When knitting less is a good sign…
5. May 2020

Often, I hear form friends admiring words about the huge amount of needlework I do, how much I can knit, crochet or sew. And although I know these words are genuine prise or even a bit of envy of my possibility (free time) to follow my passion, there is a drop of sadness hidden for […]

Free sewing, knitting and crochet patterns
17. March 2020

Free sewing, knitting and crochet patterns to soothe you in times of covid-19 You all know I lost my father and a good friend last year and I now fear intensely for my mother, who is at risk because of her age. I am sure you all have loved ones (or perhaps yourself) who need […]

Sometimes things are really simple, but your over complicated thinking process leads you away from the solution.

Dear needleworkers, I will make a little writing holiday for two weeks. My husband has a bit of free time and we want to reorganize our flat, watch some films, visit museums and care for my parents. But I did not want to leave without telling you… I will frog the pink cardigan (please readers […]
