Video where I’m romanticizing Dalarna, Sweden

This week I’m taking a course to play with free form embroidery. But last summer, we took a road trip to the Swedish area Dalarna to do some touristing in our own country. The real reason was an embroidery exhibition called Traces of Life, which you can also see in this clip. But mostly I […]

Stockholm from the Waterfront

Stockholm from the Waterfront

Asking ourselves, ‘Where am I right now?’ gives us a chance to step outside the internal dialogue for a moment of peace. Look around you, take a deep breath and notice what you see, hear and feel. Present moment awareness is the point of power and choice. It frees us from our compulsive thoughts. Laura […]

The ringwall in Visby

The ringwall in Visby

Visby is the capital of the island Gotland. It’s my favorite Swedish island, because the landscape is so beautiful and special. Visby is a super cute little town surrounded by a ringwall (ringmur in Swedish). I’ve been on the island for a few days, on a craft adventure with some friends. It’s been the best […]

Sommerfuglen yarn shop

Sommerfuglen is Danish for butterfly. I found this yarn shop in Copenhagen when I was visiting a few weeks ago. It’s a beautiful little shop with walls covered in inspiration and materials. Bulging with yarn. Exploding with colours. And the button section, oh my oh my, just have a look inside with me… Related PostsMake […]
