Sun shine on me

We've had wonderful weather here for a while already. I didn't dare to blog about it first as it could so easily disappear, but since this is the fifth day in a row over +20C I think it is safe to announce: Summer is here! Finally!

It is green and pretty everywhere, although most flowers haven't appeared yet, but look at those leaves! Simply fantastic!

I got our windows cleaned during last weekend too and wow! what a difference! You would think that a newly done house + new windows = clean but uh-oh, no. There was still that renovation dust inside (and out) and overall they just needed a good wash. And they look fantastic now  - I highly recommend this, even a gray day looks better with sparkling windows! And I am not sure if it's the light coming in or what but I have been putting together some pretty bright and happy summer bags.

These bags were made with a smile in my face and I wish it shows. The colors are bright, happy Bob-birds are there, and size is just great for those summer days when all you need is a wallet, phone and good book and you are ready to go.

Happy colors, cottons paired with some wool-blends and needle felted birds. You simply can't go wrong!

And as you all know my strongest point is not to make one or maybe two bags *ahem* so more still on my desk, on their way to my shop here:

Happy days! I wish your days are warm and beautiful too!

Sunny Tuesday!

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...
