Kopenhagen medieval market with alex!
I was chocked to see how big this market is! There wasnt alot of information about it so i took a chance going there but its the biggest one I´ve been to jet! The market is divided into parts; viking, medieval and fantasy and in the end there is a tournament and fighting place.
Ps. The closest pizzeria is amazing! Real Italian pizza, not like the swedish pizza.. :D

Spring= Tent and furniture fixing

 Making a new table for the tent. For this I went and bought the widest boards they had. Its pine and lucky for me it had rain on the last they had so they were a little gray wich i liked but I also got a good price for them because of that. I put them together with just two ribs across underneath with screws.  For the stain I used:
2/3 linseed oil
1/1 terpentine
and a splash of tar
black iron oxide
red iron oxide (i think..not sure..)



The legs are antique that I traded me. They are cutted into two so this is one half. The only thing I did to them was put som linseed oil/terpentine mix to preserv them. It really brought them back to life.
I love, love, love, the spring!! The nature is exploating with energi and everything comes to life. The flowers are blooming, you can start to smell everything again after the winter and the gras and trees has a strong green tint to them.

My Allium are blooming, soon to be a big beautiful round purple flower.

 And finally som fixing on the tent. Had to sew some seems around the edges that i had left.
 
 When I sew outside, on a tent for example, I like to use this sewing machine. It would suprise you how strong it is. You can sew anything from clothing to thick layers of tent fabric. We also have a similar one with electricity that also is good for tents.
