I have a blog friend who is so sweet and creative and who inspires me a lot. Still I haven't "talked" to her for ages. I feel so terrible bad because of that, but still I postpone writing to her. I think it's because I'm ashamed, and because I have no good excuse. It's so stupid of me.


I made her this bracelet. It's not my own design, but I thought it was nice to try someone else's design for a change. I don't know whether she'll like it, maybe it's too pink, but then on the other hand she can give it as a gift to a friend of hers :-) I thought if I make her this, then I will send it, and if I send it, then I'll have to write as well. I really want to stay in touch with her.

Are you ever doing or feeling like this, or is it just me? Since my daughter was born (and it's 2,5 years ago!!) things like this happen to me.


  1. I adore this bracelet! How do you felt beads? Really pretty. I found you through Blogging Your Way workshop. I didn't start the class until it was almost over (traveling). I'm trying to get back to posting a couple of times a week. Should have never taken a break last spring! My great grandmother came to the US from Sweden when she was 13. Not much Swedish culture got passed down, just a love of Swedish design.

  2. Thank you! I actually got those felt bead pre-made, but I've made my own felt beads earlier and then I have tried different methods. I think I prefer felting them with water and soap in my hands, rolling them into beads. I've also tried making them in nylon socks (but I don't know how to explain how I did), however they wasn't as good as the ones I do by hand. I've tried needle felting too, but they turn out lighter than the wet felted ones.
