Slowing down - Working with Fabric

The holiday season is here
I´m slowing down
it´s a need and a must.

This year have been a very stressful year for me
it´s time for some quiet days.

I´m going to catch up on my workshops

these are samplers
the beginning of little quilts
or the play with fabric

inspired by Jude Hill
I signed up a workshop over at Spirit Cloth
I love her style

little details on my first sampler

and here it is .- finished
worked on this for days
while waiting for the result of xray and biopsy
with tiny little stitches
only thing I was capable of

the start of the second one
weawed the base
and added elements

a little experiment with handdying and rust

didn´t turned out quite as I wanted.
need the practice more
and find out the secrets
but I did get some pretty marks

weawing across the moon
Jude is so good at this
I wanted to try - had too many layers
Going to give it another try

results came from hospital
everything was benign 
only need a surgery on dec. 22th

more elements

I´m not sure where this will take me.
I´m just enjoying the slow work with tiny stitches
as for now

exploring and learning

Collage work and a feature

I´ve been working a lot with Collage Art lately.

I´m currently working on pieces for my 
Craft Fair coming up in a week - I´ll show you more later.

I´ve also been working in my
'100 days of collage' book.
I came across the project over at Stephanie Levy
a collage artist from Berlin, and thought it would be a great 
challenge for me.
I haven´t done the 100 days yet, but am working slowly ahead.
I plan to fill the hole book - way more than 100 pages.

Here´s some of my pages

this is how my book looks right now

Michelle from Seaweedkisses
have been following me some time on Instagram.
She´s hosting a blog segment called
The Journals Diaries
and asked me, if she could feature me and my work in her series.
Of course she could
I´m so very honoured.
Go have a look here

Thank you SO much Michelle

Wishing you all a wonderful sunday

About Bears

Almost a month went again.
time is surely going too fast over here.

I´ve been busy making bears
for an update on my website.
This update is the last one
for this year

Here´s a few pics of 
the bears in the making

a sweet little limegreen one

and one with a wobble head.

I haven´t done many of these.
I think he turned out pretty cute

7 little bears this time

some went very fast

but there´s still a few available

last chance to get one
for a present or for you

If you would like to visit

The bears are wishing you a Happy Holiday Season

I´m wishing you all
a wonderful sunday

And then this happened

I managed to work on 
some new items for the shop

creations in collage art style

tarnished silver tray  with a fabric collage

little fabric books

some of the pages inside 

a sweet baby dress creation

lots of vintage book pages

with cool fonts
illustrations to make your own collage work
and some great book covers for large journals

and then I went down with a cold

for over a week

Thing are better
and I´m back in the studio
working on some new projects.
More about that later

Most of the new creations are sold
but a few are still in the shop

Wishing you all a beautiful day
and hope you´re all well

Vacation Sketches

I´m back from a wondertrip to the UK.
The weather was perfect - sunny and warm most of the time.

I brought my sketchbook and a watercolor travel set this time.
intending to do a lot of exercise sketchings.

I didn´t get to sketch that much, but here´s 
what I did manage

tring to sketch on location

not that easy- I tell you

this I made after a photo I took 
at Windsor Castle

and a pretty christmas ornament

even though some on IG thought it looked more
like aliens instead - lol

sketching in the airport
while waiting for the flight home


on a bear note.

The Hugglets Fair went very well.
It was so nice to meat up with collectors and
fellow bear makers.

A few bears came home with me.
A website update is coming soon.
More information about date and time
will go out through my mailing list.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend

Tina ♥♥♥
