sweet candy hanging


belonging to a small group of quilters, Fria Tyglar, now exhibiting in
a small town called Falkoping. above quilt is made by a few of us as a collaboration
some years ago. it is two-sided. We call it Sweet Candy.

Above is a small quilt by one of my friends, Gunnel Wright,
and it is one of my favourites

this is mine. 12"x12"
it is a challenge within the group to illustrate a book we like.
I chose the book Fallvatten, by the swedish author Mikael Niemi
and it is about what can happen when a dam bursts and a lot of 
water comes loose. what happens with towns and people when the
flood happens.
I tried to make a dark picture with heavy water coming towards you.
scary scenary and exciting to read. 
Can it happen. Of course

found this parking lot so charming with the doodling. Made me happy

variations of browns at breakfast

all in harmony

I love surfaces and i get inspired by the things i  see around me.

A couple of weeks ago, I travelled from the city of Stockholm to the island of 
Sandhamn, situated in the outskirts of the Stockholm archipelago.  We 
passed by so many beautiful little houses built a long time ago.
The charm was added to the fact that the summer have passed and
many of the houses are empty, waiting for next summer.

back home

trying to get the trip to Orvieto stay, I work with the travel journal
and the embroidery Pam Garrison so kindly gave us.....
Hundreds of stiches remains....

and in between the laundry and bills I have to bake my favourite bread.
In italy the bread was not my favourite. No salt added.
There used to be a tax on salt in the old days and they made
it therefor their thing.
No,  the italian breakfast is not for me.
