Sunshine coastered

Even I feel I really am repeating myself, I cannot tell you how wonderful this lightness and brightness is. After approximately six months of completely darkness this feels like a miracle. And even you should get used to things after many years of practice, these winters seem to get harder and harder to me as years go by. EspaƱa here I come?



But as Finn I have realized moaning about winter is a) a national sport b) getting me nowhere, so instead I'll celebrate this wonderful sunny weekend with some colorful new coasters! I made some Easter ones earlier, but these new pairs definitely have the spring feel to them, great to enjoy with your tea or coffee all year round.



There are some flower admiring and picking...



Some sunshine (and clouds)...



...and all have same mint-ish green happy goose families cotton (reused, naturally) on back. And these also have new strings: some cotton thread and little flowers. I like it!



They'll all be nesting here (not permanently I hope) soon.

Happy Sunday!

Yours,
Mia

Happy Sunday to you Mia! I'm so happy to hear that you have sushine also outside at not only in your beautiful, sweet works! Those cute coasters really bring happiness and sunshine!
I was hoping you say Ellada, here I come...
Have a lovely Sunday and great week! x Teje

Hello sweet Teje,

I would come to yours if only I would manage the language! I have studied Spanish for a while now so I think it'll be my destination :) but I can definitely visit?

Enjoy your weekend!

Yours,
Mia

Mia, you sure brought sunshine to my day. We are cloudy and rainy and gloomy! Your new coasters are so lovely. Love the new ties with flowers, so cute and clever. Will you really be moving? I'm sure your coasters will soar out of your shop.

Dear Robin,

We've had this plan to move to Spain for years, and some years we definitely will. Not yet though, our nephew must be big enough to fly on his own ;) to visit us often! But yes, the not-so-secret plan is that we could stay winters there and summers in here but we'll see :)

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Yours,
Mia

I am so pleased that your daylight has returned Mia...there is nothing better to lift us up is there? The move to 1/2 a year in Finland and the other in Spain sounds fab.....we have visited all the Spanish islands but never the mainland. What a plan and a ready made holiday for your nephew when he is grown!
Happy sunny week!

Dear Jane,

I am loving all the sun and brightness...Spring is here (after three or so months I have been talking about it...), and if I'm not wrong, a certain b-day is near too ;) ?

Kisses to B!

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...
