Everything is dead today. Barely a soul in the streets, except for my own, wandering one. In my naive hope to get in a book store of free books, I packed and set out for a walk. I should have known better. Midsummer's day, lots of beer, lots of singing and dancing, lots of closed doors in front of me. Meh, seems like I am the only one who is not in for this annual craze'n'daze. I had enough with singing in the very heart of the city and becoming a tourist attraction, thanks to the national costume (and the flower crown) I was wearing. Though I have to say it was quite enjoyable.

Now this is something fun! AND contributing to environment!
Visit the hompage and join! It's easy like a snap.
I did it!
“My blog is carbon neutral” is an initiative, originally
started in Germany by the “Make it Green” programme, that has the goal to reduce
carbon dioxide emissions. We plant a tree for your blog and thereby neutralise
your blog’s carbon footprint for the next 50 years! Everyone can make a small
contribution to the environment. Every tree counts!I discovered this at prettier world

Well, this took me forever. From the moment I stole the idea in Zara (gasp!), to the finding of the right shirt, to the right time, to yesterday when I finally managed to do it. I'm so busy lately, that I've almost forgotten how to live normally without stress and haste. I have another major exam on Friday, but I felt so limp yesterday that I decided not to study, but to finally finish what I've started in my head months ago. I know I will regret skipping so many hours of precious studying time.
But, oh well ...
This looks very simple, right, but the tricky part was the stretch fabric. It was a nightmare to get the lace on it straight. I couldn't understand whether the shirt was awry or it was me. Finally, when I got it right, I needed to stretch it on something to sew it straight. I used the ironing-board. And, eureka! ready it was! My new love.
