Bliss and Blisters

I did it again or is it already again again? Sewing something that doesn’t fit. You my dearest readers will know this better than me, as I suppress every thought about my craft-fails – a very helpful method to stay motivated with sewing. I highly recommend it :-DDD I have this lovely Japanese sewing book […]

repairing my activewear
2. April 2019

The intro: some of you know I have migraines. I have them often, very often and I am always on the search for preventive measures which do not involve medication with side-effects even more gruesome than the migraine. One helpful action is action (sorry, for the only mildly funny pun). Precisely endurance training like jogging, […]

The dark side of the sweater – an experiment
12. March 2019

It did not work out. In the end I had a sweater I will not make again. I lost my precious fabric to the realm of destruction. Above my sewing machine dark clouds are gathering. Far away I can hear thunder rumbling and while looking down on the seems of my sweater I notice small […]

The summer slump sewing post
8. August 2018

It is soooooo hot here! I mentioned it before in about 100 comments on my steemit blog … and I repeat: it is super and unnaturally hot. Tomorrow we await 39 degrees. This temperature is completely new to me. I sweat on my hands while knitting – honestly :-DDD But the weather will not stop […]
