I don’t talk about it much here on the blog, but even when I’m not sewing, I am constantly making something. Looking around my room the other day, I suddenly realized how many of my things are either handmade or altered in some way. Apart from my wardrobe and handmade furniture, my room is full of things that resulted from small projects: painted IKEA shelves, leather drawer handles, reupholstered chairs, […]
Last year, I have been paying regular visits to an open wood workshop in my city. The concept is pretty cool: You can come by on certain days of the week and – for a small fee – use the work benches, woodworking machinery and tools there.

A few months ago, I moved into a new apartment. After lots of small studios and shared flats, the new place feels like a giant palace. I mean: There’s a separate bedroom. An entire room just for sleeping and getting dressed.
