I travelled the world and I live abroad. Yet, inside I still wander wide-open landscapes of home, dreaming Nordic dreams. Along the foggy dream-coasts with sandy soils, I soak the smell of seaweed and spruce, while the salty air tickles my cheeks. Oh, over these blue waters, strong winds shall carry my Nordic dreams.
I was trained a designer, I´ve worked as a fashion designer for two decades. Weaving was a big part of my education, I was weaving all my fabrics, I used for my collections, on huge floor looms. I look back at the years from 1994-1997 as some of the best years of my life. I LOVED my school of Design.
I found this beautiful film on Youtube, it´s the story of `The Art of Making a Tapestry, just wanted to share it with you..

I have a friend, her name is @dianalovring – when I´m in need of a talented and inspirational photographer I call her. Lucky me, we only live 5 minutes from each other. I had some ideas for a photo shoot for oh so blue, and Diana added that bit of magic – thank you D, I love the result, you are the best!
This piece I have shaped the corners a bit to get a more organic / round shape in the bottom. I play with a wooden loom, pure wool, brass stick and black leather string. I like that feel. These are my favorite colors right now, I hope you like them too 🙂
I’m back in the world of weaving and creating and I couldn’t be more happy :). This one is a new version of my all time favorite. You can find my all time fave if you go to my instagram account and find my WEAVING story folder. look for the_ohsoblue_journal
