Bloody home decoration made from yarn and clay
4. January 2022

3 days into the new year and I already start with a confession: For years I only admired needlework home decoration from afar. As prolific as I am in knitting cardigans or sewing sweaters, as lazy and unorganized I am in the big field of home decoration. I am not sure how often I admired […]

Just back from a City Tour to Leipzig, our bathroom full of stinky clothes which are soaked in museum sweat I notice we have a competition running in the Needleworkmonday community on Hive: writing about freeneedling. Perfect opportunity for me to scream in capital letters „NOOOOOOO“ because I love this idea and had no time […]

Two steps forward, one step backwards
22. June 2021

Searching for the perfect yarn I shortly pondered if I should change the proverb into “two steps backwards and one step forward”, because I got near to nothing done this week (on the crafting side).

The true power of Needlework
15. June 2021

The true power of Needlework – calming down with Lisette blouse and Mezzo cardigan Last Monday we had a much-needed conversation about support and connection in the @needleworkmonday community and the respond to @crosheille’s wonderful post was overwhelmingly positive and understanding.

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 […]

I made a crochet chicken for Easter
14. April 2020

I made a crochet chicken for Easter and it was a mistake Do you know this state of mind when the tiniest question from another person, a needle falling on the carpet, the ripping yarn or the long hair inside your shirt feels so annoying that you want to pretend to be ailed with the […]

Speaking about tension squares in crochet
31. March 2020

Speaking about tension squares and my gargantuan urbanite cardigan. It’s #needleworkmonday and I am not finished with my Urbanite Cardigan. Instead of wallowing about my snail-like speed, I will use this unfinished crochet cardigan to reflect about tension. Do you make a tension square before you start a new project? I mostly do although my […]

One shawl is not enough
4. February 2020

Last week I asked for your opinion which yarn I should use to crochet a granny square shawl and sorry, but not sorry, you were not of great help. I thought it’s always good to start a post with insulting the audience, especially when you are German and would love to use the German word […]
