The big reveal: I sewed a Halien doll
6. July 2021

Last Monday we shared a collective experience of secrecy and mystery: the amazing @needleworkmonday challenge “Tease Us!” But not every teasing is harmless… no sometimes the teasing turns deadly serious (no fear, this is only me joking). @marblely thought she could hear the soundtrack of twilight zone and I say yes , right you are. […]

Two days ago, I had a long and introspective day in the garden. I focused on an exercise from struthless to organise or better to get the second half of 2021 on track. It was a long exercise, 11 steps with a lot of writing, thinking and a bit of painting (to keep me interested). […]

I went crazy: knitting with toilet paper
26. January 2021

The virus is flying around, zombies walk the earth and I have time to kill, so what better to do than knit with: TOILET PAPER Yes, dear reader, last week I lost my mind and exchanged the yarn with toilet paper. Not only is it still in high demand in our local supermarket, no I […]

No Barbie clothes, no finished slipover…. Do I have nothing to show you? This would be a horrible situation. So, I took heart, sat down […]

It is Monday and I do not know what to write. And its not because of lack of topics, no it is the overwhelming mass of projects :-DDD Last Monday I told you about the scholarship I got granted for an art project and since then I am frenetically running between my yarn boxes, my […]

I need your help dear needleworkes
20. October 2020

I am not sure if all of you know that I besides knitting, crocheting or sewing like crazy make art for a living. And I am extremely happy to announce that I got admitted for an art-scholarship. Now you are perhaps musing why I am addressing you on #needleworkmonday, but bear with me, there is […]

Knitting without Marie Kondo 2
19. February 2019

I think Marie Kondo silently left our flat. My guess is that she, after being happy about my attempt of tidying my box of shame (read about it here), went into our kitchen for a nice cup of tea, and there she found my tension squares. I imagine her sighing softly and then wandering of […]
