tends to wrinkle a lot, though after every washing it becomes softer. This fabric breathes and absorbs moisture. And the most important thing - linen is environmentally friendly!
