Mid Weekly Quirkologies

Aw, it has been a full week since I wrote something over here. In that time I have been:

1. Fascinated by Marimekko fabrics:

I really like the colour composition, history and decoration of Marimekko fabrics and goods (more info here). The quintessentially recognisable motives are being sold on clothes, fabrics, homewear, mugse (etc) and in collaborations with other brands. E.g. They have been collaborating with H&M before, and I still have a tshirt from that collection. Also, Marimekko had a recent collaboration with Converse.

Not really related to that, but somewhat, I would love to be able to manage a sewing machine, so I can create something clothes-like with Marimekko-fabrics and other quirky fabrics.

2. Shocked by the unsummery upheaval of the news.

I am not going into details because most of you know what has been going on. I still decide to focus on the lovely things in the news (there are still lovely things) and learn from the shocking things.

I've always love Merrimekko - so bright and cheery.
