Anyone else getting tired of Winnie the Pooh? I don't mean the book and drawings by A.A Milne, I mean the postcards, toys, books, children's clothes and so on decorated with the Disney one. What is it about that bear, really? I have been trying to find stuff with Moomins on for a few swaps and you would think that it's easy to find Moomin products in there home country. It's about 100 times easier to find stuff with that Pooh bear on, and they have the same stuff in all shops. I guess you can find them where you live too. From now on I will try to be a consious consumer and buy local stuff when it is possible. Really. I hate not to find anything local in the bookshop! I was looking for elks the other day for a swap with my lovely new friend Didine in Belgium. I thought I had seen some nice Swedish linen fabric with elks printed on it in the local fabric store. -No, we haven't got any of that, but we do have a fabric with the Koda bear on it, and look, there is a few elks on it too!! Sigh...
September has been like Summer here, big E picked beautiful flowers in the garden in the weekend. Global warming? I hope not beacuse we are enjoying this weather!
Today I finished two more house bags, to send to my Mum's new shop. She sold one of my pouches yesterday! Curious people keep dropping in to look at the stuff though they haven't really opened the shop yet... A good sign anyway :)
