A book full of happiness and finesse
Kajsa's book ended up in my mailbox. I have been waiting for it to come ever since the day Kajsa wrote on her blog, that a book was a new and exiting project of her's.
I have admired Kajsa's work and read her blog for a long time.
To me there is a handful of people on the internet, who truely has rocked my world with their work, personality and never ending creativity. Kajsa is one of them...
I remember how thrilled I were when I saw her things for the very first time. Her wonderful pillows, quilts, houses, Tomter, cat pouches, bags and much more immidiately made me smile and at the same time, I loved how obvious it was that Kajsa made her things with such care and meticulousness.
And now we all get the possibility to read about it and make some of Kajsa's things from her new book.
The book is very well written and illustrated by lovely photos. I like how words and pictures have been put together, and it leaves the reader extremely inspired and well equipped for sewing and trying out the variuos techniques Kajsa uses in her work.
Last but not least I appriciate that the book gives you a fine and personal impression of the person behind it.
Need I say that I love Scandinavian Stitches??
