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 […]

The world best knitted sock heel
14. December 2021

Did you miss me? I kind of missed myself on #needleworkmonday last week and I still have not see half of all the fabulous tiny outfit entries of our contest. But as so often I had a lot of headaches which held me back (do you hear this, stupid migraines, go away!) and when the […]

How to sew in yarn-ends and “wintering”
30. November 2021

This post is about sewing in yarn-ends in knitting, but because I rant about a lot of other things beforehand, you will only notice this at the last paragraphs 😀 Last week I wrote about my Fibre mood Leona addiction. I told you that I already made two of these comfy sweaters and that I […]

Sewing the Leona sweater
23. November 2021

Hello Fibre Mood, will you marry me?I am obsessed with a pattern from the Belgian sewing magazine Fibre Mood… again. Since the first publication until now I loved every issue. The magazine has approx 12 pattern per issue and at least half of them cater perfectly to my taste. What does this say about me? […]

How negative thoughts destroy creativity
16. November 2021

Word of warning: this is a post about me sometimes having pretty negative thoughts while working creatively. If you need something lighter today, please skip this post. There is a lot of darkness inside of me. You read my (hopefully) funny text, see me laugh during our #needleworkmonday video chats, but this is only the […]

Be a Star Trek Nerd with Fibre Mood Clemence Shirt
9. November 2021

‘No good deed goes unpunished’ Goerdi once said to a Romulan officer. And he was so right. For three years now you, dear needlworkmondyers, have been reading my posts, commenting, and liking, supporting my antics and being your altogether wonderful self. But now the time of revelation has come, and I will use my superior […]

The fabric dyeing which ended in jam making
26. October 2021

Last week I (nearly) finished sewing a coat dress with a Peter Pan collar. And as it seems to be my burden it turned out lovely…. And the burden being in this case that I made it from very cheap strangely coloured fabric. I somehow see a pattern here. When I use fabric, I love […]
