The last Friday in June

A lovely Friday -the last in June.
A sunny morning and day.
Breakfast in the garden
Made a bookmark this morning.
I was buying food before lunch
The postman came with a lovely card from Mimi on the Philippines.A card full of blue sky,blue sea,beautiful buildings and full of joy and friendship.Thank you Mimi.
I do one more bookmar now while I'm listening on the radion-a man is talking about his life and experiencies of birds,of illness,of life,of friendship,of hope....
We are going to buy a ring to my elder son's girlfriend.
We are going to have dinner in the garden all 4.
We are going to follow the footballmatch between Germany and Argentina
We are going to sleep in the night full of daylight.

I wish you a nice Friday too

Project spectrum -blue

The Project spectrum with the colour blue for June

I love the blue colour very very much.My swap partner Randi in Denmark sent me 2 skeins of yarn in blue-one in Alpacha and one from Opal.They are going to be as parts of socks.I have Alpacha in another blue and the combination is going to be very good.The other skein I can combine with a varigated yarn.

Tea-already served.Good Earl Grey.The details for the summertable.A soft drink.Small letters and nice noteblock.
Thank you Randi
I hope you have got my package too.

Summer SP on Crichetville and relaxing in my hammock

I'm so happy because my Summer SP on Crochetville sent me the things I really love.Candles so wonderful during our long dark winter.Already in August when we get dark nights I love to have a candle on the table.And the lovely yarn.First of all the turqouise yarn in cotton,exactly for a a little doily.The pink yarn I think I can do some rose doilies .And the beads.The brown/gold I think I use for a doily or for wristwarmersThe patterns are so inspirating.

During an hour in the middle of the day I was relaxing in the hammock.It's so wonderful to see the sky and listen to the birds and feel the warm summer wind.Just to be,not anything else and I really could hear what I thought and I got fresher thoughts.....

Catch the day/the hour/the minute/the second.

Crochet links and One-skein-swap

I found a good link with some free patterns in crochet.Perhaps you find something to do.

And another free only today- a sweet bookmark

I have done the front of my bag so now I begin with the back.A nice knitting.We still have a lovely summertime so I hope I get it ready very soon.

Yesterday I'v got a little skein,40g,Musique from Christal Palace-45% acrylic,40% wool,15% cotton in One-skein-swap.I knitted wristwarmers in it.It was so short -about 50 yards so i couldn't do so much.The yarn is ok but it was hopeless to rip up and it's a little to much combination for me.I never buy this type of yarn myself.I often use cotton or 100% wool or silk.The best for our climate is wool for the winter and cotton for the summer.Sometimes I use a combination of wool ans silk.

Soon I'm going out for a walk,a lovely walk along the blur river.

A nice blog where I found the KAL

Here you can find what you need if you want to knit this bag.

A new knitted bag

The new knitting for me during the WM in football.Yes I needed a new thing to concentrate on and I found a KAL and a pattern a little odd and I think nice.Now I'm on the third pattern row on this.I use natural coloured cotton,Järbo 12/6 and I knit with 2 threads on 4 1/2 mmm.

We have had the lightest night of the year now and it turns to darker periods.We have had a lovely time during the Midsummer and I could be knitting in the garden too.The Midsummer is really a magic time with the nights without darkness,the birds singing and all the flowers that come after a long winter with snow and cold times.

Sweden is not longer in WM.Now I can enjoy every game.I liked the meeting between England and Ecuador but the meeting between Portugal and Holland was really not but a chaos and not a good sportmenship at all.

Today I knit a little and hopefully take a long walk.

Ullas Fiber Blog

Dear all

I mean bloggers.

A word

Dear all

2 bliggers,Sue and Yasmin have this wonderful little "game"
While catching up on blogs this evening, I saw this meme here and there. I'll give it a whirl...

Please leave a one-word comment that you think best describes me--it can only be one word long. Then copy and paste this into your blog so that I may leave a comment about you.

This is not so much about fishing for compliments as it is an exercise showing how hard it is to use just one word to describe someone! Give it a try & I'll do the same for you if you're so inclined.

I hope you enjoy it and I'm looking forward hearing from you.Go on with this please.
Have a nice day/evening

Blue and yellow

This is a doily in blue and yellow from "Sömnad Handarbete nummer 2 1981".I made it in aida-12 squares/1" and the embroidery is done on a danish thin cotton from Handarbejds fremme,a just wonderful yarn to work with.The blue and yellow are the colours of the flag of Sweden.

My youngest son has his graduation on Friday and we had many flags around our village and nearly every present they did get had ribbons in these colours.We are so happy he had his graduation with good results and he still has the trust on the future.
And both my sons are at home until August.

I'm also a member of Project spectrum and the colour for June is blue.
The sky is blue.
My favourite colours is blue
The filet square also has a part in a blue colour I love most of all.

Now I have 2 days more on the work before my holidays.
