First Two Together...

Greetings from Finland!

This is very exciting... see the blocks together... and notice:
I'm again doing something very pastel and romantic...
but this time 
I'm adding some my own memories and some finnish words...
maybe you'll all learn some finnish words during our journey;)
After previous posting I have found out that  
Patty cakes are Muffinsit in finnish
and
last time I heard a real star (= not me) singing...
singing in the rain, just singing...
was in August 2010 in U2 concert. Then Bono sang that song... and of course I and others were joining...
THAT I remember for the rest of my life!
So you'll learn something about me too;)

I wish you happy stitch-a-long memories!!!
