Around the world.

Letters and packages are on the way to USA,Japan,Denmark and to the south of Sweden. A week ago we got a lovely card from our son and his wife visiting an island on the other side of world.What a difference.Here cold and very much white snow,there a lot of sunshine and white warm sand. The stamp we got on the card has an egg form.Very interesting stamp.I love stamps. Yes I´m "old" in many ways,I know ,but this is a fascinating hobby and it's worth being old in many ways.

A new week amd a new knitting for charity

A new week started and my goal for this week,in my spare time,is to knit a hood for someone in need of warm clothes. Soon we get a prince or a princess in Sweden and some of you want to do something to celebrate it.A very good idea to celebrate it is to knit or crochet something to someone in real need of warm clothes.We know their little baby is going to get so many gifts so some of us can do a gift for someone else in need of warm clothes. En uppmaning till alla som tänkt sticka/virka/handarbeta till det kungliga barnet Viktoria och Daniel snart nedkommer med. Ge istället era alster till välgörenhet, tex. till Hjälpstickan ( Det finns många hemlösa, utsatta, fattiga som behöver varma filtar, sockor, tröjor mm. Skicka sedan istället ett gåvobevis till hovet med vad ni skänkt och vart, det tror jag Viktoria och Daniel kommer uppskatta mycket mer än att få tusen babymössor skickade till sig. Sprid gärna detta vidare!

A weekend gives you an opportunity to do things you really love.I started the day with a cup of tea,some fruits and some houres of listening to radio programs.Really relaxing.Hopefully I knit some more rows on a shawl I make for charity.February is a month when I focus on charity. www.hjä Next weekend I send away 2 small packages with things. Another passion I have is writing letters and this weekend I hopefully I'm sending letters to Japan and USA. We really give each other glimpses from our everyday life and we write about our hobbies and..... Now it's more than a week without a snail mail in my postbox.Time to write and send away and in a month I hope I get a letter or two.Already I'm longing for that.Maybee you also know someone longing for a letter or a postcard from you? I wish you a lovely weekend.

February 2

A new day and we have just now ,07.52,have - 28.8 .

A day with two letters and a skein of sock yarn.

A day without a sock knitting in wintertime is not a good day.This pair is going to be for charity and I really want to do them in happy colours.Hopefully the colours are going to be even more beautiful when I take a photo of them in daylight,maybe ready to show them next week.Wellcome back.
Yesterday was a very happy day when I got 2 letters,one from Japan and one from Sweden.Now it's very common with no real stamps.Stamps can give you information of something in the country,you can get so much beauty and so much inspiration.Both the letters was so so wellcome.
