The very last days of April

Oh my, I have lost almost a whole week by being ill. I had the spring-flu of the century, and I have spent last five days in my bed. Huh, I am still weak but I up and walking at least. That's enough of that horrid experience, but please take a look of the nature around here now:


I know - what a difference a week can make! The snow has almost gone and grass is  green-ish again. Sun shines, and I've been told it has been +10C every day this week. Just about the time I would say. 






I haven't got that much to show to you but still a few more bags I have made. These I actually got finished last weekend already, but the last pictures were taken today with somewhat shaken hands and legs. I am so behind my schedule (I had a plan which included a shipping of a custom order today - just didn't happen) but sometimes you just need to take it slow. I'll be working this weekend though as Monday&Tuesday are great holidays here, May 1st opens the SUMMER-SEASON for real! So I am back to my designing-felting-sewing and wish you all happy Friday, and sunny weekend soon too!

Stay healthy!

Yours,
Mia

Sweet Mia,
So sorry to hear you have been sick. That is not fun and especially if you need to stay in bed! I'm really happy you are up and regaining your strength. Orders can wait, just get better : ) Love the beautiful Spring bags, so detailed and cheery!
Hurray for Spring, you certainty deserve it.

Awe poor you Mia, wishing you a full recovery soon but flu is nasty so take it easy!!
I am so pleased to see earth and no snow in your photos and not only earth but green shoots too.
Your new bags reflect the new season too, lots of brights. :)

Hello dear Jane,

I am live&kicking now but oh man how sick I was! I still cough a little and feel tired after ten minutes of work ;) but better, oh how much better I now am!

I wish you sunny moments in your garden, happy crafting in your studio and cozy evenings with Billy on your side this weekend! And we'll get ready for that BBQ!

Mia

Thank you, Helen!

I am feeling much better already, and I'm sure all your lovely wishes have helped! It's wonderful to see some green around us now, it was a long wait but always as surprising still!

Have a happy weekend, hopefully you'll have a pretty, sunny spot in your garden!

Gorgeous makes :D

Please take it steady Mia, it takes the body a while to recover from a proper dose of flu, you need to rest still x

Mia said...

Thank you, Annie!

I feel better now, but still get tired quite easily (aka miss the holidays) and cough is still here... What a start for May!

I wish you're having sunny May-days and enjoying your knitting!
