Aurelia Eglantine!!! Congratulations.
And your gift is the following pack:
There are some interesting threads apart from the variegated ones and the perle, one is an unknown thread that resembles a cord, really shiny, the other is a linen thread, both are vintage finds. I hope you will enjoy them and have fun with them.
Thank you all for the comment, I will try and fulfil some of the wishes. I cannot promise anything though :) I am working on a subversive sampler right now, it is almost ready, will post it soon, just want to make the Hungarian version as well.
And finally I would like to share a few photos with you.
I made this little cardigan for my friend, Hajnalka´s newborn son.
And I did an experiment. I have an old tablecloth that was made by my Mum. This is how she finished the edges:
I tried to copy it, and this is what I have come up with. I assume she had a smaller hook - but not sure I would be able to do it tighter. But I like how it looks, anyway. What do you think? I am planning to finish my boyfriend´s gift (that I made a while ago) with this edge.
And finally, yesterday we went to an event in the neighbouring village, the Feast of 100 cookies. This is what it looked like:
I also saw some old cookie making iron tools:
And of course, had to taste them all :D :D
Today, we went to the sea to have a picknick. It was so beautiful. Unfortunately, it is too cold to swim.
And tomorrow I am back to work. I have just started to work at an International English School in Sweden, teaching textile crafts. On Wednesday the kids will show up. I am so excited. :D :D Wish me luck. :)
