Crotchet VW bus – Virka en folkabuss

I just had to try if I could follow this pattern and crotchet my own VW bus. I had to translate the Netherland language to Swedish. I think it went pretty well.

Here’s my crotchet bus and you see the pattern picture under the bus.

Jag provade att virka en folkabuss utifrån ett nederländskt mönster. Jag lyckades översätta så pass mycket att mitt försök att virka en buss nu ser ut så här. Bilden från mönstret ser ni under min virkade buss.

If you want to give it a try. You find the pattern here.

Vill du också försöka finner du mönstret här.

Crotchet things are fun!

I can’t draw a straight line

When I say I can draw I often hear the comment Well I can’t even draw a straight line.

Who said the lines have to be straight?

Who decides if we can draw or not?

No one!

I come up with a little idea this year. For every day I do not find time to sit down and draw something I just draw a line with the nearest pencil I can find.

Then I can say for my self At least you have drawn one line today. That’s better than nothing. That’s a little consolation for not finding time to draw a whole drawing.

So I come this far in my one line a day, the days I’m not drawing ongoing pictures:

I just put the lines on the paper, one for each non-drawing-time-day, without any plan. Sometimes I don’t even look closely at the paper.

I want to see how many lines I collect and I want to see if I can make a real drawing out of the random lines eventually.

So, plan number two is to get you all involved in this project.

For each day you don’t do things you want to do, because you don’t find the time for it at the moment, draw a line on a piece of paper. 

In a couple of months or so we can compare our papers and see how many lines we collected. This is not a competition. It’s experimental. If we are good at taking time for what we want to do, we won’t have many lines. If we constantly make priorities “wrong”, we will have lots of lines. But in the end those lines maybe an interesting artwork that we created without knowing it!

Are you with me on this?


One of those days…

…you want to grow back down again

Holding hands Hålla handen (sold/såld)

Do you have such days?

The days that you wish you could be like 10 years old again. When tons of grown ups took care of all worries and problems for you. You didn’t even know you had them. They just protected you from everything that was not for kids to take care of.

You could just play all day and well, go to school some days too of course. But when you were that young, not even school was hard. Not for me at least.

I did enjoy those young years before the world got bigger than my little childish world were almost everything was fun and safe.

As a grown up you never have vacation from the hard parts of life. Yes I know, hard times can give you strength and wisdom. But does life have to go on and on with worries and problems constantly showing up as soon as you feel the slightest bit of aaahhh, no I can relax for a minute or two.

We all have our things that bothers us, but I still wish I could feel totally like a ten year old kid again just for a second. I need that kind if rest. I need vacation from my head sometimes. My head constantly spinning thoughts and eventually I get dizzy when too many things are contradicting.

But, this is just one of those days and they don’t come everyday, so this will pass.

Have a great day!


1600 WP Pub celebration

So, this blog has now reached over 1600 followers. That’s amazing. For me at least. The first year I had about two followers that went up to about five. That was before I understood the joy of blogging. The joy in talking to you all out there. I didn’t even know you existed. Now I can’t think of going back to silent blogging.

How to celebrate this milestone that you are all a part of?

Let’s make it a combination of a wp pub night and meet & greet. 

The wp pub is open around the clock, you can drink whatever you want and never get too drunk, you can eat what you want and play what music that you want. You are all welcome no matter where you come from or who you are. This is a world peace bar.

So start talking or just hang around in the comments field. Leave a link to your blog or another blog where you have found interesting stuff. If you have some good music to play for us, leave a link in the comments.

Let’s start celebrating the 1600 follower milestone!


Here’s another bar paiting. A drawing of Hoppers famous paiting.

Gotland Grand national

I can’t help that I think this is a cool enduro race. The worlds largest enduro race they call it.
Gotland Grand national. It’s muddy, exhausting and a big joy for people to watch. Never been there, never participated but always like to see it on tv. Gotland is our biggest island in Sweden in the Baltic sea.

Here’s some examples of the race.

I think this is fun. I’ve talked to people who has participated in the race. They say it’s fun. I believe them!


Take your time

Quick drawing. Have fun! What do you think about time?



Existentialism in micro universe

Found an old post that I think is still a funny one, just look at the drawings 🙂
I read two posts and the comments in them

Men and Women As Friends

i’m gonna talk about sex… | Jdawgswords

that reminded me of a drawing I did a couple of years ago from a script I wrote to my local theatre friends back then.

I have translated the talking in the drawing, so I hope you can understand what the story is about.
I did a short visit in micro universe and discovered that there seems to be some existentialism thinking there too 😉

It’s difficult to paint animals, but this lemur actually looks like a lemur, I think.
Att måla djur tillhör inte mina styrkor. Jag försökte mig på att måla en lemur och hade väldigt roligt när jag målade den.


Three little angels/Tre små änglar

Paint on stones is really fun. In these stones I found three little angels.
Måla på sten roar mig mycket. I dessa stenar fann jag tre små änglar.




Who can not be happy over balloons?

Vem kan inte känna glädje över ballonger?




My watchdog :)

Paint on rocks are fun. This was tricky, but the stone turned out to be a dog finally. 



Time flies away/Tiden flyger i väg

Time flies away. Sometimes when you’re having fun or when you one day wake up and realize that time you thought was forever, almost have disappeared. 

Tiden flyger i väg. När vi har roligt eller när vi en dag upptäcker att mycket mer tid har förflutit än vad vi trott.

Baking day

I’m having a baking day. That’s fun.

What do you bake, when you bake?



Kul med snö! Fun with snow!


Skidbacken i Trosa har inlett snösäsongen!

Ett ställe där snön verkligen har sin rätta plats.

The ski slope in my town Trosa has initiated the snow season!

A place where the snow really has its proper place.
