Nightlife


Summer houses in a row, originally uploaded by -syko-.

Yawn. I didn't get my beauty sleep for a couple of nights so I'm a little off. My happy little baby E is showing that he will son be 2½. He has major mood swings during the day, cry attacks at daycare and apparently processes this during night. Last night he woke up several times screaming: "No, it's mine! I had it first!" Which led to me lying awake thinking about the best ways to arrange papers for the bookkeeper.

Next week I will quilt and write the instructions for the baby quilt I am making for the LARK book (Baby quilts) I will participate in. It will be published some time next Autumn. They wanted us to send a baby photo of ourselves so I have had a fun time looking through old pictures. My mum has tried a lot of different hairstyles :) I hope to show you some quilt progress next week! Cross your fingers that Aurora does her job well!

I have added a few fishing boats and Summer houses to the shop.

Happy weekend!

I LOVE these houses. I can't wait to receive mine. I am soooo excited!

Ya know, my little 2 year old gal, Mia is going through the exact same thing. I thought that the sleeping would go into an all night mode by this age.

Have a great weekend,
Rikkianne

Eftersom jag såg i Din etsy-shop att Du skrev en rad eller två på svenska så tar jag för givet att Du förstår mig nu. :-) Bor Du i Finland?

Men jösses vilket konstigt sätt jag har att ta kontakt på! :-))

Men! Såhär var det jag skulle skriva egentligen:

JÖSSES vad mycet fint Du har här! Vilken begåvning! Heja! Jag trillar av stolen!!!

I'll be back!

Don't get me started on 2yr olds and how they don't sleep!!!! :)

My cushion arrived - wow wow wow, I love it sooooooo much (and so does Leo, and he's the one who needed to approve) Thank you Kajsa, you're too clever for words x

Oh, lack of sleep is hard! Hope you have a lovely deep sleep tonight!

Oh I am completely blown away with your stuff. Just had a look at your etsy shop. I love the E is for... thingies and the scarves. I must spend a bit more time going through it all, and I presume you will take commissions. I think what is so appealing is the simplicity of the idea, with the humour and fabric choices. It's so unpretentious! I am just starting out and hot water bottle covers are the only applique I have done, with other simple bits and pieces for myself. I am planning and slowly preparing for a quilt but I haven't decided what I want to make a new one for. I'd value any comments or tips if you visit.
