Weekend work

By spotogspindel | February 6, 2016

A whole weekend to myself – great opportunity to get some projects finished!


First, finish the knickers to go with my lacy bra (freestyle machine embroidery). I´ve borrowed a see-through mannequin for the exhibition, and need to make the knickers big enough to fit! (The white fiber is the water-soluble fabric being fitted)

Ok. Done!


Second, use one of the embroideries that was stiffened by glue directly on the back (and therefore couldn´t be used for the cubes) to top a little coffetable. My uncle made this when he was quite young and in school. I found it in the attic and asked if he wanted it back. I think it looks kind of cute now, don´t you?


Third, sew part of a set for a show in March. 3 pieces done, 3 to go… need more fabric.

There is more embroidery lying around on all the floors. Next project is piecing together the right pieces for a chair.

Today Norway is celebrating the Sami day. Sami are the indigenous people of Northern Scandinavia.


Click the picture above and hear a real treat from Mari Boine, Norway´s #1 traditional sami artist. Seriously, listen to it, it´s great

    Takk, Janne, for at du deler Mari Boine med oss. Hun er en av mine favoritter. Selv om jeg ikke skjønner noe av tekstene så er musikken og hennes innlevelse noe som rører meg spesielt.
