Crafty Almhult Market

As most of you know, I've been to the lovely Almhult in Sweden to attend the Crafty Almhult Market at last... Well, it's over already and I had a fabulous time! I just came home yesterday evening, so I'm still unpacking and checking out what I brought home with me... Yes, Scandinavia is a nice place for shopping...

We started of sunny the first morning, but sadly, the sun left us after only a few hours. The weather stayed grey for the rest of the day and the next, but still the atmosphere was happy and fun. There were lots of other Dutch people (even more then Swedish) attending the market and lots of lovely products were sold. I must confess; I didn't take a lot of pictures (as always...), but I will share one of the lovely crafters in a post later this week that really blew my mind for it's loveliness.

I really love this fabric from IKEA. It makes my colors pop out even more. I got lots of responses how my work was making people happy, like you guys always tell me and it was heart warming.

The trip to Almhult went very well, even though I was a little nervous, for it was my first time traveling abroad all on my own. People in Copenhagen and Sweden were very helpful and public transportation was so well organized. The only thing was, my suitcase was heavier than heavy with all that cotton 'candy' inside.

The landscape was unbelievably beautiful and I saw a fox and a deer on the first day. I love to see 'wild life', since in Holland it's very uncommon, at least where I live. I heard a moose too, but didn't get to find it. That would have been awesome!

And naturally I did some crocheting. I designed a little rainbow raindrop garland. Specifics on that will follow sometime in the future...

I wanted to thank you all for your support on the blog and on facebook. You made my trip so much more fun with all your encouragement.

Have a yellow monday!!
