sewing plan delfinelise

the making of a plan I went through my yarn stash recently. Since I no longer knit much (because of some neck/back issues), I thought it wise to free up some space by letting go of some of my yarn. That felt really good. So this morning I went through my fabric stash. Now, not…

Cocoon jacket Look what I made! On a whim, I decided that my wardrobe was in desperate need of a cocoon cardigan. Actually, from idea to finished project, I think it took less than 24 hours. That must be a new record for me. I love to plan things, and most of the things I´ve…

Last summer we went to visit my family who have a cottage on a remote island off the coast of North-Western Norway. This is a place where summer is defined not by temperature, but by availability (the island is more or less unavailable during the winter months because of weather), so bringing some practical garments was…
