...I've been very occupied just being. I have stepped away from Cyber Space a bit and leaned back in Real Life. Occasionally I've filled my Instagram feed with a snap shot of #widn (#what I'm doing now, for those who don't do IG) of the day. Occasionally I've dropped a comment on your snippet from your day. But not that much.
I've been working on a new pattern, I'm so delighted to be able to share it with you soon. It is cute, fun, quick and simple with a little bit of a challenge. Inspired by my Grandma Eivor's potholders found in her attic and in a fully vintage style. I'll tell you more later.
I've been reflecting on last year when the big drama occurred, when we couldn't think straight, sleep, eat or do anything, sick of worry for how it would go for our Luca Bo in hospital. It seems so far away but still the fear of having to face that type of drama again is nagging in my deepest soul... This week he turns 12, my dearest baby boy.
I've celebrated Emmy Bo's 9th birthday with shaboooom and shabaaaam. We did some craft, enjoyed a beautifully homemade cake and there were lots of giggles and laughter. I'll share it with you later as the crafts we did were lots of fun.
I've started on yet another baby blanket and I'm loving the simple effect the mix of stitches gives my solid wide stripes. It is a perfect early summer project to do in the garden, in front of the TV, in bed on a rainy day. The color theme is inspired by a Dala horse... Very neutral and Scandinavian.
I've listed some new Maybelle Blanket Yarn Kits in my Etsy Shop for you who missed out last time. I had some problems with my yarn distributor and hope to have even more yarn in stock soon.
I've been hoping for some warm weather after weeks of thunder, rain and chilly winds. You would think it is October although it is June. The chives were cut back yesterday and put in a big pot as I love the flowers so much, and the sun finally appeared and we climbed not less than 10 degrees in just one day. Summer dress and sandals on! I hope it will stay.
I've been working (!!!). It is a temporary gig only for a week or two. But still, I go to work every day for a few hours. I'm only 2 days in but I can feel the difference already. I need a job, to get out of the house and meet other people professionally. When having a goal for a day I become so much more efficient and I have already accomplished a number of things that has been dragging behind on my To-Do-list lately. It is good.
Lately we have started to count down the days until school finishes. Until Nelly Bo will fly all by herself to Sweden this year, a week before the rest of us. I'm so excited for her, and a bit sad as I realize she is about to take off into the big grown up world soon... My little girl. So big and mature now. What happened?
Today I'll continue working on my Vintage Potholder Pattern and hopefully I have it ready for release later in the week. I only have one more potholder to test run... Stay tuned. I'm here, although you might not see me that much. I'm always around and about.
