Let's begin with My Favorite Things!
... and you'll learn again some finnish words ;o)
My favorite ice cream is (has been over 40 years) herkkutrio (one product of finnish dairy, Valio). There is three different taste in it... strawberry, vanilla and chocolate. Unfortunately it's no longer taste as good as a kid, but it taste good enough. Especially when the summer day is hot!
Oh, I already miss the Summer...
At this moment outside is -7 degrees of Celsius. It's snowing and blowing. So when you have skied or walked in such weather as it's now, nothing is better than a cup of really hot chocolate... in finnish kuuma kaakao. I changed the place of the words, because I didn't want to cover that pretty rose on the mug.
And if you don't want to go outside, nothing is better than take a cup of choko and curl up to read your favorite armchair. Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is in finnish Ylpeys ja ennakkoluulo AND a good book is hyvä kirja. It's funny, I have only english version of it at my bookshelf, but I have never read it in full. I purchased it when I saw it as a series in TV.
Oh, Mr Darcy was Colin Firth!
Hopefully you aren't totally bored with my tale, because it'll continue...
I've thought about just sew two stripes instead of three... BUT I'm not yet quite sure about that! Maybe those alterations are too much and it's not Annie's lovely pattern anymore...
Chookyblue, shall I get one mark (D or J) beside my name? ;o) please...
And I would like to have more of these lovely new fabrics of Moda.
I have only one layer cake of 'Papillon'. Perhaps in March there is hope to get them more...
In the end some news from my Gardener's Journal...
... I started to quilt it by hand, the sashings on the middle block, but it took too much time
(and I'm little afraid of Chookyblue's whip)
so I'll machine quilt it, except the outer borders. They I'll quilt by hand ;o)
I have a goal to FINISH myGJ in MARCH!!!
So keep all your fingers crossed that I can make it!
Thanks for your support & Happy Stitching to you all!!!
