I´m alright.

I know it´s been a while since I last posted anything,  and yesterday I was planning a catch-up post,  joking about reporting that I´m alive,  and well. Little did I know about today´s dramatic events here in little Norway.

So instead of showing you what I´ve been up to the last month,  sewing wise,  I just want to let you know that I´m alright,  and so is my immediate family and friends. My brother works just a block away from where the explosions went off in Oslo today,  so his day was spent helping those who needed help. Other than that,  I believe that all my people have been spared from the drama.

My heart and thoughts goes out to the families and friends of everyone that´s been affected,  and especially to the parents who´s kids were at Utøya.  I can´t begin to imagine how they are feeling right now.

For rather updated and insightful information in English,  I can recommend the liveblog from Al-Jazheera English.

I leave you with this song,  which I find uplifting in times like these:
