New Project!

Thank you for your input on the previous post. I value your opinion greatly.

So. While I am a-thinking about how and where, I want to share recent new project. Yup! Patch It Up—this crafter is cuttin'em squares and sewin'em back together!
The four top fabrics are from Garn-iture – a small yarn-barn/fabric store on Vesterbrogade in Copenhagen. A true gem.
Btw—do you know Frankie? It's a great mag with enough graphic yum-yum to make me pay a small fortune, but it was a great read too (which I consider quite the bonus ) -- I just fell for the layout! Happens all the time. Other bonus reads I bought for the covers: Jonathan Safran Foer, Philip Pullman and Tea Obreht. And we all know how those went. Mucho mucho Bonus.

Gotta go cut some squares now.

Listening to: Rebekka Karijord
Savouring the art of: Andrea D'Aquino
Looking forward to: meeting 12 Collage Artist next Saturday

Of Summer, and Thoughts on blogging

A perfect Summer vacation! No less. I hope your Summer has been just as wonderful, and that you've had time to enjoy time and loved ones.
I haven't been posting much lately, not because I didn't find the time, but because I've been thinking ... Wondering—what it is that I'm doing here. I would like to start somewhere else:

We had a booth at the local flee market this Summer, and while we were selling our old stuff there, it struck me that the flee marked–»feel« had changed as opposed to previous years. Years ago, flee markets were special, you could make rare finds and bargains, but today, flee markets are everywhere, every weekend, Summer and Winter, good finds are rarer (and there are clothes everywhere).
Perhaps there are more sellers than buyers! 

I've been wondering if the same goes for blogging? If maybe, in the explosion of numbers of bloggers over the last couple of years, there are now more posters than readers? 
If I myself, have turned into more of a poster than a reader? (To be honest, I »read« Pinterest more than I read blogs!)

Time changes stuff. Stuff evolve. Shape into new shapes. 
I'm not opposed. Just considering how I fit into this. If I still fit. Or if it's time for me to change too ...
