another WIP


Work in progress, a slow progress ;-)
Sewing, sewing, sewing.

22 April 2007



Yesterday evening I sat down and made some atcs (since I had, earlier that day, found alphabetstamps and wanted to try them in some way). Earlier (before my time on flickr) I used to make a lot of atcs, but now I haven't made any for a very very long time. It seems I've lost it a bit ... lost my ability ... or how to say. But if I keep doing some more, I'm sure it'll come back. In any case, I had a good time making those.

I wasn't sure what would be the best, to scan them or to use my camera. In the scanner some shimmering and subtile effects of the paper and stamps was lost or almost lost. I tried to capture that on a photo instead. But ... the scanned atcs look more bright and happy, I think. Which one do you prefer, scanned och photographed?

like a summer day

i loooove this

It's been a wonderful weekend with summer temperatures, sunshine, flowers in bloom, long walks in the forest and by the water ... Not so much crafting, not any organizing in the house at all ... but who cares ... I'm crocheting a bit and I washed some fabric that I'll turn into a baby blanket, but when the sun is shining and the birds are singing, I prefer being outside, in the garden, working, photographing, being lazy.

Here's a frog I met today:

He, or she, doesn't live in our garden. But in our garden we have birds and butterflies and quite often two deers are visiting us.

some more yarn

new yarn

Yesterday I visited a new shop ... and came out with some more yarn. Did I need any? No? Yes! I always need yarn! Of course ;-)
I love this organic cotton.

Now I have to crochet. Really really have to. The yarn is crying "Maria, coooome, coooome". So, I have to go.

spring is coming, is here


I really like it here in our new place. It's so close to Stockholm (not more than 20 minutes by bus), but still out in the nature, surrounded by trees and water. I have spring in "our" gardenbeen knitting a bit, crocheting and I've made some cards. But I can't remember where I saved those photos.

Spring is here, however they say cold weather will come tomorrow ... :( But next weekend, it'll be even more sunny and warm than it's been lately! I hope they're right.

I have created a blog which is about enjoying the small things in my every day life. You can visit it here.

My little nephew, Lukas.
