Hello… I’m excited…I think I have something nice to you today my Lovely Friends!!!
Lots of light at least…in fact so much that I couldn’t see well ‘what I was doing’!
In the morning I was around this area. Here is something old and interesting…
…it’s leather! In this area, just next to the sea were in old times lots of leather fabrics. In fact there are still few working. But many big, old buildings are now closed and only reminder is some forgotten leather stacks outside.
This place reminds me my sister, because we were once here together! Hello Dear Tiia!!! She is working with leather so I had to show this place! We looked how the leathers are – I was thinking perhaps I could create a cover for a garden table or something else were the quality doesn’t matter – but unfortunately they are not good enough for anything. They are like hard paper which brokes easily.
Nelli was not with us even this sweety here looks very much like her.
This was my morning ‘walk’. It was again one perfect sunny day and we went for drive with Jorgo and his red scooter!
Then back home…hungry… some lunch…and after that every one likes to have a nice nap…
…and what could be better place than under the palm tree with your beloved blanket…which is not quite ready yet…
…and your dear ‘sister’ next to you!!! Life is Wonderful!!!
– “Sorry but I think I need to go…something is happening in the B.B.Q!”
– “Yes..you better be going to check out…”
– “I love this ‘Nero’s blanket’! Please make a pink ‘Hanna’s blanket’ for me! …I think I have to go, too!”
…they were both ‘flying’ to the B.B.Q!
In the afternoon we left the house with Hanna. We had some shopping in the super market and medicin for Hanna’s eyes (I think something in the garden has irritated them). And then we were ready for a walk! We drove a little bit outside from our village and stopped to admire the amazing calm sea!
Sun was so strong that I couldn’t see what kind of picture I was taking! All the blue shadows behind are mountains, except the small darker in front – that’s an island.
Hanna was smelling something…she has for sure blood of hunting dog! She uses very much and well her nose, whereas Nero doesn’t work so well with his nose. Once I made just for fun ‘trace’ with drops of sauce, and the price at the end was a sausage! Hanna was running straight to the sausage, keeping her nose all the way on the ground! Nero was running around the garden, here and there and finally happened to find the sausage!
We had so lovely walk! Now it’s time to go back home – there is some Christmas secrets waiting…
On our way home,we stopped to say hello to these great fellows! I love to watch them! And they have so lovely colours! You know…one morning last winter we woked up with very loud noise…there was perhaps 100 hundred goats walking and eating very close to our house! It was amazing sight – so wonderful!!! If I find the photos I took then, I’ll show to you!
Christmas Secrets!!!…hhhmmmm…this is all I can show…
But I can show you something else what I found in the morning – A lovely place for our Christmas cards! Visit here !
Still I had one walk – now with Nero. He was so happy and exited smelling all the news from the neighbourhood!
Now it’s evening and time to sit front of the ‘telly’ with ‘Nero’s blanket’. He is already dreaming…
I hope you had wonderful moment between your Cristmas preparations! My sister told me today that in Hampshire it was raining and the snow is melting away…still it’s cold and surely many of you have lots of snow! I try to send you some sun, warm and lightness with these photos!
We have still hot summer here…no need for a blanket…but Foxy is ready for a winter with her new warm blanket!
This was my first try with ‘Granny-square’ blanket and I got inspiration for this from my dear first blog-friend Rachel (Country&Cosy). Sorry Rachel I didn’t learn this yet… You find her lovely blog from my Favorites! She has helpped and encouraged me to begin my blog!
I know Foxy…I liked the blanket also more without that ‘around part’…. or perhaps those colours are wrong….
There should be more light colours… anyway the blanket is nice but not the best…sorry Foxy… I had decided to use only left overs for this first one… next time we shall do it with lovely, happy colours!
When I was out, Foxy came to see what I am doing and jumped by herself up to the chair. I think she likes her new blanket!
All those ‘orange’ suns and flowers are the best part of this ‘Autumn Sun’ -blanket – vov it found a name! My first handwork with name!
Some lines in the frame are with one colour and in some of them the colour is changing.
Now I don’t have any left overs! At least not from these yarns…don’t worry…my store is not empty yet…
I like to thank you for all your lovely comments and wish you wonderful weekend with this beautiful ‘painting’ on the evening sky!
