Amazing already in the middle of April, the time flies…but I have acomplished several tasks.
I finished my Circle of Life, 31 circles for the month of January, and interesting challenge of The Welcome Mat, that put us to work!
It was fun for each day I had to think what to do, and this is the result, I even have a golden circle in there!
Also Wanda Kerr from The Welcome Mat gave us a pattern “The Moon and the Tree” and guided us through the process of doing night time with a moon and the reflections on the river and the tree, not so easy but it was fun!
Now I am working on a Night Lady, in two colors, a design of my daughter Anne-Marie. She was doing a painting of her, and I said, I want to do that in rug hooking. It is not finished but I am working hard to finish it to take it to Cedar Lakes Rug Hooking Camp in May.
It is not finished, it needs the border, which is going to be light blue, and then I have to think how to frame it! I loved to make this one because as you can see there are variations of blue and yellow, and it is amazing how much contrasts you can do with the wool!
Also I started to work in needle felting again, it was so much fun. The Weavers Guild had a Challenge called FOTOFOCUS, where you had to make a piece of art, in fiber, from any picture. I did The cat in the Jar, from a photography of Zoe, my grandaughter .It is her little cat in a painted jar in Margarita Venezuela, where they use to live. This and Isabella’s portrait, in rug hooking, are hanging at the Guild.
So it has been productive months, I am really happy for that!
Here I am posting some of the pictures of our School of Fish Show at the CCAC. It was really good, we had 165 visitors on the Opening! Thank you so much to all that went, and to all the artists.
There were fishes of all kind of media, wood, hooked, punched, stitched, quilted…..you name it! As you can see it was so much fun, we are very happy with the results!
We hope to have another show soon!
The show is almost here! we have so many new fishes, all of them so cool, it is going to be a wonderful experience to see them all together. The space at the CCAC is big, so it will be so good!
I hope to see you all there! By the way, the fish on the card is my FISH DECO, I think it came out good. Come and see it in person!
2013!! Amazing how the time flies, and how many things we have to acomplish this year!
We are starting with a new SCHOOL OF FISH show at the CCAC,Clifton Cultural Art Center, here in Cincinnati on February 21st. We have been”swimming” a lot since last year. First we were at Xavier University,after that at our main gallery at the Loveland Art Studios on Main, here in Loveland. In November we had the show at the Weavers Guild of Greater Cincinnati, we had very good comments then. And now to the CCAC!
The good thing is that each time new fishes have been added to the collection, so it is really wonderful! We have many surprises for this one!
Other than that I have been working hard specially with my rug hooking, I want to have a good selection to see if I can set it up some where in a Gallery, who knows!
Also I joined a challenge at The Welcome Mat,The Circle of Life,a circle a day, during january. It means that I have to fit 31 circles in my rug…I am having so much fun,because each day a start a new one that I had not decided how, what color,what size..it is like building up a LEGO toy!
So I am happy doing what I do,glad that I dont have to go outside today specially, it is 7 F!
This is my Deco fish!

Again we are almost in summer, it is late May , where did it go? I suposse that as I am busy it goes more quickly, so be it!
Just returned from Cedar Lakes Rug Hooking Camp at Ripley, WV.Wonderful place, all green and peaceful. We had a very good teacher, Marjorie Duizer, from Canada. She really did well with us, we even dyed with food color! We worked hard,and learned different techniques of finishing the rugs borders, interesting. We had also new hookers so it was fun!
The summer came and went…the fall is here, beautiful colors, rainy days, lots of work done, many projects……….what else can I ask for?
The summer was hot in Madrid, I visited my daughter Maria Teresa and her family and spent good times with them. Went visiting Museums, parks, and also we went to Galicia, to the beach, but it was cold! After that Maria Teresa came back with me to Cincinnati where she spent one month meeting her brothers and sister who had not been together in 10 years! So it was really wonderful to have almost everybody here! She is a painter,Anne-Marie my oldest is an artist also, and just moved to Cincinnati, so we spent many hours in my basement doing art the three of us, wonderful!
