Fadanista begins!

I have long thought about starting a blog, but didn’t know if I could sustain it when I work full-time. However, I have always done travel journals and enjoyed the process, and thought a blog about some of my other activities might be a useful addition. I also want to document my creative journeys, particularly as I grow my expertise – I have gained so much from other people’s blogs that I thought it might be fun to have a go.

I have just returned from a trip to New Zealand’s South Island – wonderful countryside, beautiful scenery, fabulous food – but I kept being drawn to the fabric shops. Here is a sample of some of the fabric I bought.

  1. hi from Switzerland,
    I have just finished reading your whole blog. Every single post and I started beginning of August.. ok, I guess, the newest posts I still will have to read but I really must give you a big compliment about what you are doing. Not only was it very interesting to read about your traveling, I also
    bought a few patterns which you have made during the last years… we seem to have the same
    “problem” haha, a huge stash.. of fabric and yarn.. I am also a hoarder of knitting books and cook books and shoes…
    I wish you the most fantastic day and I am looking forward to read more of what you are creating..from now on, I will reply on your single posts but it would have taken me ages if I would have done it while reading all your posts… thank you again for a great time while reading…
    ciao ciao Christa

    1. Oh Christa, thank you so much for this lovely comment – it’s my birthday today and you have totally made my day! I also hoard books and shoes, but my husband is the cook book hoarder as I don’t cook (he cooks, I sew). I look forward to many “conversations”!
