Vof -vof everyone!!! I hope you are fine and happy! We are fine and yesterday Foxy went to see our vet who told that her heart is fine and there is no sign about ‘those days’ …. hmmm … I think we have to stop pretending ‘that’, and start to act ‘normally’ again. Foxy’s teeth are full of stone but she is too old for tooth-cleaning, so I guess I need to buy some peppermint to her to get fresh breath! Because I know you are waiting to see what someone bought from Finland, I show you first some cool turquoise …
You can recognize these adorable prints! Two fabrics from down don’t write well in their selvages – if you know what they are, we would be happy to learn. I love those prints with balls!
And then how about some yummy orange …
Wow, they are delicious! But here comes something that I’m sure you love …
… you see this fabric has ‘4 in 1’ + those fantastic tickets!
… and something as sweet as these but in pink …
… this would make the most beautiful quilts for little girls or perhaps even for boys …
But all these you have already seen hanging on clothes-line, so I’m sure you would be happy to see something more …
White felt for needle books, pins, ripper for frogging, great (very expensive) buttons and thin blue fabric. I love that blue fabric! It’s very thin and light! First I didn’t take it, but last day I went again just to pick that piece. It’s perfect for a cool summer blouse or a ‘home-dress’ and I have an idea for a scarf … if that will come true, you are the first one to see it!
… and did you think that I could have returned home without any ‘Unikko’?!
I saw this piece of oil cloth in a shop that I have showed to you earlier … where I was looking for a present … I just had to pick this! It may become a tote-bag, make-up bags or even place mats. Beautiful and good quality!
What else … for an other experiment …
You may guess that the decoupage glue and the paper napkins have something to do together but what about the crochet hooks? They don’t include to this group. I needed bigger hooks and this set from ‘Novita’ was happy enought to jump in to my shopping basket!
For a long time I have wanted to try that decoupage technic – world is just full of beautiful, funny things made like that! Okey – I learnt that you don’t need necesserily this special glue, but I’m happy to make my first try with this.
But before that, I’m busy with many other things like making more bags …
New crabs are coming! Stripe bag and the red-white bag are already in my etsy shop ! I’m very happy to tell you that I have sold one bird bag and also the ‘Pink Birds’ baby quilt, ‘Patches on the beach’ small wall quilt and some place mats! Wow that was really wonderful – thank you so much for buying from my little shop! So, you see I really needed new materials?!
Oh boy, I am so tired! I haven’t been sleeping much these last two weeks and I have lost some weight because having a sweet little girl under your nose, you can’t think of food! Now I am really enjoying my good and loooong nap and delicious chicken dinner!
Nelli is also very happy because we have fixed the summer couch outside … perfect place for her to sleep and to see what happens around.
Thank you for stopping by and reading my ‘Post’! We have been so happy about all your wonderful comments! Thank you, thank you!!!
Thank you Carla! That is always the problem – I wanted much more fabrics but I was allowed to have only 20 kg suitcase and 10 kg hand-luggage. I used that exactly! Unfortunately needed to have some clothes with me. x Teje
Thank you Dorien! On the other hand it was so easy to choose all these beautiful fabrics but on the other hand so difficult to choose what not to take! They are very precious to me because I can’t find quilting fabrics from here! x Teje
Dear Nero, I am SO glad that Foxy is fine and you can get some sleep and eat again! Bless you. Teje must have needed an extra case to bring all that wonderful fabric home. I am sure you had treats too. Enjoy the sunshine, it is steaming here in the UK today!
Jane and Billy xx
Thank you Avis! I didn’t have many with me and half of those were too much – as usually! But you never know what you need and where you have to go.
I have great ideas and I should organize my time better. Happy weekend! x Teje
Thank you so much! I’m so happy that Foxy is still fo well even she is a ‘granny’! She sleeps a lot but also she runs happily after Nero and Hanna when they go out. And in the evenings she makes us ‘grazy’ asking all the time goodies! Happy weekend and hugs to your puppies! x Teje
Good to hear Foxy is doing better. So many critters to take care of! Lovely fabrics and craft supplies from your trip. Those tickets are pretty cool on the green prints. Wonder what you’ll do with those. I read somewhere that crabs are a big trend now on fabrics. Should be fun to play with those too.
Thank you Terri! Foxy is just amazing for her 16 years! I enjoy watching my new fabrics and just wait to get my scissors on them! Crabs are really funny and I saw few fabrics but can’t remember where. If find the site, I’ll tell you. Happy weekend! x Teje
Beautiful finds, Teje! All those lovely fabrics – the turquoise ones are my favorite, it must be the summer getting near… And I am so happy to hear that the vet gave Foxy the clean bill of heath, that wonderful news!
Thank you so much Mia! I was so happy to hear that Foxy is fine and perhaps only tired because of her age! I have also very much summer colours in my mind! Here it’s getting colder?!
Sunny weekend to you! x Teje
I am bringing my husband to Sweden & Finland this summer because he packs lighter than anybody I know, which will work for all my purchases. Well, maybe I am bringing him because he has family in Mariehamn.
Love all the fun sewing notions.
Especially like the punctuation fabrics with the tickets.
WELCOME AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR VISIT!
I am a Finnish woman living in Greece! My days are filled with sewing, quilting and other crafts.
