While sewing has not stopped, I found myself sacrificing blog time for sew time. With things getting busier and kids’ chauffeuring getting crazier, sew time has become more precious than ever. Photography takes time and I would rather step on my machine pedal than to set up the tripod. As a result, unblogged projects stays unphotographed. That’s where a vacation comes in handy. By adding a sprinkle of self made garments to the trip and voila! I’m finally posting and scheduling…a series of posts. And, yes! I’ve sewn some winter pieces, some of which will be keeping me warm during my longer stay in the UK this year end.
I’m typical Singaporean and FOOD is our national hobby. So, naturally a good start to any road-trip has got to be a good breakfast. And this Baked Eggs with Chorizo, Piquillo Pimento Sauce, Crunchy almonds and Goat’s milk cheese at The Hardware Societe in Melbourne was yum!
This is our family’s first road-trip. 3 days of driving along the Great Ocean Road. We stayed at a cottage near Port Campbell where every evening my favorite activity was getting the logs burning in our own fireplace. Cheap thrill I know but it’s not something we get to do at home ever.
Are you ready to go on a photo road-trip with me? Here goes…
Top: Robin Egg Blue Wool Cable Knit Sweater/ adapted from Sewaholic Renfrew. Honestly, this is a little too big and chunky for my liking so I may refashion it into sweaters for my kids.
Bottom: Culottes or what the vintage 70s pattern called pant skirt in pastel blue wool/ Simplicity 7672. I hated culottes growing up as a kid in the 70s (okay so I hated culottes, girly dresses and lace…) how that has changed! Love culottes, seriously! I wore this lots so you will be seeing a lot of it in the next post.
