The first spring flower

@

Snowbells are amazing. I´m fascinated by how they are able to live in the battle between winter and spring, peeking up from the snow. Beautiful.

Easter bunny arrive early

Hehe, I just love this, don't you too? :) I have seen a lot of cool easter photos, and a few with a real bunny too, but I had seen none with SNOW in them, so I figured I´d give it a go.

I asked our kindergarten if I could borrow their rabbit as my model, and was half terrified that I would scare off the rabbit into the woods forever. So I took snacks and an assistant with me and gave it a go.

The rabbit was super calm, and my pre-arranged basket looked great.

I started to sew in sheepskin in 2009, and have made several blankets since. This was used as a duna in the past and everyone had one, for life. Its made of several sheepskins, and it's printed with ancient symbols that strand for protection, love, and fruitfulness. I use about 15-20 hours sewing by hand, with a double linen thread, the two -skin ones, and about 35 hours on the big ones with 4 skins. Its hard work and I often have to use a pair of pliers and a "drop" to get the needle thru!

So I held a little "vote" on my instastory whether or not to make more ice crowns, and since most of you said YES; I figured it's not just me who likes this! :) hehe, So I went out to pick icicles, and make more crowns :)

I pick them either in a frozen waterfall or of the roof of building at the farm. I make them freeze in the shape I want using this little flowerpot and snow+ cold water in the bottom.
