Gratitude sunday

G r a t i t u d e  *  S u n d a y

{Sunday's heartfelt tradition. A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful. A list of gratitudes.} 

Throughout the week I've felt grateful for:

working together; my husband went to an action and bought a lot of stuff to use at our renovation project and for selling. And we all went back there to put some of the stuff on the trailer.

Unloading the trailer at Blombacka; it took the whole day to unload and find places to store it!
How I love that place and how it fills me with joy and energy!

The delight in finding even more clothes at Blombacka. It makes me energized and eager to create. It's like Christmas Eve or birthday every time!
I'd like to make a pair of patchwork pants in these brown colors of different cords combined with some other brown fabrics that I've already got in my fabric cabinet. They could also turn out to a bag or a quilt, but most likely they will end up as pants for myself.
I found some shirts and sweaters in a dark blue tone as well which is another color I like to wear.
These and other findings also feeds our plans on a flea-market in the future

Much awaited  linden leafs at our trees at last (to put in our morning smoothie)
