I learned a new game last weekend! It is called kongespil or kubb. The goal of the game is to knock over wooden blocks on the opposing side by throwing wooden batons at them, and then knock the "king" over, before the opponent does.
It is a so cool game. I absolutely love it and look forward to playing again! :)
Taking pictures of food I cooked seems to be my new obsession.
Anyway, I enjoyed another sunny and productive day in Copenhagen on Monday. I spent some time studying Danish at home, washing laundry, trying new quiche recipe, sunbathing in Nyhavn, and eating the best ice cream in the city. And before my regular Danish classes started, I also made it to a super interesting lecture at Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (CIID).
The lecture was called Networking Nature and was hold by an Italian couple from the design office Studiomobile. I was pretty impressed by their eco-urban concepts and their believes in the adaptation to climate changes.
They designed different ecosystems living off seawater in the past years. Their biggest experimental project is called Jellyfish Barge. It is a nomadic public space for farming built with recycled materials and low cost technologies. It would be so cool, if these floating islands would be produced in developing countries, don't you think?
The spring and my boyfriend inspire me!
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?
