Back to reality

Holidays are over for now, but there's not that long until May 1st, which will be the next big thing here, some bank holidays and all. And even Easter was wonderful, I think even more fantastic is the spring we have here now! Snowing has stopped, streets are drying up and you can almost hear snow melting.



Around this time each year I start searching from my stash something else than wool, usually it's tweed but this year it seems to be wool-polyester blends paired with some cheerful characters and bright colors. I love knitting and felting and really do it all year round but with summer in mind there's always a phase of something different. After a while I'll blow the dust off my needles and happily clicketi-click my bags and pouches again. And outside soon too I wish.



These little phone-cozies are on their way to far, far away already, but more is on my desk. I wish to get some to my shop too after I have finished yet an another custom batch. That reminds me that I really shouldn't be here but on my sewing machine... It's just been quiet a few days and I just need to chat with you, friends! I wish your holidays were fab and you're all enjoying great weather these days too.



Happy Wednesday!

Yours,
Mia

Gorgeous little phone cosies Mia and very spring like.
So glad you had a lovely holiday and that your weather is improving.
We have had a lovely Easter, it just went to quickly. Our weather is very 'April', sunshine and showers.

Thank you, Teje!

And as for packing, it's really pretty and sunny here but REALLY wet and muddy as the snow melts really fast, so rubber boots would work great :) but at least it's not snowing or cold, welcome!
