Hi everyone,
 
It has been a very long time since I last did a blog post. It was in fact early autumn, since then I started a new job and life has been very different. One year on sadly  my shoulder is still not entirely healed from inflammation, but every day a little bit stronger ;) Which means I have starting making new plans, fun plans for the new year regarding my sewing, stitching and my all forgotten little shop. I have missed it all so incredible much! Meanwhile I have been inspired by different Instagram accounts, like Woodfolkknits, who made me a beautiful par of knitted mittens a couple of weeks ago (seen above). The mittens are made from a maritime wool and feature a traditional Maritime/Maine pattern known and flying geese or crow's feet (heritage wool from Briggs and Little wool). I am very inspired by the talented knitters seen around, the fantastic patterns they create and also beautiful wool fabrics, specially tweed and tartan wool fabrics from England, Scotland and Ireland. I appreciate the growing love for traditional skills, great craftsmanship and natural living everywhere I look, especially since these ingredients are a big part of my own life as well.
 
The gifts are carefully wrapped, all the shopping is done, even the Christmas tree is up and twinkling. I just need to bake a pudding and send a couple of cards I forgot last Friday. Feeling very warm and fuzzy, here's to a Season filled with warmth, comfort and good cheer.
 
 God Jul - Merry Christmas - Joyeux Noël !

Så skönt att allt har vänt för dig och du kan tänka framåt igen med nya idéer. Det blir jag glad över.Vantarna är verkligen fina jag är så svag för sånt.På julmarknaderna här finns en hel del och jag har nästan jämt nåt med hem. För att inte tala om Norgeresan i höstas.
Ha en fin och skön Jul
Kram Meta

A little late, but Merry Merry Christmas!
I 've been thinking about you this week and how it would go with you, or if you enjoyed Christmas markets, and whether you already had gone to embroidery. Then I thought .. I take a look at your blog. And behold a great message! Delicious which prospects for the new year! Enjoy it!

With love, Petra
