I know it’s been a while, but I’m still here!

Tweet My poor blog, it has been shamefully neglected of late! I am quite ashamed of myself! And I know this sounds like a very lame excuse, but I have actually been rather busy… At the moment I’m up to my ears in sewing. Nothing as exciting as historical clothes or anything like that; right now I am making a whole bunch of aprons for a Christmas fair that I’ve said I’ll take part in. That is in about a week, and I still have quite a way to go. I’ve had a lot of work trying to find the … Continue reading

Parasol Makeover – part 1

Tweet Ir would appear that not all of my creativity is dead at least. Because I’ve just started another project! 🙂 From the title you have probably already guessed what it is… Yes, I’m going to try my hand not at parasol making, but at a parasol makeover.

I need help!

Tweet Now we have entered the month of November, and every year the same thing happens… Here in Sweden, where I live, this is the time when all the leaves have fallen of the trees, when everything is grey and it’s raining.

Yesterday I did receive my favorite magazine with the mail, (for those who can’t guess which that is its … Continue reading

Emma 2009 – part 2

Tweet We finished viewing it last night. So I am now able to give you my full review of it. First of all; I loved it! Sure, there were some small things I would have changed if I could, but over all I really liked it! (BTW, I am assuming that most of you who read this are familiar with the story of Emma. However, if some of you aren’t I must warn you that I might give away some spoilers here.) For some reason I was convinced that this adaptation was going to be 6 hours long, instead of … Continue reading

Emma 2009

Tweet So I finally saw the first two episodes of BBC’s new Emma yesterday. It took me some time to make up my mind whether or not I should begin to watch it. I had some idea that I wanted to wait until it was all out, so I could watch it all at once. But I found that I couldn’t wait that long! So yesterday my sister Viktoria and I sat down to watch it! But that wasn’t easy. I knew of a couple of different places where you could see it. First we used youtube, but then, right … Continue reading
