My handbag is always a mess. As I told you two days ago my bag has only one inner pocket so it's hard to sort my stuff inside the bag.
The charger and my headphones where always a mess with tons of little knots.
It always took my ages to tackle the mess.
I was in need for a little bag to store the chargere and the headphones so I drafted a quick pattern for a small bag.
The good thing in small projects you can use tiny scraps and left over binding.
This time I used the some mushroom scraps which were a gift from Katha and left over binding from my vintage table runner.
It'a a quick and easy quilt project and the best thing no cable tangle in my bag anymore.

I wanted to blog about it already last week but the side effects from the second chemo kept me busy (and the picknick quilt I was working on...but more about that later that week).
My vacation started on the 3th june when mr. artistic drove all the way to Dresden to meet up with my dad. He just came back from my cousins wedding (I didn't go because my 90 years old grandpa doesn't know about my health and my dad said it's better not seeing him without any hair) and it was is birthday as well.
My sis dropped him off at a restaurant and mr. artistic and I picked him up and we went to our holiday home.
Our holiday home is the old family house of a friend of my dad. Bärbel is always so kind to let us stay for free in a lovely home every summer.
It's an awesome little house and Bärbel and her boys did a great job renovating it.
It has a lovely little garden with apple trees and the best thing it's only a 30 minutes tram ride to the great center of Dresden.
Sadly we had only 4 days since my second chemo was sheduled for friday but we did the best to enjoy every day we had. The weather wasn't that great and mostly it was cold and rainy.
Gladly I know Dresden very well since my granbdparents live just around the corner in a small village. I used to spent a week each summer with them when I was younger so we went several times to Dresden as well.
Mr. artistic visted Dresden the first time so it was a pitty that the sun wasn't shining that much.
My dad and I tryed to squeeze as much as we could in the few days we had to show my hubby the loveliest places in Dresden. We went to the museum to see to visit the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister.
Of course there was some shopping in my fave area in Dresden (Neustadt) as well.
Dresden Neustadt is a district where lots of young people live. It's full of small little shops and there lots of lovely little places to sit down and have a coffee.
Durring our stay in Dresden we met with Dieter an old school friend of my dad. Dieter and my dad came up with the idea to hike a little bit near our holiday home.
We went to visit an old mill and had a beer (of course because we are german ^____^).
It was raining like crazy when we arrived at the old mill but we didn't care and enjoyed our good cold beer.

I was bored after chemo and kept looking at all those pretty carved Blythe. So I took my poor FBL and kept working. The result is Ok. There will be some small changes and I need to add make up. My hardest part ist as always to paint the lips. Any advices how to paint very simple lips on carved mouths. I never had any problems with coloring on normal Blythe lips.

Mr. artistic came back yesterday evening from our roadtrip to Dresden. We had an awesome timr but the weather wasn't that great at all. Mostly it was rainy and sky was grey. But more about that later.
