sewing project


pure linen and a classic pattern - the ingredients for a perfect birthday gift !








a classy pyjama, timeless and precious, ....and no wonder the adult birthday child was very happy about!


...and along the way I had a helpful idea to get rid of my machine needle chaos:


each used needle in the matching fabric!  jeans, medium cotton, silk for the fine needles, thick elastic and thin jersey......really time saving!

endless summer - new season start

It´s high time to pay attention to my blog again after an extended summer break.
This summer was the hottest since years and it is hot still.

The last weeks I mainly was busy watering the garden, celebrating some family member birthdays, and swimming in the danube.


Now it´s time to occupy the studio again, there are lots of ideas in the sketch book.....

Mizuna Matata- in fact hakuna matata with lots of mizuna - - tatsächlich Hakuna Matata mit Zuviel Mizuna

Too much Mizuna in the garden?
Here´s is a great recipe for ca 1 kilo mizuna

Zuviel Mizuna im Garten? 
Hier ist ein Super Rezept für ca 1 Kilo Mizuna:



to blanche - blanchieren
Mix 250 gr minced meat with 2 chopped Tomatoes, some soya Sauce,salt, pepper, minced onion, 1 egg, and a cup of breadcrumbs in a bowl...

250 gr Faschiertes mit 2 Tomaten, etwas Sojasauce, Salz Pfeffer, gehackter Zwiebel, einem Ei und einer Handvoll Semmelbröseln gut vermischen,
Fill into a Banking pan in layers,

 Schichtweise in eine Form füllen,

 Some sour cream, 2 Spoonful grated parmesan, some butter flakes and then into the oven for approx. 45 minutes

etwas Sauerrahm darüber, 2 Esslöffel geriebenen Parmesan, ein paar Butterflocken und ab in den Ofen für ca 45 min.
                                 


Tastes delicious, and works with all other plentiful greens as well! (at least I think so, I didn't try...)

Schmeckt total gut und funktioniert bestimmt auch mit jedem anderen Grünzeug das man gerade im Überfluss im Garten hat!

in the garden - still

 tomatoes, all kinds

 Römersalat - romano salad, my favorite!

rucola self propagating

  strawberries blossoming

 Posthörnchen......a variety of runner beans I never planted before, bought from Arche Noah


 Bärlauch  - blossoming buckrams

and the charming  Zimbelkraut, ( Aaron´s beard) - conquering the wall

the ruler of the Jungle


She is hoary - like Yoda


Just found this site where you can convert any text to " Yoda speech" ! Funny!
