I have to
Write a checklist for my YouTube video recordings. Recently I managed to record two sewing vlogs before I realized I had plugged in the microphone in the headphone slot so there were no proper sound 🙁 That wouldn’t have happen if Anja and I had a checklist before we pressed record. So many things to keep track of when making videos!
I’m impressed by
People’s sewing skills, especially when it comes to things like welt pockets and jacket lapels.

I long for
More time to peruse my interests, namely creative stuff, travels and exercise. I already long for the day I retire where I can plan my days according to what I love the most. Only 20+ years to go. Oh well.
I’m inspired by
Lying in bed late at night looking at the designer garments on Net-A-Porter and similar sites and fashion magazines. I draft a lot of my own patterns so I look more to RTW than pattern companies for inspiration. But I always feel inspired when browsing through issues of Burdastyle, I love their fashion magazine format!
I dream of
I have just came out from a stressful spell, switching job and such, so for a while I was waking up at night thinking about job related stuff. That sucks. During transitional times my stress leves always rise and I try to remedy that with exercise, rest and fun activities and knowing that this too will pass. Luckily I feel less stressed now and I really enjoy my new job.
Video checklists templates, lol (see above).
I’m excited for
