Harisson Hat/Cap

Made a new hat/cap for Elliot from tuition from Rättvisa Barns (Swedish). Doesn't look exactly as hers, but Elliot loves it and there now has to be another for Zak.

Needle Felting

I haven't been very good updating my blog recently, mostly because most of what I'm busy with is craft for the school fair in June. But anyway, here are some photos...

Mother Earth in different clothes, colors and style.

Needle felted animals.

Knitted family of pigs.

The boy's latest favourite book is the story about Broken Bird who is born with only one wing. Eventually he meet Scary Bird with the same problem and there is immediate love... Very sweet little story.
As always, Zak has his own idea how things should be and his Scary Bird therefore has brown spots.

More Pressies

I who never win - have won!!! One of "Two Little Banshees" new pattern - Pippa and Polly Platypus, and some fabric. YEAH! Thank you Kate for a inspiring blog, I will definitely try your pattern soon.

On Sunday 3rd, I went to my friend Annie's birthday (hence the crocheted jar-lid and truffles in previous post). On Tuesday 5th she gave birth to a baby-boy. I'm dying to visit them for a little peep & a cuddle... Knitted a little hat and some booties for him (I hope they will fit. They do look very small...)
Yarn: Freedom Sincere 100% organic cotton
DPN and crochet-hook no. 3
Baby hat inspired of this Drops-pattern, and the booties from Life is Sweet.
(again: sorry for the strange photo. The color is lovely soft blue.)

Grumme Grön Såpa

Is there any nicer and fresher smell than the scent from Grumme Grön Såpa?!.
After picking up Elliot's new passport at the Swedish Embassy last week, we popped around the corner to Totally Swedish and a few minutes of Sweden. The boys immediately went for Marabou's chocolate and I came home with Grumme Grön Såpa and Falu RågRut. Yum!
So, now the whole house has a lovely (and Swedish) scent.

May Day Celebration

Today we celebrated May Day in Queens Wood, North London. And gosh how blessed we were with lovely sunny weather.

First the children from babies to 6 years did their dancing.

Then the adults got their chance to show off how to dance, skip, sing and weave the ribbons into lovely pattern... Well, it kind of worked (most of the time)...
Sorry for the blurry photo, but it does weave into lovely pattern - when you get it right that is.
Many thanks to the musicians that helped us all to stomp around.

All together a great day in the woods.
