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.

Didn't take too many photos today because of the rainy weather but I did manage to snap a few in between the showers.

Midsummer Day

Hi friends! I'm currently in Sweden and I'm delighted to be here. It's such a treat to get opportunities to travel as it something I truly love. I don't have many words for you as I am very tired from the jet lag but I do have lots of photos. Please enjoy :)
All photos were taken at Skansen Museum.

Knit Picks Hawthorne The Pearl
1. Knit Picks Hawthorne in The Pearl
2. The knits are piling up. If only the weather wasn't always so warm.

This year my knitting has become out of control. I've always really enjoyed it but these days I knit more then ever. Usually a bit in the morning and then an hour or sometimes two before bed. It's so therapeutic and I find myself really enjoying the process and how accomplished I feel with the end result. I know this stuff seems boring to many but gosh it's exciting to me. Oh the little things.

Now I'm off to run some errands in preparation for my trip tomorrow.

I haven't been the most dedicated blogger this year. My post are few and far between. I suppose it because my mind has been elsewhere. Most free time is dedicated to creating i.e. sewing, knitting, baking. It's a shame because blogging has been a great way for me to record pieces of my life. This summer I'll be trying to get into a blogging routine.

For now I have some phone photos to share of some of my recent makes.

Many of the makes above are for my etsy shop (esthermarquis.etsy.com) Just need to list them.

Hope to be back soon!
