Smile – Sun is Shining!
December 20, 2010 by Teje
Vow – it’s Monday and the Christmas is almost on the door!!!
I see in the news that many countries have problems with the snow, airports are closed and roads are full of snow…and it’s snowing more and more all the time! I do hope that everything is getting normal soon, so that all those people who likes to travel somewhere in Christmas time, can get to their destinations!
Here in Crete we are preparing our Christmas with WARM SUNSHINE !!!
In summer time every where is quite dry and only the flowers and plants we are watering, can grow. In winter time it’s green every where, perhaps not so many flowers before spring – but lots of green! I think we should cut the grass before Christmas…
I have today new model to show my scarf! I know many friends of mine like so much pigs!
Smile!!! If you love pigs and like to smile, look my earlier post with pigs!
I wish our pig would have a full stomach!
Now it’s getting cloudy but till now the day was so warm and sunny. I was walking around in the garden with my friends…
We went to see how warm it is really…
We met the pig again…
Sorry…I lost a little bit my theme…the scarf…but the pigs are just so sweet!!!
I was ment to show that I have finished my scarf from left overs of Nero’s Blanket!
Yesterday was a day with mixed feelings…we were waiting some people to come and didn’t know if they come or not and when…and I just couldn’t concentrate well to do something. Finally I tought to give a try for trees I had in my mind for a while. That was a perfect job…I had so much fun to make them!
When I saw these in Terri’s blog, I thought they look easy enough and would be great for my quilt ‘Finnish Forest’.
It wasn’t so easy – not at least for the first one…
The second one is much better.
I’m making these trees with small patches, so it takes time, but I don’t mind because I enjoy to make ‘a puzzle’! Also I don’t try to make all of them exactly the same and perfect. In the nature all the trees are different so in my quilt they can be a little bit different, too.
The quilt ’Finnish Forest’ is going to have also this kind of blocks…
For me in these colours there is a feeling of Finnish Forest – there is so much forests in Finland, with so much trees that sometimes the atmosphere in the forest is a little bit dark – anyway I love always blue and white and red is perfect colour to match with them! Now my only problem is that I should sew many other things and I would like to sew only trees!!!
This post wasn’t very ‘Christmassy’ but I hope you still enjoyed the sunshine and the sweet pig!
By By Dear Friends! I’m so happy to hear often about you and I hope you have special and lovely time these last days before the ‘Magical Eve’!!!
‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year…’
