On my way home

When Spring finally hits Sweden it's just like being in paradise. And walking through these little woods covered in Wood Anemones it's easy to forget I'm in the middle of town!

Happy Easter!


The best thing about muffins are the endless variations you can make. With filling, without filling, with topping, without topping. Then you can vary the filling and the topping! Here are some of my favourite  ones I've baked for our sweet Easter weekend, and it's going to be such a warm and sunny weekend too! Raspberry filling, raspberry creamcheese topping, chocolate topping.

I used the recipe from one of my favourite chefs, the beautiful and happy Leila Lindholm, from Sweden. from one of her books, A Piece of Cake. If you don't know her, let me tell you she makes delicious cakes and the styling in her books and TV programs are so countryside perfect! Check out her website! There is also an English version, if you're not so sure about your Swedish! I saw that her latest book, One More Slice is coming out in the UK, France, Germany, Austria, Denmark, Switzerland, Italy and Finland!

I wish you all a very HAPPY EASTER!

To welcome Spring, a bright bunch of daffs, healthy juicy oranges and a nice cuppa tea!

I'm slowly waking up from my long, dark hibernation and busy with the last term of my studies, finishing my teaching practice and writing my thesis. I haven't been doing any sewing and I don't know when I'll get back to it. But I've bought some more beautiful fabric for other projects. I'll be sharing those with you soon!

This basket of oranges and strong English tea, with the bunch of daffodils was a gift to my teacher where I've been doing my practice. She has given my so much support! And she loves oranges!

I hope that there is still someone out there reading my new blog posts, after this long, but necessary break. I'm looking forward to hearing from you and to reading your always lovely comments!

It's nice to be back!
