The First Textile Pieces

remember the cloth pieces I prepared
before my break?

I showed you the beginning here
Now I have them finished
The first ones

I sewed on the word 'Elements' on this piece
my second piece ever
I worked with different tecniques on this
learned something about the thickness of layers
some parts were really hard to stitch through
I like it though

and this one
with circles on it
that turned out like jellyfish and shells

the beginning of new little pieces

left piece finished with a Jellyfish

I´ve also been working on a new shop.
This is for my collages and textile art

This shop is not to replace my Etsy Shop
It´s an experiment
We´ll see if it will work out.

Wishing you all a beautiful weekend

A break too long and an Announcement

this break turned out to be
much longer than expected

december went with waiting
and a cancelled surgery.
a new shedule and little more waiting.

finally a surgery on January 5th
and then a few weeks of recovery.

things are better
I´m almost back to my good old self.
Just need the last check in a week.

I´m sure everything will be fine 
I´m almost ready to start to new year


and now to the announcement

A new Year have begun and that means
changings in the studio.

After designing and selling my handmade bears for 13 years
it´s time for me to close down my bearmaking business.

As some of you know, I also work with Collage and Textile Art, 
and my desire to develope and work with that
have grown this past year. 
And as I still work parttime in a dayjob,
I no longer have the requered 
time to keep up with the bear making.

bears through the years

I have enjoyed working with those little souls during those 13 years and have
so many happy memories from that.
 I will treasure those for always.

One little bear is left on my wesite
go here to have a look
and lots of mohair, mini bear fabric and suppliers
have been listed here


Will be back soon 
to share what´s going on in the studio

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend
