Påsk!

Now I'm ready for Easter! I've decorated eggs, bought tulips for my Alvar Aalto vase and I've already had too much chocolate. Unfortunately, I won't be able to enjoy my mom's lamb roast...

Work in progress

I'm currently working on my own take on a traditional Swedish fisherman's sweater for cold summer nights. I'm using a thick cotton yarn so hopefully it'll be done soon!

Burst of colour

My favourite Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter has a feature on the amazing and colourful home of interior designer/artist/gallerist Anita Eneroth.

Stitch it!

These amazing Converse sneakers are from Sublime Stitching's Facebook page and I just had to repost this. Embroidered shoes!! What a great idea! I'm on it!

Latest accomplishments

Here are the most recent additions to my wardrobe. The 'R' dress from A to Z turned out really well and I can't wait to wear it once the weather is a little bit warmer. Maybe with some sandals, a cute cardigan or even with a vintage leather jacket. I could also dress it up with some nice heels, pearls and a scarf.

My other project was a version of the 'Budding Romance' dress from Twinkle Sews. I found a beautiful cotton voile but the dress didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. I'm considering turning it to a blouse by making it a bit shorter and maybe adding a elastic band in the waist.

Easter eggs

I'm determined to have a HUGE Swedish påskris in my home this Easter. I remember decorating easter eggs in school and Martha always provides great inspiration.
