White Easter?

It's been snowing on and off for days now. Tiny flakes, but still they make the landscape blurred and turn the world white again. I like snow and cold winter, but really.. it's almost Easter.. yes an early Easter, I know.

This is the hill where we use to roll eggs. And the same hill another Easter (April that year) with the first "eggs-perts" arriving.

.. and the view from the top.

Maybe we have to arrange a snow-egg-race with small slopes this year?


Nålebinding / Nalbinding

Yesterday we made a small family-female-trip to Nordatlantens Brygge in Copenhagen,  joining a two hour introduction to Nalbinding.

It was a bit difficult, in fact I must admit my attempts were most tangled, and I didn't really get the hang of it until late afternoon today, when I watched this several times.

Anyway it was an interesting and fun Sunday afternoon, with about 50 concentrated and giggling women (and one man) trying to learn this ancient craft.

Nordatlantens Brygge is organizing several nordic-fiber-craft talks/introductions during the year on top of their old warehouse in the harbour.


The mutating flu

This winters flu is not an easy one. Seems it's mutated and can come back..

In this house some had it before the winter break - one during - and then it came back to those who already "enjoyed" it in beginning of february. So this weekend was spent under woolen blankets, drinking lots of tea again and watching old movies like this one:

Actually I think this movie is a healing kind of movie.. he, he.
