In September I had gone to Sweden to have work experience at a carpet weavers called Märta Måås-Fjetterström in Båstad and in that time I had stayed with my family members, who had not known much of me before hand. My relative Bettan had been such amazing company and had been so motherly to me and even when the week was up and Alan came over to join me, she had been so kind. This card was of the family cat Svea who we all love so much.
Leaving Bettan’s home, we were to settle on our own, and so with the help of our dear friend Kristina Digman, she had managed to find someone willing to rent us their home for the week. So with the rent aside, we had our own little amazing flat with the best view for the week and it was wonderful. Then soon after we went to visit her and her family in Halmstad, where she took us to the forest, cooked and had a great time together. This card is of the kind of mushrooms she had taught us about, you make an amazing teacher.
Finally towards the last few days in Sweden, and with a lot of expensive train journeys passed, we went to see my other relative Boel, who lives in Kungsbacka. She took us to the very hilly forest in her area, where we found lots of delicious mushrooms to take home with us. She accommodated us for the night in her amazing eco-home, where she showed us the wonders in Swedish nature and shared her amazing cooking with us too. This card is for our time in the forest, where I slipped and fell on my butt, but continued to pick the mushrooms where I sat.
All my family and friends were so kind to us on our short trip there, and we felt so grateful to even had the chance to be together for that short time, so here we decided to make something really special to show our thanks, we love you all and thanks so much for everything!
