i have something to tell you.
this is my apartment in stockholm. i love everything about it.
except that today was my last day in it.
tomorrow i’m headed home.
dear mary ann moss,
we regret to inform you that your return flight home has been, alas, delayed by 9 hours. fret not, for you can simply rebook your flight free of charge. we urge you to stay one more week in stockholm. it’s the right thing to do and besides you know you want to. after all you are on a leave of absence and when else can you act so impulsively?
yes. it’s true. auspicious news was received via text message from the airline this morning. i did the only thing i could do.
i rebooked. insert gales of laughter.
my apartment wasn’t available. so i found another.
still on södermalm, but in a new area to explore.
i wanted to share some red & white beauty with you today.
so i started this post about some things i’ve been feasting my eyes on. this was earlier today, before i got sidetracked with the flight delays.
i’ll just get back to it now…
otherwise you will miss an astonishing amount of gorgeous embroidery, needlepoint, cross stitch and other handwork.
a dizzying collection.
and that would be v.v. sad.
this vintage cut paper piece was in a display case at the museum (obviously not the textile room).
patterns from josef frank at svenkst tenn.
more delicious textiles from nordiska museet.
svenskt tenn. just go.
a shop along hornsgatan in the mariatorget area of södermalm (the island i’m staying on). this was the same shop where i snapped the photo of the large collage piece from above.
tomorrow i move into my new home for the week.
broadcasting to resume shortly.
love from sweden!
