A stitching day

Back from Denmark. Yesterday I visited Bakken together with my mother and sister. Bakken is an amusement park near Copenhagen. It was our father´s 80th birthday and we celebrated his memory.
He loved trips to Denmark and Bakken.


Today I  have spent a lot of time together with my sewing machine. It´s quite a long time since last time.
I started the day with cutting clothes for "all my children".




Then I ironed them in place and started stitching around all edges using blanket stitches.
Now I just have to go on stitching, and I love to do it....
....but not tomorrow. Tomorrow is a special day, can´t believe it, it´s my 50th birthday.

Happy Birthday, Helena! Hope you have a wonderful day. 50 is just another number. Won't feel any different to you than 49 :-)
