This Summer I have not been visiting many fleamarkets, eventhough I really enjoy it a lot. So when I finally deceide one Saterday morning, today is the day I bike to my favorite fleamarket in Copenhagen, located behind the cityhall of Frederiksberg.
That Saterday I'm so lucky. I have just went into the market, passing a couple of stalls and I saw a woman selling white in white embroidery. It was so amazing. Lots of finely made doilies, napkins with edges in bobbinlace, another napkin with different kinds of embroidery stitches. The woman told me her Grandmother had passed away and that she had made all these beautiful handmade items.

When I walked further on I were lucky again. On a table was a litlle box and inside it, it was full of bobbinlace samples. The woman here told me she was selling all these beauties for an old woman at the age of 85, who had been making bobinlace all her life. How lucky were I. It was like Christmas evning, but the weather was beautiful and sunny.

Later this year I have signed up for bobbinlace classes, which I look so much forward to.  Since I was a girl I have always loved working with my hands and my Grandmother taught me bobbinlace when I was 14 years, today I'm 40. So this class will be like going back in memory of the evenings when I was sitting with my Grandmother in her home. She helping me to make the spiders web, this I still remember so clearly.

Two beautiful bobbinlace samples. The one in the detail is really special, as there is an extra thick thread in the lace. I hope to be able to make this kind of bobbinlace one day.
Not sure if this is bobbinlace, but it's so beautiful, also with an extra thick thread to highlight the design.

 Another beauty. In the detail you can see the small leaves on top of the bobbinlace. Really special.
 Two very fine doilies in bobbinlace.
This doily is extra special. It seems to me like it's a combination of very fine bobbinlace and more thicker croche.

 Different edges on napkins.

A very fine bobbinlace.

I'm mostly into all these old vintage bobbinlace designs. Eventhough many people today experiment with different kinds of patterns, things to hang up, I like this kind of bobbinlace. Perhaps because it reminds me of me Grandmother.



This is a little bit of playing around with sizes and scaling of images, as my blog is being redesigned a bit........



When visiting Berlin I went to the Aquarium and there I saw the most amazing jellyfish. The structures, colors, patterns ... everything was fantastic.
The way they were moving when swimming up was fantastic to look at. I'm so much in love with the lines.

These were amazing too. Like x-ray or ...

I share my studio with Marianne Johnstad-Møller, a knitdesigner who have been inspired by the jellyfish. She has knitted the most amazing light objects.
