Angel Is Here

I have finally finished MyAngelProject. I have visited library several times but I still have not found the book from which I got the idea and original pattern. I will keep on looking at it and hope some day it is there and I can tell you the name of the original designer.

Hello everyone! How are we? What has happen since MyLastBlogPost? Well, well well... This year we made some kind of record with the snow. We had it for about 200 kg per each square meter. Yes, 200 kg on every single square meter of the ground. So, on the 4th of May we got pouring rain. Before that I still had much over half of MyGarden under 20-40 cm snow cover. We got also another day with pouring rain showers. It all means that today there are just tiny stubborn snow spots here and there in MyGarden. So, since MyLastBlogPost I've been gardening a lot.

Only few days ago all the waters got free from the ice. MySea Gulf of Bothnia had 70 cm thick ice cover and many ice breakers were still needed in May to keep industrial harbors open.

So far the floods are not as bad as expected... so far...

TheSnow belongs to our arctic spring. All the creatures are busy in breeding and nesting. DearNuka is sometimes a bit confused because of them. Remember, She was fixed, so She has no idea about it all...

These creatures don't mind if it is a bit chilly. They don't let the arctic climate to stop them. They are very determined.

I am happy to announce: It is not all about TheSnow anymore!

Spring is also a great time to make HomeMadeTea for the flu seasons. We pick up the annual growth buddings of the spruce. (You need permission for that from the land owner in Finland!!!) They need to be new, fresh and still light green. Then I just put them in tiny plastic bags and straight into freezer. I put ½ dl in one bag. It is one portion for one tea pot.

When you need them you can use them as frozen. When you pour the water over them make sure it is not boiling / too hot. Too hot water makes it all to taste just bitter and awful. After 3-5 minutes you have excellent drink for ease your stubborn flu.

Framing No2 -tutorial

When I framed the 1st bird canvas  I promised to show you how exactly I did it. There is Framing No1 -tutorial for this same style of framing which you make traditionally by using just thread. Here I use a bit modern method.

You start it as normal by placing the canvas, frame and cardboard together.

After making it sure it all is on the right place like you want; turn up the work.

Use SilverTape to fasten the canvas on the cardboard. Remember to pull & tighten at every point. If you ask help for this, working with SilverTape is much easier. Start with the longer edges...

... and go through each corner / edge.

At the end secure & hide it all by SilverTape.

If you have background cardboard; place it at the end. Now you are finished.

Birds Collection

Last August I started tapestry project with birds. Earlier I showed you the 1st finished one. Then I forgot to add each one; one by one as planned. So, here are they all four all together. They decorate MyLibrary's doorway. We all really like them. I've been inspired to add more birds to MyHomeDecoration....
