Yesterday afternoon, I took out my sewing machine, found some pretty fabric and made myself a very easy circle skirt.
After just 1.5 hours of sewing I was very happy with the result, which I`m almost never when I make something for myself.
So, I thought I`d show you the result.
Then, when I wrote in my journal this morning and wrote down todays date, I noticed something and I knew I had to write this post today.
Because today is my Nonnis Birthday.
She died when I was 8, so I never really knew her.
But, I sew with her old sewing machine.
I didn`t know that she sewed a lot, until I began sewing and my dad told me, that she wanted to be a dressmaker, but didn`t had the chance to.
So, everytime I sew, I feel connected to her.
My Nonni sitting on my Nonnos lap.
Actually, Grandmothers are called "Nonna" in italian, but I just called her Nonni when I was little, and everyone still calls her so.
I`m wearing leggings, shirt and lacevest from h&m, the pearlnecklace was a gift and my lipstick is Chanel rouge coco "mademoiselle".
Do you have something special from your Grandmother, too?
