Spring is coming!

At least in some parts of the world. The southern hemisphere that is.
So over at QBSA there is a Spring Fling give away for members and followers!
You could win some Cameo by Amy Butler.

I wish the spring was coming here also. Right now, in the middle of the night, it's just 4 degrees outside. And it should still be summer!
At least I had a nice and warm week in Crete. It was 35 degrees during the days and almost 30 in the nights. I think the water was almost 30 degrees also. Simply wonderful!

Summer holiday!

When I first saw these cute coin purses over at Sue's blog I had to find the pattern (on Etsy) and make my own. I started with a dog but will certainly make some more, both cats and monkeys.

 I've been a part of the Name Game Swap 2 and got my mini quilt the other day. It's so lovely!

Jenny also enclosed some fabric, one with an indigenous pattern and one with frogs to remind me of my backyard friends. Thanks a lot, Jenny!

Now I'm off to Crete for a week to feel the sun and the warmth. This summer hasn't seen a lot of it yet.
