Snow is still here. Good thing the Swedes painted many of their houses red, they stand out and are a cheery colour click amid all the white. These two photo's show how pretty it can look when the sun shines...and how dull it can look when it doesn't !
I have to say, I long for colour, I always do this time of year. This week I will buy some little pots of primulas to paint.
Another Birthday, my youngest is now nine. Time goes by so fast !
She had a lovely day with lots of presents and cake !!
I had to take a photo of these beautiful shiny parcels before she tore them open !
The "Birthday tree"!! Which had some little parcels underneath.
The girls have been enjoying cross country skiing, sledging and ice skating. I'm afraid I have done very little by way of winter sports. I have been out walking as often as possible, still trying to loose those Christmas kilo's !! Not easy when people keep having birthdays and I keep eating cake !!
More terrible blurry images of windows painted with acrylics...just to show I am working...but not very hard !!
and I have been sewing more little dolls," Swedish forrest folk" on my new sewing machine, using vintage fabrics.