This months has been wonderful, we had a workshop with Martina Celerin (www.martinacelerin.com) at the Weavers Guild, we had three wonderful days working in a 3D project! The on the 19 we went to Lancaster PN, to the ATHA Biennal Rug Hooking meeting, where more than 500 people met. I took two classes. The first with Judy Carter , doing a tigers eye, interesting and difficult, but I will complete it soon. The second class was with Pris Buttler, about Gustav Klimt’s work, lots of colors there! I learned a lot and enjoyed both classes.
We came home to work hard as we have the 2011 Fiber Arts Sale of the Weavers Guild in november and also Winterfair, so I am doing my best to get everything done!
This month is also the Breast Cancer Brick Auction, (www.breastcancerbricks.org) where I participated as well . I was also invited to the SecretArtWorks (www.artworkscincinnati.org ) this year, so I sent my piece for the exhibition which will take place on friday, november 18,2011 . So I have been pretty busy as you can see.
Also we had the visit of our dear friend from El Salvador , Maria Elena Trabanino, with whom we spent several days weaving and hooking, a pleasure!
So what else can I ask for…… beautiful family, good friends, a lot of work that I enjoy……..
So I have to say ……. enjoy life!

El verano llegó y se fue … el otoño esta aquí, hermosos colores, días de lluvia, un montón de trabajo hecho, muchos proyectos … … …. ¿Qué más puedo pedir?
El verano fue caluroso en Madrid, visité a mi hija María Teresa y su familia y pase buenos momentos con ellos. Visitamos museos, parques, y también fuimos a Galicia, a la playa, pero hacía frío! Después María Teresa regresó conmigo a Cincinnati, donde pasó un mes con sus hermanos y hermana ya que no se habían reunido en 10 años! Así que fue realmente maravilloso tener casi todo el mundo aquí! Ella es pintora y Anne-Marie mi hija mayor es artista también, y se mudó a Cincinnati recientemente, así que pasamos muchas horas en mi sótano haciendo arte, maravilloso!
Este mes ha sido buenisimo.Tuvimos un taller con Martina Celerin (www.martinacelerin.com) en el Weavers Guild of Greater Cincinnati, tuvimos tres días de trabajo en un proyecto en 3D, riquisimo! El 19 fuimos a Lancaster PN, en la reunión de ATHA Biennal, donde más de 500 personas se dieron cita. Tomé dos clases. La primera con Judy Carter, haciendo el ojo de un tigre, interesante y difícil, pero lo voy a terminar pronto. La segunda clase fue con Pris Buttler, sobre la obra de Gustav Klimt, montones de colores maravillosos! Aprendi muchisimo y disfrute un monton en las clases.
Luego volvimos a casa a trabajar duro ya que tenemos en noviembre, el 2011 Fiber Arts Sale en el Weavers Guild of Greater Cincinnati y también Winterfair, por lo que estoy trabajando duro para producir!
Este mes también es la Subasta de los Breast Cancer Bricks (www.breastcancerbricks.org) en el que también participo. Asi mismo me invitaron a la SecretArtWorks (www.artworkscincinnati.org) este año, así que envié mi pieza para la exposición que tendrá lugar el viernes, Noviembre 18,2011. Como ven he estado bastante ocupada .
También tuvimos la visita de nuestra querida amiga de El Salvador, María Elena Trabanino, con quien pasamos varios días tejiendo en el telar que me presto mi amiga Ruthie y haciendo rug hooking en nuestro estudio en Loveland.
Entonces, qué más puedo pedir … ..una bella familia, buenos amigos, un montón de trabajo que me encanta … … ..
Así que tengo que decir … …. disfruten de la vida!
April and May, good months
Long time since I wrote. We are in June already, we did not see much of a spring, and now it is hot, nice! We need the sun to charge the batteries!
Many things have happened . I have a piece in the show FACES AND FORMS IN FIBER, of the members the WGGC, in the YWCA Womens Gallery, in Walnut St, interesting show, because there we can see all kinds of ways to use the fiber, and also gave us the opportnity to see the work of many of our friends at the Guild, which we dont see very often, we had a good time!
