It´s all about the label

I´ve been thinking of buying labels for a long time but it never happened due to I did not know what they would say. When I finally decided I wanted my name and DIY in some combination but when I was ordering this came into my mind and I like it a lot.I wanted to avoid the word "design" mainly becourse to over use an I´m more of a copycat. Malmö is the town where I live, Skåne is like the county and Världen means the world.

There where different options in color and styles and you could add little motives like a sheep too. They came like this and they look really really good as you can see in the first photo.

My chemo is over and I´m waiting for radiation to start and then a plan to go back to work.
The day after my fifth chemo my mother had a stroke so I´ve spent a lot of time at my parents house. She was transfered from the hospital thursday and is now at a nursing home there she will get proper training and we hope that she´ll be home before the summer is over. It´s a little hard to explain the swedish system here but the home care system is very good and they will get help to make changes in the house so she can access at least the bathroom with a wheelchair ( in the beginning) and hopefully later a walker.
She is improving all the time and saturday she could for the firts time squeese the right hand...

The facts that you need less clothes if you don´t work and that I´ve been away from home for a lot of time makes sewing-knitting-etc low. I´ve been knitting socks for fall and this is really not my thing and the ones I finished yesterday will have to be frogged.
What I really want to do is try the Jalie method of binding knits and the first weekend of august I´m going to a sewingcamp and hopefully I have some ideas of what I would like to wear this fall by then.

I am sorry to hear of your mother's stroke - I hope all will be well with her.
But I am very glad to hear of your own progress and I love those new labels,
