I know, this is getting really boring, but I still play with my linens and wools and coasters here. Like I did last weekend (and have done whole week, almost). But to my excuse I have to say that I haven't got a single bunny to show today - just cats.

Hello sweetie, have you spotted the very first bee of this spring?

And you have some ladybug-friends too?

Oh, and some more cats on back too! This set was a special-order and I had the most handsome little cat modeling to me, too. I love cats, and making them makes me happy. So...

To this pretty pink pouch I got my inspiration, like ever so often, from a thrifted fabric. It's pink too, and it has cute and funny cats on it. I used it to line the pouch (and I just love the matchy-matchy). And as you may remember, I am a big fan of pink too, so the pouch has all my favorite elements!

It's cold and and snowy here again *sigh* but tweets sing and clocks turn forward so it's not that bad. I also purchased a few things earlier this week (I had Saturday in mind already on Wednesday) to keep me spring-spirited, and now it's time to enjoy and relax.

And if you just looked very closely...

...Oh yes, there are cats in that sweet (pink) bowl too!

Happiest weekend!

I think you may want to get a twitter icon to your site. Just bookmarked the article, but I must do this by hand. Simply my advice.

Hi Lisa,

And thank you! Those "Kiss-kiss" sweets are almost traditional Finnish sweets invented in year 1901 or so, I remember them from my childhood already. And so good...

Sunshine to you!

And here is my darling Billy in all his glory Mia, they are SUCH great coasters and I cannot wait for Mr Postie to bring them! Thank you for such a great job! He is so like this in the garden in the summer watching all the insects march by! I have also never seen cat sweets...so cute!. Have a great Saturday and it will be time to turn those clocks forward tonight. Lighter nights..bliss!
Take care my dear,
Jane x

Mia, I love your new kitty coasters! All the details are so sweet, the ladybugs, flowers and bee! Love them all. I know I will have to breakdown soon and order some!!! I would probably want bunnies or a yellow doggies with the sweet details. Love to you and have a great weekend, xoRobin❤

Kerry said...

Teje said...

Mia said...

Dear Jane,

I loved making these for you as Billy is just the sweetest, kisses to that wonderful boy!

I am so happy it's time for SUMMER-time, we really deserve that after this long winter, don't we?

Happy weekend and see you next week again!


Mia said...

Hello Robin,

I loved making these coasters, and oh please do break down soon :) as your plans sound adorable too! I think it's this spring that I am making bunnies, cats, bugs and flowers everywhere, and using the brightest colors too!

Have a wonderful weekend!


Mia said...

Hi Kerry,

I almost used that on my post title today so no apologies needed :) and that's what cutest cats are, purrfect indeed!

Have a wonderful and sunny weekend!


Mia said...

I was thinking of you, Teje, when I made today's post!!! I thought that you might remember kiss-kisses, and even the whole "Fazerin Parhaat" sweet mix! It's always been my favorite, and kiss-kiss is the best of them all!

Have a sun-filled weekend!


Mia said...

Oh Viv, that's him alright! I think after all those wonderful posts in Jane´s blog he's sort of celebrity around us too, the sweetest boy and always so interested in posing for us in photos :)

Happiest weekend to you and see you next week!


Lyn said...

Happy weekend!

Mia said...

That is so great news, Donna, we have still SOME and MORE snow around here, and as we speak it snows again *sigh* but sun shines and days are lighter so spring it is!!

Have a great new week soon!


Mia said...

Hi Leah,

It's so much lighter here each day and not that cold either so I'm happy :) I wish your new week is full of sunny and great days!


Mia said...

I am so happy to hear, Pam,
and that's exactly what I had in mind, sunny and happy days and smiling creatures :)

I wish you wonderful new week soon!

Mia said...

Hello Anne,

It's cold and snowy (!!) here too still, but so much more lighter and sunnier so I have to consider this as Finnish spring :) I hope your weather gets better soon!

Happiest week and many happy greetings to you all!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
