My weekend was very intense but satisfying. I left sunny Stockholm on Saturday and arrived under very grey skies of Göteborg 4 hours later. We still have snow outside our house - in Göteborg there was spring in the air. Strange how, just a few hours away, the climate is quite different.
I was in Göteborg to work, so on Sunday, I held a small book case/box workshop at Rum för Papper. I brought out my camera too late, we were wrapping things up, so no-one's longer at the table... Must get better shots next time. On Monday night I was back in the shop, holding an "inspirational evening" for a company. They made a small handstitched book each.
Sunday evening was spent with Birgitta in her home on the island of Hönö. She's a wonderful textile artist. We got to know each other when she attended one of my bookbinding workshops at HDK. She's working on an art project and I'm to design a booklet about it. The project involves weaving - a new world to me.
On the other side of the world, my brother left Tokyo with an unreal feeling. He made it back to Sweden on Sunday night and I was very happy to see him again, on Monday. There are no words to express my feelings for the Japanese people. But my thoughts are with you.
