Thistlemania





Dear friends,

I promised I would no longer start each blogpost with apologising for not posting more frequently, so I won‘t. I've been pretty busy lately. First I had but an abundance of ideas in my head but since August I am realising many of them. Too many really and all at the same time, cause I suddenly got problems coping. I got overwhelmed with day job, crafts, household, behind-the-scenes-project(s), new collections, tutorials, Etsy, admin stuff, technical issues … But I perceived what was going on and I took the appropriate actions.

Little Thistle (free pattern) – Kleine Distel (Anleitung)




Dear friends,

on Sunday I felt a bit frustrated. I had finished eight crochet Christmas hearts the night before and I wasn‘t happy about the amount of time it had taken me to get them done.


An thus I didn‘t feel like making Christmasstars, nor did I feel like making Christmasbaubles either. In fact I haven‘t got that many baubles left and therefore the colour-schemes I can turn to are rather restricted and I do not like restrictions at all.

#100DayOfCrochetOrnaments (Part II / Teil 2)






Dear friends,

unbelievable! The #100DayProject challenge is already running for 40 days. And it no longer feels weird crocheting Christmas ornaments in the middle of spring either. After all, I'm keeping busy with a few other things too. Dyeing wool for instance and crocheting thistles.

Thistle Cushion - Distelkissen






Dear friends,

true, I haven‘t been around much in blogland. I did tend to post to when I had something to show, but in fact, I do not even stick to this rule anymore either. Day job has become very demanding and I haven‘t got much energy left in the evening to do too many things. And there are a lot of things needing my attention daily, e.g. my Etsy-shop. (BTW: I‘ve now got a whole new range of Scottish / Celtic / British stitch markers and Cross Stitch Kits and still loads of ideas for crochet goodies)
