Heading for summer

Yesterday the day and night were equally long, which means *yippee* that today the day will be longer, and we're officially heading for summer! In the following weekend the clocks will be turned one hour forward, and the Summer Time begins!




My weekend was filled with summery thoughts. I just couldn't pick up the knitting needles and wool as sun was shining and almost first time in last 5months we had some +degrees. So I ended up playing my linens, and had some smaller things done. Originally the linen were for these birdie bags but there were plenty left, and some pretty pouches were born.




Some had long straps, some shorter, and some just had a bunny. I seem to be making more and more bunnies, first the coasters, and now...



... They've hopped into a pouch too! And paired with pretty pinks this one turned to be the cutest of them all. And who knows, maybe there will be some bunny bags too - they're so springly figures and ever so sweet too. I am full of new ideas and energy, it must be the sun. I hope you're feeling wonderful in this Monday too!

Happy and sunny new week!

Yours,
Mia

Hi Jane,

It's still almost +degrees here (evening, at 7 o'clock) and tomorrow we could be +9! That's really something!

Happy times with your garden this week, and I'm sure Billy will be assisting? Kisses to him!
