Testing mobile blogger

Been quiet here for a long time. And to disappoint you this is just a test blog post too. Let's see if I get a picture in here.

New Year 2012

Happy New Year 2012 everyone! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's break.

We had a quiet New Year's celebration with Mr. Here's first a couple of photos of the black Aura-river.

And then a couple of pictures of the light show that ended the Cultural Capital year for Turku.

Add some electronic music to this and you have the ambience of the show. The project's name is called Unveil and it marked an end to some kind of European Youth Culture workshop-thingy. Check more information here. Here's the whole show on Youtube.

Unfortunately the cold (+-0 degrees) took out my camera batteries far too soon, so no pictures of fireworks. Just imagine a bunch of light-thingies in the sky and you have it.

In the knitting and spinning world I will try to do a new year-stash dive and see if I can add my whole stash to Ravelry and I'll try remember (and dare) to take a bunch of pictures for you guys to see how much its grown since last year.

More sewing

I needed something new to wear. And I was on strike from work so I had time. Decided to make a skirt out of some Amy Butler fabric I bought in New York a couple of years ago. (Or is it three years?)

I started with a model, but ended up doing this my own way. Basically it is just straight pieces with a zipper in the back. Just need to do some modifications before I'm 100% happy.

The pictures are taken in the midst of our renovation project. So please ignore the stuff in the background.
