Fika sounds sort of like having a tea break!
Yeah, something like that! Coffee is a more common drink for fika, I think. I somehow never “learned” to drink coffee so I drink tea, or water/nothing if there are no tea bags in the fika-room. (Yep, the break room at workplaces is more often than not called the fika room)
I made a bunch of french knots last night, and this tutorial helped:
Lavender has joined the teams call.
Linda your embroidery is fabulous! I love the ‘chunky’ appearance
Ok, so apparently I’m feeling adventurous tonight!
First I tried a new stitch for the border of the next square. It’s not very pretty, and I was on the last side when I started to get the hang of it.
And then… then I thought a shrimp would look good in that square. I started cutting a shrimp shape from felt to change things up, and was reminded of a stumpwork workshop I attended mumblety years ago. Well. I guess I’m winging a stumpwork-y shrimp on what I vaguely remember from that workshop + a fair bit of flying by the seat of my pants. Yay
I’m going to try and make an alive looking shrimp and not a cooked one. We’ll see how that goes…
Ooh, I like your squares, different colors and different stitches! Nice!
Im a bit behind, but managed a couple of squares this last weekend. Will make some more tomorrow and show what I have done.
Your thunder cloud came out nice! I haven’t had a chance to do any of the prompt from Friday, but I like them all…kinda lost on how to do one of them, so I am going to wing it with a tea cup!
This reminds me of the embroidery inchie challenge from a few years ago…but I love this 5 x 5 size - much more doable.
And I’m loving that shrimp - even unfinished!
Yeah… Instead of going to bed at a reasonable hour I did ”rain” real quick since I had an idea on how to do it. It came out almost as I imagined it
The square next to the lavender is reserved for the bumblebee, of course!
It’s friday, and the last five prompts are up! A few tricky ones to translate this time too…
Saft - squash/cordial
Sugrör - drinking straw
Fiska - fishing
Löjtnadshjärta - Bleedimg heart (the plant)
Kaffe - coffee
Edit, forgot the link:
No progress to report here, but my vacation started!
oh, no! I don’t think I made enough squares! I think I left enough room to add another row…I hope so!
I didn’t get everything done in time to participate in the bingo. The rules was to post the finished bingo card on instagram yesterday I’ll keep working on mine for fun.
The bingo will start on monday I think. 3 words every couple days until someone gets bingo I guess.
