Inspiration from Syfestivalen in Stockholm

Inspiration from Syfestivalen in Stockholm

Syfestivalen is Swedish and means “Festival of Sewing”. These days it is actually called Sewing and Craft Festival, but I think I’ll just keep calling it the short and sweet Syfestivalen for ever.

There is only one optimist. He has been here since man has been on this earth, and that is man himself. If we hadn’t had such a magnificent optimism to carry us through all these things, we wouldn’t be here. We have survived it on our optimism.

Irresistible Cotton Yarn

Irresistible Cotton Yarn

By total accident I happened to buy a whole bag of cheap and beautiful cotton yarn this summer when grandmother was visiting. I could not resist the pretty colours and it was time to try to make my first hexagon! I found a good description online and started to crochet round, and round… and I […]

Sommerfuglen yarn shop

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 PostsTreasure […]
