The Forever Skirt
28. June 2022

Today’s post will be short and fast. But the topic has a loooooong history: a pleated skirt I own for more than 10 years. The skirt is a fast fashion item which was super cheap when I bought it but felt well made. It’s made from a sturdy cotton fabric which has a bit of […]

My art is a mess
17. May 2022

I woke up today drank a coffee and after a look at my to-do list pondered to get some much more potent stuff… Joking, besides that I am not learned about what to take to enhance productivity I am very anxious about everything that has more mind-altering ability than caffeine or valerian tea. But back […]

Yes, these are pair of leggings.No, they do not fit.Does this make me sad? No, because I never planned to wear them. Now after I have confused you completely, I will lift the veil of ignorance.

And that – my dear needleworkers – is what I am.My contribution to this lovely contest […]

It’s Friday (ok, while you read this its perhaps not Friday :-DDD) and I am writing a #needleworkmonday post, wow, first time for me to plan ahead. But there is a reason, its because I want to give you the promised virtual tour through our last exhibition, and I fear this will be a long […]

I love when people look sophisticated and put together. I love looking at people who wear an „outfit“ not only some garments, I love to explore other peoples style. And I really really also want to look like this. So, when I visited the fabric shop to buy more of the pink fleece for my […]

How my creative brain works
26. January 2022

Changing a dress into an artistic statement Last week I showed you a fluffy pastel coloured gathered dress, a dress which perhaps would satisfy every pre-puberty girly dream of being a princess, a dress which has no potential to offend or shock.
