Summer is here... :o)

and boy do that feel good or WHAT!!! :o)

Seem to get longer and longer time between my blogposts, 
really need to shape up!!
Hope I can do that!!

Ok we have had all kind of weather.. sunny and warm days and already had our share of rain for June...
I dont care as long Summer is here!!! :o)

So happy to have the PIF gifts sent and received... 
More than a year late.. yikes...
so so happy I could make something and send!!

 I recycled old tea towels and old tablecloths, cross stitched and stamped on fabric and just played around
to make gifts my PIF Girls... 
It was FUN...
and I actually sewed some ... felt like ages and so it was!

Made bags from old swedish tea towels...
inspired from the book Natural Patchwork by 
Suzuko Koseki

And little needle cases made from a tutorial 

And Swedish pincushions cross stitched by me....

 So happy they all landed at their new owners...
despite ash clouds over South America!

Happy you liked them girls...

Otherwise Schools over here in Sweden...
(picture from the day school ended!! 
Viktor and his best friend Kasper goofing around)

Tennis school have started... but 
 today he is sick...
high fever .. nothing else.. strange!!
Having trouble getting the fever down..
Poor guy!!
Hope it will pass quickly!


Molly is growing quickly...
here are some old pictures from her first bath this summer!
Have to take some new photos of her...
because she have grown...:o)

On the sewing front..
am sewing on Butterfly Garden and are working on the the last stitcheries...
hope to finish them soon so I can put the quilt together soon!!

Lots of Love from me
Stina..

From Molly House...

so it is...
Molly House...
Everything is is about Molly right now...
but dont read me wrong.. we do love it!!! :o)
She is a real sweetie ..but sometimes she is just sooooo...
resourceful..:o)
Like the day we found her in Viktors bookshelf... second row up.. 
in a little bed for his soft animals...
*BIG SMILE*


And getting to know her.. she loves everything soft and warm... :o)
She is like the "Princess and the Pea"...
the softer the better...no bumps...
Just like the Princess... :O)

Well otherwise ..I have tried out
Tatting...
ahh this was tricky..but got it finally..
but I dont think its my kind of craft!!

Just a few days left of school so I have some things to finish up!

Finished and sent of my PIF gifts to my fantastic 
and ever so kind PIF ladies who have been
 waiting for their gifts forever...
but now they are on the way!!!

 shared with family and our new friend!!

with his new companion!!
