First we moved to our new not quite finished house and then we left for the vacation. We left everything unpacked and just took off towards Finland.
Anton and Oskar came with us
We enjoyed the finish nature
life on the island
Anton and Oskar enjoyed their friend Elli
new and old finish architecture, church in Helsinki
staircase in Design Museum in Helsinki
and everybody loves ice-cream
the marketIt was good to see so many friends and family. Big thank you and hugs for all of you who gave us bed and food and good company.
it was a quick trip to Edinburgh over the last weekend. But I hardly saw anything of the City, instead I saw my friends at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival!
At the sight of so much yarn our hearts started to beat faster …
In every corner you saw people knitting, what a lovely scene
Saturday evening was reserved for a woolly program, a ca-baa-ret with Felicity Ford
and what does one do at the girls night out? Knit of course!
On Sunday evening it was time for our own cabaret. It was our last evening together but we all will meet in Shetland this fall, what a comfort!
wish you all woolly, warm week
A quick visit to the finnish winter, a dark winter as it is in January. The daylight was just a short period of the day but the winter days were even in -20°C beautiful.
during the breakfast we could watch the nature documentary live outside the kitchen window
I loved the Jyväskylä airport’s crafts
and indeed, the sun showed itself
back in Switzerland it is all about sunny winter days
and my latest wreath – a winter wreath
have a nice week
early Sunday morning we enjoyed a walk by the Lake of Zürich.
I could have sat there and watch the sun rise all day but we had a busy schedule visiting family and friends which was as nice as the sunrise.
You realize, we had a sunny day!! Is the summer finally arriving?
I wish you too a sunny week
There is nothing like finnish summer; the birch trees, light nights, all those lakes and of course family and friends! We had such a good week in Finland.
