Greetings

Greetings from a happy sweatshop! I know the word doesn't particularly shout happy, but in my case it has been just that. The weather has been wonderful, hot and sunny, and I have set a studio on our new patio. With +26 and such degrees I have been sweating, smiling and working. And loving every single minute of it.


My latest creations come in these happy bags! I know, you have seen something little similar before, but these new guys haven't got that much to do with Easter, they are more summery-themed this time.


There is a happy bunny with the world's biggest carrot under his paw! He comes with a bunny&carrot themed pouch and is ever so ready to make anyone smile!


And then the little birdie with a flower...


...and not a batch without a kitty!

 

Or what could be more summery than a happy little ladybug?


And for last but not least there's a happy fox with his little birdie friend!


All have little metal pins on back for easy use


and they all can be seen more closely here.


I am now off to create some new things to show for you soon (I almost live outdoors 24/7 these days, and I will soon be known as the crazy wool-lady around this new neighbourhood too), and I wish you happy sunny and beautiful July days! See you here soon again!

Yours,
Mia

Awe they are all gorgeous Mia, especially the bunny, not that I'm biased or anything! ;)
I'm so happy that you have lots of sunshine and heat and that you are living outside, that is most definitely 'the life'!
Happy weekend my friend,

Hello Vivienne,

I think all this started with the sunshine you sent, and it has been shining since (and we hope it will last too!) - so thank you, dear friend! And I though you might like the bunny ;) no surprises there!

Have a lovely weekend soon!

Yours,
Mia

Hello Jane,

And I am so so happy too, after a BAD June we definitely deserve some happier weather! I wish this will last until October or so :)

Those bags are lovely and just perfect for the little creatures hidden inside. My favourites are the Ladybug and the Fox :)
Glad you are enjoying some kesä at last.

Hello Mia,

These are adorable, I especially like the ladybug bag. I'm so pleased you're enjoying the heat, I would feel terribly guilty complaining, yet again, about it here only to find you had rain once again. Long may it continue...for you....I'm hoping it cools off here so I can get some work done without melting.

Mia said...

Hello Beth,

I is so so so hot&humid here today, so I definitely feel for you! Too much is too much - we need some (quick) rain asap.

Wishing you a cooler week!

Yours,
Mia

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...
