Batch of spring

Do you still remember these bags from last spring? I realize that those pictures were taken 27th of April (which is a week later than today) but still. I mean look at the nature, there's no snow! And for the reality check here's the same yard last evening:



Taken through window? Indeed, who would get out with a camera when it's like this:



Blimey. But I'm a hardcore crafter and spring-will-come-to-those-who-wait-believer, and I made a batch of spring bags 2012 even the weather is drastically horrible! There was no putting then on a ground for picture-taking like last year though, but who cares?

There's a green, sort of burgundy-violet and pretty blue bag ready and red is still on my needles. I have been eyeing yellows and oranges too. I know, I know, I just get into something, and keep making many. More the merrier and all that?



I wanted to make not only springly but also larger style-bags into my shop and also use some smaller skeins of yarn ends I have. A mission accomplished! And since the technical difficulties* seem to keep me from uploading more pictures, you can see the bags more closely here.

Happy Thursday!

Yours,
Mia

*Anyone else confused with the new blogger? I just spent an hour and half trying to figure out how to get the pictures in right place/size/order and how to play with pictures AND text and *add an ugly word here* still not right. I had many more pictures ready for you, but there's not enough hours in my evening so this will do for now. I'm sure it's fab once I can get it working - next year, maybe?

What gorgeous colours Mia, just what you need to balance out all that whiteness!!!
I can't believe you still snow, that's really not fair, is it!
But you've been very busy with your bags and very lovely they are too. :)
Sending you some sunshine,
Vivienne xxxxxxxxxx

HI Mia, Love your colors and bags. You really just have to keep going despite your long winter. Good for you! But you're right the Spring will come and it will be better than ever!! I'm sending you smiles and sun and hugs! xoRobin❤

Teje said...

Amazing new bags, Mia! I love the blue one!
And amazing - snow again! Just when I had decided not to take my 'umppis' winter coat; I guess I shall change my mind still few times till Sunday morning! I hope that all the sunshine I have packed in my suitcase, will arrive to Finland!
I'm sorry that you have difficulties with the blogger. I have wordpress and often most of my post disappears when I publish it (most likely local problem with the internet).
Happy early weekend! x Teje

Teje said...

...just saw your reply from the last post and your wish for sunshine! Because I have wordpress, even I'm not no-reply, still I can't receive replies from some blogs. x Teje

Jane said...

Oh Mia and it still snows ...but Spring will come my dear and if it sees these gorgeous bags it will come much more quickly. I just love the green one but they are all such happy bright bags. I seem to be OK with the new blogger writing new posts but the new dashboard is really challenging. As you say though we will just have to get used to it won't we. We are getting some really heavy rain here finally just as the hosepipe ban come in force. Nearly the weekend my dear, keep snug,
Jane x

Annie @ knitsofacto said...

Just catching up here. Loving these bags Mia ... they are so perfectly 'by Mia' ... I love your style!

Hope the snow is soon gone x

Mia said...

Thank you, Vivienne!

It's better now (not snowing!) but I am secretly ;) also thinking it's not fair... But making springly items helps and oh, seeing happy posts with sunshine like your bunny-one makes me smile! Thank you!

Happy weekend!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Thank you, Robin!

Your wishes helped a) I am feeling much happier b) it's now snowing this morning yippee!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend soon!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Dear Teje,

I'm sure you will not need umppis (we call it unttari!) here, it's not that cold and actually it haven't snowed for last 36hours or so (I'm not counting but...), all your spring-wishes seem to be working! So welcome to springly Finland, dear, I wish you'll have the greatest time!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

I know, Jane, spring is definitely late BUT it has said to be even +10C during this following weekend *add a little dance here* so I'm happily waiting a new SPRING-weekend!

Enjoy your time in your garden and your studio and kisses to B again!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Thank you, Annie, I am so happy my style starts to be "mine" :)

Have a wonderful and sunny weekend soon!

Yours,
Mia

Fleur Cotton said...

Oh your new bags are absolutely beautiful, I am so in love with the purple one!

I hope that you see some Spring scenes out of your window soon.

Have a lovely weekend.

Mia said...

Thank you Fleur!

All of your kind wishes have helped tremendously: no snow yet today! Not shine either but I'm not complaining!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Yours,
Mia

Voi että.. Siis toi vihreä on aivan upea! Mielettömän kaunis.

Mia said...

Kiitos, Nova!

Ihanaa viikonloppua sinne, toivottavasti aurinko paistaa ja ruohikko viheriöi!

Terkuin Mia

Beth said...

I'm sorry to read that Spring is not springing for you Mia. I can imagine you're well and truly fed-up with snow by now. I think your new bags are very lovely, I like how all the things you make are so completely 'you' , I'd recognise something as being your design at a glace and I think that's a great thing.

Mia said...

Dear Beth,

Thank you so much! And those kind words straight back at you: a while ago my sister called me (!!) to let me know that she had seen your work at Country Living - so your beautiful work is spotted immediately around these hoods too :)

Have a great weekend!

Yours,
Mia

Anne said...

May your beautiful bags bring some spring soon and chase away all of that snow!!

You know I am a fan of these newest bags.

Here's to creating and weekends,

best wishes,

What happened to blogger?
I turned off the comment indecipherable words last month but now I can't monitor the comments (for lurking spam). I have no idea where that went to and I can't find Help or FAQ.

I haven't posted yet on the new blogger - not looking forward to it with images making trouble.

grumble...grumble

I love your birdie bags - very springy.

Mia said...

Thank you Anne,

I thought that best way to fight this late spring is to keep making happy things like I wouldn't care about the snow :)

Are you all packed yet and ready to go---? Soon... That's fantastic!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Hello Kathy,

I am also so confused with blogger! Writing a post seems to be alright (after I have found my way there via new dashboard!) but pictures were pain, they went all over the place and changed the place of the text and and and... I am fearing my next session already :) Thank you so much for the birdie-bag like, made my Saturday morning!

Happy weekend!

Yours, Mia

Donna -Little Tiny Stitches said...

Oh, the most gorgeous bags Mia :o)
And I do so love your snow (although I'm hoping for some sun just for you!)

I've just come back to blogging after a small break my dear, and blogger drove me mad with my first post the other day!! It is just *so* confusing.
I just hope we all get used to it quickly!

Lovely to be back looking at all your makes :o)

Have a happy week my dear.
Love Donna xx

Mia said...

Hello dear Donna,

And welcome back! I have been ill almost for a week *sigh* and am now slowly getting back to blog-world again. And what a change nature has taken within mere a week: snow has almost gone, yippee!

I wish you a happy and sunny weekend, and happier blogging ;) with new blogger soon! I'm going to tackle a new post next...

Yours,
Mia
