Hello from Berlin! I’m here for Blythecon EU which took place today. It was a wonderfully organised event, by far the best yet! The venue was gorgeous, spacious and airy with skylights that let plenty of natural light in! I was a bit of a ghost of myself as I hadn’t slept for three consecutive nights but I had a nice selection of outfits to offer. As always it was wonderful to meet dolly people I’ve known online, especially long time customers! Thank you to everyone that came to say hi!
Unfortunately I did a major FAIL and brought my little compact camera without a memory card in it haha. So I took this not so great photo with my iPod.
And some better ones with Linda’s iPhone.
Finally these photos describe my state perfectly haha!
At the airport with Linda.
I haven’t been in Berlin in over 6 years, so I’m staying a few more days to rediscover the city and rest a little.
I hurt my right arm pretty badly about a month ago. Repeated strain caused the muscles to give in, practically paralysing it for a few days and from then on recovery has been worryingly slow. This affected my sewing productivity ( never the quality! :D ) and because I could’t use my hand very well I got a million cuts and burns while cooking! So really, I think a few days away from the sewing machine might do it good.
More of my Berlin adventures soon! I’d better get some sleep now and hit the flea markets tomorrow – thought I think I hear an approaching thunderstorm!!!
