A summer silent blog!

Now I have had a really long blog-brake I guess. Just have not felt like blogging. There have been a lot of other things to focus on, and I have tried not to spend a lot of time in front of my computer. My right arm is aching and it got a lot worse after I did some painting in our living room early this summer. I have sort of been in much better shape these last months, so living on a gluten free and dairy free diet is really paying off. But at the same time I have gotten worse when it comes to my ear-problems. I have been to the ear-specialist once a week this summer because they have had difficulties getting the infection to "calm down". I also have more difficulties with my balance. Now I am really looking forward to the surgery - it is scheduled in mid September.

On July 4 my son had his third burthday - and I made him a cake - it is supposed to look like a tractor - it is the first time I have tried making a Cacas-cake. Not the easiest thing I have done, but the kids where happy!
The good thing about having birthday this time of year is that we can have the party outside.

The big event for us this summer was our first vacation ever - to the Moominworld in Finland.
It was a great trip and I took 270 pictures on the trip. The picture of me and our kids is taken inside the blue Moomins house. This is probably the only picture of me. I like to be the one
taking the pictures rather than being in front of the camera.
My daughter hugging her favorite - Snorkmaiden.


My sun was closing in on the Moomins slowly.



So what about my knitting and sewing! I made a pair of Amy Butler pants in May that I have not been using a lot because they are too big. So I have to make them smaller! But I really like them. I will take a picture me wearing them when I have made the adjustments.

I have bought lots of fabrics - like this Anna Maria Horner fabrics:


I have almost finished socks for my daughter in the June Rocking sock club kit.


I really like these colors and the pattern was both easy and pretty.


What else have I been up to? I have bought some new things for our home. Like this bench.


And this old dining table with 6 chairs - a real bargain. The fabrics on the seats was old and worn out so I have started making new ones.


And a new kitchen aid...
...that I used to make my first successful gluten free bread.

I will try to update my blog regularly again from now on

Nydelige farger på sokkene! Og det så koselig ut å besøke mummitrollene ;)

Så godt å høre at du har hatt en bra sommer. Er bittelitt misunnelig på kitchen maskinen din, lekker farge var det også på den. Ser ut for at dere har hatt en innholdsrik sommer. Håper øret blir bra etter operasjonen, jeg hadde det samme som barn, og ble fort kvitt verket etter operasjonen. Da ser jeg frem til å få se deg i den egenproduserte buksen din! :o)

Heisan, der var du endelig tilbake!! Jeg har bursdag neste uke og det eneste jeg ønsker meg er noen som kan vise meg hvordan å lage min egen blogg!! Jeg var i en kjempeflott quiltebutikk i sommer når vi var på vei til New Mexico, der hadde de alle stoffene av designerne du liker, tenkte på deg da, den hadde du nok likt!!
