social media

i have my reasons why i´m NOT at facebook or twitter. and if you pin my work on pinterest, please make sure to link it back to me by taking the button on my side: that will bring you to my board with all my art-links. thanks for respecting that.

i consider my blog to be my "artistic diary" - so i can recap what i made and which influences i got (exhibitions etc).

currently i try to publish frequently once in a week (mondays/tuesdays mostly)

People with a Google+ account: please leave a direct blog link, otherwise i can´t visit you.

too hot... / zu heiß...


not outside (we have rain and cold temperatures for a week now), but probably i washed this pullover too hot!! i wanted to felt it (knitted 20 years ago, not fitting any longer;) and took the highest temperature. it shrunk extremely (and is more grey than the photo pretends) and is thick!!! i don´t think i can cut it with scissors and bring a needle through it... (i had intended to sew a pincushion in shape of a bird...). any suggestions???

nicht draußen (da ist es seit einer woche kalt und regnerisch), aber wahrscheinlich zu heiß gewaschen habe ich diesen pulli... ich wollte ihn filzen (hatte ihn vor 20 jahren ca. gestrickt und er passte nun nicht mehr;) --- hab natürlich gleich die höchsttemperatur genommen und er ist brutal geschrumpft (außerdem noch viel grauer geworden, als man nach dem bild vermuten könnte). so, und jetzt komm ich wahrscheinlich weder mit faden noch mit schere da durch... (wollte eigentlich ein großes nadelkissen in vogelform draus machen, ob das jetzt noch was wird?) vorschläge???

  1. Hi Dear
    Oh how fun have done that on purpose actually with some!! what about a purse??? that would look good and then needle felt it with some flowers etc!!!?? or a little pouch like the ones I have been doing only a bit larger!! Fiber Trends has a pattern and that's what i have been using (modified for a smaller pouch though!!) anyway let me know what you do would love to see!
