} Handarbete




I’ve been exploring some weaving in the past week! But you’ll have to be patient before seeing something concrete (unless you follow me on Instagram, then you might have already seen some teasers go by). I’ve had my vintage table weaver (Heddle loom) for like 5 years, just didn’t actually try it much before now.

Weaving definitely requires much patience, and also some planning beforehand, which makes me think of it a lot like my cross-stitch process, altho is it seen as a skill belonging in the knitting family.

That said, I’ve also been looking around to see other people’s skills in the matter, hence how I found out Handarbete (meaning “handicraft” in Swedish, love the name!). Wow.

Satoko Pettersson‘s skills and madly consistent and beautiful, and her color combinations are flawless. Her simple yet impactful patterns are also just a joy to look at. Totally yearning for a scarf now! :)

First, I would like to send you all my best wishes for the New Year 2011 everyone!!! We all deserve the best, let’s make it happen this year! :D

And second, OMG I have been drooling over so many furniture pieces I happened to see online these days, it’s totally driving me insane!

From industrial looking to vintage refurbished and everything in between, it looks like I have no personal choice of taste, because I just love (and want) everything! Or is it greed? I don’t know, and I don’t even care! lol

Check them out!!
