I'm Trine and I'm addicted to sewing and tv series and I blog at Groovy Baby and Mama.
This 30verymuchsomething girl lives with her husband and four kids in Denmark. Yes, Denmark.
Famous Danes you ask. Well, do you know the tv series 'Game of Thrones'? The charming one handed Jaime Lannister with an appetite for his own sister - he's portrayed by the Danish actor Nicolaj Coster-Waldau....and how about 'Hannibal'? Yup, the handsome actor playing the psychiatrist with an appetite for everybody is also Danish - Mads Mikkelsen. And how about the famous storyteller H. C. Andersen?! Did you know that the movie 'Frozen' was inspired by one of his fairytales? He was brillant but kind of eccentric from what I've learned. Don't know anything about his food preferences though. And then there's plain and ordinary me. 'Cause it's perfectly normal to dream sewing related stuff every night, right?! And I probably would eat fabric if I could. Okay, we're all a little weird here in Denmark.
Back to the sewing business. I've been sewing for about 7 years and I love it. I sew almost every day. My sewing space is a little corner in our livingroom - not pretty but practical. I can sew while my children play around me. My favorite things to sew and wear are dresses. In fact I never wear pants. As in never ever. I don't even think I own a real pair of pants, only leggings or leggings-style-pants with elastic waistband. So it's safe to say that you won't see any pants from my hand during this challenge. But, I promise you there will be dresses! Wearable dresses. I'm all about sewing comfortable clothes that I know I'll be wearing again and again. No fancy gowns for me - I'm just not that kind og girl.
I'm so glad, proud (and a little intimidated) to be a part of this great series and can't wait to see what beautiful outfits the other contestants and you sew-alongers will be presenting.
