Biorn and me went to Stockholm last week. We did some shopping in the Old Town on Thursday and I managed to get some gilded leather for an intarsia project I’ve been planning. On Friday Biorn went to “Hobbymässan” and I took the opportunity to visit the Museum of National Antiquities. I was very curious to see the Bread and Buns exibition, but was really disappointed. It supposedly was a family exhibition but it was hardly anything for someone over the age of ten to experience…

On the other hand I spend considerable time in the Textile Chamber and took photos and made notes of the intasia work on display. Look here for an example. In the end I had a great time.

We also made a quick stop at the temporary Museum of Medieval Stockholm, mainly to look in the museum shop. Picked up a copy of Gerry Embletons Medieval Military Costume – great book with fantastic photos.
