Virtual meet - Hi to Beata!

Here's Beata, from Apeldoorn in The Netherlands.  She was my 'swap' partner for the International Craft Swap organised by Rachel at House of Pinheiro.  As well as making beautifully tailored clothes as Red Point Tailor, Beata makes exquisite jewellery from fused glass.  Take a look at her blog to see it - she has an online shop too.

Would you like to take part in a 'virtual 'meet this weekend? 
It sounds fun ... it would be fun to 'meet' other bloggers who sew - even virtually .
What do you like to eat/drink? - I am trying to eat healthy, all that's necessary in small portions.  I have an allergy to milk and milk products and chocolate.  So I am trying to avoid it.
What would you have worn to the meet up - something you've made yourself?  I would definitely wear something I have made - a little depending on the weather and the distance I would have to travel.  I love to wear dresses and jackets so probably this would be the choice.  Unless I crack a pants pattern - then I could wear self-made pants.
What have you bought recently - pattern/fabric?  As you can see on my blog - recently I have bought a few fabrics in very sunny colours.
What's your next project?  At this stage, on the table are trousers.  Then a Chanel-like jacket (I will try) and a few dresses - in between try-out garments to test patterns.
Would you like to swap some fabric or a pattern?  I have some fabric that I am not so sure I would use so of course!  I could as well swap few patterns.
Send me a photo of you enjoying a drink/meal wearing one of your makes.  Attached there is a photo taken during a birthday party of one of my colleagues - I am wearing a dress I have made based on the Vogue pattern 1183.
Thanks for invitation and all the best, Beata.

Great to see you Beata and hope you've 'met' some more sewists that you didn't already know about.
