Goodness, I have been quite busy. Lately I've been sewing up a storm getting fall pieces ready for the shop. I've sewed up quite a few designs and can hardly wait to photograph them all and post them in my shop. I'm currently selling here on etsy and on my site I plan on listing most of the items on but will continue to list a few items on etsy as well. Below is a preview of some of the fabrics and designs I am working with. I'm going to start selling my knitwear and crochet wear as well!

Coastal Scenes

Not quite sure how I continue to fail so terribly at this whole blogging thing. I have every intention of writing at least biweekly but it looks like thats just not happening. My free time continues to be spent on sewing and knitting. Happy to say that I am being productive but I'd really like to dedicate more of my time to doing a bit more documenting. For know I will share photos of a recent road trip I went on with my brother and sister. We took our time driving along the California Coast (Los Angeles to San Francisco) Dreamy scenes all along the way. Such a beautiful state I live in.

Shibori and Wild Blackberry Pie

Tried Shibori dyeing for the first time and had great success. A new friend so kindly invited me to join her while she experimented with a indigo dye kit. I of course couldn't resist learning a new craft. Below are some photos of the process and end results. Can't wait to do it again.
Made another Wild Blackberry Pie. A couple of friends and I spent the morning picking the juiciest blackberries in the mountains so that I could make a pie for the evening. It was pretty darn good. Next time we go berry picking I plan to pick enough for some jam and ice cream too.

Wanted to share a few more photos from my trip a couple weeks ago. One of my favorite places I visited was the Rosendals Trädgård which I posted about in my last entry. Here are a few more photos of the pretty place. I also uploaded a few photos of some goodies from Pärlans. Pärlans is an adorable artisan caramel shop. There caramels are some of the best I've had. So naturally I bought a bagful to bring back. Unfortunately I only have a few caramels left. It's so hard for me to just eat one at a time. They are so delightful. They also serve ice cream with there caramel sauces. Oh yum.

Lastly I posted a photo of some of my kitchen purchases. I love how bright and colorful everything is. There was so many great housewares. If only it were a bit easier to bring stuff back home.

Well I have been quite busy this past week. Had a lovely time getting together with family and friends. Time is flying and I can't seem to keep up. Can hardly believe we are in the month of July. Hope to be back soon with something creative.

For now I leave you with a photo of one of my current makes and some beautiful yarn that I purchased during the trip.

Rosendals Trädgård

Had lunch at one of the most pretty gardens today. It was so nice sitting outside in the sunshine. The weather has finally cleared up and you can truly see Stockholm's beauty. It's was the first day free of rain since I have arrived. I took a few photos with my slr at the garden but I have yet to upload them. For now I have some phone photos.
The little birdie above joined me for lunch and would not leave me alone. He stole bits of cheese right from my plate. It was cute at first but then his friends came along...

Until next time.
