This week. #2

This week...

visited a Roman palazzo.

I received some yarn I ordered for granny squares and socks, and a yard of floral fabric that is brighter than I thought it would be. Still looking for a top pattern to use it.

I am tired already of dealing with my university library. They are so inefficient it's unbelievable, especially for how high the tuition fees are. All the books I need are in a separate warehouse and they can go and pick them up only once a week!!!!!!!! And I can only order five at a time!!!! And I need about a thousand books for my dissertation!!!!!!!!!!!! It's going to be so frustrating, I know already.

I am trying to organize my room a bit. There are crafty projects and books everywhere and although I love every single one of them, my room is only so big and I prefer clear surfaces. 

realized once again how my problems are truly minuscule and how much suffering my mother is carrying on her shoulders, all by herself.

I finished a linen tank top I started working on two months ago. I embroidered Yeats' Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven on the front, with a thread so similar to the colour of the fabric that it's almost impossible to see. Originally I thought I was going to have to assemble it by hand and that kind of put me off working it for about a month. Now I'm feeling more confident in my sewing machine skills and so it only took me a couple of hours to sew it together and hem everything! I'm so happy with how it turned out. 

started working on my first knitted sweater! I'm only a few rows in and I already know I'm going to make a mess of it. But that's ok - the important thing is to learn.

I am watching The Office again with my brother, every night after dinner. We love it so much.

I saw Infinity War at the cinema and found it incredibly boring. I only went because I love Benedict Cumberbatch so much and I will watch everything he's in until the end of time, but maaaan this was challenging. Really not my kind of thing.

  1. Love your tank top! It's perfect for summer. This reminded that i should use my sewing machine more often and sew my own clothes. Also, a very random movie recommendation; you should watch Mustang (2015), such a great movie i think you're gonna love this one! :)
