I'm feeling so overwhelmed by all the projects I could start - it's almost paralyzing! I debated starting out with a small project, but in the end decided to dive back into a UFO. I started these bear paws for one of a pair of twin blue and plaid quilts for my little brother in the summer of 2005. My plan includes sashing and three borders - so unusual for me!
Here are a few more photos from last week's travels with my mom. The first is Häme Castle in Hämeenlinna between Helsinki and Tampere. The next one is the wooden church in Kristinastad, followed by the little wooden carriage huts around the church in Narpes. The last is a mini princess cake in the shape of a monster from my local bakery (I became a big fan of these cakes at my host family's birthday parties as a student in Stockholm ten years ago and my mom even made one for my birthday once and also ordered one from here another year).
