Finally here we are having good weather, sun and warm temperatures and yesterday was our very first day of summer!!!(ok...summer started officially few days ago but as we got rain and cold...it seemed more Autumn that Summer...)
We decided to stay at home and enjoy the weather in perfect relax...no hours drive for go to the sea...no hours drive for go to the mountain...no caos...just...relax!!!
So, my sister and her husband come here too and we spent the whole day in the garden!
Ok...boys...COOK FOR US!!!! They did a BBQ with meat and vegetables and fish...sooo yummy!!! Can you think a better start to our relaxing day???
We didn't have to think to go to the grocery store and fix launch...just have relax and this is ecaxtly what we did...!!!
We laughed soooo much!!!!
I prepare a fresh snack with Mojito and Chips...all my guests loved them!!! LOL!!!!
After the Mojito...we decided to play darts and...believe me...after a glass of Mojito...it's not easy...LOL!!!!
Someone was able to put 2 darts one inside the other...LOL!!!
In the evening...we had a wonderful pizza all togheter and it was the perfect end for a perfect day!!!!

Finally...I can show you my shawl!!!
It has been finished about 3 weeks ago but...here the weather is always so rainy so...it was so hard "combine" a sunny day plus hubby at home to make pics...LOL!!!
Anyway...yesterday afternoon...we got a bit of sun...so...this is me wearing my new shawl!!!
I have to say that I'm soooo happy about the result, this is my very first lacey shawl, it required lots and lots of FUN hours to crochet it but...I'm happy I spent my time in this way!
I made one similar past summer and I used it all the time.
I love this shape, the bamboo handles, it's so roomy and the fabric I chose is so nice.
It's similar to linen, with stamps in purple and lime green, so summery!!!
Hope you like my creations!
Have a nice day!!!

This week end is really a very very rainy one...
We are getting lots of rain, thunderstorm, wind and cold...
And...we are not getting into winter but...into summer...LOL!!!
So...I decided to bring myself a bit of happyness making...a new quilt!!!!
I'm a quilter and I love to play with colorful fabrics and threads...
I started drawing myself my quilt with the EQ7 program.
This is an awesome program for drawing quilts, table runners, wallhangings...really AWESOME!!!!
I would love to create something that could be hanged on my bedroom wall so I need something purlpe/violet/lilac...as the wall is painted with light purple paint and the curtain is white with purple circles...
Once I've selected the fabrics from my stash (this is the funniest but hardest part...LOL!!!) the fun begin!!!
I started to cut my fabrics following my pattern...
Then, with my (I love my Husqvarna SE) sewing machine, I started to sew together squares and strips...press them, sew them again in largest rows...
...and I can start to see how my quilt will be...
I've had so much fun today, also if outside all is grey and sad...my sewing room seems a lavender field!!!!
Now...it's late, time to go fix dinner...I hope to be able to work on my quilt again tomorrow morning...once you started...it's very hard to stop!!!!
Hope you are having a great Sunday too!!!
