Hi everyone!

Remember I’ve been sewing – I got two pair of pants,

one dress and a scarf ready for summertime!

I have still a couple of fabrics waiting but

so many other projects are waiting that I need a sewing break…

 

We visited Kiasma (the Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki)

in December.

This is Pekka Kauhanen’s work –

‘Look Back and You’ll See in Front’ / ‘Katso taaksesi niin näet eteesi’
