Those 2 cases, one for a Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, and the other for a Digital Camera Nikon Coolpix L27, they both found together a new home in Berlin, the beloved city! How happy I was to send them overthere? SEHR!

iPad/Kindle padded case

To show you all how is the easiest way to close the iPad/Kindle case in Limabaum´s Dawanda shop I made a video for you. Please have in mind I was holding the camera with one hand and filming with the other, it is much easier to open it up if you have your both hands holding the case.

I hope I can help the clients that bought the case to handle it better. I could not upload the video straight to the blog (sorry, I will fix that!), so please take a look into Limabaum´s Facebook page, here:

to build a home

this melancholic song brings me back somehow to childhood, maybe the climbing tree scene, or the deep root idea of home on my mind.

“Encyklopaedie der weiblichen Handarbeiten”

This wonderful book came to our hands in a Flohmarkt in Baden (Austria) and I was amazed with the quantity and the beauty of the embroidery works on it. Also the book gives more space to embroidery and lace, there are also good amount of knitting and crochet, and many other different kinds of needlework. A little bit about the author that I found out in the net:

“Thérèse Maria Josepha von Dillmont was born in 1846 and studied in Vienna at an embroidery school founded by the Empress Marie-Therese. After completing her schooling, she moved to Donarch, a village near Mulhouse, France, and founded her own embroidery school at a time when most aristocratic women confined their embroidery to salons and boudoirs.
The success of Dillmont´s school in Mulhouse led to shops bearing her name in Vienna, Paris, London and Berlin. A true pioneer of needlework, she traveled extensively, studied needlework in many countries, and collected hundreds of pieces of outstanding embroidery.”

How exciting! And how nice she let part of her knowledge to us so we can try this beautiful needlework, a loud “VIVA” for Thérèse!

In German the book is called “Encyklopaedie der weiblichen Handarbeiten” and you can find it here. For the English version, called “Encyclopedia of Needlework” it is possible to find some here.
