Eye Candy: Decorated Envelope

One single message from a real person in my mail box makes my day. And if its a decorated, rainbow-coloured envelope stuffed with goodies? It feels like a precious gift. Someone took the time to paint, write, doodle, tape, sew and decorate a special envelope full of little gifts – just for me? Amazingly fun […]

Sketching on Fabric

Hey curious one… You can sketch with both a pen and a needle. Or you can combine the two methods… So my latest ATC is a self portrait of sorts. Very much an experiment where I had no idea where it would go or end but just started with a quick idea when I found […]

Loving the pistil stitch

We’re on week 37 and this week I’ve made the 34th stitch of the year! Wow, right? The sampler is growing, slowly but steady. This stitch is called the pistil stitch, also known as long tack knot stitch or Italian knot stitch (and pistillstygn in Swedish). Now that I’ve learned how to do it (it’s […]
