Another completely un-blogged year has passed since my last post... Considering all the weaving, spinning and historical sewing I've actually done during this time, this feels like a slightly weak post to return with since it will be totally free from any form of historical craft. But it will have to do, for now.
I've finally succumbed to the vastly overrated world of smart phones, and got myself one with the biggest screen I could find. One I can draw and write on with a "smart pen". The reason I even bother to put this onto my blog is that I writing this very post by hand, as in with a pen and not a keyboard. My little machine recognises my scribbling and does the typing for me...the future is here and it allows joined-up handwriting! Yay! This post is also a test to see if the Blogger app works at all for me. If it does, I might start blogging while I commute to work, which would probably mean it won't be a year until my next post. So here goes...
A while ago, I took part in a weekend workshop called "Berättande broderi" (literally "Storytelling embroidery" in Swedish). Basically, free embroidery using sewing thread and a line drawing kind of expression. This inspired me to start making small embroideries from old childhood photographs. I finished the first one this weekend.
It's me, aged about 3 or 4, with a fern on my head.
