Dear friends,

the hubby‘s ailment completely took me us by surprise and somewhat threw us off track. And it blatantly made plain how much I depend on him, how important he is to me and my well-being and which huge part he plays in my life.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away…

Dear friends,

I do not totally agree with this saying, cause: I do eat an apple a day (from the apple tree in my parents‘ garden) and I still caught a cold. Nothing too bad, but you know how it feels…

Garden Owl Pattern - Anleitung Garteneule / Ups and Downs

Dear friends,


this week hasn’t been a happy one so far. On Monday we had to say goodbye to Kolumbus, who has been a faithful companion and important part of our family. He and his brother MacLeod (passed away two years ago) saw us through a very tumultuous part of our lives. He was the quieter one, the placid one, a real family-cat, always somewhere near, always there, but now he’s gone, after 12,5 years…

Crochet Owl Cushion for Tim – Gehäkeltes Eulenkissen für Tim

Dear friends,

actually, the pillow is for Tim‘s wife. Tim is one of my colleagues at my day job and he loves crafting with wood. When I found out a few months ago, I asked him whether he could maybe make me a swift. He said it would take a while, but he’d like to give it a try.
The week before last I got this beauty!

Sheep Key Pendant / Schlüsselanhänger Schaf


Dear friends,

I‘m getting on pretty well with the one-hour-per-day schedule. As long as ordering new supplies counts as one hour of concentrated and thorough working on a subject…

And if not, who cares? I made stitch markers, stitch marker cards, crocheted, made pictures, tidied up the studio (err 😹) and … even wrote a blogpost (well, I‘m still at it – right?).

Christmas Presents (Part II) - Weihnachtsgeschenke (Teil 2)

Dear friends,

I'm not getting on well with the Christmas presents – got sidetracked by other projects...

Luckily enough these present just needed the buttons sewn on (since two weeks though).

Christmas Presents (Part I) - Weihnachtsgeschenke (Teil 1)

Dear friends,

nearly done with the Christmas presents – at least those I wanted/could make myself and except those I haven't thought of so far. These will probably end in last-minute-nightshifts...

Luckily enough these shifts are still miles away and I'm able to show you the first load of finished presents.

These scarves I've made for my men – but only one volunteered to model...

Scrappy Flower Madness – Resteblumen Schwärmerei

Dear friends,

madness indeed … I simply do not get bored with my Scrappy Flowers. I LOVE them. No leftovers anymore though (hardly any left) but plenty of ideas to put the Scrappy Flowers into use!

Just have a look and see:

I'll keep in touch!

P.S.: Taking all of this to the fair too...


Liebe Freunde,

es ist nicht zu übersehen: Ich schwärme auch weiterhin für meine Resteblumen. Klar bin ich längst über die Resteverwertung hinaus (kaum noch Reste da...), aber ich habe noch sooo viele Ideen, wofür ich meine aberwitzigen Resteblümchen verwenden könnte!

Ein paar wollte ich schon mal zeigen:

Ich halte euch auf dem Laufenden!
