Bliss and Blisters
Dearing to wear Unfinished – a crochet shawl
24. November 2020

Its Monday morning and after the fabulous Barbie contest I am still in a glow about all the creativity and skill in this community. But what’s going on with me? No Barbie clothes, no finished slipover…. Do I have nothing to show you? This would be a horrible situation. So, I took heart, sat down […]

Procrastination – sewing a cute Peter Pan sweater
17. November 2020

After last weeks total miss because of migraines, I woke up this weekend with sweat on my face fearing I will not be in time with my art project (I know, me worrying about something is not new to you, dear needleworkers). I rolled out the huge canvas I bought and started to work… for […]

Knitting with hot needles – ahem headaches
3. November 2020

In German there is this saying, “knitted with hot needles” (mit heißen Nadeln gestrickt) which means you did a project hasted and sloppy. And this is what I did with my knitted slipover.

My second box of shame
13. October 2020

It’s this time of the year, the one moment of clarity, my awakening to the light, the epiphany of introspection… were I notice that I have roughly a million wip’s spread out through our flat. There are these two (yes, two) boxes of shame in our living room. And maybe the content of these boxes […]

The wallhangings of Hellen Nabukenya
6. October 2020

Last week I presented you two fibre artist and their colourful works I per chance got to know on my short visit of Erfurt. And I promised you a second part with yet an even cooler artists: Hellen Nabukenya. Dear needleworkers grab all your yarnends, fabric scraps and tiny threads, after reading about Hellen Nabukenya […]

How to transform an ill fitting dress
15. September 2020

Every Monday I tell myself, today I will only write a short update on my projects. And then I end with taking excessively photos and writing my fingers of, this Monday is no exception.