Also Charlotte Davis and I worked together, in a project for the GREENPIECE show, at the Weavers Guild, this spring. We made a Dalahast, a horse from Dalecarlia, which is the icon of Sweden. It was so much fun to make it. We bought a rocking horse from GOODWILL, and used many wool sweaters Charlotte has collected over the years, that she felted ,disambled and made the body of the horse, as well as the grass. I rug hooked the saddle and other ornaments with wool fabric. We really met the out lines of the show: green and/or recycled fibers! I also have in that exhibition my EXOTIC FRUITS rug, that I hooked with different kinds of recycled materials like silk, wool fabric, wool yarn, fleece, t-shirt and cotton fabric, all hooked together with the green! It was fun to see how the different materials can be hooked, quite an experience!
The first week of May, we went to Cedar lakes Rug Hooking Camp, at Ripley, WV. This was my third year there. It is a beautiful location, many hookers, wonderful teachers. I took a class with Anne Boissonot, a wonderful person, who is really good in colors. I took my MORROCOYES designed by Anne-Marie, my daughter, which has a lot of color! It was fun to see how the color came together! it is almost done by now, I am very happy with it. We spent a week at Cedar Lakes, I met nice people. We had a show of 140 rugs, which were one more beautiful than the other, it was really something! Nancy Blair, and her daughter Kati, really made our lifes happy with all the beautiful stuff they had at the store and all the good organization of the event.
Now we are preparing a show HOT HOT HOT , at Sharonville Art Center, at the beginning of july, I hope that it will be good!
I am very happy because in the beginning of july I am leaving for Spain, to visit my other daughter, Maria Teresa and her family, I am going to spend two months. I am planning to go to Valencia and Barcelona, to visit Gaudi, I will tell you later!
Also at the end of august, finally, my daughter Anne-Marie, her husband Tadeo, and Zoe my granddaughter, are coming to Cincinnati, Mateo her son is already here ,to live.It is wonderful to have almost all of them here. I feel like a Mama Hen !
Have a nice summer…enjoy life……make art!!!

The 2011 is here already, and January is almost ending, amazing how time flies! I have been working hooking my Life Rug, the last weeks because I want to show it in our Loveland Art Fiber Show in March. What is it all about my rug……..Well I decided I wanted to put my story in a rug , so when I was in Margarita in 2009, Anne-Marie, my daughter and I, worked in the design of it. It was not until I went to a workshop in Cedar Lakes Rug Camp, in May 2010 ,with Susan Feller, that I really started it. She helped me with the final design, the colors, so off I went!
It is divided in four parts and has an orange road, my life road, that divides it. From botton to top: the first part is Sweden, which is my ancesters place, I was born there . I wanted a forest with birchs, and a red little cabin, because my Mom just loved them! A Dalahast, which is an orange painted wooden horse that is the symbol of Sweden, a Swedish flag , a Santa Lucia .My parents are going to be there too, the last two, are going to be done in in punchneedle., this is in process.
The second part is my life in Venezuela, where I grew up, there you can see Caracas, with its big mountain, the Avila, and the city under it. At the bottom right you can see a church and some plantations, were we used to live. To the right in a circle is a sunset at the Orinoco River, in Mapire, a small town where we spend many summers as a family, beautiful place. On the left circle is the beach, where I spend as a child, every weekend, my father loved it!
As we continue my life road, orange of course, we get to the third part: my family and friends. Where my heart is. The big circles, represent my four kids, with their families, in process, and it is going to be done in punchneedle. The small dots represent my numerous friends from all times.
The upper part of the rug, quite unfinish, is my creative life, you can see me in the bend of the road walking to it! There is going to be a piece of weaving that I made, that represents my long time in weaving, imagine over 30 years, since I learned it in Sweden!. There is also going to be a hook, representing my actual work, most of the rug is rug hooked, a roll of yarn, and also want to have something representing the Loveland Artist Studios on Main, I am still working on it.
