Today we are here all together to talk about summer. Now it’s really hot – + 32 in the shadow – I don’t dare to think how much in the sun. This is a holiday time and our dear friend is coming here in few days from Finland! I heard that I am going to the beach with her! Now there is a difficult decision to make …
… should I take my blue sun-hat or the other one …
… turqoise is so beautiful and goes well with my pink towel – but I think the other one covers my eyes well …
… I don’t know … I take both of them! I have packed also my ‘travel set’. When Nero was young and had to eat special food, he got this great present. Now it’s just perfect for my trip!
This set has place for everything – food, goodies, buiscuits and water!
Oh boy – it is sometimes difficult with the girls …
… what’s the big deal if the hat is blue or pink! If it gives me shadow when the sun is too shiny, it’s good enough!
Aaah, that’s much better! Did you notice that my other ear is not so up … I was again fighting with the vet. This time there was Mr. Kostas and he don’t mind even I fight and we fixed my ear without me sleeping. It was a bad moment but then I was feeling so well and I didn’t feel sleepy the rest of the day like usually.
Now I’m feeling great and I shall enjoy my holidays under the shadow tree next to the pool! My dear girlfriend Foxy is going to keep me company …
… it’s nice to walk around in the garden but it is sooooo hot …
… isn’t there any sun-hat for me? I want to go home to my lovely, comfortable arm chair!
Hello … some people talk, too. Last time I showed you some hexies. I really like them and now I have finished few blocks …
I made them a little bit wonky and didn’t measure the patches. I was thinking if someone could guess what I thought I could make with hexagons … I have been thinking so much how to make my ‘Dream Quilt’. Since I won those beautiful fabrics, it has been in my mind.
It is difficult to choose how to make that quilt because there are so many fantastic choises and also the fabrics are too beautiful to cut very small pieces. So that’s why I think I could make something like this …
If you like hexagons and want to see great tutorial, visit my last post to find a link to Jaybird Qilts! You can make so many different kind of hexacons and in an easy way!
Those two first blocks I’m going to use to make a cover for my sewing machine. For a long time now this special tea towel has protected my machine from the dust …
My sister used to live in this beautiful, small village and I was lucky to visit her there! Once she sent to me this lovely tea towel, which is like a painting. One day I shall create something with this; perhaps a wall quilt. You can visit my sister’s website here!
I’m having busy time during the summer and as Hanna said, we are going to have summer guests. First comes our dear friend from Finland, who gave home to Hania and Obi! So I thought this is perhaps good time to have a small ‘blog-holiday’, too. Perhaps I miss you and I’ll be back soon – but if there is not enough time, I’ll see you in two weeks.
We wish you sunny, happy, joyful, relaxing, creative holidays and send you our warmest hugs and kisses!!!
How funny to see that tea towel on your blog – lovely!
Do you remember “Mary Jane” whio had that coffee shop in Rowlands Castle? She was in our wedding as well so you must have met her. She was the one who painted all those buildings of the village and got the towels printed.
Also, do you remember “Herbie”, the landlord of the Fountain pub there and who sang and played guitar in our wedding? he was just in the tv here in a program called “Britain’s Got Talent”.
So all those memories in a tea towel there, far far away in Crete!
I’m off to Portsmouth now…
Lots of Hugs!!
ps. Have you looked at our new web site yet?
Hello dear sister! I wish they show that show here, it would be nice to see Herbie again! Rowlands Castle is so cute village and this tea towel is a lovely souvenir from there! I have added your link in my post so that my friends can see your unique leather work! Hugs! Xxx Teje
Looks like a beautiful day in your part of the world! I love seeing photos of the poochies hanging by the pool and the beach. What a perfect travel set to have, with all the necessary items. I always have fun trying on hats so it’s fun to see you doing it too. Love the final choice the best! Fun to see your newest sewing project too.
Thank you Terri! I had fun with my friends when taking these photos. I didn’t think that Nero wears the hat, but he didn’t mind (with tasty goodies everything is possible). Now my favorites are hexagons; it’s always nice to make something different and new! X Teje
Oh oh, what a tough choices to make Hanna! Lucky you, it is going to be hot weather for a lot more days, so you can wear both hats day after day!
Teje, I love the wonky hexagons. What a great idea to make them wonky.
I wish you all a very happy blog-holiday. Enjoy!!
It looks just lovely there, Teje! And believe it or not – it was +30,1c here yesterday too, yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! That was a long yippee 🙂 but I KNOW that you understand my happiness after a long and hard winter and rainy band cold spring… It’s just wonderful! And your patchwork is so beautiful, I just love the colors!
As usual, your wry and sunny way of seeing things has made me smile. I hope you enjoy your visit, and your vacation. I love these dogs of yours, and the hat was very funny. I feel like I can reach out and pat their soft ears and fuzzy face. Now I will have to go and hug my own puppies. Please kiss Nero for me. And tell him – girls are not always as wonderful as he would hope.
Gorgeous photos! The ‘wonky’ hexagons work…so cool. : )

Nero, I sure hope you get out of that collar soon. Mom hasn’t been doing her proper blog visiting here lately, but she’s getting back in the game! The hat becomes you though! It sounds like you all really need all those hats, and shade and maybe a cool breeze somewhere? Wow–it sure has been hot there!
Teje, enjoy your time with your friend! It’s always fun to have visitors.
