Some of you might forgotten already, Christmas came, Christmas went, we live in so called the ‘New Year’, in other words – life goes on. Hope moods areΒ  good on your side.

December was quite lovely, but today is lovely too

Holidays being the thing of the past, I’m slowly getting back to using my free time wisely. Hmmmm. Wiser. Ok, a bit wiser. My book of ideas has got fuller over the last couple of weeks, so there should be, and I only hope there will be, new things made for my shop. I’ve noticed, I have this annoying tendency to speak out too loud before I actually have anything to prove my big words with, so bear with me while I’m looking for ways to improve that πŸ˜‰ New things and those free patterns (don’t remind me how long ago I’ve promissed them to you)… are coming!

So now, I’ve made possibly the last hedgehogs (for a while) Tom, Tim, Ted

Molly still needs to be dressed

Today was a good day, since I’ve managed, at last, to sort out my pictures. My laptop is getting old and although I like a lot of things in life that start with an ‘old’, my computer will have to be an exception. It’s been quite a challenge to not to have my own machine and therefore I ended up with a pile of things neglected… Among many things – no less than 1182 photos to go through which brought me some really lovely memories. So here we go, while you had a break from my blog updates – we had summer:

lot’s of swinging in the woods

and lots of skipping

What I was capturing in a picture below should be rain (or massive rain) that kept on visiting us far too often through out the summer months…

We had mini and wet, but very much appreciated holidays in Wales

two very important birthdays

and one quite big party to hold

We baked and ate …

and really enjoyed it all. Hope you too have some nice summer memories to look back to…

Farm

not mine, Wimpole’s, although the idea of having a goat, chickens, geese and a couple of rabbits doesn’t entirely scare me. I would love to try a peaceful, partly self sustainable way of living. With lots of fresh air, lots of green, greens and lots of happy laughter. And I would definitely like a dog. Or maybe two dogs. Somewhere in South of France… or Italy… Ahh πŸ™‚ Back to the Wimpole farm then.

This place had been visited, by our family, quite a bit in the past, but then we once had a car accident on the way back from the farm. Two years later not much has changed at Wimpole:

a big softie

a typical ‘the grass is greener on the other side’

and this

a ‘blissful’ motherhood. 11 little ones and one poor mom. Respect. For what we saw… nature can be harsh. But then so can we.

Moving on – I’m officially a sole trader (yeahhhhh!!!). With not much of a trade…yet πŸ™‚ Summer proves to be the hardest time for me to complete a craft project. But I’m getting somewhere.

To be finished

and this is going to be finished too. I promise. I can manage multitasking no problem…

I can not show them today, but I also have a couple of teddies done. Nearly. Hm hm. And a few more new things already started too… So I see my etsy shop reopening in September. Before that – I’m making the best of my summer evenings.

Sitting on the terrace, watching the sky changes

enjoying the view

and enjoying some REALLY good films.

What are you up to on your evenings?
