Picture of the embroidery I am doing on the shoulders of a green sweater/cardi

I have many thoughts rambling about in my head, but don't seem to be able to pin them down just now.
I am trying to keep my far too high expectations at bay, by being in the now.
Trying to make "now" at least acceptable, but perhaps , enjoyable, by adding these ingredients:
- Steaming hot tea, home made cookies, candle light, a good movie or music and splendid company from the cat:)

What a mess
What a mess x 100
This wall is going down, so my kitchen can get a big bigger!

I am not much creative at the moment.
Most of my time is used thinking about the apartment or working on it.

Today I did cut trough my nail when I was cooking for myself, thank God the nail was there;)

But I like to finish projects at the moment, so I have been fixing some holes in different projects.

books


I have bought 2 books - only 65 danish kr! (12 us dollars)

You cannot buy any new Danish book for that amount!
I just love English paperbacks :)

I am sucker for happy endings,
and have seen both several times, and listened to as audio books also several times.
About time I got them as books!

I am off to bed with classical music on the stereo, "A secret garden" and perhaps one last cup of tea.
No better way to end a day:)

buildings

Every time I go in to the city, well, I live in the City, but the center of the City then..
- I pass the same buildings on my way to my meetings.

And it is truly one of my favourite pastimes to notice buildings and their details, and we do have some nice ones in Copenhagen!

When I look at the beautiful buildings I forget all of the people around me, and all of the hustle and bustle of the street.




A beautiful mosaic on a large vault/arch belonging to the building on the first picture, much more stunning in real life though.

Do you notice anything in particular when your out for a walk?

stencils for living room

One of my ideas for my new apartment, is to have flowers painted on one of the walls in the living room.
At first I considered wallpaper to make it easier for myself.. But I honestly cannot afford it.

Instead I am going to use stencils.
I have used 3 different pictures of flowers from the internet and drawn over them.
Then I collected the motive I wanted, and after I made drawings for the 2 stencils I am going to use.

Above piture:
The motive. Will be painted in white, pink, blue, and grey colour variationspicture above:

I still need to actually turn them into stencils by cutting out the shape on some cardboard.
and it will probably be a good idea to test them, just to see if the holes are big enough, and to see how much the motive change by using an other technique.
