minitour in Halland county

Heavy gray clouds

showers of rain coming and going

a tasty stop in a bakery

a birthday person celebrating in the bakery/coffeeshop

and more rain

this is our night stop. this was a top B&B and as it was a wild card
we did not know what to expect but
Ohhhh how good it was

this main building was from early 1800 and the same family have used this house
since. Used to be a pig farm but these days no animals belonged to the estate.
They used the buildings surrounding this place for B&B and Yoga retreat.

 the breakfast room and Yoga space in this house

our bedroom and other interior pics follow

breakfast house

below is where we stopped for coffee on our way back to Gothenburg

and finally a visit to Lilla Napoli, in Falkenberg, south of Varberg and
a place well known among Pizza lovers.
It doesn´t look much but inside is heaven waiting for you.
I had high expectations but I still was knocked.
A must 

We were gone 24 hours and I managed to see and eat and meet
friends all as I have planned worked out well

little girl

my sewing machine is getting back to work. so fun to make little dresses
to a little girl. The hanger is as old as me, was used to my dresses back in the 
I made one for myself too



I had a vision since my little grandchild was born, to pain with her.
So now we did, first time. See the hands and fingers!!!!!
copying is the best way to learn

Long Long Time

Look at these little squares

after a long long time I have taken up my needles and threads

seems to be inspired by the neighbours magnolia in this stiching exercise

love to spend some time with colours to experiment layers of colour

gluing some papers down in one of my books on my worktable

This lovely dogperson (as a friend calls him)
was a personality of his own. He died in mid-January, days before his 14th birthday.
He was happy and joyful and alert to his last days. We were prepared because of 
his age but he never became "old". Playing to the end.
We miss him enormously!!!!You can hear him coming down the stairs but he is not there.
neighbours,friends,relatives and family, so much loved.
we are so happy to have had him. 
ENJOY these pics of our MOPPE

A good life

                                              HE LOVED THE BOATRIDES

i´m back

Dear friends out there
I have been away from blogging for so long now. There are friends out there
that miss this little blog and they have asked me to start again, I never intended to
stop blogging but life did not give me energy to blog.
Since last post my dear, our dear dog Moppe left us and nothing has been
the same. we had him for 14 years and we miss him immensely.
I will make a post only remembering him soon.

came home to Gothenburg yesterday. 
always hate to leave this. skiing on the lake in silence is where I love to be. 
Or skiing on the mountain. Need snow around me

this situation is not good but it looks funny. It is not our house but 
an old cottage. When ice becomes like this it means the house is badly

another cottage with a nice collection of  broken skis

Rusty, filthy, old charm

this are  containers on my road, some work going on

and I feel some connection when stiching this slow stich.
No thinking, no goal other than meditaion

still leaves

I cannot not bring leaves home from my dogwalks.
they are so pretty and every leaf has its carachter.

love the structure of these half way dissolved leaves

a frosty morning
