When the local library surprises you

Tweet Sometimes you get pleasantly surprised by little towns and things they can offer. The other day I popped into the library on my way to work to pick up a book, and hidden away in a corner was a lovely large display of historical clothes and dolls! Katrineholm’s library IS on a whole a very nice one, especially for the size of the town it is in, but finding an exhibit like this there was still a surprise! The collection was owned by a lady (Elin was her name) who lived from 1890 till 1962 and was very active … Continue reading

Hello again! Still alive over here!

Tweet Hello! I cannot believe how long it has been since I wrote on this blog the last time. Over a year and half! And why? I don’t know. Things happen, you get in a rut, and the longer you go from writing, the harder it is to get back to it again. I guess it’s been, not necessarily always so busy, but in several ways quite a hard, stressful year for me, and I’ve struggled to keep on top of things anyway. And so the blog has just been one of those things that has had to suffer for … Continue reading

Waterloo part 2 – Balls and Battles

Tweet So the ball and the battle? Well I said I’d write about those next so that’s what I’m going to do. As I’m sure you all know, in 1815 on June 17th there was a big ball held in Brussles; the Duchess of Richmond’s Ball. And at this ball many of the British officers were attending, as well as all the high and mighty people of society who were present. And it was during this ball that a messenger came with the news that Napoleon’s army was getting close, and Lord Wellinton (who was also at the ball) informed … Continue reading

Waterloo part 1 – Camp life

Tweet Greetings everyone! After I wrote last time things with the blog have not worked out quite like I planned. We were traveling for 5 weeks with no internet at all and when we came back the internet at our home had been shut off until Christmas sometime, because of them re-doing the whole system. Also my plans of using Instagram more hasn’t so far worked very well either, it for some reason refuses to work on my phone despite all the things I’ve done to try to get it working. But I haven’t completely given up on it yet. … Continue reading

Checking in really quickly

Tweet Hello everyone! This is just a short brief post to check in with you guys. It’s been a crazy last few weeks. First with the end of school and then packing up the apartment we were staying at, going back home to my family in the countryside, unpacking everything again, re-arranging our room to fit things in, working a few days and any spare time has been spent sewing. As I’m sure many of you know next weekend is the big 200 year anniversary reenactment of the battle of Waterloo in Belgium. Like thousands of others Andrew and I … Continue reading

My outfits are finally done! This is what they looked like on the catwalk!

Tweet Ok finallay, after a whole school year of sewing a couple of days ago it was time for the end of year show and catwalk. I’ve already mentioned this coming up, and it was a very stressful week leading up to it, we had a different project (costumes for a big opera that we had been asked to make!) that needed to be completed in very short time. So it was a very full on week with long days. And then there was the catwalk!    We all had the choice between being part of the catwalk or have … Continue reading
