Bliss and Blisters

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.

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 […]

‘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 […]

Stealth sewing a sweater for my husband
9. June 2020

Last week I told you that I was working on birthday presents for my husband but could not show you anything in fear he might see them. Today all is clear and here it is the striped sweater. I guess nearly 3 months back my husband showed me photo of a striped sweater with color […]

Sometimes things are really simple, but your over complicated thinking process leads you away from the solution. Far away, like into a deep forest were wild boars try to eat your toes and squirrels throw nuts at your head. While I still admired moss and leaves and tree-trunks, my fibre friend @muscara already found the […]
