What a summer we have had…it beats everything…it’s like being abroad…on a vacation by the Mediterranean Sea! Can’t even remember having had temps below 20 C (actually 25C)…and this is VERY VERY unusual… can’t complain on not having enough sun this summer 😜

But first…had one more cute little finish I quite quickly made to my surprise! Got this Toy Ball 2 Trio pattern by Lina’s Patchwork from Shirley.

Stella is now gripping for things so I made a little gift for her on her 4 months day.

Scraps I have lots, so it was an easy pick for Stella that loves orange (right now 😍)

Hand sewing …how I have missed you! It was so much fun…and having my sweetest companion close as usual..I sewed these little pieces together quickly!

Voila! A little little CUTE ball!! I’m quite proud of myself..actually 😜

Stella 4 months…already…and when writing this…she’s on to her 5 month…it’s crazy how quick time flies!Summer..yes…how I have enjoyed my balcony life…these are som pics from Instagram showing our incredible summer and some sweet memories.

Reading, both day and night (thanks to our light nights), the warm days and warm nights (can’t remember sitting outside so late and not freeze), crochet and sweet family times with game night playing outside and cuddling with Stella. Just incredible! I have enjoyed it, know there are downsides with all the fires and other horrible things happening. But in my little space on earth ..it have been good. Even headaches have been away!

Lavender and Geraniums…💗💗💗 …happiness!

And this little cutie! Even more happiness…💗I even had myself a glass of wine this summer! Was ages ago! So cheerio…

see you soon!

I did sew in June..promise I did! 😜

First I finished my secret project…can show soon!

And then I sewed on my Happy Pincushion Organiser pattern that soon is for sale! Yay!!

Test sewed a few ones …and the more I sew..the more I want to make…I can’t stop!

I have worked on this pattern for ages ..and are tweaking and tweaking adding this and that…but think I call it done soon!

Made new logos to use at the front of the pattern and I’m happy with them… boy this takes time! I’m no pro so it’s a lot of thinking on HOW to do before it’s actually is done..trial and error as well!

Two pincushions were sent to friends…one to Louise and one to Shirley…pink ones both of them. Happy to have pink loving friends 💗💖💗😜

I also made an attempt of making a bag for Shirley…a Weebraw bag…a pattern by Laura Cunningham…

Me and bags! Well now it also shall be said..I was sick and wasn’t my brightest and sharpest myself…😜 so I made EVERY mistake that could be done…I think!

But a bag it became! Phew!

Not the same size, not how I imagined, not the width it was supposed to be…but hey…it’s a bag and I used up some pretty pretty fabrics…😜

Pretty inside…💗

Think it’s cute!

Someone on Instagram said it was kissing lips …and I have to agree !

I will definitely make some more of this bag…I just need to recover from the making of it! No..I’m just kidding…it was an easy bag to make…it was just me…😜sometimes you just shall walk away from the sewing and not be so stubborn…hmm…think I just said something about my father being stubborn…😉

Now I’m almost caught up… yay to me! So see you soon lovelies 💗

Still catching up…couldn’t let you miss the photo of the cutest midsummer girl!

Midsummer was spent in Arjeplog with my parents so they could see Stella a little bit more…and also to take a look at our family’s old family cradle that had been restored so that Stella could use it.

Need to fix photos of that one!

I made a wreath for Stella to wear on Midsummer Eve. This year it was lots of flowers to chose from, remembering years when only daffodils, or forest flowers were blooming when Linda and Petra was little…

So I was happy finding violets and queen Ann’s lace…

And Stella was the cutest ever wearing her new dress and this wreath on Midsummer eve…

That smile …💗💗💗

Now this Midsummer could have ended with a tradgedy, but happily it didn’t.

My father had a fall into the stream that goes behind the house. He was working with the fence and lost his balance and came under water (very cold). We don’t know for how long he was in the water. But with a a great deal of luck he managed to crawl up and come home. With his balance it was an effort. Water filled boots and mud all over. What makes me mad is that no car stopped and helped him, even if he tried to call their attentions. After a hot shower and lots of blankets, he made a fire and finally stopped shaking… it was a chocking experience.

So we had a HAPPY Midsummer after all! Phew…but that was a close one! Wish my father wasn’t so stubborn!
