August has started beautifully here, it's +26C as I type, and it's been like this for a few days...and no end to be seen! It's fantastic, and if you ask me, this could continue for months still. This year July turning August wasn't that bad as the summer has been beautiful, but there's a certain nostalgia in the air still: the schools and the kindergartens are starting this week, a sure sign of autumn.
Even I'm not going to school this autumn, I still love to shop some new pens and papers. I have tried to live up to my promise to write more real letters (just posted two yesterday!), and just got some new pretty stationary and some colorful pens. I use these fiber pens all the time, and keep misplacing them too... Now I have a box with paper&envelopes&pens - I can't loose the whole box surely?
Trying out my new, colorful pens got me into stripey-mood, and with this weather I didn't feel like playing with wool, I dug into my fabric stash instead. And oh yes, stripes did I find!
I made two little pouches and a birdie-keyring, and there are still some little scraps left. With these happy birdies in love (who already flew into my shop) I wish you a wonderful new August-week, may it be sunny and pretty!
