Thank you! I bought the book and am still looking for the perfect pattern. If all else fails, my mother has a friend who can supposedly make any pattern in the world (she's a sewing teacher) and I'll just go to her:)

I'll try "proper" gardening next year, although we don't really have a lot of space so I'm still not sure which vegetables I'll plant. I'm also used to growing everything from seeds (my father also grows tomatoes and such vegetables from seeds), but it was a bit late for that this year (we moved in the middle of summer).
On a similar note, is it possible to grow lettuce from seeds indoors (in bigger potts) during winter?

I've been trying to regrow vegetables from kitchen scraps for two months now  and some of them are actually growing quite well. I tried it with celery, leeks, lettuce and ginger. I thought they will grow a bit faster, but it might be the colder weather and lack of sunlight that is slowing them down (or maybe that's just the speed these vegetables normally grow at, I don't know:))

week 3:

week 8:

The only vegetable I'm not having any real success with is the lettuce. I guess I'm trying with the wrong kind (although I did try 3 different kinds) and it just starts growing the tall flowery part (or whatever that is called) and no leafs.

it looks like this:

So I was wondering, did anyone else try regrowing kitchen scraps and what was your experience with it? I'm thinking about trying it with other plants, but don't trust the general internet any more (since all of the regrowing articles claimed lettuce is perfect for regrowing:)) so I thought I might ask here first:)

ps: If you want to read more about my project, there's a report on my blog: http://pinkasblogblog.wordpress.com/2013/10/04/regrowing-vegetables-an-experiment/

Gorgeous. I especially love the collar part of it. I second everyone who said they would buy the pattern if it was available in pdf Smiley

I'm getting married next year and am seriously thinking about sewing my own dress, so I think it's about time I start working on it:) I'd say I have intermediate sewing skills and have never really worked with lace, so this shall be a fun experience. (I have to start trying things out now so I still have time to buy a dress if everything goes wrong:))

I was thinking about a tea length mostly lace dress and while googling I found this blog post: http://www.lovemydress.net/blog/2013/05/coloured-wedding-dresses-tinted-french-lace-tea-length.html

I fell in love with all of the dresses, but my favourite is the lavender one. I also like the fist two, but I'm afraid they wouldn't suit me since I have a, lets say, fuller bust. (Or would it? Gaah, it's so hard to decide what I want to wear:))

Anyway, did any of you nice ladies around here ever come across a pattern that could help me sew either? Or a book. Or anything:)? I searched etsy and amazon for vintage patterns but didn't really find anything.

Also, any advice on how I should tackle this? I really don't know where to start:)

Bautiful. Gumpaste flower making is so much fun and there are so many great tutorials on the net. I also really enjoy making mums, they usually turn out very nice:)
