Fabric flower inspiration

Thank you for all your well wishes and comments on my New Year Resolutions post. I was so surprised that so many had the time to read through that long rambling of words and very happy that it meant something and maybe helped some of you to set new goals and make some resolutions! Resolutions […]

Knitprovisation by Cilla Ramnek

Today I’ve got some smoking hot Book-news for you. I read about a new book over at Tricia’s blog Bits and Bobbins, and I just had to tell you all to go get it! I own it myself already, but in Swedish, and I love it. You will too, if you like crazy designs that […]

Free Form Crocheting

Free Form Crocheting

I borrowed a book from the library a couple of weeks ago. It is called Fri virkning (Fri haekling) and it’s about free-form crochet. I guess I have to return it to the library soon, but it feels stupid sometimes to return books that you want to keep. I read it from first page to […]

Do you need a blog subject or theme today, or a new friends? Why not surf over to Tine’s Studio Friday project and check out the new topic of the week and participate along with me and many other bloggers? This Friday the topic makes me think about weddings, because we are asked to post […]

Knit with Katarina Brieditis

Knit with Katarina Brieditis

I got the Swedish knitting book Lust att sticka  by Katarina Brieditis, one of very few Swedish craft women that is well known in media and that has an official image. She makes a lot of cool stuff, this book included. The pink cap is finished but no picture yet. Instead I bought this Swedish knitting book […]

No Sharp Edges

No Sharp Edges

Studio Friday theme is all round things! Life can feel very boring and square sometimes, but if we look around carefully we see the rounds in life. The rounds don’t have sharp edges, the round moves with grace. It’s in the details, the view you get when you go close to things, that you get […]

Women who Inspire me

Women who Inspire me

1. Astrid Lindgren A great Swedish writer of wonderful children’s books. She was a very cool lady, with political opinions as well as means to change the world to the better. Her imagination and story telling skills will always be a inspiration for me, and the characters in her books will stay in my heart […]
