My Mom Visited!!

My mother and step dad (feels so wrong to call him that, he's awesome!) Hasse visited us for week a short while back and not only did we have a lovely time (despite a rather intense sand storm for a few days) but she also taught me how to crochet! I had no idea how fun and relaxing this activity was (relaxing after I'd learned not to grip the needle like my life depended on it, I bent it a couple of times actually ^^ ).

We made flowers!! Lot's and lots of flowers! Mom made the hearts for me and a few of the flowers but I did make quite a few of them myself =)


My first flower to the left and to the right of it, my most advanced one so far ^^


Satellite images of the sand storm that blew over while they where here, everything was beige with sand from Sahara for a few days. Malta is the group of little islands circled in red =)


Mom also brought a fantastic gift! A Gutermann thread set, which is pretty much the dream to own! =D
Behind each of the threads is the color number, so you don't even have to save the old spools, you can just look at the number to replace a color or buy more, super handy! 


Today's confession: Sometimes I open it just to stroke the pretty colors for a while, really makes me happy and calm =) Thank you mom and I miss you already! <3

  1. Glad to read aboutnyour new skill! And what a fab box, better than a fancy make up kit. I totally understand that you may want to handle the spools, they are so nice!
