Nearly 60 years old, married, shortly before retirement. Beside reading books I love sewing, stitching, creating something with paper and combining all materials by different methods. I live in Frankfurt am Main in Germany.
When the two children were kids I sewed the most of their clothes in my own 'boutique', which was a small table with my sewing machine, only. This I changed into decorations, quilts, boxes, wallhangings....
Twice I gained prizes in competitons for stitching projects (handstitched thread painted pictures), two of my machine sewn pictures are shown in several exebitions (Switzerland and Germany), one quilt was shown during the Main-Quilt Festival 2009 in Aschaffenburg/Germany.
I get inspirations from watching the surronundings and its details, magazines (I love QA!), experimenting with materials and tools, admirering and analysing the works on exebitions.
I'm member of the German Embroidering Guild.
