Books


These four books are right beside my chair for the moments that need to be filled with something interesting to read or look at, to learn or be inspired by. I feel so lucky that the library provides such a huge collection of books in different languages just to be picked up. 

Hope you too find some interesting summer reading.

New samples for my bullion knot ledger


A new idea popped into my head and I thought I'd give it a try. They are a new step for an idea that I already have for years but never thought I could make it. Slowly but surely it seems like I'm getting there after all. Happy days ...


Have a great start of your week.

A shirt of memories VII



Today I have a collage of pictures for you since so many new parts of the shirt are ready. Will give you a quick walk through: L&J are the first letters of my boys names. The little car is a representation of the car I went with to Austria many, many years ago and til this day give me the giggles when I tell about the adventures it gave us. (Even writing this sentence makes me smile). 
The shoe is for all the hiking adventures and who can live without books? .. Not me. The deer ran me almost over when our dog Dikkie was chasing it. I lived on Helgenæs at the time and that was the first time I moved to Denmark. 
The moustache is for the kindest man who gave me a home when I didn't have one and I couldn't resist to make one for my nickname amoung my bloggyfriends, the little elephant. 

Have a wonderful weekend and I'll be back on monday again.

A shirt of memories VI


Since I moved to Denmark twice and now already living eleven years on my Danish peninsula means that a new symbol needed to be made. Yes, this one is for Denmark!



During Easter 2017 I had my first exhibition and I made a couple of seals with paper plates. This one mimicks them because it was a very interesting experience. 


This one is also an oldie. Yes, you guessed right, this one also appeared on Soul Food. Can you remember what it meant? This one is for my dear husband. He is a chemical engineer and if you check the periodic table you know how precious he is for me.

Enjoy your weekend.

A shirt of memories V


Babysteps! ... Who doesn't make them daily!


On my Soul Food cloth this symbol also found its place. The mystery of life but one I can always count on and so I had to make one for this shirt too. 


My love for helleristninger is no secret and this one is probably my favorite one. This one is doodled, painted, stitched and pinpricked more than any other one.

Have a great start of your week.

A shirt of memories IV



This little bat is a very personal symbol that I doodled while being on the phone with a dear friend. Our friendship came to an end, the memories and this little bat are the only happy reminders.


The last one of this week are my blocks of life simply because living is building with the blocks of experience, talents and passion.

That leaves me to wish you a great weekend filled with sunshine and I'll be back on monday.

A shirt of Memories III


This symbol was created first in 2011 and through the years I made all kinds of different versions. It symbolizes the start of a relationship.


This jug isn't around that long, still it is one of my favorites. It symbolizes giving to me and that's part of everyone's life.

That's all for today.

Enjoy yourself.
