In way over my head

First, this post is NOT related to the doughnut post whatsoever (I haven’t had any) 😀 But, I am going to admit that the year without any treats is not going to work.

I was fine about two weeks, but then I found myself cheating and hiding stuff. I didn’t like it at all. The amounts didn’t increase or anything, but it was my pride that wouldn’t let me be open about it; I had announced that I was going to do this, so I didn’t think I had a choice. I’d rather be honest with myself and my family, and enjoy a “legal” treat every now and then than having to sneak around over a cookie or two.

So, the candy-free year is back to being just that; a CANDY-free year.

Ice cream rules.

Mmm… doughnuts

This is one of the Finnish traditions celebrating May 1st. Homemade sugar doughnuts and mead. Yummy!!


Aand done

OK, all done now. Took a little longer than I expected, with all kinds of other stuff going on. But here she is now, ready for a trip to the UK. 🙂


Wow, that was fast

I received an order for a rug; 120 cm in diameter. So, I ordered the materials on tuesday and THEY WERE AT MY DOORSTEP ON WEDNESDAY! I’d say that’s fast delivery 🙂

Now all I have to do is wet them and dry them, and then get crocheting! The rug should be on its way (to a nursery in London) in little over a week.

Stay tuned for pics of the process, and of course the finished rug!
