3 month of unwilling absense

I´m back
after 3 month of unwilling absense
Back in my home

I left here with the setup at the Galleri Svanen
for the month of August.

here´s what happened
and what I have been doing:

We were having a vacation in our new old house
enjoying the garden
and decided to paint the bedroom in our home
while out there.

this is what it looked like when we started to paint the wall


mould
and lots of it


in both rooms to the outer wall
our bedroom and my studio

and then the battle with the owner to 
get it fixed started.

in the meantime
we moved a lot of our stuff to the new old house as 
we wouldn´t be able to come back
after the end of our vacation.
thank god we had a place to stay



and enjoyed the summer
too a trip to Kullen in Sweden



enjoyed some lazy days
and I started working in my new studio 
in the new old house


hexi pieces


and preparations for the upcoming Christmas Craft fair
in december


an altered book


made with plaster and cloth


old stuff and dryed flowers
(it here)

from time to time
we checked in on our home
and the developments in the rooms.
This is how it looked like when they finally agreed
to fix it and removed the wallpaper.



no good...

back in the new old house
development on the hexi piece



and some tea bag art pieces
(also here)


old house looked like this
we´re now in september/october


with two empty rooms and everything
moved into the living room
including my studio stuff


some stitched fabric hearts


and a little accordion book


then the snow came


and we´re still at the new old house
We love being here even though it wasn´t intensional


more hexi pieces


and sticthed work


removed the clock parts
and made these into little pendants


listed here

and finally the work was done
the mould was gone
and the wall done in both rooms.

We have moved back


my empty studio.
I decided to sort everything and only things 
I will use got allowed back in.
lots of stuff went in the bin
it felt great.

It took me about a week.



everything is back in order
and I can work in here again


here´s a little view

and it´s beginning to look a little bit of Christmas



the living room table have been decorated.

sorry for the long post
but it HAS been 3 month :-)

I have no idea if there´s still some of you
out there visiting her.
I hope so

I´m back on a regular schedule now

wishing you all a beautiful 2. of advent

Tina ♥♥♥

Tina,
Sometimes life is hard, so sorry! We all have to deal with it and hopefully come out whole on the other side.
I'm hoping you're well at this time and continue to create your beautiful art.

Best wishes for a happy holiday season!
