Hello my Dear Friends!
I have been waiting all the morning to meet you…
This amazing summer continues here – I think + 30 degrees and warm wind from south. We have been today outside with the olive trees and it was so hot (I was red like tomato on my face). Now we have cut the woods for the fireplace, I have collect suitable pieces for my works and still we have cleaned almost all the rest leaves and gave them to the next door sheeps! They were so happy to get new leaves! I said I would tell you how much oil we made from the olives. We gave to the factory about 400 kg olives (with lots of leaves) and got about 70 kg oil.
During this autumn I have enjoyed so much sewing even my machine is not very good friend of mine… of course I enjoy also too much knitting, crochet, felting… sometimes I envy those people who has passion for one craft and don’t have to share their time with too many subjects and at the end can’t concentrate on any of them!
This is a place mat with the same theme with houses like I have had this year! The striped fabric is from Finnish ‘Marimekko’ which I have saved long time and now here it found the right place!
In this patchwork I like very much all the warm autumn colours and as usually a little bit white to give light and clearness for the darker colours! I didn’t use wadding, to be steady for a glass or a coffee cup. There is thick white fabric back and I have made some stitches like waves to have an idea of plants in the garden with the fabric where is plants and birds!
So…that was about the patches. You know…so often…almost every night I wake few times and have in my mind the crafts I’m working…and you my special friends! I am thinking all those things l’d like to show to you and tell about! And then I should choose what to have in my next post… Today I feel that I just have to show you sweet, qute pigs!
In fact Nero could tell you about the pigs, but he is now out and busy barking with the neighbour’s boxer!
These two pigs are so sweet…and so busy! They dig almost all the day and they have really fixed all the land next to us where are also the sheeps. After the hot and dry summer the land is very hard but these little helpers have made it so soft and full of big holes that it would be perfect for planting!
…perhaps a little bit more deep…
…hello there! Now it seems to be perfect for a nice, lovely, relaxing…
…siesta! For me these two small pigs look so sweet and qute…with the lovely light, pink colour, all the legs crossed and mixed!
In our family we all like animals and also pigs…even my grandfather! I have from him this great painting which is one of my favorites!
Here you can see that it’s painted 1972 and I got it from my mother perhaps about 1985. Since then it has been always on my wall – sometimes changing the room – but I love it and like to have this painting always some where to be able to see it!
Pigs are nice…Nero likes them, too…. especially their ears!
