It is high time for a new embroidery article, it has been far too long!
A story of clutter and an embroidered hand towel20 February 2017
I have been decluttering my apartment for the best part of a year now, but the one area I find next to impossible to minimalize is arts and crafts. I have no problem getting rid of unworn clothes, books I will never read again or knick knacks collecting dust… But my collection of coloured paper, assorted embroidery thread and wool, dozens of different types of needles, postcards, beads, stickers, wax stamps and cross stitch materials? Nope, can’t do it.

Multi-coloured tassel bracelets31 July 2016
Some DIY projects demand a lot of attention, depending how used to the craft you are and how objectively difficult it is. In my case, one vivid daydream is enough for me to produce a rather holey woolen scarf that I never really know how to fix. When that happens, I take it to the old lady at the wool store who clicks the needles and fills in the hole in a flash before handing the scarf-to-be back to me, never showing me how to fix it myself. I think she secretly likes the power she has over me by being my scarf-repairer.
Embroidered necklaces9 May 2016
When I initially thought of starting my online shop on A Little Market, I had a lot of fun finding small objects to embroider while half-watching soaps from the 90s on my computer. These necklaces are the result of my first attempts to “mass produce” my cross stitch projects!
Rainbow zig zag hand embroidered bib15 April 2016
I have made yet another hand embroidered bib! After this classic design and this pastel one, I wanted something that felt more modern, and I am very happy with how this one turned out. You’ll never guess where I found my inspiration for this rainbow zigzag design!
Bunch of grapes embroidered bottle apron3 April 2016
You do NOT want to be near me when I’m trying to make a decision. And by this I don’t mean should-I-take-that-job-in-Thailand or should-I-invest-in-real-estate. Those are big decisions that understandably take up a lot of brainpower, but I am talking about the little things, including this embroidered bottle apron.
