Knock, knock, who's there?

So, it looks like I've completely missed August . . .

Oh well, I do plan to record a bit more of what's happening around here. There's a lot going on in our lives at the moment and finding time to take pictures and jot down a few thoughts has been a bit tough. But I'm disappointed when I look back at this journal and see how little I've recorded so I've set myself a challenge to make more of an effort.

It seems like a good time for a new start, the first day of Spring and all. I have been looking forward to this season with a longing unlike anything I can ever remember before and today really delivered! A beautiful warm day that allowed for the house to be opened up and gave me a much needed energy boost.

We put this door knocker on the front door yesterday and it feels like this is a home now instead of a building site!

I finished Keira's
Big Round rug a little while back and it's been busy keeping her warm in bed ever since.

This is the border that I added after sewing the blocks together.

Happy Spring!

You are amazing. I need to run and get the boys ready for school but I can't wait to see this !

Good to hear from you! That blanket looks wonderful, as I love all things resembling polka dots.

Can you tell me where you got the pattern for this beautiful creation? You can e-mail me at outi at minessa dot fi.

Oh, and it always a bit confusing the way things are "the wrong way" down there...we're just settling in to autumn and then winter and there you go talking about just seems weird and funny. :-)

Doesn't Keira's rug look fabulous!

This scarf seems to be a hand-made scarf. I liked the color combination used in this.
