Felted lopi jacket

This is Manga, one of my great colleagues. The felted jacket became slightly too felted (experiment too daring), but for Manga's small frame, it is perfect.

Elin´s clothes made today

This fabric is from Jo-Ann fabrics in Ann Arbor. It is a shop I can spend hours in and never get bored.

Elin chose this fabric, so nice with some Japanese influence. The skirt has a stretchy knit waist, which hopefully will hang on the hips.

And the harem pants will fit perfectly into the organic market in Ypsilanti. Strecthy cotton so comfy.

My great niece´s mohair jacket

Ásta Margrét is Gods blessing to an autie who just loves to make children´s clothes.

This is the latest addition.

New Year with new promises

Dear everyone.
I wish all of you a happy New Year.
May it be full of joy and good health and visits to Vienna.
Those cushions I made over Christmas.
The Lion is a gift from my mom some years back.
I finally managed to make it into a cushion.

Findings since a while ago

This month I went to Iceland.
Those paintings are in my in-law's house.
I am not sure they have been on my blog before.
Summer goes past without painting much. I enjoy my little garden though and my new job.
Best regards to everyone.

Some more baby jackets

The knitting continues.

I have made a red, multi color jacket for Asta Margret who is now 7 months old.

It needed some decorating so some flowers were crocheted to embellish both front and back.

The gray jacket goes to little Johannes in Norway. He is only 2 months old but he sure will need a jacket for balmy evenings in Norway.

The blue vest is for Elin.
It is made with some remarkable soft mohair - wool mix.
An ideal thing to wear on a mild sping day.
The pattern is home made.

The little jacket is for Magnus, born in February. The size is more for February next year!
It is so hard to estimate when one is not working from a pattern.

I painted this still life the other day. 18x 24 cm, oil on canvas.
It took 2 sittings and turned out a bit pale.
Next time I will work with brighter colors, but still life it shall be.

Now with a new computer in the house I hope I will start posting more. I am busy with work, thinking about how to redesign the garden, planting seeds and such. I have made a few things for my great niece. She is getting to be 6 months this coming week. I knitted a little dress and a vest. Hopefully she can use it. I hope you are all well.

My daughter's boyfriend is an artist.

Not only a nice person but his illustrations are quite unique.

His style you hardly see anywhere else.
He has illustrated and written a book with some amazing pictures.

See some of his work on: Robb Johnston
I hope his book will be published.
