I normally don’t care much about the “basic” techniques I use because… Well, actually there is no because – I “just”use them. Though they come rather natural to me, it seems like they are not so basic to others like I thought.
While I was chatting with a member of my blog about my recent tutorials, I was rather surprised to get to know that what I considered “common” knowledge was rather new to her.
Therefore I decided for the future also to take a look at my simple and basic steps and to share them from time to time. I am starting today by adding the new category “Basic” to my blog and by writing my first posting about one way to start a new thread. That’s pretty basic, isn’t it.
Yes, I know that my helpful little cat Cleo(patra) has her own fans and yes, I know that you miss the photos I posted of her during the last years.
…and I have great news for all the cat fans among you – I put all photos of Cleo on my tablet and during the next weeks and months I will go through this photo albums and find the most cutest pics for you and share them… I promise!
…the main part of the first quarter of the 14th century French pouch commission is nearly finished and I already started with the second quarter… I love the red color…
Enjoy! Continue reading

It is sunday again and I went for another walk through the beautiful palace garden of the Schönbrunn palace. It seemed to me that some of you very enjoyed the pictures I took the last time, therefore I took again some pictures during my walk for you.
There are so many ways one can take through the palace garden of Schönbrunn and every weekend I try to take another way. Again also this time – I took a completely different way.
Therefore I have some nice pictures and information especially of “The Obelisk Fountain”, the remains of the “nordöstliche Trophäengruppe” and the “Gloriette” for you this time. I hope you will enjoy my short excursion to the 18th century or well, to the remains of the 18th century…
If you like this pics you can find more photos taken at Schönbrunn in my last posting here: Impressions from Vienna – Schönbrunn Palace Garden & the oldest zoo of the World
Enjoy! Continue reading
FAQ – concerning my new blog
No, you don’t need to have a wordpress account – you can still access my blog without an account and also see a lot of my content.
Due to recent copyright issues, I have elected to protect my efforts and research by creating a more secure format.
After I took down my blog completely I was contacted by multiple viewers and asked to start blogging again and they proposed a membership system. I liked this idea of posting in a protected environment because it will prevent my content from further copyright issues as well as any further information and tutorials I am going to post in the future.
A membership on my page contributes to physical materials for examples of technique and different textiles used as example. This also allows me to add content at a faster pace.
