Summer

Oh summer, heat is not my thing... I'm gathering strength to move a huge bolt of fabric and cut 40 metres (will definitely leave that for the late afternoon.) Now I'll resume my summer struggle – get rid of bugs of this mini rose.

What an amazing print - is it one of yours?

Beautifull light and pictures.

Karen said...

Emily Elizabeth – Isn't it lovely? It's a piece of vintage fabric I've just bought.
Helene – I love the light in my working place. I'm lucky to have large windows that let in lots of light (and cold in winter!)

Cynthia – aarrgg me carga el calor! Pero al menos las calles y lugares con menos gente son un agrado en esta época.
El género lo compré en Bandera :)

agnes – You get snow in Hungary during winters, right? I can imagine you must end up hating it.

yes, we usually do have snow in winter, but not all winter long, it's on and off... right now, it's off, so we enjoy an early spring, but it's expected to get very chilly again, in a matter of days... :)
