An urge to try something new!

I took this picture outside the Tyovaenopisto. I hope it shows that I am top of a hill on one side of the river. Way in the distance you can see the Turku art museum on the top of another hill. Our apartment is near the art museum.

I took these pictures through the glass display window at the tyovaenopisto. This class is being offered in March. It looks like crochet, but must be different because it was invented by a woman who lived on the Aland Islands. Look at this link. You will get some idea of the beauty of this craft. I might sign up for the class although I was warned it would be taught in Finnish.

Here is another link about this art form. You can see why I am so intrigued.
