My photobook about the year 2020

It’ s finally here! After a short wait I can hold my finished photobook in my hands. This is my 2nd book telling our experiences during one year. Although I spend a lot of time creating these books and flipping through the pages on the computer over and over again, the moment of delivery is still exciting for me. Ordered on Sunday evening and the book is already in the mailbox on Saturday morning. As […]

A year with Project Life

I welcome you to my blog and wish you a happy new year! While it has been snowing here the last few days, I have made myself comfortable with a pot of tea in front of the computer and worked on my Project Life-photobook 2020. Since I came across Becky Higgins’ Project Life style photo albums in 2016, I have been making a photo album of our experiences every year since. I created the photos […]

Project Life 2021 – Front page

I know it’s still 2020 and I should first finish the photo albums and yearbooks I’ve already started, but sometimes I just have to be spontaneous and pick up an idea as it spontaneously enters life. That’s what happened at the last workshop I took with Ali Edwards. The good Ali is for me the queen of memory keeping. She knows like no other how to question herself and her life with skilful techniques and […]

Tetris-Quilt – Part 1

After my first patchwork and quilting attempts, which resulted in my Monster Blanket, I wanted to sew another patchwork blanket. On Pinterest I finally came across a design with the popular Tetris figures and I knew immediately that this blanket was just right for my husband. Tetris is and remains one of our favourite games. It has been part of our childhood and despite its age has not lost its charm. To transform the design […]

Colourful jersey shorts against the November blues

Hard to believe, but we can now turn the calendar over to the November page. The last few weeks passed by in no time and with big steps we are (literally) stepping further into the dark season. The days are getting shorter and shorter, the weather is rainy and I felt like sewing. On top of that I had some jersey left of my orange dress and hummingbird dress, which I wanted to use cleverly. […]

Sunflowers 2020 and beloved quirks

When you see sunflowers, you are in a good mood. At least that’s how I feel. I like it when you walk past front gardens and see them standing tall as a man in the flowerbeds with all kinds of perennials growing at their feet. Not all sunflowers are the same. Seeds are offered for flowers in different shades of yellow, orange and red and there is also a good selection of plants ranging from […]

Through the lens of gratitude

I am grateful and that is why I am writing a small article about it. I am grateful for our apple tree, which has been doing “its thing” behind the house for a long time. Anything can happen, this apple tree doesn’t let itself be disturbed by (almost) anything and so far it has defied all weather conditions and has put a lot of effort into its blossoms in spring and its sour, green fruits […]

Autumnal planting

It was time to renew the planting in the large flower pot next to the entrance stairs, as my daisy shrub did not withstand the warm temperatures well and now looked very damaged. I have chosen a cheerful and colourful selection of plants that will certainly look appealing in the coming weeks and will brighten up the autumn weather with fog and wetness. During a spontaneous stroll through the nursery, the first thing I noticed […]

My Hummingbird Dress

Besides my Smilla in a cheeky orange pattern and a flowery Smilla in black and white, there is now a contribution to my last Smilla for the time being made of a colourful cotton jersey. My wardrobe is full of clothes in black or grey and I wanted to try something new that radiates the joy of life. The motto was: Courage for more colour. I also bought the fabric at Dresówka – I liked […]

Smilla Number 2

A few days ago I was able to finish my second dress. I was very happy with Pattydoo‘s pattern and I love my orange dress so much that I used the pattern Smilla a second time and sewed the dress from a fabric that I had been lying around in my collection for a long time. In contrast to the orange dress, which was sewn from a cotton jersey, this dress is made from a […]
