Spring is not on its way yet obviously.

No it’s nothing wrong with the cam. It’s coming icky bad white stuff down from sky. It is white out there. No sunshine in sight at all.

Back to winter.

Light’s coming back up here in cold Sweden. It was -8C this morning. In the afternoon it was a bit warmer thanks to sun. Then it was only -2C.

Maybe Spring will come this year too.


No 31 drawing in my goals for 2018

The plot thickens. The spaceship passengers now seems to be ruled by a dictator that blames a few people for the memories central destroyment. They have to hide deep down in the spaceship. They try to explain their innocence by inventing every kind of language they can think of to make the angry mass understand, but it is like blind-man’s-buff.

In their room deep down in spacehip they try sending their messages with the language of trees and plants, but that’s doesn’t seems to help either. They see it all so clear but cannot make the angy masses and the dictator to understand anyway.

I can’t wait to read the next verse of this exciting poem that I get the inspiration to my drawings from. It’s a dark story about mankind, but very important if we ever learn from it and do different than they do in the poem.

Do you have a challenge for your self?

This series of drawings is my challenge. So far I made 31 out of 103 drawings, so I have a bit left before I reach the goal 😉


Can I show you something?

Found an old painting that I rerun here for you 🙂

Are you ready?


My mind to me a kingdom is

I repost an old post. I live much of my life in my mind. It’s like traveling through universe. I find many art ideas there on my journey. So this poem I find very beautiful and well written/Anna
I read a blogpost on HarsH ReaLiTy/have you ever if you ever, http://aopinionatedman.com/2015/01/20/have-you-ever-if-you-never/

that made me think of another poem.

This poem i found in a book about the Shakespeare era. A great inspiration for me and maybe also for you. Enjoy!

2015/01/img_2209.jpg I think the poem celebrates introversion. Learning more about celebrating introversion go see the TED-talk with Susan Cain. This is one of my paintings dealing with the questions introvert/extrovert. I call it And the winner is?

Puzzle calendar finished

In the post Make a puzzle calendar I told you about the idea of making a puzzle calendar.

First day section.

No the puzzle is finished.

Prep for next year. All packed in 24 little envelopes ready for next December puzzle calendar.

This was a fun thing to do in the December days waiting for Christmas Eve.

Shortest day of the year – kortaste dagen på året

Finally the darkness is about to cut daylight a bigger slack!

Spring will soon be on its way I hope 🙂

Äntligen har vi kommit till punkten där dagsljuset återigen får längre tid av dygnet.

Nu vänder det!


December 16 2017 nice findings

Global warming isn’t always bad…

I found these in the forest today

I gave them to a friend as an early Christmas present or whatever. You actually can give people little gifts no matter what day it is. Never mind if it’s a gift holiday, a birthday or something else day. Just give the gift when you feel like it 🙂


December 9 2017 Anna Day :)

Today it’s Anna Day in Sweden. You can read more about Christmas traditions on Anna Day here, if you find out how to translate the Swedish text.

The tradition says the Anna day is the time to start preparing the lutefisk and it’s also the day for Christmas beer brewing. These days I think most people buy prepared lutefisk and don’t brew their own Christmas beer. Many doesn’t even eat lutefisk today, so it’s old traditions. Though they still live in the meaning I get to hear every Anna Day that it’s time for the lutefisk work.

But I got something much tastier today 🙂

Chocolate cake! Yummy!


Första lussekatten – first saffron bun

Första hembakta lussekatten för denna säsong. Mums och vad snabbt den försvann!

First saffron bun for this season. In Swedish we call them Lussekatt. A direct translation of that would be Lucy cat. We eat them at Christmas, but the real saffron bun day is December  13 when we celebrate Saint Lucia day.

I wish I could send you a sample of this delicious bun through my blog, but we’re not there with the technology yet.


Wag the dog pillow

My question and exclamation mark embroidery became a wag the dog pillow 😉

I hadn’t the slightest idea of that when I started the embroidery.


This pillow will remind me to always check out why the dog wag the tail or if it is the other way around.


Finished! Färdiiii!

But not entirely finished. I have to make something of this. Maybe a pillow.

Inte helt färdig ändå. Jag ska nog göra en kudde av detta broderi.


Friday night – nostalgia from the 80’s

If you haven’t noticed it yet. It’s Friday!

And in my head this old tune turned up.

Yes I grew up as a teenager in the 80’s and the show Fame was one of the few shows with music in Swedish television. Back in those days we only had two channels and no VHS recorder. So everytime the show was on I watched. 

I thought it was amazing. It was rather fun watching this little cut from the serie now, but I doubt I would find it amazing if I watched the whole series today. But back then we hadn’t much to compare with.

Yes I know this is a cover, but I was too young to get that so this is my memory of the song. I smile when I hear this song. I hope The song can make you all smile too 🙂


This Friday I open the wp pub, where we all can meet in the comments field. Say what you want. Bring a song or two with you. If you cant paste the YouTube links to your songs in the comments, just name the songs and I find the link.

Happy Friday!

Despite all sorrows around me I feel very light in my heart today. That’s weird but very nice. When you believe in goodness in people I think you can feel joy no matter what. That’s amazing 🙂

Pub is open for everyone and we never close


A few stitches longer

Last time I showed you this ongoing piece it looked like this 

I have come a little longer now, but not much

Have a great weekend start!
