Vof vof dear friends! It’s Nero here!
Look what we have been doing, paper piecing! I made all the pieces on the floor and now I’m playing with my favourite tennis ball. I like to put the ball on the table when I’m asking someone to play with me.
These hearts were something that we just had to start making! When we saw the hearts Saija had made, we knew this is the hand sewing project for the hot summer days! Saija’s blog is ‘Pomada’ and her instagram HERE. I know you will love her beautiful and inspiring work!
First we weren’t sure what fabrics or colours to use but then we turned to solids and I like them.
Hanna has more patience than me and she is more careful with her paper piecing. I just find the coocie from the box but Hanna continues playing with the box.
Hanna is not playing so much and if she does, she plays mostly alone with some rope toy. She plays like it’s a catch for a hunting dog! You know what is my favourite game! I exercise every day!
We were thinking a lot how to continue. Now we have made templates to fill the edges around the hearts. Perhaps we add some other shapes for border, like bigger diamonds or triangles. Fabrics we have used are Kona cottons, few prints and mixed low volumes. Blue diamonds are from different scraps.
It has been really hot here in Crete! Often also so much humidity that it’s like in sauna, they say. I haven’t been in sauna but I know it’s very hot room where people sit and they throw water on hot stones. For me that doesn’t sound very clever. But what I know about cold weather in Finland. Perhaps after a walk in icy cold, freezing, snow storm, I would like sauna, too! I heard that one Afgan dog of the family always insisted to go to sauna and stayed there long time.
We have enough sauna outside and when the weather is too hot, we just have to stay inside.
These little creatures appear when the weather gets hot. They make very loud noise and usually you can’t see them easily because they sit on the trees and it’s hard to notice them. When I was puppy I had fun catching them and holding them in my mouth where they made srrrssstrrrrrssstrttssss!
From yesterday we have so wonderful wind and the temperature is much lower! All the windows are open and we don’t need to hide inside! I really really hope the rest of the summer could be like this but I know there are coming more burning hot days until my favourite season, autumn.
I wish you enjoyable summer days! Hugs and kisses!
