New and colourful Fabrics

New and colourful Fabrics

Sometimes I just can’t resist cute stuff. And they beg of me to photograph them and share them with you guys, because yes, they are too cute not to! For example, these three new fabrics (and one thrifted) came home with me recently: Loooove them! A new plastic bag with a cram cream pattern that […]

Crafting in public is difficult. Most grown ups tend to stand on the other end of the room and ignore you, or look curously but not get closer than three feet away. But you feel really happy when you get the smiles, the questions and when somebody is brave enought to compliment your work or […]

Four cats sat in a row

Four cats sat in a row

More Katt-i-fnatt cats! Last week nine cats where born, two sold, seven for sale at the café. It takes a lot of time to cut, sew and stuff them – but it is all worth it when I make the faces. It’s so fun to make different noses, add the eyes and see them come […]

Paper Door in Book of Dreams

Paper Door in Book of Dreams

My first try at making a door that you can open in a book. It is in my altered book Book of Dreams. Can you detect it? Retreat from the world. The paper door is made out of a handwritten text page: And maybe, if you open the door, you’ll see your summer retreat… I […]

Utflykt

Utflykt

Utflykt is the Swedish word for outing or day trip. It’s the thing to do in the summer, with friends and loved ones. We had coffee and cinnamon buns, sunshine and a great time. I took lots of photos, of course. Related PostsAutumn walk with the camera Summer Crush | Sitting by the Water Acorn […]

Living and Blogging my Crafty Life

Living and Blogging my Crafty Life

I went to town today riding on my bike. I got a lot of stuff that I wasn’t supposed to buy (including four beautiful Geranium flowers for 100 SEK) but forgot to pick up the developed photos that I was meant to pick up. Our cat Smilla is a beauty queen. I love her to […]

Craft, Art and Coffee

Craft, Art and Coffee

Together with any art or craft making goes coffee, if you ask me. So what could be better than a crafty caf? 15 minutes bike ride from my house, open all summer? Maybe that they are selling iHanna’s teddy bears and crocheted animals? Oh, yes they are. Sandra contacted me at the design market and […]

Comfy socks made with left over yarn

Comfy socks made with left over yarn

Inspiration struck, and I knitted a pair of socks in thick neat wool yarn (raggi) that I had left. I have used it for a winter cap and a very very long scarf, but had enought in two pink colours for a pair of socks (pattern from Ica Kuriren). And these are the first thick […]

Book of dreams – metal

Book of dreams – metal

Pick a goal. Pick a flower. Last week the theme was metal for the Book of Dreams. In this spread I’ve tried some metals out, but I feel that I really have to explore this much more, and maybe get a book on the subject some day. What I ended up using was acrylic paint […]

Summer holidays

Summer holidays

School’s out for summer! And on the last day of school it was sunshine, and I picked up a package from amazon.co.uk with lots of great books about mixed media that I will read – slowly. And get back to here, with reviews when I finish reading one. What is summer for you? It’s been […]
