Summer Essentials Sew-Along
The Answer: Yes.
It seems that, indeed, I can make a jacket in three days. I just layed the finishing touches on my jacket, and I promise you I will fill you in in more details when my head gets better, but for now a sneek peek:Read More
The Jacket: Day One
So, part of the reason I have some time on my hands is that I have a headache and a cold and have to stay away from the computer, so I write to you from my iPhone making it short and sweet. Thanks for the encouraging comments, you want to see some progress pics? Here…Read More
Can I make a jacket in three days?
June is drawing closer, and I still don´t have an appropriate me-made jacket for unreliable scandinavian summers. One of the first things I´ll be doing this June is to visit my parents in law up north in the country. All though it´s supposed to be beautiful there this time of year, with long days and…Read More

SESA update and out of office notice.
Hello! Just a quick note to say I won´t be blogging as regularly as I have the last couple of months. I´m staying at this place: It is beautiful here, but the internet connection is fairly slow. Oh well, the lack of internet is compensated with a lovely view! I have finished my capris for…Read More
