my oak leaves are featured in a new book

Stitched jewels, it is full of very cool projects that you can make using textiles. The publishers just sent me a copy, I am so proud and happy :) I published a few scientific papers but for some reason this one made me as happy as those if not more
you can find it on

Birds on branch

Birds on branch -1, originally uploaded by offgenemi.

My super talented friend recently had very very cute twin girls. She can not make anything just ordinary. I put the mural she and her sis made for the girls room earlier. This time she wanted to make a mobile and she came across a DIY bird mobile online ( and decided to make one. well I had all the cute, adorable Japanese fabric she was looking for so we started making an army of birds. She added some wings to some of the birds so they look like they are flying :)
I made some birds, too. I have a few friends, actually including her, 4 friends who had or will have babies this year so I will try and finish it before the babies make it to college .

Japanese inspired accessories from a Turkish-German couple ;)
