I am so often stuck by the beauty around me here in Hamburg and it usually happens on a sunny afternoon, as I leisurely ride my bike the very short distance home. Having my studio so close to home, often means I take the 'long way' on days like today - the ride home is too… Continue reading Snapshot : My ride home
Some days in the studio just work. Flow, you come home exhausted but feel like you've really achieved something. Finished something; found greater understanding of something; worked something out. Found a short cut - or a long cut. But you managed to arrive at that place you set out to find. Do you know what I mean? Feels… Continue reading Studio Life : Sock Haul & New Monkies
Isn't Hamburg heavenly in the Spring time! I couldn't let these photos sit on my computer one more day, without sharing the beauty that is just meters from my front door right now. This was Wednesday last week - and it was the first day this entire year I have been able to walk and… Continue reading Snapshot : Spring is here!
Can you believe it's already the middle of April? Some days and week go so quickly don't they? As it's been a couple of months, I though an April Taking Stock might be a good jumping off point this month, with some studio happenings, past and future travel plans, longer days - and even some… Continue reading Taking Stock : April 2015

It's amazing how these little… Continue reading Taking Stock : February 2015
With Christmas only a few days away now and the end of the year closing in…I thought it only fitting to list my last Taking Stock for 2014. After taking part in a Blog with Pip course, Taking Stock has become a little tradition here in the blogosphere....and like many of my fellow blogging buddies - I am hoping… Continue reading Taking Stock : December 2014
This little cutie has been in my head for a little while now (I have SO MUCH gorgeous fabric).....but there's no better reason to make you actually sit down and do it - than the arrival of a new little person in the family. My nephew came into the world recently and in no time, I… Continue reading Taggy Giraffes : What better reason?
Yesterday I was lucky enough to be one of the stall holders at the delightful Elbrausch Art Kollektiv's Sommer Design Markt. It was a fantastic day spent outside in the glorious sunshine (not something one can always rely on here in Hamburg), with a fantastic atmosphere, wonderfully creative minds and their even more creative products.… Continue reading Market : Elbrausch Sommer Design Markt
