Not much sewing to report here - recovering from a cold/flu and the new semester is already in full gear, but I have a few small gifts to make this week, so hopefully there will be something to post about soon! In the meantime, here's a picture of the finished log cabin quilt that was truly a group project by Lappvärk here in Vaasa. I posted a little more about it here.
Now for the world's worst craft attempt... Lappvärk's fearless leader (who reads this blog - hej Lilian!) got us started on some little trolls this evening. Somehow I think my attempt was a waste of pantyhose, wool, and thread. I'd better stick to the quilting for now. I can live with this failure. I have other talents (or at least that's what I tell myself.) At least this made me laugh! (Excuse the photo - the background is just a corner of the chaos of my desk at the moment! Believe me, it makes the potato troll head look a little better because it distracts the eye.)
Tonight I saw the northern lights for the first time! A friend (and the world's best neighbor) knocked on my door, just back from a run, to let me know. I threw on some warm clothes and went out in search of a dark place to see them from. I felt like such a silly tourist just standing there with my jaw hanging open while people walked by about their normal Sunday night business, but I didn't care! Hopefully I won't have to wait another 32 years to see them again.
