I have enjoyed the rest of my travels a lot, although it would have been lovely had my boyfriend been able to come with me. As it was, he needed to get back home and I travelled Singapore, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Phuket for 2 weeks. It was my first time in Asia, and I loved the cultural differences, even though the hustle bustle of the big cities made me a bit tired... Lucky I got to have a beach holiday for the last 5 days! Now I'm nicely tanned, even though the weak winter sun has already paled my complexion... ;)
I found some lovely pale yellow silk for a slip in Singapore and some black Thai silk for a half slip in Phuket. I also wandered Hong Kong's garment district and scored lots of lovely trims and ribbons and some nice blue border print as well as some denim. What I liked best, though, were the Japanese 100Yen-Shops, were I got cute ribbons and cloth-covered-button-kits! I could have spent thousands of Yen there, alas, I had to think of my back (and the airline's baggage allowance...). Also, I bought the cutest hat in Tokyo! I think I may have to put together a post with all the lovely things I bought during my travels... :)
Now without further ado, some more visual impressions from my journey, before I let you get on with daily life and sewing pretty things... :)
Singapore (and thanks to Adey from The Sew Convert for fabric buying and sight seeing tips!):
Phuket Town and Kata Beach - look at that cute little open sewing studio!
