It looks nice! McCoy went with us on a weekend trip to Gustavs parents since his father turned 70. I wasn't feeling well and I don't think I took any pictures at all... Oh, well... Today I think I'll work a bit on the not-a-scrapbook.

I got some supplies today. A really neat "everything but the kitchen sink"-store in the area was having a closing sale. I'm sad to see them go, but took the opportunity to raid the yarn/ceaft section. Not that I need more yarn, but I didn't bring any supplies for this swap on the trip and I had an idea...

We're celebrating my father in law who turns 70 today. I'm being a boring person resting upstairs since my knee is beimg a spoilsport.

Exciting! I've mostly been thinking for now, but will start pestering my partner as soon as I can. I'm trying to think of a way to craft in the car on our trip this weekend, but that might end with me taking an eye out, heh.

I can make an "international swapper" badge for whoever sends to me, lol.

Couldn't resist... Badges are fun!

Yesterday I received the photobook I ordered! I want plenty of time to get the package in order and I just know the last couple of weeks will fly past... I snagged a nice and large box at work today. Maybe a bit too large, but it's a start. I can probably fill it, and if it turns out too large I'm sure the kitties will love sitting in it, heh...


On sunday we had a little adventure! Here we are waiting for the bus early in the morning. Public transport is great! With a busride to the commuter train and just one stop to change to another commuter train I can get to Uppsala. My sister picked me up at the train station and we drove to a small place called Österbybruk for their annual wool market.

There were plenty of vendors, but also classes, exhibitions and talks. We managed to have a lot of fun despite the rainy weather. It poured down as we pulled into a parking spot, but soon clamed down. We could also spend some time indoors or under a roof.



Värmland and Jämtland are two Swedish sheep breeds. Jämtland is a merino-mix breed bred for Swedish conditions. Super soft! Värmland sheep is an old Swedish breed that almost went extinct, but there are around 4000 of them now thanks to careful breeding.

I actually didn't buy any yarn, but I was very inspired to start knitting something with the two lovely hanks of dark grey Gotland lambswool yarn I have at home. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotland_(sheep))


I love this artwork! Each square is made from a different technique (I'm guessing by different people too) and it's all natural wool colors.

All in all a great day!

I'll probably try to design and order a photobook since that will probably look better than anything I can cobble together myself. I will make (have started) a small scrapbookish thing too, but it's not super fancy...

I guess I should be thankful life craziness happened *before* I claimed anyone and not after... Not sure I'll find time to claim this month, but I guess I'll just try again next month in that case. It's nearly august! Insane!
