This is the last part in the series of shop news for now - after I filled up the handmade tops section as well. Somehow, tops sell much faster than skirts, but I don't seem to make them as often. Maybe it's because I usually wear a lot of band shirts, although there are many cool fabrics in my stash that would make awesome shirts too.
I'm still doing Roller Derby and as I'm more advanced now, I'm going to more training sessions. More on how this is going also in this post, but first I want to show you my new sports clothes. For Skating, I usually wear shorts and currently I only have a bought and a handmade pair. Time to make another one that is exactly how I want it to be. That's what I did on my X-mas holiday. [Advertisement - because I got the pattern for free to test]
When I signed up for the market at Tomorrow's Ghost Festival in Whitby on a short notice, I had to make some new products quickly. I haven't made arm warmers in a while, so a batch of them was my go-to choice. There are two types this time: the straight cut ones with or without cuffing and the fitted ones with thumb holes, or fingerless gloves. I picked some of my favourite fabrics that I'm sure you like too.
I haven't been in a nice place recently. It probably was a combination of a stressful summer, dealing with colds in autumn and not a lot of energy left for creative projects. My mood was declining with the light and I thought picking up a simple crochet project might help. It did. Well, a bit at least. So today I'd like to tell you the story of the red fishnet top.
On our way to Cornwall, Stonehenge was close to the way and and I wanted to see it for a long time. So we made a little detour after Bristol and camped very near. But there was so much else too look at in this area. We roughly planned a whole day to look at stone circles and other neolithic sites. As usual with my photography posts: click to enlarge.
You did't hear from me in a while. I had to take a pause from weekly blogging and also from social media. I was so busy preparing for the markets in October that I was a bit exhausted (and also a bit sad that the selling wasn't so successful as I thought it would be). But I created a lot of new things during that time that will make it into the shop bit by bit. Today, I'd like to tell you about the new zipper pouches.
This was intended to be two separate posts, but it's almost Halloween (eeek!) and I wanted to show you everything before. I did two markets in October, so I didn't have the time to do a Halloween DIY like usual. But I did a workshop with Skullduggery Ceramics earlier this month for some Halloween all-year decorations that are finished now. Today I'd like to tell you a also bit about the markets and show you the nice stuff I found.
I'm trying to do Inktober for the first time this year. Maybe you've heard of it, if not: it's doing a drawing in ink every day in October, usually with a prompt. I wasn't very inspired by the official prompt list, so I looked for others - and there are sooo many! I couldn't settle on a single one and picked a few autumn / Halloween / goth / botanical - themed ones (all mentioned below). Because this is such an international thing, this post is in English only.
So langsam wird es wirklich kälter, das merke ich vor allem wenn ich abends noch unterwegs bin. Dieses Jahr habe ich es auch etwas früher geschafft, die neuen Beinstulpen fertig zu kriegen. Sechs bunt-schwarze Paare sind es diesmal geworden. Für manche habe ich den letzten Rest der tollen Strickstoffe verbraucht. Die sind oft gerippt oder geringelt, den die Optik gefällt mir sehr, schön weich und sehr elastisch, damit sich die Beinstulpen so variabel tragen lassen.
Ich hab mich gefragt was ich euch so diese Woche präsentieren könnte und mir ist aufgefallen, daß ich so einige Projekte angefangen, aber nichts fertig bekommen habe. Aber das ist auch ok. Bei mir läuft vieles parallel, und ich hab manchmal auf dies Lust und manchmal auf das. Und dann hat meine kreativer Kopf ne neue Idee, die ich unbedingt sofort umsetzen muß... oder zumindest ausprobieren. Haute mal ein buntes Sammelsurium:
