Take a Moment to Enjoy the View...

When life is really driving you to distraction, isn't it nice to just sit and relax with a cup of tea and a lovely package of goodies from your friend in Finland. Outi from White Country was kind enough to know my personality and send me items in our swap that I would have bought for myself.

A gorgeous green polka dot square from Greengate (I will treasure this as there are no Greengates here in Canada), a lovely hanky with crocheted trim, a handmade pincushion that is already displayed on my desk and gorgeous magazines.


How wonderful is that? Thank you so much, Outi.


I am still crocheting hexagons. With a passion. And loving it. 'nuff said.


Did I mention we have been babysitting a pug? No, thought not. But I have been terribly busy with this little guy as the cat has brought home fleas and they are on the dog and I have had to do a major clean/spray/greenhouse gas emission to the whole house. In the process, I have washed and dryed every blanket the poor thing has come in contact with. Which meant about 12-14 blankets. Well, I am a knitter, crocheter, fibre lover and some of the blankets are wool. Wool does not like agitation or heat. So, unfortunately, there has been some re-sizing done to some of the blankets in our house. Not happy but what can you do? Needs must or something like that.


And how is your week shaping up?

Just apply some Advantage to them both and vacuum everything every day and you shouldn't need the deadly chemicals.
Very nice gifties. Still looking for the magasine.

What a cute stack of things Outi sent. I love her blog, and have enjoyed getting to know her through there. By the way - that is an adorable desk area - love the file folders and their holder.

We own a pug - such delightful little dogs.

Elizabeth is very right in her advice - Advantage and a vacuum does wonders. Hope things have gotten back to normal for you!
