Hrrrrrrr. Get your warm winter clothes ready, we will jump up to north, to Norway and meet Inger from Ingermaaike. She makes lovely and warm felt accessories; scarves, wrist warmers, necklaces, flowers, bags...you name it and from her other shop you will find some whimsical felt animals. And lately she has been very busy with yarn spinning.
Have fun browsing on her shop!
And have lucky Friday 13th! :)ingermaaike.etsy.com
7.40 and my alarm wakes me, I crawl out of bed to shower and then wake the boys
The beginning of my adventurous and very glamarous day up in Norway where we moved to this summer from Holland.
My chair has been vacated by the Bruce dog who uses it as his bedduring the night
And I plonk down into it with my coffee and start up my computer the say hello to the EST thread ladies and see if something has miraculously sold from my shop.
My hubby will have lit the fire before he has left for work
The boys leave for school at 8.30 and before they leave I check the temperature
They walk up our drive where the bus for school will pick them up.
Once they have gone the dogs will continue looking at me till
I let them out the door where they go for a run around in our garden while doing their buisness, of course we didn't do our dishes yesterday so they are patiently waiting for me..
Then it is time to do some work, I have a custom order for a bunch of flowers so I select my wool from the cupboard
and set to work at the desk that is overlooking the valley below
In the mean time the woodstove needs to be fed wood so that is a nice break from the endless jabbing the wool for flower making. After an hour or 2 I decide to go for a walk with the dogs, they love racing about in the fluffy snow and walking through it is great fun for me too.
The bread here in Norway is not quite my kind of bread so that means I make my own, today it has drooped over the edge of the form, njumm extra crust!
At 14.45 the boys arrive home and as it is too cold to play outside they first do homework and then read in the huge pile of comic books they have.
This is for me time to be spinning and I have started knitting a jumper from the wool I have spun.
My sweet hubby arrives home at 16.30 and I start preparing dinner, weeat early so the kids have time to watch some tv before heading off to bed.
In the evening I knit or spin some more keeping an eye on the EST thread while my hubby surfs the net and around 10 pm we head off for bed. Usually we watch a series or movie in bed before drifting off to sleep.
