Living etc...

I´ve just moved house and this is my main source of inspiration . I´ve been subscribed for a fewyears and it never dissapoints me. They catch up with design trends quite quickly so that I never have too many "everything white" or "saturated colours" issues. Of course they feature houses and families way out of my league in price, location, or number of children but I thinkthat´s how it should be. They take great care in styling their interiors in line with the short storythey write. If it´s a bachelors pad the bedroom will be seen a bit untidy and champan flutes onkitchen. If it´s a family of seven children they´ll photograph toys all over the place.
I constantly flick through my issues for reference but this section of the web it´s great. I´ve been searching for girls rooms lately and these are just lovely.

I like this pale green colour mixed with a bit of pink. And note the curtain fabric by Cath Kidston, always a must for me.
In a perfect house I´d have this shelf (stuff included)

If I wanted to stay away from the pink I´d go for these beds. Again with the little dress included, although hang on... I´ve got a dozen like them in my cupboard. They are very spanish in taste. "Spanish grandmothers smock their little grandchildren dresses while tired grandfathers have their siesta"

And for a baby to be born this is a cheerful nursery

I think there´s a lot we can do with colour, and this is just a small example.

Garabatos :: Doodles
Esto es una muestra de lo que salía de mi lápiz esta semana...
These are some of the things that came out of my pencil this week...

The beginning

Bienvenidos a este blog
Como ya saben los que me conocen, hace muy poco que descubrí que llevo una costurera compulsiva dentro.
Espero que este blog me sirva de terapia para dejar de comprar telas que no uso, revistas que no leo, y sobre todo para dejar de fotografiar furtivamente los escaparates de Zara. O peor aun, a personas inocentes cuyo único delito es llevar ESE VESTIDO que desesperada me veo obligada a copiar.
Perdonadme aquellos que alguna vez habéis sido objeto de mi deseo.
Porque necesito coser de todo.
Bolsos, pijamas, cojines, edredones, pantalones de caballero, baberos..
No tengo limites.
Con este blog os iré descubriendo mis delitos y a mis cómplices.

Welcome to my blog.
As my friends already know, I'm a compulsive seamstress at heart.
I hope this blog helps me to stop buying fabrics I dont use and sewing magazines I dont read, and above all, I hope it helps me stop photographing innocent people with cute dresses. You people out there are sooo talented.
Forgive me if I ever have looked at you in a strange way. I was just probably scanning the pattern pieces of your blouse. When I look that way I'm on record mode, storing in my brain library the colour, fabric, trim details, lining, number of buttons, seams types, etc of that lovely dress you're wearing.
I told you.
I'm a compulsive seamstress off limits.
I introduce you to my obscure world of stitching crimes.
