Jackpot!

I have been hit with the sewing bug, finally, again. The only downside is all of my sewing tools are at my flat in Linköping and I am currently flat and cat sitting in Kalmar (3 hours away for you nonswedes). It's fine, I have plenty of beach time to occupy my day, but the craving for historical clothing, etc has taken over. Plus, my friend has a killer soundsystem and tv in her flat.

Today, Fredrik and I went to Media Markt (its like Best Buy) and they had a huge collection of basically every BBC historical drama available. They were cheap too. A 3 pack for 149 kr (20 bucks).

I am now the proud owner of Clarissa, The Aristocrats, Under the Greenwood Tree, Life on the River, He Knew He was Right, and The Buccaneers. Also, I bought Fanny and Alexander an Ingmar Bergman film.

What film shall I watch first? Hmmmm....

I'm back in Linköping in mid August, so I will start sewing again then. I finally have the inspiration to finished ... or...begin..my 1810 gown..finally. :)

Also I've updated my other blog about Swedish beaches, if you're bored and would like something else to read. Clicky Clicky

  1. I adore Aristocrats in spite of some flaws! Here's hoping for a few rainy days!

  2. It sounds like you have many pleasurable hours planned watching some of the all time best period movies. They should provide inspiration. Enjoy!

  4. Thanks Ladies! Turns out the "Swedish Summer" (and some stubbornness) returned and I finally got to finish the Aristocrats and I watched Under the Greenwood Tree. Yay!

    Leah: now that I finally have my motivation I will be sewing and finishing my 1810s gown. I just went to Copenhagen for the day and saw a fabulous 1810-15 gown with AWESOME sleeves! So I'm excited now! :)
