Hi Steemians and Followers,
I am back!
6 months ago I posted the last article. Actually, the break should only be a few weeks, but unfortunately, it became months.
I moved into another apartment and I had to renovate a lot in my new and old apartment. A longer illness followed.
But now I'm back with new ideas and posts. For the people who do not know me yet, I introduce myself first.
I am a student of psychology and a passionate seamstress. I love knitting, crocheting, embroidering and fashion design.
During my childhood and adolescence I have embroidered a lot, mainly big cross-stitch pictures. I started with embroidery when I was 5 years old. At some point, my walls were full of pictures and I thought about how I can use my love for handicraft differently. I thought clothes would be a great alternative. Then I learned to knit and crochet.
I started sewing, because I like individual, unusual clothes and the clothes in the shops do not meet my taste. Because of overweight most of the clothes did not suit well. Therefore, I taught myself patternmaking and fashion design.
Needlework has a long tradition in my family. My great-grandmother already was a professional embroiderer. Today this profession is extremly rare, as most embroidery is made by machines in our modern times. The passion for Crafts was carried on by my grandmother and mother, and of course myself. With the help of my mother and grandmother, books, classes, self-study and much practice, I learned many handicraft techniques that I have been exercising for decades with much passion.
In terms of crafts and art I see myself as an eternal student, as I like to learn new techniques and improve my skills again and again.
I would like to share my passion on my Steemit blog. I would be very happy if you join me and follow my blog.
Not only creative hobbies are my topics. I will also write about psychology and my life as a student. In addition, I will talk about my urban gardening project.
