horse in focus























when making this piece of embroidery I was
inspired by a picture of a horse and a painted
piece of paper.....
all the fabric is pieces of silk

sorry























but I cannot stop showing you more from
the Icehotel in Jukkasjärvi. This is from
another artsuite, the bed in the corner.
The feeling is being in a lake,under the ice.
It is a spectacular feeling in real life.

the joy of knitting























I found this chair in a shop today.
Every little bit of wood is covered with
knitted parts. It has even got socks on.
A nice way to transfer something old
to a new thing

ice ice baby.......























here in Lapland, winter is at its peak right now.
It´s white white everywhere.

a favourite of mine.....


















I cannot resist to show this. My favourite food. Very basic,
and heavy. Made of potatoes mainly and I love it with butter
melting on top. This delicious dish is called "palt"!!!!!!!!!!
You either drink milk to this or you drink lingonberry-jouice.

no snow.....






















on this one. I have to show something but snow. but
I will be back on snow very soon. It is hard to avoid it.
This is a small framed embroidery. As you can see it is
some reflections in the glass and I am sorry for not giving
you a more professional picture.

me.....











for a change. I am on a jouney to my beloved home town,my
favourite part of the country of Sweden, Lapland.
Here I am posing on a fantastic "vehicle" called spark.
This is what people use as a transport when you don´t use
a car or a snowscouter. It´s really useful and very good for
the climat,only works with your legs kicking. You also keep
warm by kicking.

ice-man























waiting for the bus in the town of Kiruna
He seems to have been waiting a very long time
in the cold polar-climate
