Today is my first vacation day of 2017. It started well with sunny skies and not too much wind. I went to town for a breakfast meeting with a supplier (yes, work on my vacation, but it's always more of a meeting with a friend so ...) Once I got back home the clouds started… Continue reading Summer
When we went to visit the new cousin I whipped up a tee for the new big brother. The fabric is organic cotton knit from Stoff och Stil, and I used the Schoolbus tee pattern from Oliver + S. The pattern sews up quickly and in this size (3T) it doesn't even take a half… Continue reading Big brother
My girls had a new baby cousin last week. We met her last night and I could finally give this set away. I made the quilt this spring, I think I started in February and it's been done and basted for ages because I dreaded quilting it. I wanted to FMQ it but I haven't… Continue reading Welcome!
The last week has seen some serious butterfly production. It being Easter and me being off work has certainly helped as well. There are six models of butterflies in the Lepidoptera quilt and I have finished all four of the D-model. These were the second largest after that big one in the middle and they… Continue reading Butterfly production
I didn't get anything done on the third butterfly last night because I was trying to finish Isabel's Shearwater kaftan.

I made Sofia a new skirt a few days ago.One night a few weeks ago she woke up early in the evening before I had gone to bed and she was a bit agitated. So to calm her and cool her down (her room faces south and gets really warm in summer) I took her… Continue reading A Skip in the Hopscotch.
We celebrated Midsummer's Eve in Sweden on Friday, and even though it's the start of summer it does get a bit chilly in the evenings and I wanted to make a sweater for the girls to wear. I've been eyeing the Nature Walk Pullovers for a while (I love the pants that come with that… Continue reading Nature Walk for Midsummer
