The art of being alone

I had the fabric for this top cut out and ready to go for quite a while, but only came around to sewing it on a day this August when I was completely, blissfully alone. I know I sound like an asshole to some people when I say that I like being alone so let…

August Review

August 2022 saw my return to this blog, after my efforts in this area had been sporadic to say the least for months. I did some knitting, I did some sewing, and then I documented the results for all the internet to see! Why yes, I’m patting myself on the shoulder here. More importantly, it’s…

Body-positivity, or: putting yourself out there

I wish I were super body-positive all the time. (Don’t we all?) I guess I’d take body-content as well, or try to shoot for body-appreciative at least. It has taken me so far in life after all! I’m at the point where I take care of it by trying to eat healthy and exercise regularly,…

I actually quite like the light wooden lattices on its walls, and think it’s a fitting piece of…

I did however finish two sewing projects. I finished the Lamour dress in time for the Rock’n’Roll Weekender in Walldorf, and proudly wore it. Sadly, I…

This year in crafting

I haven’t done a lot of knitting and sewing in 2018. This was mostly because we’d just moved into our apartment together. We spent a lot of time furnishing our apartment and figuring out our life in a two person and one cat household. I had health problems limiting my ability to do many things…

Retro (Burda 02/2018 No. 120)

I haven’t really used my sewing machine ever since moving here except for some alterations and a pillow case. The only room large enough for sewing is our living room, which I hate cluttering up with my sewing supplies because this is where we spent most of our time. Then there’s the matter of the incredibly…
