Still working - but it's near :) pics from the new Wollarium

No, it's not finished and I'm not sure if it will ever be - but some pieces are at the right place and that's a start (after approx. more than a month ...) One half will show some mid century style, the other half is colorful and full of beautiful things from the 70's. Not everything is there  - but here are some pics:

The new year starts with felting!

Each Year, I try to use the days between Christmas and New Year for creating new ideas, and this time, I managed to take a new path and started felting - which means a lot of new ideas, a lot of wool, water and soap, a lot of raw fingers and a hurting back ;) But most of all a lot of contentment and the possibility to learn something new about my favourite material - wool. I try to make my felted objects as light and soft als my knitting.
Here is one of my first photographed finished projects - a pair of wool white arm warmers.
The Etsy Germany Street Team has introduced monthly challenges now, and since I was appointed to be one of the leaders, I try to take an active part - so here's my contribution to this month's theme Winter White.

The new Wollarium is growing ...

Moving a studio is more time consuming than I ever thought it could be. And I'm still looking for the best way to use the space. It will have one corner with wool, books about knitting and textiles, home decor and fashion, in mid century style, and a working space with a lot of things from the 70's. But there are still so many cardbord-boxes to unpack - sigh .... All I can offer in the moment is a glimpse. Want to have a look? This is the - still-not-finished - working space corner.

And that's how it looks when I drive home in the evening. Well, sometimes ;)
