Hi! Good week to everyone! Sunday was wonderful, relaxing day! I spent most of it outside with the ‘Swings’ quilt. Monday I was busy working in ‘Maherida’ and here we are already in Tuesday evening. Yesterday I found something special from my mail box so this became a Moomin post!
Sunday I started to quilt and today I have almost finished the quilting and hope to make soon the binding.
On sunday, after the breakfast I emptied the outside table and lied there first the backing fabric and tighted it with clips. Then add the wadding and the quilt top … with help of tea spoon I catched the safety pins …
… and then started to stitch!
This quilt has been a small nightmere … corners don’t match, I sew blocks two ways, fabrics were just enough … and I thought this is a piece of cake. But I do like this pattern (or as it should be)!
When I sit on our patio I see the landing air planes. They don’t make much noise so they don’t bother us and I love to imagine the stories behind the people who are coming … remembering often how I was once there coming to Crete for the first time …
Who knows if it was exactly this plane, where one little girl with red hair, was sitting and waiting to meet me …
She is Miss Myy and she came from far away Finland! She is very persistent as we Finnish women (I was told) and if she doesn’t like you, she may bite your ankle! I’m happy to say that she is not a tourist but is going to stay with me and remind me to be persistent!
Little Miss Myy came from Mia’s shop and she brought with her something really really sweet … Moomin pouch and Moomin keyring/bag charm! They have so lovely sky blue colour!
I have wanted long time something from Mia and something with Moomins and now I have = happy happy!!! Many of my blog friends know already Mia who is from Finland! But if you don’t, have a visit to her blog ‘Handmade by Mia’ which is wonderful mix of her beautiful, mostly felted crafts and little stories around her life in Finland! Mia is selling her sweet and unique cratfs all over the world till far away Japan!
There are also Moomins inside in yellow! Thank you Mia, I’m so happy to have these and this little Miss Myy is going to be my engouraging company every day! You didn’t know that when I was a little girl, I hade long and very red hair like Miss Myy’s!
Miss Myy was super cute surprise as well as the Snoopy letter! Do you write ‘normal’ hand written letters? I don’t but I should – it’s really fantastic to find a letter in your mail box … and especially with so beautiful paper! As I’m looking this photo, I got funny thought … it’s like Miss Myy is standing on a quilt with pillow! I guess I let her sleep first nights in a strange country on her own Moomin matress and hug her Moomin pillow!

And in the daytime she can fancy my violas, while I’m working in the garden. Violas are one of my favourite flowers! There is always also someone else watching me in the garden …
Nelli enjoyes wathcing what happens and what we are doing around. She used to be very scared but now she is always some where near taking care of everything what happens in her garden!
I wish you Happy First of May and hope you have wonderful spring weather for this celebration! We are here getting ready for the Easter which is this weekend. I guess we’ll celebrate and have fun with few friends! Thank you for stopping by and thank you for your always sweet comments!
