Month: June 2014
My first weekend in Aberdeen is over. My mother came to visit me so that I had some to have a wander round with and get my bearings. We also went to the seaside and I have some pictures of this that I might upload… My only reservation right now is that the seagulls around here are pretty terrifying! I also managed to get this pair of shorts put together at some point during the weekend; they actually started life from a pattern for a ‘sexy’ Halloween dress: who would have guessed it? Anyway as you can see my camera has trouble capturing anything that isn’t a close up (I’ve owned it for nearly 2 years and still not figured out why so I’m starting to think it’s broken- if anyone out there knows why this is happening I’d love to know!(except the fact that I might just be stupid)). But yeah I took the close up as due to the blurring it’s hard to make out how gathered these are and just how much fabric is involved. I’ll be off to Berlin this week so I’ll probably do a holiday post soon.

I’ve decided to have a go at blogging. Mostly because it’s something that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Also because I now live in Aberdeen-which is a big move from my hometown. I actually don’t know anyone yet or anything about Aberdeen and I thought that was a good excuse to push myself to do something creative with all my spare time (at home in Newcastle I had family and friends to spend it with!) So this is a little place I plan to document my creative work (I’m a fashion graduate), some DIY stuff (I like to make things), possibly some outfit posts and just my general misadventures I get into whilst trying to get used to my new Scottish home!
