I just had to post this picture of my little cherub Sofia. Funniest thing - I was looking at her smile and realised that by this time next year she will probably not have those teeth any more. And she will not be gloriously 4 years any more but a really big girl at 5… Continue reading Something to remember
I came across this picture today and I have to say that even though I disliked her colour choices, that hat was really pretty!I think I'll have to sneak a denim one in the sewing list before fall. The white one I made her is a bit sensitive to dirt.
Sofia appears to be our more imaginative child. She also gets herself into more trouble than Isabel ever did.- she likes to draw on herself with pens, preferably felt tip- she cuts her own hair (and refuses to acknowledge me when I ask her about it)- she will hide clothes she doesn't like to wear… Continue reading Sofia at 4
We've had a few weeks with unstable weather but on Wednesday this past week we got lucky.I had planned to meet my Mom for lunch - and maybe even my Aunt who works in town - and then take the girls to Folkets Park (The People's Park - a park with a few big playgrounds,… Continue reading Fun fair
After five weeks off Rickard went back to work yesterday. The girls and I are home together two more weeks before my vacation time is up.We decided to do some crafts so in the morning we went to town to get some white tees. Not an easy task I tell you.

So, my little one had a birthday a few weeks ago and on Saturday we're having a party for her little friends.I try not to go over board on the planning, but I do admit to having a bit of an Amy Atlas-moment now and then.Last year I went a bit over board and we… Continue reading Party plans
Both Isabel and Sofia got very invested in me painting the board I started using as a background.They kept asking me when I would do the painting and wanted to be a part of it.I wasn't very keen on letting them loose on my board so I told them they could paint once I was… Continue reading Do Not Disturb the Creative Process
I made Sofia a new skirt a few days ago.One night a few weeks ago she woke up early in the evening before I had gone to bed and she was a bit agitated. So to calm her and cool her down (her room faces south and gets really warm in summer) I took her… Continue reading A Skip in the Hopscotch.
We celebrated Midsummer's Eve in Sweden on Friday, and even though it's the start of summer it does get a bit chilly in the evenings and I wanted to make a sweater for the girls to wear. I've been eyeing the Nature Walk Pullovers for a while (I love the pants that come with that… Continue reading Nature Walk for Midsummer
Last night after the girls were in bed I sat down to make Sofia a new dress.I had the Ice Cream Dress in size 6 cut out and it was all ready to go.I had hoped to get the yoke done before Sofia fell asleep, but no such luck.In all it took a little over… Continue reading Ready for an Ice Cream Social
