Life Lately - June

Hi there, lovelies!              Hallo, Ihr Lieben!

Here's a mix of snap shots, dslr and instagram photos




This month I've been working on a lot of custom orders, more so than usual. Therefore, I'm a bit behind in stocking my Peridot shop and working on my personal sewing projects. After all the rain we've had I'm happy to see the veggie plants growing. Hopefully we'll be able to harvest zucchini and cherry tomatoes in another month or two. I spotted a car obviously belonging to a serious #worldcup fan and some whimsical street art, which is actually strongly discouraged in this boring orderly little town. Meanwhile I've been receiving lots of fun new fabrics (especially for boys) as well as a huge box full of webbing, zippers and buckles for bag making projects. I've bought myself a new pair of sneakers and made a pair of summer-y butterfly dangle earrings! Leo is feeling more confident these days and even ventured into the living area and on to the couch :)

Diesen Monat hatte ich reichlich Kundenaufträge. Da blieb wenig Zeit für persönliche Nähprojekte. Trotz des tagelangen Regens freue ich mich, dass der Tomatenstrauch und die Zucchinipflanzen es gut überstanden haben und schön gewachsen sind. Viel mehr Sonne könnten sie (und ich!) natürlich immer gebrauchen. Hab dieses ulkig bemalte Auto entdeckt - offensichtlich gehört es einem patriotischem Fan. In der vergangenen Woche habe ich witzige Patchworkstoffe erhalten und werde diese so schnell es geht in mein Stofflädchen einstellen. Außerdem habe ich mir nach langer Zeit ein Paar neue Sneaker gegönnt und sommerliche Schmetterlingsohrhänger gefertigt! Leo fühlt sich anscheinend immer sicherer, denn er hat sich bis in den Wohnraum gewagt und noch dazu auf die Couch :)

How's your month been? Any special happenings?

Und gab's bei Euch besondere Ereignisse diesen Monat?

  1. Liebe Duni,
    was für eine tolle Bilderzusammenstellung! Bei den Sneakern frage ich mich allerdings, ob Du sie einfach so anziehst oder ob es Dich jetzt auch ins Lager der Jogger geweht hat? Und wie schön, dass Du viele Nähaufträge hattest, aber übernimm Dich nicht. Mein Monat war eher durchwachsen, aber das schreib ich Dir mal separat.
    Ganz liebe Grüße,
    Karin

  3. Hallo Duni,
    das sind wunderbare Momentaufnahmen aus Deinem Monat Juni. Die Blume ist so schön warm mit ihrem Gelb und der Stoff ist witzig. Die Ohrringe gefallen mir sehr gut. Und ja, mein Highlight diesen Monat war die Island-Reise. :-)
    Viele Grüße Synnöve

  6. Liebe Duni,
    Dein Leo passt so wunderbar zu der pinkfarbenen, weichen Decke - da kann ich gut verstehen, dass er sich bis zum Wohnraum traut! :-)
    Das Auto ist ja der Hammer! Wo hast Du dass denn entdeckt? Meine Güte, da will ich gar nicht ans Saubermachen denken! Aber wahrscheinlich ist dies dem Eigentümer eh egal! ;-)
    Ich habe mir jetzt übrigens auch pinkfarbene Hortensien gegönnt. :-) Das musste einfach sein!
    Liebe Grüße

  17. It looks like your garden is growing nicely! With how fast zucchini grow, you may be sampling it in less than a month.

    The DFB van is fun. I bet they were happy with today's match!

  21. The painted car cracks me up! The World Cup fever in the USA right now too. I hope you get a lot of veggies from your plants. :) I'm happy for Leo and his growing confidence. He looks very happy!

  22. One great thing about the custom orders it gives the opportunity to see someone else vision and work with a real person. Bad things about the custom work it is time consuming with communication and definatelly stretched yours creative opinion:) .... I wishing you more happy sales dear friend!

  27. Oh Duni what a lovely container garden you have!

    I love the German fan love on that car...Germany looking strong in the WC, as expected...

    We are having a rainy evening in with neighbors down the road tonight. I think some delivery szechuan noodles and a glass (or two) of peppery pinot grigio are in my immediate future ;)

  30. Duni, sometimes I find excitement and interest over boring and old towns. Haha Call me weird but I love things that does not seem to interest others.

    You got a perfect shot of the little bird. :)
