Bliss and Blisters

Trigger warning: I will speak about body shaming, domestic violence, sexism, and ageism in this post. If you are more interested in the knitting, crochet and embroidery techniques hop to the last paragraph.

My art is a mess
17. May 2022

I woke up today drank a coffee and after a look at my to-do list pondered to get some much more potent stuff… Joking, besides that I am not learned about what to take to enhance productivity I am very anxious about everything that has more mind-altering ability than caffeine or valerian tea. But back […]

Yes, these are pair of leggings.No, they do not fit.Does this make me sad? No, because I never planned to wear them. Now after I have confused you completely, I will lift the veil of ignorance. These leggings will be an artwork. Remember I am working about the topic of women getting older, about the […]

It’s Friday (ok, while you read this its perhaps not Friday :-DDD) and I am writing a #needleworkmonday post, wow, first time for me to plan ahead. But there is a reason, its because I want to give you the promised virtual tour through our last exhibition, and I fear this will be a long […]

Mondaywriters?) long time no written word from me and I directly start with this difficult question (only joking) and I am using even more brackets in writing than before. I was absent because of some […]

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). […]

For this years international women’s day during a worldwide pandemic I have chosen not to celebrate the successes of the collaborate effort of women which came before me, I have chosen to point out one part of (several) still existing injustices in women’s life: unpaid care work.I found this important to point out – this […]
