Summer time....

To day
some of my friends from Elverum come for a visit..... So I had to keep my promise from a long time ago... I had to make cup cakes and fill the cake stand. Cup cakes are fun and easy to make, it is the decorate who take time .. and are the most fun.
We had a great day on the porch.. It was a sunny, warm day... At last I hope the summer time are her to stay. It is so great to be able to sit outside and stitch again after the long winter...
I have been doing a lot of cooking the last week... Some days ago it was summer end in my Quilt grup too.... For them I had to try Leannes Raspberry Crumble from Vignette issue 2.. and yes I made it with Cloudberries. I served it with ice cream.. It tasted soooo great, I know I will make it again. :-)


This evening was a cold one , so we had to sit in doors... it looks like we had to have a lot of liqueur to stay warm, but we didn't drink it all..... A lot of stitching and laughing this evening too...
I have got some new friends in my garden too after my birdhouse was repaired and home again.. a busy little brown fellow... the sweetest little squirrel, who dare to come and have some food even when we are sitting on the porch talking....
and a boy and a girl Bullfinch. For a day or two I belive they was looking for hireing the top floor.. As you can see on the photo the boy are trying to get the girl closer to have a better look at the flat :-) I belive she prefer a quiet nest out in the woods, and just come and get some food by me...
I have not only been cooking and chatting with my friends lately, I have manage to do some "real" work too.... I have manage to make me a new sewing folder... Done atlast, I bought the pattern in Gøteborg 2 years ago... Lot of work, but done now. One UFO less. ;-)

I'm still playing with Paper Piceses and hope to have more to show next time, untill then I hope the summer are here to stay..

Hugs :-)

What a lovely post it has everything friends, yummy food, cute squirrels, a love story( the birds), and some sewing. I DO love your bird house. I think of you often as I rummage in your bag to find my thimble or something else I have in it. I have been trying to paper piece each day and it is the bag I keep all my bits and pieces in so thank you once again.
