The spring and my boyfriend inspire me! embroidered notebook-004

My boyfriend recorded some music for his new CD in February. We discussed the name and the design of the album a lot. One of the idea was On the wings of story. I liked it and I got an idea to create an embroidered notebook that we could photograph and use for the cover.

I am not sure if we will use it but it doesn't actually matter. :) I played with embroidered motifs and with colours and I created two more notebooks.

How to do it:

First of all you need some notebook. I bought mine in Tiger, 3pcs for 10 DKK. Drew your motif on the notebook. Make small holes with a pin in it and embroider.

Isn't it just lovely to see your plants growing?

The beginning of March: I enjoyed the first rays of spring sun and planted some herbs, radishes, and pumpkin seeds.

April: All plants except pumpkins are growing. Hurray! But I'm little bit worried about their future. I tried to grown some herbs last year, but the were weak and died after two or three months. Any idea how to care for plants now?

The Beauty of Vestamager

Vestamager



Vestamager aka Kalvebod Fælled is a huge green area on the west part of the Amager island. It lies 0-2 meters below sea level. It used to serve as an artillery training zone. It was dammed and drained during the War World 2.

Nowadays, it is a family friendly place. It can be reached very easily by metro (Vestamager station). There is a small natural centre with a cosy restaurant few meters from the metro station. It is a great starting point for your walking/biking tours. The natural centre offers a wide range of education programs for children. You can also hire a bike there (I will definitely do this next time) or buy some wood to make your very own fire and to roast sausages or fruits.

The area is flat and a bit windy. And you can see many sheep, horses, and birds while exploring it. :)

And if you are interested in architecture, you shouldn't miss the 8tallet. It's an amazing complex of flats!

Anyway, I like the area very much. I hope, I will have time to go there soon again (with a bike and a picnic curve ;-). Have you already been to Vestamager? Or what is your favourite place for picnics in Copenhagen area?