So as you can see I am almost there, it has been really fun to make it, I am still working on it. Here you can see some of the pictures of the rug in process, hope that you like it!
El 2011 ya está aquí, y enero ya casi termina, increíble cómo pasa el tiempo! He estado trabajando en rug hooking haciendo el tapiz de Mi Vida durante las últimas semanas porque quiero mostrarlo en la exposicion Loveland Fiber Art Show en marzo. . ¿De que se trata mi alfombra .?……. Bueno, decidí que quería contar mi historia en una alfombra, así que cuando estaba en Margarita en el 2009, Anne-Marie mi hija ,y yo, trabajamos en el diseño de la misma. No fue hasta que fui a un taller en Cedar Lake Rug Hooking Camp , en mayo del 2010, con Susan Feller, que realmente empece. Ella me ayudó con el diseño final y los colores de las lanas a usar.
Se divide en cuatro partes y tiene un camino de color naranja,el camino de la vida, que lo divide. De abajo hacia arriba: la primera parte es Suecia, el lugar de mis antepasados, donde nací .Yo quería un bosque con abedules, y una pequeña casa roja, porque mi mamá amaba esos sitios! Un Dalahast, que es un caballo de madera color naranja que es el símbolo de Suecia, una bandera sueca, una Santa Lucía. Mis padres van a estar allí también, ambos circulos los voy a hacer en punchneedle., esto esta en proceso.
La segunda parte es mi vida en Venezuela, donde me crié. Allí se puede ver a Caracas, con su gran montaña, el Ávila, y la ciudad a sus faldas.. En la parte inferior derecha se puede ver una iglesia y unas plantaciones, donde vivíamos. A la derecha en un círculo hay una puesta de sol sobre el río Orinoco, en Mapire, un pequeño pueblo donde pasamos muchos veranos ,un lugar muy bonito. En el círculo de la izquierda esta la playa, donde pase mi infancia, cada fin de semana, a mi papa le encantaba!
A medida que continua mi camino de la vida, naranja por supuesto, llegamos a la tercera parte: mi familia y mis amigos. Donde está mi corazón. Los círculos grandes, representan mis cuatro hijos, con sus familias, en proceso, los voy a hacer en punchneedle. Los pequeños puntos representan a mi numerosos amigos de todos los tiempos y sitios.
La parte superior de la alfombra, no terminada, es mi vida creative. Me pueden ver en la curva de la carretera ! Hay un tejido que hice, que representa mi tiempo en el tejido, imaginen más de 30 años, desde que lo aprendi en Suecia!. También va haber un “hook”,un gancho, que representa mi trabajo actual, la mayor parte de la alfombra esta hecha en” rug hooking”,. Va a haber un rollo de lana, y también quiero poner algo que represente el Loveland Artist Studios on Main, donde tenemos nuestro Estudio, pero aun esta sin terminar.
Así que como pueden ver estoy casi allí, ha sido muy divertido hacerlo, sobre todo ir recordando diferentes etapas de mi vida. Aquí hay algunas fotos de la alfombra en proceso, espero que les guste!
OCTOBER already!!!! what happened? SEPTEMBER just rushed by, too bad! Well actually, we had a good september, Anne-Marie and I worked a lot for the Loveland Art Show, we had a good time, she sold some big pieces, good!, and I also sold my “olive” bag, it is beautiful, but a lot of work, my friend Debbie helped me with the lining, because I am not good at sewing, so I hope that the lady enjoys it! I also sold some of my weavings, which is good, because I am at that again, thanks to my friend Ruthie, she lended me a wonderful loom, it is so good to have such good and talented friends! We had our Second Saturday as usual, wher we had the exhibition IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY, where Anne-Marie, Zoe and Mateo showed their art, many people liked it! The wednesday meetings, where we exchange ideas, talk about challenges, really fun. Our friend from El Salvador, Maria Elena Trabanino,visited us at the Studio and showed us her beautiful weavings dyed with indigo and other natural products. Anne-Marie had two classes at our Studio, Gold and Silver Leafing and Colot Embossing, they really enjoyed working with the metals and the colors. It was a good month1
OCTUBRE esta aqui! que paso con SEPTIEMBRE…….paso volando!!! en realidad Anne-Marie y yo trabajamos un monton para el Loveland Art Show, ella vendio unas piezas grandes y yo vendi mi cartera en rug hooking, que ME quedo linda, pero dio mucho trabajo, menos mal que mi amiga Debbie me ayudo con el forro! Tambien vendi algunas de mis piezas tejidas en telar, pues estoy tejiendo de nuevo, rico, gracias a Ruthie mi amiga que me presto un telarcito buenisimo, que bueno es tener amigas asi! Tuvimos nuestro acostumbrado Second Saturday , donde tuvimos la exposicion IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY, de Anne-Marie, Zoe y Mateo, quedo muy linda, le gusto mucho a la gente. Las reuniones de los miercoles, con las amigas , donde discutimos nuevos proyectos, tecnicas, eventos, muy sabroso realmente.

