Susie's Country Cottage and Garden.
Switzerland is beautiful but hey, very old fashion. No new fresh and crisp Amy Butler, Cath Kidston, Kaffe Fasett, Tilda or Heather Bailey around here. No fun colours of yarn in the shops. No fun shops at all, just boring and ugly and disorganized. It is like they don't have a sense of marketing themselves. You step in and it is messy. I mean if you visit a yarn shop in England for example, you step into a world of colours and crafty fantasy. Here - no!
It would be a dream to have something beautiful like a Crochet/Fabric/Quilt Club Café on the lake or something with a vintage sofa and fresh made muffins and the smell of a coffee brewer when you step in. Sit down, indulge yourself in colours and materials, books and patterns. Chat with a friend. Even have a sewing machine set up for the one who wants to give it a go. Meet there for crochet courses to learn the basics and meet others with the same interest. Gossip away and have a moment in a world decorated with vintage roses and fresh crisp colours, old beautiful restored furnitures and odd thrift store finds. A dream that is, wouldn't work in this country. But keep dreaming and the dream might come true. Never give up.
Today I am dreaming. Big time.
