Bliss and Blisters

Last week I asked you about your preferences in regard to photo quality and you unknowingly gave me the permission to publish sh**** photos 😂😂😂 You did not know that I would use your lovely comments against you – sorry to wake you up, but I am a monster 😀 I am writing about photo […]

How I write a NeedleWorkMonday post
19. May 2020

Today I want to sew. I want to sew so badly, so that I pondered the whole morning how I can avoid writing this post. Shame on me. Usually on Monday mornings I stand up, do a bit of sports (no fear, really tiny amount, like 3 minutes) then I drink my tea and have […]

I assume everybody knows the iconic film „Groundhog Day“ where Bill Murray wakes up at six o’clock to relive the same day over and over again.

Beware: overly long post how I recreated a bought sweater with puff sleeves, entwined with literature allusions and bouts of hubris. Have you ever felt afraid that a fashion trend may end?
