on vacation

we were to Pont Aven. While I didn´t like the many "Gaugin-style" galleries,
I really liked to watch out for old doors and nice signs.

lost patterns

family visit: the patterns are from inside my grandma´s house.
I took some pics of every room before I closed the door behind
me for the very last time.
The house has found a new owner.

Thank you for all your reading recommendations in the last post!

[ model making of a dream guardian with plastiline]

I´m preparing for vacation, beginning tomorrow.

First spending some days at my family and afterwards heading to France.

Hoping for nice weather, but you never know and so I´m packing a
box of craft supplies, including some Plastiline, which I find very relaxing to play with

Still need to get some books. What are you currently reading? Any tip?

I will be back beginning of July.

Have a good time, until we meet again!

[I´m thinking of taking my notebook with me, I should, I should not, I should, I should not.... :) we´ll see]

design your own fabric
has gone life today

Like Spoonflower in the USA this German company prints your own fabric designs.

That´s pretty cool, don´t you think?

I was one of the happy testers of the site and got my samples already. They are amazing!

You can actually choose from 4 fabric types: cotton [left fabric], cotton satin, jersey [right fabric]

and my favorite upholstery fabric [pic below]

Colors and fabrics are Oeko Tex Standard 100 certified.

You can upload your own designs and also choose from some already available patterns

Here´s a great tutorial how to make your own patterns

Currently 3 of my designs [horses, horses with pink heart and garland]
are available too and I think there will be more soon.
