Midsummer was rainbows & orange sky

Midsummer was rainbows & orange sky

I don’t have any time to take photos of all the things I’ve actually crafted and done this week (yay for me), but as promised, lots of photos have been taken outdoors! These are all from Midsummer day (and beautiful night), and yes, it was all I had hoped it would be; the pole, the […]

To Dye for (Kool-Aid and Jell-O)

To Dye for (Kool-Aid and Jell-O)

I bought kool-aid and Jell-O in an American shop last year, but haven’t come around to use it until this week! In my first search I found good information in Swedish from stickat och virkat. Useful! Knitty has also written about dying with soft drinks: dyed in the wool. I also took the time to […]

I brought all of this home

I brought all of this home

Thrifting finds from last two weeks only: More second hand fabric. The red with roses has a bit of plastic feeling to it. The yellow swirls makes me smile. The white with rose stripes was a must-have, as the pink and gray 50th style fabric. Mmmmm! Loppis behind Kyrkstugan one day! A small pink vase, […]

We are going away over the night, since it is Midsummer today and in Sweden we have lots of special things to do today. So I serve you with a text about midsummer traditions (since I know lots of you will want to know!) and some Swedish summer photos from Kyrkstugan taken this past week. […]

Fika with inspiring friends

Fika with inspiring friends

You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you. /Dale Carnegie Last week I had coffee with two friends at my favorite museum, where we saw artist Anne Olofsson who had lots of scary photos […]

The Amigurumi Crochet Trend

The Amigurumi Crochet Trend

I’m one of those girls who have been caught in the Amigurumi Crochet Trend trend. What I like best is to make little animals, like Miss Muffins here. It’s fun watching your babies grow and then blowing life into their bodies with stuffing and eyes… You feel kind of proud when it’s time to send […]

Mirror mirror on the floor

Mirror mirror on the floor

Life is like a mirror, we get the best results when we smile at it. Why would any one take a self portrait with the camera? someone might ask. And the answer is obvious: Because you can! And it is fun and easy. And important? I listened to an episode of CraftSanity where the originator […]

Mini Moopy softie

Mini Moopy softie

I’ve been sewing a lot these last two weeks. And I haven’t put the sewing machine away yet. I have so many plans for things I want to make! Who could’ve imagined that I would be a softie maker? While the sewing machine have been out I’ve made my first mini moopy, from Carly’s great […]

Learning to walk

Learning to walk

I’ve not crafted as much this week as I would have wanted. I’ve been walking (talking, laughing, feeding, playing) with this fellow: Playing happy family for a short while when his mom and dad have been cleaning the apartment and moving to new place. He is learning to walk, right now. Taking mini steps and […]
