A busy week ends

Sooo, I didn't post anything these last days because this week I was pretty busy.
A friend of mine, who has moved to Ireland some time ago, was here from Tuesday to Friday and was craving for some German food, so I had to make (and eat) some. I really regret eating so much, it's only 2 weeks until the wedding of two very good friends of ours and I feel so fat, I think I'll have to take on my dress everyday to check if it still fits XD
She (getting back to my friend) also made me take her measurements because she wants me to sew her a dress. I'm a little anxious about that, because it's going to be made from jersey and everyone who sews knows rows nose close chose flows rose... sorry, I got a little carried away there XD *cough* Everyone who sews knows: Jersey is a bitch. And it's also the first time that I'm going to use a Burda pattern. We'll see how that works. I don't have the fabric yet anyways so I actually don't have to worry about that yet.
So then I showed her the new parts of Dresden that she didn't now yet and I introduced her to bubble tea ^^

Yesterday my boyfriends parents came here and stayed for the night. Basically we did the same as with my friend: Make some food, show them Dresden and introduce them to bubble tea XD
It was nice to see them but I have to say I'm really glad that we have our flat to ourselves again after this week ^^

This is probably going to support the impression that the only thing I do in life is shopping, but already some months ago I pre-ordered the new re-release of the Sailor Moon manga and after almost being forgotten it arrived yesterday:

(The pictures look so red-ish because we have red walls and the sun shining, so it's reflecting XD) It's so great *__* I even sold my old copies of Sailor Moon to make way for these new ones. The next volume is already pre-ordered ^^ It even has a wonderful coloured page:

Sailor Moon was such a big part of my childhood *__*

Oh, and I want to show you something that has kept me busy for about two weeks now:

I've rediscovered my passion for cross-stitching and now I'm making this picture of the Super Mario castle ^^ Above there's going to be written "Home Sweet Home" and then we're going to hang it up on the door. I actually wanted to make this secretly as a gift for my beloved nerd, but as always when I'm very excited about a self-made present that I'm making: I told him ;___; This aaaalways happens, I have a great idea for a present and get overexcited and tell the respective person about it -.- I need a lock for my mouth. Or I have to make things that don't take so long XD
I ran out of brown thread today, so I started with the writing. It already says "ME" above the castle XD A little too late I realised that I should've taken day-to-day-progress-pictures. Ah well, next time ^^

And finally I want to show an awesome Valentine that I got this Saturday:

Kiiiiiiiiitos! Se on erittäin mukavaa ja terveisiä Saksasta ^^ (I hope this was correct, I haven't had any Finnish lessons since June because it's holidays XD) This is so cute, I really appreciate it *__* And if you are who I think you are, I'm looking forward to new blogposts from you too ^^

So I guess that's it for today. I hope you had a nice weekend and that my German readers have a nice holiday tomorrow ^^


  1. Haha, ich habe mir angesichts meiner jüngsten Kindheitserinnerungen vorgenommen, alle Serien nochmal zu gucken - natürlich inklusive Sailor Moon :D

  2. Haha mir passiert es auch ständig, dass ich demjenigen den ich überraschen möchte vorher davon erzähle, weil ich mich so freue xD
    wow wird dasSchlosswirklich so groß, oder machst du so winzige Stiche? man erkennt gar keine Kreuzchen ^^ Das muss ich mir mal ansehen :)
    Sailor Moon muss ich auch bald mal wieder sehen *__*

  3. Aaaw, das Mario castle ist toll. *-*
    Ich will das auch so gut können. Leider waren meine ersten Versuche (ganz viele Blumen) schrecklich x___x Sticken ist wohl einfach nichts für mich...

  4. Vielen Dank^^ Bei den Overknees war es Liebe auf den ersten Blick %D Ich musste sie unbedingt haben *-*
