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)

Little Flowers – Kleine Blumen





Little flowers never worry
When the wind begins to blow.
And they never, never cry
When the rain begins to fall.“
                                                                                                    Heritage Singers



Dear friends,

I stumbled upon this song by coincidence. A bit antiquated, but I thought it fitting, cause we (at least on the Northern hemisphere) are longing for spring: no more snow, no more torrential rainfalls, no more storms…

Spring Garland with February Coaster – Frühlingsgirlande





Dear friends,

as soon as I saw the cute garland Sandra of Reflections & Nature made (see here), I knew the living room could do with one too. The living room being rather large, pastels just wouldn‘t do. So I needed strong, vibrant colours. Picking colours at random out of my stash, putting them in some kind of order, I ended up with a rainbow. Suited me fine.

I LOVE YOU




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.

A Standstill - Stillstand








Dear friends,


January 2019 is getting me nowhere.

The hubby still not being at his best, I‘ve been pretty much absent from blogging, social media postings etc. His surgery isn‘t until the 23rd and things won‘t be back to normal for the first few weeks afterwards either, so this standstill will last a bit longer still…

Happy New Year




Dear friends,

even though the end of December wasn‘t all that brilliant, 2018 hasn‘t been a bad year. It did mean lots of changes to me, especially concerning day job, which is now taking up more space and time than it did this time last year, but otherwise: I started dying wool, finished a few crochet garments, ran the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party, designed a handful of patterns, discovered the joy of making stitch markers, met a lot of people over the internet…
