This looks like it is going to be a longer blog post. I have not blogged for a while because it has been rather busy over here. Today, I would like to share with you what I have been up to in the past weeks.
I made another leather bag. This one is a wallet model but has a shoulder strap as well. I have been using it for many weeks now.
Summer is a great time to sell my skirts in the sun.

And Etsy is such a wonderful market place and social community. Two weeks ago I had a pleasure of receiving a visit from Brenda and her husband, who live in Switzerland. Brenda has an Etsy shop selling beautiful handmade jewelry called L’indecise. They stayed with us for one weekend.
Following are pictures of the weekend. The first one was an old windmill near my village. The second one is the Scheveningen beach. Both pictures were taken by Brenda. And the bottom picture is of Brenda herself learning how to make her own T.T. skirt in my studio.
This was really an Etsy weekend. On Sunday I cooked a big dinner and invited two other Etsy sellers and their partners (and one cute girl) to join us. One was Swee from Swiedebie and the other Nancy from Nancy van den Boom.
And I received lots of ♪ presents;) One example is a wearable original art from Nancy. It is a beautiful necklace with an original oil painting on each side of the pendant.
And here are pictures of flowers from Nancy, cute brooch from Swee and Swiss chocolate from Brenda.
That was a lovely weekend. And then, last weekend I had another visit from friends from Australia. One of my guests loved coloring.
And it was time to take some more pictures of the skirts. It took place in my house. This is my living room and I was the person behind the camera.
It was sunny and we had some shots in the garden too.
Yes, I have been BUSY.

Last but not least, my current project. I was testing the fabric. Washed it in the washing machine. I also made a sample skirt and blouse and washed them in the washing machine. Looking great.
That is it for today. I have two more things to blog about: firstly, my ‘really’ new skirts made of left over fabrics which are rather environmental friendly, and secondly my new leather bag project.
