Today was an ok day. Ds has a friend staying overnight so he is happy and occupied. Dh is playing games in the computer and seems to be in a well mood. (He is off from work for a stress related leave, so not everyday is a good one for him.) Dd is sleeping her little head off. and dinner is almost ready. My idea
I've decided to design and make a Bunad for myself and my dd. My dh and everyone doubts I can do this, but I am willing to try anyhooo. It is WAY to expensive for me to buy one (27,000nkr on average). Also, since I am not Norwegian and only married to one, I didn't think I could wear one and feel right about it.
So I thought I would design one. Since I am from Cali, I figured I could incorporate the state flower and the state tree into the design. Not the whole tree, just the leaves. Them mix that up with Rogalands original design since I am now part Norwegian by marriage. One of the great things if I can do this is to be able to pass this down to my dd. Since she is part American and part Norwegian she will have a bit of both represented in her dress.
Wish me luck! I have no clue how to embroider (for all bunads are done by hand). I guess I have a lot of work and learning ahead of me.
Haven't been posting
Since I haven't been knitting.
Too many things have been happening to give me enough time to knit. I miss it, but have no desire to start or finish a project. Sad I know.
I still am taking care of my webrings tho. I had to put a few more people in the queue and a few more have signed on. I haven't updated the blogrolling, but when I get time, I will.
Hope all is well for everyone!
