Felting, Birthday and National Day

Our craft group is busy making craft for the upcoming Summer Fair and here is the result of one of our gatherings - wet-felted balls and some brooches and hair-ties.
I made a needle-felted "bird-hanging" that we like very much.
Being Swedish and living abroad sometimes makes me very Swedish. So last Saturday I got the whole family + mother-in-law in the car to visit the Swedish School in London to celebrate Svenska Flaggans Dag or the Swedish National Day. Elliot and I really enjoyed the Swedish-ness and all the lovely songs - I'm not so sure about the rest... I even had a little tear in my eyes when singing Idas sommarvisa, Du Gamla Du Fria etc...

Elliot also had his 5th birthday and had a great time - and is all in a sudden VERY big, with a bit of an attitude...
Celebration flags
Astronaut Suit I spent the night before to sew.

...and at last a quick birthday present I made last night to one of the teachers at school. Tutorial found here. Internet is great!
