Yarn along and spring in the air

Do you knit all day long? I don't. I knit on the same thing for weeks (or years ...) because I'm into so many things. Earlier I used to believe I should try to focus on one single thing instead of trying "everything", but over the last years I've come to the conclusion that this is who I am, this is how I do things. I'd get bored if I was only doing one single thing.


So I'm knitting and crocheting. I'm sewing and selling. I'm gardening and cooking and baking. I'm photographing, I'm playing, I'm painting, I'm crafting. I'm beading. I'm ... trying new things. Re-discover old things.

At the moment I'm knitting in Malabrigo worsted, my favourite, and reading. Nora picked the flower. Vitsippa, in Swedish.

More yarn along over at Ginny's.

Leaves and a dog

This time of the year we focus so much on the flowers. I do so too. I love the tulips in my garden, the lilacs (not in bloom yet), the lily of the valley behind our house. I dream of them during the dark winter months and I look at them, touch them, smell them (and take photos of them) in Spring time.

But during the last few days I've been looking at the trees. Aren't they amazing? The buds and the first, small leaves, they're beautiful just like the flowers. This is the maple beind our house.


and a favourite dog ;-)

Spring time

The best thing about being born in May is that people are happy this time of the year. After a long, cold, dark winter it's now sunshine, light evenings, birds singing, flowers everywhere. And people are outside, smiling and talking and being friendly. It's a happy time.


The flowers in my garden are in bloom. Suddenly there's so much to do. Soil and manure, plants and seeds, weed and bugs. Laundry drying outside in the wind. Nora: Playing outside all day, never want to go in, never want to go to bed, falling asleep in a few minutes time.
