Some parcels arrived this week.
First the beautiful summer quilt from Wendy. I am very lucky that I was her partner this season. The quilt is very, very nice. The piecing, the appliqué and the quilting are perfect. I love it and it hangs already in my sewing room. Funny that the summer quilt I made has nearly the same color scheme.

I got the autumn delivery from my yarn suscribtion with a nice extra skein (the blue one). All the colors are so yummy, I could start straight away some new socks or a scraf. I could ... if I didn´t have around 50 (!) other projects on my queue.
I finished the socks, which yarn I had dyed with Kool Aid. This time it was grape flavor.
I found the pattern at Ravelry which has around 1500 free sock pattern so it was hard to choose only one. But with the new yarn I got this week, I should be able to have a go at some more patterns.
I knitted the socks for my mum if she wants them.

School starts tomorrow after the summer break. Today we have been packing my DS´s school back pack with new exercice books, pencils,... but still enthousiasm has not appeared yet! Let´s see what the first week will bring.

I wish you a nice week too.

What a nice sunny wall hanging! I love how she twisted the centers in the middle of the flowers, it really makes them pop.

I just love how the yard took hold of the food dye. We had tried to use koolaid to dye wood for the birds but the color wasn't very intense so we didn't bother after that. Great to see it works for something. :D
