This was one of those weeks with lots of things going on…

First, I had to make enough time to push myself onto getting started with what I had left to do to finally get going with sewing pillows.

So, I did my regular, highly complicated warm-up consisting of several brain cell excersises, such as drinking coffee, and, well, another coffee, some psychological preparations ( = which in my world is yet another coffee) and stretching.

Looking for warmth

Snow, cold, darkness … Yes, the days are slightly longer but not long enough! Not here in Gothenburg.

The only reason why I like winter is because it has AN END. I really hope that it right now is finally at the end … Do not misunderstand me, I like WHITE color but not when it is mixed with COLD.
