It's August already, I cannot believe it! That said I am almost happy it is as the weather is far better than it was in June&July but still. August is not quite autumn yet but... Here in Finland schools are starting again in a few weeks, almost everyone have had their holidays and nights are getting darker...Scary. I do not mind autumn when it's sunny, dry and crisp which it mostly here isn't. It usually is rainy and windy and all this will end up to winter...huh. But IT'S NOT AUTUMN YET so I'll show you something else instead and we'll forget this issue altogether for a few months still. So quick, quick, quick something I really like... Hmm..stripes? Yes! Matchy-matchy? Definitely! My boys? Perfect, here we go:
Nephew-godfather fashion check in Summer 2012. I LOVE IT. And I love blue and white together, and add a little red...
Thank you so much Glenys! I am so happy to receive this award, but as have had one earlier already, I am just thanking you dearly this time, and moving on to these colors:
...the great color-combo of blue-red&white, and that's so hot these days as the UK is the most wanted place right now! The Olympics! Oh how I would like to be there, now more than ever as they started to compete in that fantastic stadium too. I am big fan of all Athletics like high jump, javelin throw, decathlon... And we as Finns even have a few great candidates there for medals - I know teams like GB and USA have many golds already, but we're still waiting our first(medal). It might be necessary to say that I love the games come medals or not but it would be the cherry on top. I am now off to sofa one eye on telly and other choosing great colors for some new stripes...
...and I wish you a wonderful Friday and happy weekend soon too! Let's all enjoy the games and cheer to all wonderful athletes!

You defintely have the colours for Team GB!!
Good luck to the Finns. Team GB are gradually moving up the medal table. I'm really enjoying the games, we have them on TV here from morning to night. :)
Happy weekend Mia! (and let's not talk about Autumn YET)

Hi Vivienne,

I apologize the autumn-part, I just was so shocked that it's August already! Sun shines here and weather is great so no worries yet... I am off to see the games now with my knitting (and a bowl of candy) - the best Friday!

Happy weekend, dear friend!

Hi Mia.
I'm a big fan of stripes too - blue & white always look so fresh & clean together.
I'm catching as much of the Olympics as I can - it's been amazing to watch.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Hello dear Anne,

Those really are the colors for "now" - we're so into these games here (even no medals for our team yet), so much fun!

L had a big kiss from you, and sends many back to you! Lovely weekend!


Mia said...

Hello Teje,

We're waiting for looooong summer here too, June&July were so disappointing so sunshine should go until October at least ;)

Happy weekend!


Mia said...

Mia said...

Oh how many happy comments "the boys" have received, thank you Helen!

Wishing you the loveliest August too!


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...
