Take charts!

I hope you are well. I am working a lot these days—feeling very thankful.

A card I made earlier this summer. Do you remember the peacock?
Making the gif in Photoshop, the chart (below) appeared. Oh joy! More charts :)

If you have seen the movie Carne Tremula, you might know this track: Sufre como yo. It made such an impression on me. I hope you will like it too.

One should defintately make more charts!

Wouldn't that be cool. "Mood-chart of the day". "Efficiency-chart of monthly dairy intake". Ok. Maybe not.
Did you ever play The Sims? The characters' "plumbob" turn green when he or she is happy (and red when they're upset). I sometimes think "if I was a Sim—my plumbob'd be completely green right now" :-D . Not a bad idea, though—could be helpful in numerous situations. (why did-I...? Oh yeah -- mood charts).

So. Ok. Charts. And doodles.
Please meet Fiona (trust the chart—not the photo).

Fell in love with enchanting ceramist le petit atelier de paris. She also has a blog. (via dear oly). ummnm. so beautiful. Have a great day :)

a Moment

(a little holiday sketch)

Friday. Wonderful, Sunny, Soothing Friday.
Will you take a moment with me? Five minutes (well 5:25 to be exact). To lean back, listen, and let the world around you -- simply be!
I hope you will join me. And have a wonderful weekend.

Yesterday at the gym, I all of a sudden sensed the smell of Autumn. Do you get that too? Sometimes it's the earthy smell of outside, sometimes the rain, sometimes that hard-to-put-your-finger-on smell, when you instantaneously think: Sweaters. Knitting. Tea. Forestwalks. Soup. Candles. Bam! All at once, in a smell.
I love the Autumn. Love-love-love. If I was to choose a favourite season, Autumn would be it.
Which one is yours?

Have a sweet Tuesday :)

Working days—knitty nights

Finished a little neckwarmer. Modified Cherry by Helga Isager.
Have you seen The Pearce Sisters? You can watch it here. Very beautiful. And a little scary :-)
Great blog Dear Oly. Via Eddy and Edwina (who, luckily for us, is posting again after a break)

Nothing to do, and Momma's working aaaall the time. Come lunchtime, we decided to grab a quick bite, standing. Suggestion: Rye bread with fig spread. Sure. And remoulade ...?! Yddrr, we both said. —should we try? Reaction: Ummnn ... good. (!)
Down went 3 fig-spread-remoulade. (I must admit I stuck to my potato-mayo-bites) and we took out the fancy glasses to drink pommegranate juice from, pretending it was a very fine red wine. Did you know?! This kindda wine is absolutely best enjoyed with a snip of parsley. Yep!
