Baltic Summer

Summers of my childhood were spent camping on the island Fehmarn (Baltic Sea), where my father had grown up and my mom had strong family ties. During the six weeks of summer vacation, we had a few lazy… Read More

Buds & Bumbles

Als die wunderbare amerikanische Handfärberin MissBabs mich letztes Jahr fragte, ob ich eine Anleitung zu ihrem Wollclub beisteuern wollte, habe ich keinen Moment gezögert – zumal ihr Wollclub unter dem Motto “Knitting Tour” stand und so eine Art Weltreise… Read More

Hitchhiker

Oh, war das schön. Ich hatte seit viereinhalb Jahren zum ersten Mal wieder ein Wochenende nur für mich, und ich war an der Ostsee (habe der Versuchung widerstanden, nach Pfaffenhofen zum Wollmeise-Laden zu fahren): Ich liebe den Ostseestrand,… Read More
