Beautiful mess

Beautiful mess

From today’s photo shoot – this is what I would call a “beautiful mess”.

My friend and co-author Kristin and I got together to take photo shoot for the book launch in this morning.

I set up the table and even ironed the table cover which I do once in a blue moon!!

I boiled the kettle and my Chloe brought some Korean chocolate sweets from the fridge.

One hour flew so fast while I was taking pretty good amount of same pictures and obviously, the tea (it was Blueberry Merlot tea from Tea Forte) got cold and we took a quick sip.

And we didn’t even have time to sit down and sew together in real life.








Kristin is taking a snapshot for her Instagram post.

She offered me to take picture of me but I didn’t want to show up in my sweat shirts. 🙁



As we all do, I always wish for a quietly sewing day with my sewing friend and make a “beautiful mess”.