March 26, 2010
The new year began, with a lots of snow and lots of new classes to attend, which is what I like to do, learn new things!!! I went to Fox Cottage in Dayton to Susan Fellers FRAKTURS class, wonderful, there we began talking about designs, and actually drawing them, it was awsome!!! My swedish background is coming back as a grow older, amazing, I am interested in old scandinavian designs, so that I did, I drew up a flower with rich borders, it is not done yet, and I will put my parents letters in it, is a tribute to them, I am very excited about it! I will put a picture as soon as I am more advanced.
I also made a Dalahast, which is the small red wooden horse that is a symbol of Sweden, it is also in its way to be finish, both pieces are in rug hooking, I love it!!!
Ahora es espanol!!! Estoy en una nota de my “suequidad”, de repente me interese en disenos de 1700-1800 escandinavos, asi que fui a una clase de FRAKTURS en Fox Cottage en Dayton, con una profesora, Susan Feller, que es una maravilla, nos puso a disenar nuestras alfombras, y salio una flor de esa epoca ,en la parte de abajo tiene un corazon con los colores de la bandera de Suecia, pero, los bordes, anchos y ricos en color, por alguna razon misteriosa, tienen el amarillo, azul y rojo de nuestra bandera venezolana, creo que tenia que ser asi!, en la parte de abajo van las iniciales de mi Papa y mi Mama, con el monograma de mis dos apellidos, Nalsen Hasselblad, es un tributo para ellos, estoy trabajando en eso, me encanta, es en rug hooking, y uso lanas de colores lindos, ya la veran cuando este mas avanzada!
Tambien me dio por hacer un Dalahast, que es el caballito rojo de madera que es el simbolo de Suecia, me esta quedando lindo, ya les ensenare cuando este listo! Tambien es en rug hooking!

I was born in Sweden, but grew up in Venezuela, so I speak both Swedish and Spanish. I learned how to weave in Sweden in the early 80′s, and went back to Venezuela and taught weaving and tapestry to children in a private school in Caracas and worked my weaving at the Taller Waleker, in El Hatillo, Caracas. Also did teaching in some of the Art Schools. I have participated in various shows and exhibitions in Venezuela over the years. Since 2002 I have been coming regularly to Cincinnati, and I am living here permanently since 2008. I joined the Weavers Guild of Greater Cincinnati, and started working in rug hooking and punch needle. On April 2009, Teresa Nieberding and I started our Studio at the Loveland Artist Studios on Main where we work , teach and share our experiences with our fiber art friends. I have participated in exhibitions at the Salveo Gallery , the TRILLIUM Art Show , the Civic Garden Center,the Loveland Artist Studios on Main, recently in the Loveland Art Show, as well as Fiber Art Sale at the Weavers Guild athe Winter Fair and the Secret ArtWorks. This year I was nominated as one of the Top 100 Secret Artists of 2009, from the ArtWorks in Cincinnati, so I participated in the exhibition EXPOSED: Top 100 Secret Artists of 2009. I also had my work shown at the Breast Cancer Bricks Auction in Cincinnati.
