Nero's Post II (2013-2015)

by Teje Karjalainen



Hi! Happy October! I’m late; it’s already evening but I want to join my favourite Tuesday parties so here we go …

fabric basket

I have a secret knitting project going on and wanted to make a basket for my yarns and needles … but then as so often I thought I could make an other with other fabric and so on, so this went to my shop.

Every Tuesday there are many link parties and one of them is ‘Fabric Tuesday’. I have been linking there all my blogging time and some of my works have been featured. Today I was happily surprised seeing  that my, oups Nero’s  ‘Bird on my Pillow’ is featured there! Thank you so much Megan and Heather! These sweet ladies are making some changes in their blog ‘Quilt Story’ and they asked what we would more or less … I was thinking and didn’t find anything I would like to change. They have just perfect portion of everything!

Sorry that this time I don’t have fun photos in olive tree but I was busy playing on the beach with London and her mom. If you haven’t met London, she is Golden Retriever and she loves water! Tomorrow I have promised to Nero to play with him from early morning! No he likes to show you the other presents they got on his Birthday …


There were two boxes … empty? no no … something was smelling interesting …

… they were a little bit lazy and didn’t brake the boxes to hundreds pieces as usually …


… after changing the boxes several times they both found pig’s ears! They had  good time with their presents.

Nero sends you big furry hugs and big kisses! Thank you so much for all the Happy Birthday wishes you sent to Nero! He loves his new ball and even more Hanna’s smaller ball!

Unfortunately London couldn’t join Nero’s party. Once we tried to introduce them to each others but Nero was so extra super exited that this sweet girl got scared … and with Hanna … both girls were worried about the meeting and they didn’t feel comfortable to become friends … too bad.


Thank you for your stopping by! Have a wonderful October!

I’m linking at all my favourite link parties! Buttons are on my sidelist so you can visit those blogs any time you like – not only in link party days – just click the icons and you get there. Once a week they host a link party and other days you find lots of exiting posts about sewing and quilting, tutorials and some times even give aways!

PS.  Dear friend, Janice from ‘Better off Thread’ is looking for a blogger to continue the link party ‘Sew Cute Tuesday’. I would love to have a link party in my blog but I never know how my days are and can’t be sure to have time for that. If you are interested, visit Janice for information.
