Bliss and Blisters
The Meagre Monday –
2. August 2022

Sewing in yarn-ends and life of an artist I was so full of hope and optimism, I really thought I would get it done. Motivated by @jonalyn2020‘s amazing crochet skirt or @blezyn‘s granny square top, @monica-ene‘s dresses or @clearartista doll and all the other amazing wips, I picked up my stripped sweater with the clear […]

Last Monday I showed you the shiny side of crafting. I presented myself well behaved in proper clothes which I made for my garment-collection. Lovely sweaters and skirts in spring inspired colours, showcasing yellow, lilac, and green. But my dear readers, this is only one truth… Because behind the light there is darkness, and the […]

Still sewing my first garment collection
26. April 2022

It‘s needleworkmonday and there are two direction how this post can go: One will destroy my newly found confidence in finishing craft projects and reveal my jittery self, lost in the depth of the evil starteritis, staggering aimlessly between several knitted sweaters, crochet cardigans and half-finished art projects. The other whereas will paint me in […]

Sewing my first garment collection
5. April 2022

Sewing in collections… I heard this idea three years ago and I was intrigued (oh my… do I really sew three years already and still am such a beginner?). I was introduced to this concept by the lovely blog of Emily Hallman. On and of over the last year I looked at her site but […]

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 […]

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

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? […]

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 […]

The hell which is IKEA and my new handmade coat
19. October 2021

Hard work pays back, am I right? But what is with weird work? Like ironing several meters of fabric on the floor. In which way will this pay back…? Questions I asked myself last week while wandering cranky and helpless through the halls of IKEA’s underbelly. Read a long intro about my studio renovation and […]
