"life is meant to be colourful"

Bracelets, crochet, bags …


Hello friends! It’s time to fly to Finland. Tomorrow morning Finnair’s blue-white wings are waiting for me.

laundry day

Last minute laundry … I’m so looking for to wear my fresh washed knitted jacket! and boots and scarves! Which colours to take with me?


This time I go with purple and blue. I feel so autumn-purple! and wanted to make a new bracelet for my vacation.


So I did make one purple bracelet … and few more …


Then I had to decide what to take with me because I need to travel very light … you know what happens when I return. These come with me … the lether one was Foxy’s collar (it was too big for her and for me it’s perfect double wrist-band).


Hmm … I shall leave the coral bracelet home; I’m sure one bracelet is about one fat quarter!


I don’t like to leave things to last minute, so I finished these custom order bags today in the morning and then managed to deliver them. More about these in an other bag post.


I have made more crochet squares for my shawl project and these are at the moment the last ones. When I return I shall spread these and see if they are enough and hopefully can start to sew them together. It will be a colourful shawl!

Weather has been gorgeus! Few days the wind was from south and it was really hot but mostly it’s now so perfect. Nelli loves to sleep in the sun. I leave you now with this scene, still so much like summer …


… and next time I shall send you autumn (I hope not yet winter) postcards from Finland.

Thank you for stopping by! See you soon in North!

  4. Tervetuloa! Olen yrittänyt pitää ruskaa yllä, mutta tuuli on hieman repinyt lehtiä puista. Hauskoja lomapäiviä! Olisi hauska tavata, mutta et taida olla Helsingissä.
