Summertime....

... my enthusiasm for the crafts always fall when the temperature rises.
Of course, summer work has it's own impact on it too... 
Normally I work, when the other people spend their vacations ;o)
which is one really negative aspect of the profession, when you are a garden worker, but...
... fortunately, I no longer need to travel far to be able to enjoy the palm trees and...

... Sahara!
Jotkut lukijani muistanevat / tietänevät, että Kairo meillä täällä Kotkassa jo onkin ;o)

So daily work and this EARLY ? hot summer weather have caused that I have no much to tell about...

Although 'Gentle Art' (May's Vintage Schnibbles) is quilted, the binding is still unfinished.

The lace, which I'm crocheting is now so long that it is enough to two edges of the cloth.
Blaah! I'm sweating!

In Stitch - A - long -group we have a small (summer light) project in June.

It's Little House -pincushion from Natalie Bird's Red Home book.
Hexagons and tiny appliques and stitchings are perfect to take along outside, when it's all too hot to sit inside...

Now it's too hot to drink a cup of hot tea...
... but I want to show you...

... the finished butterfly, pattern by Arne&Carlos.

The pattern and the result was so fun that I would like to do many other butterflies... if I had only time...
By the way it was a present for one special lady and I've heard she liked it;o)

But now the lace is calling me...

I wish you a relaxing Sunday!

Ihanko Kotkasta löytyy jo Saharakin? Kairossa on kyllä tullut käytyä, mitähän seuraavaksi keksitte? "Lankarulla"työsi ja perhosesi ovat ihastuttavia ja teepannusi suorastaan hurmaava! Mutta tuo Little House-neulatyyny; minulla ei ikinä riittäisi kärsivällisyys eikä sen puoleen taidotkaan tuollaisen ihanuuden tekemiseen!

I know what you mean! Beautiful weather makes it tough to sew sometimes.

The little house pincushion is so cute!!! I may have to go pick up that book just for that! Looks like you are off to a great start too. Fun! :)
