Working hard


This might be the most boring post I ever wrote and still I'm writing it. Why? Because the last few days I have been working really hard, lots and lots of hours of pinpricking. So far I have pinpricked 14 large plates. No stitching, just pricking. 


Here you can see my stack of pricked plates. Why all this? Because I want to make at least 7 of these.



It is a good thing I love these circles so much otherwise I might going nuts ... or maybe I am already?

Have a fantastic day with your own obsessions.

A new road



Making this box with a pinpricked and embroidered spoon has been a slow process with a number of trials and errors but I do so like the end result. Instead of signing it I pinpricked my name in the cover together with 2016. I planned this as a gift and as usual now I have to think about it because I love it so much. What else is new?

Have a fabulous weekend!

Nordals




Three new items for the Nordals book ready and also photographed on a map of my part of the isle. Behind Egen I put a picture of the church in Egen. The hexagon for Pøl is pinpricked in such a way that it looks like a cube. The last one is for Svenstrup. Svenstrup just won the yearly award for best countryvillage in Denmark. Since the people of Svenstrup are very socially active in all kinds of local groups I decided to add my symbol for connection in pinprick.

Have a wonderful thursday.

Nordals



The page for the village of Elstrup is ready. Have done these circles of bullion knots on paper before, the strange thing is that again I love some details but have a hard time liking the whole. Maybe it is the composition or maybe I simply get overwhelmed by all these bullion knots. Anyway, you can see the end result in the photograph below.




Have a wonderful wednesday!

Back to the Nordals-project


One page for the Nordals book is finished. The overlay waited patiently until I finally made a picture of the church in Kirkeby. When translating Kirkeby it says Churchcity in English although it is a small village and it is therefore that I wanted to add a photograph of the church to the page. Behind each letter is the same picture only a smaller size. 

One town lives on a page now, 24 still to go. 

Have a great weekend!
