Last weeks ups and downs...

... came for me in a full color scale from purple to red. Some colors in-between were missing, though, mostly due to the new behavior of my personal satan - the new nickname for my sewing machine which definitely ruined some covers during the sewing process. I hope I can overcome this tricky behavior and it will turn into a nice behaving sewing machine again. But when you have a closer look at the red satin book, you will see that the front fabric also looks crumpled, this time mostly due to my lack of sewing experience concerning patches *~*  So, there is still a long way for me to go, to do things right and to make them turn out the way I originally had in mind - or at least close to this ;)

So, no light yellow and green this week except a work in progress piece combining a mellow yellow theme and my personal favorite: a line related theme.

Yes, I definitely love lines. Simple line art can express anything when used in right way as shown in a very impressive way by tape artist Chris Hosmer. All those great images are made with different tapes - which means a real limitation to line itself. Just a tiny glimpse of his work below, called "Africa 2", which I think is really great in perspective and color choice, but there is so much more to see on his blog:

Well, onto fighting the demon in my sewing machine, we will see who won the next few days...


  1. I kept on having problems with my sewing machine - at first it was blunt needle and later using cheap thread. Both easily fixable, but still... Hope your sewing machine is behaving well now.

  2. Well, I haven't really found the reason for its demonic behavior :( - all cleaned, all screws adjusted, thread okay, needle still sharp as my fingertip can verify o_O ... but still, it is behaving badly which is discouraging. Although I don't really want to put away, putting it into a *penalty corner* for a while may help?
