Where has the time gone? Just a moment ago it was Christmas and New Year! Actually, I wanted to go out for photos and make beautiful photos for Easter, but somehow I’m still not 100% fit after Corona. Therefore, I took photos with my phone the day before yesterday after my shopping.
My news at the moment is that my fabric store is no more. I am extremely sad about that. Good news is that our sewing group including the seamstress have found a new way to sew together on Saturdays. Unfortunately the course costs twice as much as before. 😦 Let’s see how we will like it in the new store. Next week Saturday the new course should start. Of course I have again lots of ideas what I could sew and where I do not know how I could do it myself.
Yes, I know, I have not been in touch for ages.
Has anything changed for me this year? Not much, except that one colleague has quit and the rest who still work in the lab are under extreme stress. Especially because everyone who had Corona also had to stay at home for 7 days, regardless of whether they had symptoms or not.
So it comes that I have less energy after work to play or to do my hobby sewing.
Since a few weeks we finally have a new employee. Sure, he has to be trained first, but after that it should get easier. Especially since we no longer have to stay at home when we have Corona without symptoms. A mask that has to be worn then should protect the other colleagues.
Did I sew again? Yes, some things. I’ll have to take pictures of them so I can show them here.
But above all a wonderful Christmas to all and Happy New Year
The first Easter I celebrate without friends. But safety first. I don’t want to be infected with the virus or vice versa.
I hope that these bad days are soon over.
So despite everything, have a nice Easter. Stay healthy.
I took these photos in the park.
I know that there are areas where you are not allowed to leave the house to go to the park or somewhere else.
For all those who could not buy Easter cards or why ever, if you like one or the other photo, you are welcome to use it

In times like the lockdown all over the world, there are still beautiful things out there.
Be it the video from Italy, which shows “we stick together. We care and take care of others” or video church services for all those who have to stay at home or also the offers to old people to go shopping for them, to chat with them via Skype so that they are not so lonely.
It shows again and again that even in bad times humanity counts, how important it is for each other. That fear must not take that away from us!
I can’t help much, but I can show that there is a new beginning out there. Everywhere, even on my way to the supermarket, the signs of spring appear.
With my pictures I hope to bring nature into the home of those who cannot go outside
Okay, according to the calendar, it’s winter. But while walking in the park at the weekend I already found the first flowers.
It was so cold outside!
Especially because I had forgotten my gloves at home and was wearing the wrong shoes. I should have looked at the thermometer before I went out, but the whole week before it was so warm outside that I didn’t even think about it.
I am actually too old for such stupid mistakes 😀
As someone with many plant allergies and asthma, I cannot have flowers or plants at home.
But when I find them in nature, I can enjoy them and find them beautiful.
I’m always so happy when I discover the first flowers. There are not many yet, but still a sign that it may not be long before spring comes.
Here the ONLY bush in the whole park that already had blossoms.
A few more hours or maybe days with sunshine and the daffodils are in full bloom
Here you can see how cold it was that weekend. Behind the ducks you can see that there is a layer of ice on the water.
Last year I made an Advent calendar, which I still like very much.
For this year I had planned to do the same, but unfortunately I remembered too late to see how to do it practically with Photoshop. Above all I did not consider how time-consuming my idea was. Too bad.
I won’t write what I wanted to do now (maybe I’ll like the idea for next year), but for next time I have to remember to to start earlier.
The last two weeks I was in bed with severe flu. Therefore I could not go shopping or decorate my apartment properly. Too bad, because I didn’t have time to take care of it before. I didn’t even get a tree this year. Didn’t feel good enough to go outside.
But look what the mail brought in yesterday ❤ ❤ ❤
Normally I would have hung the ornaments on the tree, but so I just photographed it as if it was a breakfast table.
The plate is only a little bit bigger than 2 inch. This “doll’s dishes” looks exactly like my real Christmas dishes. Isn’t it cute?
My challenge: One year - I will not buy clothes - I will upcycle to make what I need - everything from underwear to evening wear! Join me for tips, exclusive BrawHem makes, and inevitably some hilarious disasters...
