after those busy months
time is slowing down in the workshop
last year ended on such a happy note
this one started a bit painful - for me
a full blown return of the back pain
(there´s soon an end to that since my magician physiotherapist returned from his holiday)
in combination with an unsettling stomach ache
hopefully someone finds out soon where it´s coming from 
and what can be done about it
this kind of sucks the energy right out of me
and all i want to do is come up with ideas and plans
since i really like the fresh feeling of a brand new year
since a lot of you enjoyed E´s performance
i will ask her to do one every time she comes visiting
right now she´s a bit stressed out writing and painting her thesis
but it´s going to be all right
she´s not only a fun performer but also an excellent writer
her first publication being on the beauty of smallness
she forgot the very small elephant i made her for Christmas
to a - from now on - better new year
an interesting  BASIL CAKE
super constructed jewellery by UNCOMMON MATTERS
knitted these MITTENS from WIKSTEN already twice
love the pattern and the colours of this SCARF
(in case someone from Germany is about to place a TOAST order please let me know)
