Oh my, oh my, oh my - it's June already, and so so so so wonderful weather! It was almost seven o'clock in the evening when I took this picture, and just take a look at the thermometer:
And just in case you can't see it clearly because of all that dust *ahem* it says inside +26,7C and outside +26,8C! For you, my dear friends, who use the Fahrenheit's this is really, really, really warm. Really. And what have I done to celebrate this wonderfulness? I have parked quite permanently outside, I have my studio in the garden, and under a new, big umbrella it's just a bliss. Nature around me is beautiful and green, and I have had some cute visitors too...
...just take a look at that rabbit (I think it is an European hare, actually), it was clearly too hot for him (he looks like a guy to me), and he rested quite a while almost next to me, and didn't care me poking the wool while he napped. And just what have I been poking?
Pillowcases! Cushion covers! With flowers and strawberries - just perfect for the season, I think.
I found that beautiful blue flowered fabric while thrifting some weeks ago, and it took some courage to cut it as I think it is one of my favorite finds for a long, long time. But now I'm happy I did it, the fabric turned into a a pretty pillow case with some blue needle felted flowers. And soon they were followed by more flowers...
...and a summer wouldn't be summer without strawberries, right?
Happy, happy happy I am, and off to make some more. I wish you all the loveliest first week of June!
P.S. The pillowcases can be seen more closely here.
