While I'm at the Gallery working with other things than crafting over the weekend, I would love if you entered my Give Away.
Just comment at the post about it before Sunday 00:00 o'clock the night to Monday (the 28th)this weekend. (Stockholm time).

I work part time at a big Gallery in town. Thursday & the weekend I am going back for a 'guest appearance' (I'm on maternity leave now) to work at the yearly BIG Spring exhibition. We are expecting over 1000 visitors. I've been working with this for some years now - people can drive you crazy :)
If you are interested in the comic format - this is my comic-website where some of my comics are posted.

Update on crocheted wallpaper project:
OH NOOO! This is getting really scary! The colors just don't translate well from the wall to cotton yarn. It looked so good when the yarn wasn't crocheted - but now it's hideous.
(it's even worse in this blue-tint Swedish winter non-proper-daylight image)
These wool yarns looks much better! Going with this yarn/color-sample to the local yarn store tomorrow and see if they have something in cotton in these colors.
I give this project one more chance - if it failes - it's "in-the-cupboard-under-some-other-scaryprojectstuff" and forget about it.

I have seen this flowers, made with something called a loom-plate, in several craft books from the 70's. It looks fantastic an I want to try it out. I'm wondering if enyone else want to discover the loom-flower-technique with me? If you want to join in or if you already are working with this technique, I would love to hear from you. Drop me an email or comment here and we can start exploring this together.
I would love to get some tips on where to find out more about these flowers.

Got the iPod Touch for Christmas from my super kind mom. I'm a gadget geek and just love to read the manual of stuff like this. It has everything; surfing through Wlan, lots of GigaBites for video, movies, music and PODCASTS! I'm a fan of Sister Diane over at CraftyPod and usually I listen to her interviews while working on the computer. Now I'm a subscriber and I filled the iPod with all the episodes I've missed. Wonderful world of crafty goodness! (as Diane puts it). My morning walk was all to short today - I long for tomorrow morning so I can listen to an episode about 60's & 70's crafting. This walking and listening to PodCasts about craft is going to do wonders for my cardio :-)
Due to the big screen on the iTouch I got concerned that it would get scratchy in my bag among all the things I carry around with me. I crocheted a Brigitte Bardot-checked pink/white cover for it. Added a tiny bow. The iPod is staying in its home with a little band and a kittybutton on the back.
Now, I'm surfing over to Granny-along! Bye bye.

First: Thank you
During the night I had my 3000nd visitor! It's amazing THREE THOUSAND visitors, it blows my mind! I'm so happy for all of you that has visited me and all of you that has listed me in your blogrolls. Nice people posted my stuff on Makezine & Craftzine (great webMagz check them out) My flowers on a stem was in Dagens Nyheter (Sweden's largest morning paper) and my lovely brother did a shout out on his super funny blog (Swedish blog). Thank you all! I love that you helped me to make this connection with all you fellow crafters out there.

Do you take Visa?
(don't we all need some crocheted credit now after all the Christmas shopping? )
This is one of those moments when you suddenly take a step back and look at yourself crocheting a Master Card in super thin sewing thread two o'clock in the morning. What on earth am I doing?
But you probably also now the feeling of getting an idea and you just have to try it right away. This project is up there with the crocheted wallpaper project in November :-)
Happy new year everyone! I've been on a vacation up north in Sweden to the beautiful Dalarna ♥. If you like Swedish folklore - this is the province to check out.
