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).

piling up stitched pieces

 
something i eat quite often: mixed vegetables with quinoa
 (or millet or something like that)
here with alc free pils...
 
was ich mir wirklich oft koche, ist gemischtes Gemüse mit quinoa, hirse etc.
könnte ich jeden tag essen.

 
in case you remember the sun i stiched
in this early sunny spring...
(meanwhile quite some rain, but we needed it)
well, the sun got a companion, a "wishing star"
(speaking in Terms of quilters... an 8-point star).
while i made the sunrays in converging Colors,
i stitched the star Points in rows
 
vielleicht erinnert sich jemand an die sonne, die ich im sonnigen frühling gestickt habe
(mittlerweile hatten wir einigen regen, war für die Natur aber notwendig!).
die sonne hat inzwischen Gesellschaft bekommen: einen "wunsch-Stern"
(ich weiß nicht, ob die deutschen quilter das so übersetzen?),
der typische 8-zackige Stern, den quilter gern als muster nehmen.
die Sonnenstrahlen hatte ich mit ineinanderfließenden garnfarben gestickt, die sternzacken in reihen.

 
and some tiny scraps for further ideas,
who will surely come...
everything from repurposed clothing
 
und dann noch ein paar kleine stoffreste (alles von zerlegter alter Kleidung), für die sicher noch weiterführende Ideen kommen...

  1. Your mixed vegetables with quinoa and Pils looks delicious - yum! The "wishing star" you have created is beautiful, I love the horizonal rows you have stitched :-) . The tiny scraps of repurposed clothing look lovely, I wonder what you will do with them next. wishing you a very Happy T Day! J :-)

  2. du bist wirklich eine fleißige stickerin! der stern ist so schön geworden und passt farblich so gut zur sonnenmitte. so kleine abschnitt zu besticken ist wirklich eine gute idee, da braucht es nicht viel vorbereitung und man kann es so nebenbei machen. merk ich mir!!
    liebe grüße

  5. I wish I could get my (stick-in-the-mud) hubby to try quinoa. lol. I bought some and the bag just sits in the cabinet going to waste. I wonder how long it will keep.

    Lovely stitching and quilt work, Johanna.

    Happy T-Day! Hugs, Eileen

  6. I am a BIG fan of quinoa, but it's hard to find here. I've only found it in specialty stores, even though it fits in nicely with my vegetarian diet.

    Your new wishing star is incredible and goes so well with the sun. They are like brother and sister, so close, yet stitched differences.

    You are really going to town on the needlework. Your pieces always make me smile because I can only appreciate, never make anything similar.

    Thanks for sharing your star, your latest needlework, and your veggie quinoa and Pils with us for T this Tuesday. And thanks for your wonderful comment, too.

  12. Also, mir gefällt ja deine Methode, einfach ganz entspannt mit den gebrauchten Stoffen und ein bisschen Stickgarn irgendwas anzufangen... und wie du schon selbst sagst, die Ideen für die Weiterverwendung werden schon kommen.
    Ja, die Mahlzeit sieht ziemlich lecker aus, bin ja auch ein Fan von Pfannengerichten, und schön, dein blaues Platzdeckchen im Hintergrund zu entdecken.
    Liebe Grüße von Ulrike

  13. Your quinoa dish looks delicious. I eat quinoa often and I love it. Recently I have bought a bag of millet. But I dont know what to do with it. Do you use it like you would quinoa or couscous?
    Your stars are stunning. You are so good with your hands. Yes, im sure the ideas will come.
    Happy T Day,
    Lisca

  16. Very cool. I like the different pattern of stitching for the sun and the star. I can see so many ideas coming from the scraps you've started.

  17. Here is what I like, and what fascinates me, about your textile art - that you make these pieces just for fun, with no fixed plan of what to do with them. That seems like a really fun way of stitching. I rather like the last purple circle.
    I also like the idea of quinoa with mixed vegetables - an idea for tomorrow's lunch!

  22. Hi Johanna, I have enjoyed catching up, thank you! I admire how you re-purpose old pieces of cloth etc to make such wonderful things. Your sun-ray wishing stars are beautiful - so bright and cheerful.
    P.S. no hassle about visiting my blog - it is optional! It is wrong when these things become a pressure rather than a pleasure. Jx
