Mama's Garden (or: stuffed zucchini)

My mom's garden is gorgeous. Not just to look at, but also to eat :-D

When my parents came to visit us a while ago, mom brought a home-grown zucchini as a gift. Finally I got around to cooking something out of it.

An all-time favourite when it comes to zucchini is stuffed zucchini. Wanna come along for cooking?

First, I cut the (huge!) zucchini in half.

To knit or to sew - that' s the question!

Lately, I've been showing you mostly garments I've sewed, but I also have been knitting quite a lot. Actually, I in some ways even prefer knitting to sewing because I can do it in the living room, spending time with other people in the house. My sewing machine is placed in our office/crafts room, so I cannot join J watching the latest episode of GoT when I sit there :-(

I've loved the Petrie top as soon as I saw it in the summer 2010 issue of knitty - it took my a while to get around to knitting it (and then some more to finish it), but finally it's done. Hooray!

Burda 01/2008 - 108: checked blouse

I liked this pattern already back in 2008 when the magazine appeared, but I only now got to sewing it (actually, I started to sew this blouse already quite a while ago, but I just recently finished it ;-) )

When I saw the pattern, I immediatley felt that it screamed after a fabric with geometric pattern, with the bib cut on the bias.

Little Girl's Summer Dress

I have the sweetest little niece. Lovely S turned 2 years this spring, and as a (belated) gift I sewed a summer dress.
