Scenes from Shanghai: When We Arrived
We arrived in Shanghai in mid September last year, when all the trees still had their leaves and created this umbrella canopy for us to walk the streets without the sun glare... as it was still very hot. A few days were hot and steamy with a bit of rain. Th...

Voila: A Boy's Bag
I made a bag, and it's made of vintage tea towels. Tea towels from the old lovely op shops of my past. My idea was to bring a few tea towels to Shanghai so I could piece them together in a lovely way for cushion covers for our couch. I still have them cut u...

Why Am I Here? Who Am I?
Now we're in Shanghai, my wonderfully talented photographer Husband (not his real job) is working. A LOT. That's why we are here, and it's only for a while, not forever. So I'm stuck taking self timer photos in my apartment while the weather is rainy. Stuck...

Voila: Playful Pom Poms
This week, a little boy was born in Shanghai and his parents are new friends of ours. So I made some pom poms to decorate his room. And to play with later. In Shanghai, there are quite a few knitting haberdasheries in certain areas. There's a shop near my h...

Scenes from Shanghai: The Old
It's the weekend now, and we're up early to go swimming. We joined a 'Health Club' which could be just a gym I guess, but Shanghai has a lot of clubs and clubhouses, and we don't want to go against the grain. SEWING TERM. Last week, I showed you some of the...

Wearing: An Urban Turban
This was our first winter in China, so we didn't know what to expect. Shanghai can have snow, maybe just once or twice during the cold season, but looks like we had a few hail or sleet type days but nothing substantial... as it was a warm winter for Shangha...

Voila: Pinky Space Explosion Skirt
Yay, I made a skirt! Haha, imagine if I returned to the sewing blog world and didn't make anything? Let's hope I can keep it going, right! Last year, I took myself on a little tour of the fabric market in Dongmen Lu (Lu is 'road' in Mandarin/Chinese and was...

How Did We Get Here?
In May 2014 my Husbie visited China for work. In July we decided he should take the new job, by September we were on the plane to Shanghai. We packed up and ordered things, and moved things and sold things. We gave things away and we put things in storage. ...
