Mother, Roses and Bunny Holders

So here is the wonderful Alchemy Silk Purse in a wonderful stingy lime, with a black satin ribbon. Yepp, the Blouse Bunny Holders. The yellow band is temporary, and used for the shoulderstraps as a measure, still not done. And - it is hard to make a great fit with it, so I have done some alterations as usual, but this has triggered a new knitting craze in me. I have so much great silk. It is slow here. The summer reminds me it is short and wonderful, and research is still going on full time. And life goes on Mom is here, we are going to a funeral tomorrow. Our dear uncle, Knut passed away. So my summer roses, the moss-rose Henri Martin suits well in days of sadness. Just imagine your life-partner for more than 50 is years is gone. Poor Viola. Well, between showers, and clouds the sun shows is warm face, and the helicopters ar buzzing together with the bumblebees, after all - 1200 meters (less than an english mile) from here the first EEC-top meet will take place, with all European leaders. They should relax in my garden instead, take a knit and a caffe latte. PS. No, the machine-knitting is "resting" for space at the moment dear April. But not forgotten. And dear Sue, finally the package is on its way, sorry for delay. Well, we are preparing for great adventures... The blog will be a bit slow in the summer. But much more to come. Many of my UFO's are getting closer to FO's. Hang in there! And enjoy the great summer. It is short, but wonderful.

50 år - det är en livstid!

jag tror inte man kan föreställa sig hur det känns att förlora en partner efter så många år:(
