Even if I have been back in Sweden since the beginning of August, I still haven't left USA in my thoughts…have had a really wonderful time… :)
 
Since I came home I have been busy busy… Didn't even have time to think of the jet lag …
first up visitors from France…cousins on visit… It was fun even if it was too short!!
 
Molly dressed up …in Viktors OLD handmade pearl necklaces…Too cute..:0)
 
Helping Petra and Jimmy in their new apartment with putting up wallpaper

Love Jimmys monster shoes... :)

 
A whole day at IKEA…shopping…Petra and Jimmy for their apartment… Viktor for his room…that finally were going to be upgraded from child room to teenage room!!

Viktors room BEFORE!!!

 
So putting up wallpaper in Viktors room…painting… sewing new curtains…Fun fun…and then seeing the final result and having a happy teenager… That is reward enough!!!

Thanks Jimmy for supervising the assembly!!

 
In all this I started Garden Rehab … Part two…
 
With all what that means…
But everything have been OK…been tired… Feels just that I haven't landed yet… 😉
 
Decided that I really NEED to do something about my sewing!!
So the first part was to REALLY declutter the sewing room…the room really needed some help…
Because of all the painting and redoing of first the downstairs…and Viktors room…in some kind of strange way things just have been carried upstairs and left there…and yes I do have my sewing room there… 😉
 
So I started this… when Petra and Jimmy left for vacation in Turkey….and that is what I have been doing for almost two and a half week!!! GOSH! I am throwing away my old life…at least it feels like that… :)
A lot of stuff have been taken to REPRIS ( the recycle store) and a lot have been driven to the dump!!
 
Don't know when I will be finished…it's going so SLOW… Have come to the fabrics…sigh…
 
So I have been thinking… I might sell some of it…maybe put up an FOR SALE page on the blog…
This one will probably be only in Swedish… Well I don't know… :)
I don't know if anyone will be interested… But better if it comes to use and since I have changed style from Country to more brights..I will probably not use them for a long time!
 
So this is what I am doing today… ( and some more days…hopefully!!)
DECLUTTERING!!

How fast doesn't days go…it's crazy…
 
Days are filled with rehab days and I try to squeeze in some sewing
And well what can I say about that…
it's very little…
can't seem to start sewing at afternoon and evening…
 
So I will have to change my days if its possible…
start with sewing …right!!! :)
 
All I have managed to do is to sew on some pieces to my
Scrappy happy Cheri !!
 
And got stuck again…so how to proceed now…
what to do???
 
Ideas…???
 
Two large trees have been “cut” down just to get in some more sun
Thankfully the trees fell in the right direction!!
 
Weather have been colder and much more rainy than in May/June…
perfectly normal Swedish summer…:)
 
That was a little from my place in the world…
will continue to ponder over my scraps:)
Hmmm…
