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.
During the Wool & Yarn Fair in North Yorkshire, I had the pleasure to visit The Graduate Showcase, in association with Embroiderer´s Guild. It´s always a pleasure and great inspiration for an (old) textile designer to see, how young designers are developing today – I noticed that craftsmanship and handmade skills are still crucial if you want to stand out from the crowd – that brought a smile to my face 🙂
One year ago I never thought roving would be such an important ingredient in my every day life. I learned a lot the past year, lots of ups and downs – but I still know, with my passion and love for weaving, I will succeed – thanks for all your support, I couldn´t do it without you! #followyourheart
the Winter season has arrived, I´m a huge fan! First of all because I like the colors of the naked landscape, it has such a beautiful graphic feel. 2nd, it´s time to sit inside and read books and drink coffee!! I just received `the kinfolk home` this morning, can´t wait to get started! Have a beautiful day.
I worked in the fashion industry as a designer for more than 15 years, I don´t think I ever used the color orange in one of my collections. I do not think orange does anything good for you.. that´s also why I fell in love with these ghost pumpkins from the local market today. Happy Halloween!!
Earlier today the sun was shining and I could feel the scent of Autumn just around the corner. I love this season, it´s my favorite, right after Christmas. We went blackberry hunting in the woods. Him and me.
Hi there dear friends, I want to share with you my master piece of the collection. I´m so excited about this wall art. I´ve used my favorite colors, creme and nude. I discovered a new wool roving supplier last week, located only 15 minus from my house @adelaidewalker had the biggest selection of wool roving i ever saw! I found the beautiful drift wood stick when I visited Lakeland earlier this Summer, I believe it just completes the piece.
