Workie and an important message from the heart...

Dear Blog Friends ! It is finally sunday with some real sun actually ! My big cup of green Kusmi tea is ready and so are my writing fingers...The days are still very cold ,  but just to have the sun here if only for a few days is a big comfort for all of us that live in Stockholm as the winter never seems to end... It is time for us to have a little spring now... please! 
This week has been a week of working with some new dresses and finishing some spring Knits...The Julia mohair cardigan is one of them ... A cardigan , handknitted in pure soft Mohair and details in silk... We had very fun taking the pictures as always but I think even more when I get to be the model... I have a great dificulty staying serious but I think the photographer caught the feeling I wanted to express by wearing the Julia cardigan...
 
A cozy cardigan that you easily can dress up or down if you want to add a pair of jeans or a a little skirt...
 
The dressmaking is one of my favourite moments when creating a new collection, I have been making them since the start of my business. I love to sew them myself as I am a part of every step of the production , sometimes I get some help here in Sweden but nobody ever helps me with the wrap dresses , that is my area , I love making them almost as much as I enjoy knitting. This week I also started the patterns for some new dresses I have in mind , a little smaller , a little cuter...
 
I hope I have the result next week...
 
It wasn't my intention to make dresses this week , but how could I resist when I found the most lovely fabrics...My mind starts creating the very moment I see a fabric I like and then It is impossible to stop...Here they are..
 
And the same pattern but in blue...
 
The photoshoot will be next week and I am so excited to work with a new model you will get to know then...
Here a picture of one of the walls where I keep my treasures...my yarns of course , I realised it was time to give them a little time and and get this yarn filled wall a little caring and organization...Not sure if I succeded because a new idea always comes to my mind and I end up thinking of a new knitting I want to create...hahaha...
 So finally Dear friends this is what I have been up to this past week and I can hardly wait for next weeks interesting meetings and new creations... I just want to share some thoughts I have had in mind this whole week and that I want to express ... But first some lovely pictures that you can have in mind when you read my next text... They are pictures of one of the places I love most about my home , my loved Greenhouse... I am sooooo longing for the spring so that we all can enjoy it...
 
Dear friends enjoy the good and small things in life! Health , friends , good food , love , being active! Ignore people that give bad energy by being jealous of who you are and what you do... Believe me in this branch you see a lot of this.... Just wipe bad energy away with a positive and a happy mind!
Let us all enjoy high quality items in our wardrobe. Things that are made from small business, handmade and with no massproduction. Let us all care for each other and not feed the unhealthy demand for cheap production in countries that have unfair salaries for those who work! This exhausts Mother earth!
Look at all these beauties that nature gives us...Wonderful new fresh tupils and my new English pelargon . 
My tomato and strawberryplants happily growing and longing for the time they will grow outside...
LOVE NATURE!!!
 
Finally some pictures of this weeks window display ...
 
 
And from the outside...
 
 
And last but not least some happy moments in the boutique this week...
 
 
Thank you so much for reading my blog! I wish you all a happy week!
