A big hello to you all and I missed you so much. I was one week in Frankfurt and as we came back we had a funny water problem in the bathroom. So funny that I am only now back to writing for #needleworkmonday. The water of shower and basin did not stop to run. […]

11. September 2018

Do you like to buy or make birthday presents? I love this… If the job of a ‘present-buyer’ would exist, it should be mine (if you also want it, no problem, I would share :-D) Naturally there are some basic parameters which should be fulfilled, like me not being broke and having a bit of […]

It’s an immediate feedback. But because there is more than me and my brush – namely the water, I think watercolour […]

The am I naked or wearing a shirt shirt
