Back- with photos!

We figured out how to upload pictures to DD2's computer-LOL! The camera was pretty full, so here's a random selection of the summer...
As I said, there were three weddings this summer. But we were also invited to a baptismcelebration! Our eminent organplayer got married a couple of years ago, and earlier this spring they got a beautiful babydaughter. The gift from us was a babyblanket, lined with fleece. It is machineembroidery, and simple squares, ,and quilted along each square. Fun to make.
 We haven't had too many nice days, but this is the view about a month ago...

Here's Gann,the ship myDD1 is onboard. She likes it:-)

 Yesterday and Saturday was really beautiful here. We went to look for sheep on Saturday, and saw a few, but they ran off. Yesterday some of the hunters had seen them, and chased them up on the top from the valley they were in, so I hope they stay on the top_LOL! It's still early.
 We got the sheep back home from Selja last weekend, and I had forgotten my camera... This is how it looks close up...
Take care, and have a nice week:-)

Hi, there:-)

I'm having no access to the photos or anything, right now I'm on my daughter's laptop, which can't be used as a laptop anymore, because it needs to stand still in a certain position in order to work-LOL!

But we are fine, just a bit busy!

Summer has been long and wet and cold, we didn't get many straws of dry hay, but were able to make some roundbales, so I hope there is enough for winter.

I've been to three weddings- as a guest in two of them, and as a help in the third, and it was great fun, all three. Beautiful brides, nervous bridesgrooms, crying mothers, and fathers  with a big lump in their throats. Quite normal, I would say;-D

The kids and I spent a week in the south of Norway with my mom and sister, and came back in time for school. DD1 and I went down to Stavanger in the end of August and spent a few days with my sister there, before the daughter started school- the same as DS1- onboard skoleskipet Gann . I've spoken to her every day since she started, and she seems really happy about it! But it is awfully quiet at home...

Still knitting- socks mainly- and having fun sewing. I've got a lot of used jeans, and would love to make a couple of blankets out of it, perhaps  lined with fleece? I've made a top too, and cut some pants...

The sheep are still at Selja, but the weather forecast is pretty good, so I'll try to get them home tomorrow, I want them here during winter. Hunting season  also starts tomorrow, and DS1 got his hunter's license, so he'll probably go. We have a total of 4 deer on these four farms.

We're off to a footballgame- DD2 is playing, so we thought we'd be there cheering;-)

Have a nice weekend!
