Monthly sewing update November 2018

This was a very big month: I turned 26, climbed a mountain, renewed my visa and had a pretty bad cold for a long time. But I am well again and ready to do even more amazing things in December. Also, I discovered that I’ve been having at least one daily visitor for more than 2…

Monthly sewing update October 2018

Another month has passed, time is going so quickly! Here is an update of all the creative things I’ve done.  Not a lot this time, because I’ve been very busy with my research. First of: I won a thing! It is true! I participated in a contest on Deviantart run by the project educate group…

Monthly sewing update September

This post is very unusual in a way because it talks about all the projects I am currently working on. Normally I make a selection of the most relevant ones because I have more than ten projects running at any given moment in time. However, now I am living in Kenya I have limited access…

Monthly sewing update July 2018

This month was so busy with non-sewing related stuff! For one thing, I moved back in with my parents (very cool, I know). Also, there were more Kenya preparations to be done. Still, I managed to work on quite some projects. Quilting, sewing and embroidery is the thing that calms me down and keeps me sane…

Monthly sewing update: June 2018

It’s the last month of June already! Gosh, time is going quick. My room is turning simultaneously chaotic and empty because I am preparing to move at the end of July. Isn’t that a strange thing: chaos and more space at the same time? This does mean that I have to pack up some of…

Monthly sewing update: May 2018

Another month has passed and a lot of creativity has happened in that time! I’ve been very busy preparing fieldwork for my thesis for university, planning a wedding (not my own) and lots of other stuff. For my fieldwork, I plan to go to Kenya for four months in August. My research will be focused on…

Monthly sewing update April

I was thinking to bring the monthly update feature back at the end of every month. The idea is that I talk about all the projects I have been working on and craft related plans I have. What do you think, would you like to read that? Usually, I work on many different projects at…

Monthly sewing update: January 2018

This month I was sewing a lot of things by hand, because sadly Frau Pfaff,  my sewing machine, is in dire need for some maintenance. I took her to the shop this week, so I hope she will run smoothly and happily again soon! Luckily, I also really love hand-sewing, so missing Frau Pfaff wasn’t that…

Monthly sewing update: December 2017

Wow, this one was a long time coming. I had a little break from quilting and sewing because first my website broke down and I had to rebuild it. Also, there was a lot of school stuff and other things I had to do. But I am back now! So hide your fabric, because I…

Monthly sewing update: July 2017

Sometimes I discover really silly things I have been doing wrong sewing related. Every time that is a very nice reminder that I am still new to the craft and that I have a lot to learn. Last month, for example, I discovered that you need to clean your sewing machine to keep it running…
