Primavera! Vår!

Spring is finally here!! :)
It's been a long and rainy winter and even though it's cloudy today you can feel that spring is in the air. Finally I can hang the laundry outside, buy some new plants for the balcony and take long walks!! :)

Vintage knitting


Here's my vintage knitting project for this knit-along. Both the helmet/cap and the scarf are very comfortable and practical and very easy to knit. I've found a similar pattern here if you are intrested in making one yourself (the link is for the pattern in Swedish but you'll find the pattern in other languages too on this site).

Vintage and March embroidery

Hi friends! I only have time for a short update and even less time to check out your blogs. My life is mostly about feeding and changing my baby girl that is now almost three weeks old and absolutely gorgeous! :)

Thank you for your advice on the quilt and I think I've decided to use the first fabric which was my favourite from the start. I haven't gotten around to making it yet though, the only crafting I've been up to is some knitting but I'll show you that another time.

In an earlier post - here - I told you about the baby clothes me and my brother wore as babies and that my mother saved. Here's my girl in a dress from Coop bought sometime in the early 70's. I love the leaf-like shapes that they seemed to use a lot since I have more clothes with the same pattern but different colours.

Another one of my grandma's monthly embroideries.
