Where is the summer???

003

Today it has been a heavy rain all day.  I start to wonder whenever we will have summer here in Norway.  I am so tired of all this rain.  Luckily I have booked summer and beach in a couple of weeks, and I am so looking forward to that.

So what to do this evening.  Light a lot of candles, some snacks and redwine together with a stitchery. Hoping there is a good movie on the tv.

Spending time in the sewingroom is perfect when it is raining.  Now I have made a total of eight sets of four coasters (total of 32 coasters).  Maybe making them in some other colours tomorrow. 

Saying for today:

Every kind of weather is perfect sewing weather - in one way or another :-)

Sparkly candles, a glass of wine, the sound of the rain plus a lovely stitchery... sounds like the PERFECT evening to me!

Here in the USA, we are starved for rain. We are in a drought. Our rivers look like streams and we haven't mowed grass in weeks. There is a burn ban in almost every county of the states. Please send rain our way!

Hope your evening is wonderful. It's always good to get cozy and snuggle up to a good movie and some stitching.

Please send the rain to the United States mid-section. We are in a serious drought situation and rain would be a welcome thing.

Ditto Hanne! I must say I like the way you spend a rainy evening, it looks very inviting.

I think Summer has decided to take a holiday this year so Spring and Autumn are filling in the days between them :-)

Lovely sewing! Now my headache has gone I plan a whole day in the craft room. I am looking forward to it. Your sewing with candlelight looks so cosy.

Du kan si hva du vil om været, men at det er perfekt syvær er i alle fall sikkert. Skal si du bruker tida godt, sånn produktivitet er bare imponerende!
Og du skaper jo koselige rammer selv om regner høljer ned ute!

At last summer arrived in England last week, so it might still happen in Norway too! It looks so cozy inside and I love the view from your house :-)

May I sew wish we could exchange weather. Rain is my fav, we just never get enough. We have had hot sunshine for most of the season, in Ontario. When you go to the beach you push your weather my way and I will push mine yours.
Your coasters are lovely!

Just think of how much sewing you can do and the gardens don't need watering.
