I consider myself fairly avarage in the normal department. Not too much of either or…no addictions to speeak of – well except when it comes to coffee. I try to keep it down – but it is verging on being a lost cause (headaches when I forget to have my coffee, hmmm).

So mostly normal…or so I thought. But taking stock of my fabrics (felt a little pressured to do so after various comments) it sems that I was wrong. Very much so. You might even say I have a rather substantial addiction going on.



Okay, fair enough maybe not that bad an addiction in the eyes of the public – the topic for my addiction – it isn’t in the ‘I-need-a-support-group-and-soon’-genre. Though, when you have a very large chest filled up, several boxes in the basement, other boxes in the apartment and under the bed…plus plus plus… living in a small apartment the coming of new fabrics really should match the projects – just to keep it all level. And here is where it goes wrong.

It isn’t that I don’t have an idea when i find new fabric – I always do. To my defence I never buy fabric without a purpose – it is just that there just isn’t enough time to do it all. So some project gets left of for a while…and yes some I forget, though I try to make notes as not to forget. But I just don’t alway carry my notebooks around with me.

This have become a whole lot easier as I just godt my first smartphone – meaning easy access to my notebooks. No excuse to forget now.

Hi I'm Jane. I live in a small apartment which is suffering under my many crafts and hobbies. I't sometimes seems as I live with them rather than the other way around. I grew up with all sorts of sewing crafts and I just haven't been able to choose just one or two. What I choose to do on any given day is pretty much up to mood and plans. So even though my figure and the clothes I love to wear fits together they are seldom in fashion and as I'm not very tall (making most dresses and skirts too long) - well, sewing my own clothes and then spicing it up with a bit of modern fashion seems to be the way to go for me. Even with the ongoing Mad Men fever there seem to be a lack of proper clothes for me to wear. Other than that I'm studying the European Union and English with a focus on communications and cooperation with the worlds developing countries; a lot of them being former European colonies. Dreary-sounding to most people but I love the mix of politics, culture, economics and social development. To take the egde of my studies I practice yoga - as much as possible - if I can get away with it I spend a least an hour (or...) on my practice. But it is much more than it is really good for me - I also really need as I'm training to run a marathon or two. And now - new hobby - learn how to manage a blog...which is not as easy a I thought - mainly al the technical stuff of arranging the site...hmm...hopefully it'll come to me...soon...
