Sewing with Nana

Hi there!

These days are a bit crazy… just can’t believe it is already April! I need to step up a gear… or two! At the moment I have about a thousand unfinished designs lying around my desk, so I just need to stop coming up with new ideas and actually finish up some of the ones I already have! Will try to scan and post some of the sketches I’ve been working on very soon, see if that gets me started!



Today I had my second sewing class with my grandma! She is 93 and awesome! :) She was actually trained as tailoring teacher, so she’s amazing at explaining what is what and how to do about everything. And thankfully she have tones of patience!!! :) She has a lovely vintage sewing machine, pedal included. It’s the most beautiful thing, and works to perfection! That is the machine… because I turned out to be quite a masterful thread snapper! The good thing is that now I can truly say I know how to thread the old thing! :)

By the way, anyone’s seen this video? It is definitely not how I would decorate my home, but still think it’s quite amazing! Specially loving the bike and the neon signs (sadly I can’t say the same about those poor stuffed things…)

Love, Adri


Jan… what?

… so we made it to Buenos Aires, & just like that, the month is gone… it’s amazing how fast time flies when you are on the move! I can’t help being amazed that we are already half way through our trip (even though our pockets certainly feel it)…

Anyway, as now we are starting a more paced part of the trip, I thought it would be nice to try and recap this past days. So here are some of the moments I loved.

“Blending” in Brazil. This picture always makes me laugh… Amy & Zoë all nice, and Jade & Stanley… well, being Jade and Stanley! :) Fun Times!

The first morning of engagement! :) It was some stupid early hour, like 6.30 (we got up hoping to see the sunrise from the roof terrace, but guess what? Clear as the morning was, the sun did not make an appearance (I hear it was busy pleasing the newly engaged couples from the other side of the mountains…)

Snow in Chicago! (& still it wasn’t as cold as Dallas would be! Who would have guessed?!)

Chloé & Joshua. The greatest pair Ever!

Stanley embracing the cowboy culture in Fort Worth. Ha! :)

Cakes in Mexico’s stolen morning.

Me & my camera in Valparaiso (Chile). I must have taken hundreds of pictures of the coulorful houses!! (saving them for a soon to come post ;)

Ha! A little gnome spotted popping his head out of a Jesuit Estancia in Alta Gracia (Argentina)

Love, Adri
