Help me rescue too wide jeans
22. March 2022

When your sewing machine is a loan (remember, mine is still in repair) and you are afraid to sew a sturdy jean fabric on it, but you want to participate in the #needleworkyourjeans contest… then you must be inventive. And that – my dear needleworkers – is what I am.My contribution to this lovely contest […]

How to unmask an alien with knitting
15. March 2022

If you are an avid watcher of science fiction or horror movies you are aware of the very real possibility of body snatchers, clones, aliens, or evil twins living in direct vicinity. Beings who are known for having dangerous attitudes regarding human body parts. Beings who may want to transform first your neighborhood, then your […]

I saw the light and this light illuminated several unfinished sweaters, cardigans and vests distributed all over the living room and my studio. Some with missing buttons, others with their yarn ends peeping through the stitches and some still in pieces waiting for me to sew them up. And know what: I have finished them […]

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 not to knit a vintage neckline
1. February 2022

I once read a science fiction short story about a huge mysterious star-mist which was encountered in vicinity of the Milky Way. There happened a lot of exploring, a lot of talking and before the mystery was solved the mist-like field vanished… and with it the intelligence of all humans. This is how I feel […]

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. A dress which accentuates the waist but without revealing any flesh. A dress […]

Sewing a fairy tale – the star-money dress
18. January 2022

Its Monday again and I am writing about art again and perhaps I will do this every Monday until the exhibition is set up in February :-DDD But do not fear this weeks projects still looks like a „normal“ dress as I do not have enough fabric to transform it into the artwork I have […]

Visible Invisible – sewing an artwork
11. January 2022

It’s the month of art for me. In February and March, I have exhibitions upcoming and in Mai also. And after you all commented so supportive last week, I today dare to again write about a project I am working on. But other than the sculpture last week its still in its beginning and it […]

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 […]
