Summer at its best

Every day we wake up to lovely, sunny and warm weather. it's the most wonderful feeling. You never know what kind of summer you'll get in Norway. We certainly learn to appreciate the sunny days.Here are some shots from my yard..

I am working on one more little thing these days: AI bought one of these things called "Strikkelise" in Norwegian, I think the technique is called french knitting in English. I'm use gold coloured yarn and it will be a necklace in the end. They say the big rave with this craft was last year and that now it is slowing down.. Who cares; I'm not always that quick at catching on to such things. Sometimes "everybody" try - and get to love- new techniques that pop up- like needle felting... Let me tell you; i tried it and found it to be Booooring. That is , I love the result people getwhen making something needle felted, but I get impatient while working on it, so I think I'll leave that kind of thing to others..
