i have my reasons why i´m NOT at facebook or twitter. andif you pin my work on pinterest, please make sure to link it back to me by taking the button on my side: that will bring you to my board with all my art-links. thanks for respecting that.
i consider my blog to be my "artistic diary" - so i can recap what i made and which influences i got (exhibitions etc).
currently i try to publish frequentlyonce in a week (mondays/tuesdays mostly)
People with a Google+ account: please leave a direct blog link, otherwise i can´t visit you.
i started going through old photos in boxes on the attic (oh my!! some back from Student times... and i really want to get them sorted well, after years of only planning this). i didn´t think this would become such a big affair...
but now i´m into it and want to make it through,
then i realized i had my Blogging anniversary on sunday:
11 years of making wonderful Connections and
friendships all over the planet!
and though i always say i would write here even it was for me only
(as kind of an artistic diary),
i truly appreciate all the comments of you,
my valued Readers!! ♥♥♥
until today i think a Connection via Blogging is another one like via Facebook etc.
time for Little prizes ...
so i made three collages ca 5,5 Inch square = 14 cm):
(in real the Background is a bit more into orange,
onion Skin dyed glass wipes,
which i stabilized with freezer paper for stamping and stitching)
if you would like to win one of them,
just leave a comment (you can specify your favorite,
but i can´t give you a guarantee, of course...)
i will draw the winner on sunday, march 26th.
on thursday we had a fabulous spring day,
and as in the evening our monthly stampers´ Meeting was scheduled
i took the Train to munich a few hours earlier.
i spent 3 hours in the eastern cemetery of munich.
it is the largest one in munich and holds almost 35 thousand graves.
so i only visited a part of it.
due to lack of time i won´t Show pics of the Stones and statues in this post, hopefully next week.
among the graves oodles of crocuses,
and i always enjoy the squirrels there.
this one seemed to teach me: "life is fleeting";)
i couldn´t catch it...
... until a man sat down on a bench and offered him a peanut;)
later i visited MUCA, the first Museum of urban and contemporary art in Germany.
more about this in another post, too.
just a Little teaser for now:
with the exception of one rainy day (last tuesday)
we had wonderful spring weather.
so time to spend outside
(and no time found for the muster-mittwoch challenge...)
it was chilly in the Mornings, but then lots of sun
and we even could sit on the terrace to have cappuccino and cake.
here a yummy Lemon tarte one of my friends had baked:
the birds are in full Action,
so my medieval embroideries are influenced by this:
obviously the cats also have their scuffles, as sunday morning timmy came home refusing to strain one of his paws. he only hobbled on three legs and we were afraid one could be broken.
so we went to the emergency consultation hour at our vet on sunday afternoon.
but the vet calmed us. she found bite traces (we had not seen) at his shoulder, so obviously he only took a relieving posture to avoid pain. antibiotics and a painkiller injection will hopefully do their work.
the sun already put me in the mood for sun dyeing, but that definitely is too early and too cold.
but i can hardly wait for the day i can start again.
so instead i prepared some tea bags and onion Skin dyed some glasses-cleaning papers for further use.
