Swing and spices

First experience of Restaurant Day. Have been meaning to take part since the first one, but there has always been something else. On Sunday I finally had a chance to go and experience it. I had high expectations and wasn't disappointed at all!

For mains, we went for international flavors at Värikäs Ravintola - Colourful Restaurant. The were all kinds of dishes and nibblies from all over the world. For the most part I don't know what it was, other than that it was really good. 

For dessert we went to SwingKahvila - SwingCafé. Great coffee, delictable cakes, and, best of all, a great atmosphere: Swing music, people dressed up in 1930's style outfits, dance shows and dance lessons. For a while I forgot it was 2014 in Finland.



So, here I am again. My biggest hurdle seems to be the photos. I'd like to have nice, good quality photos, but I'm too lazy to take my camera out and even more lazy to upload them on my computer. So, for the time being, you'll have to bear with my poorer quality mobilephone photos.

In autumn I started making a dress pattern at pattern course and slowly progressed into sewing it, too. Today I made the last stitches by hand. It's an Orla Kiely inspired wool dress. Those pleats were a nightmare to get into place. I have sewn and re-sewn them at least 5 times. They still don't quite match in the centre, but at least the seam is at the right spot and angle now, so I'm quite happy with it.



No promises of a comeback, but I'm thinking about it.
