Hi everyone!

 

Our extra mobile had a sim card which was out of date.

We opened that card…

broken sim card by BLOGitse

That arrow shows where all the information is.

 

core of sim card by BLOGitse

The heart of information in our phones is packed in this small packet. Wow!

less than 2 mm (0.079 inch)

 

Are you a curious person?

I am.

I want to know about new inventions, products, life in future

(like robotics and artificial intelligence) etc.

 

😀

 

I’ve made more faces.

Here’s #8

body and parts

Thursday, February 1st, 2018

Hi everyone!

Remember I’ve been sewing – I got two pair of pants,

one dress and a scarf ready for summertime!

I have still a couple of fabrics waiting but

so many other projects are waiting that I need a sewing break…

 

We visited Kiasma (the Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki)

in December.

This is Pekka Kauhanen’s work –

‘Look Back and You’ll See in Front’ / ‘Katso taaksesi niin näet eteesi’

I didn’t know what the theme art challenge’s

theme for Feb would be but when I read this morning

‘found faces’

I thought this is perfect for that challenge too, right?

En tänä aamuna tiennyt teemakuun kollaasiin teemaa

kun olin jo ‘löytänyt’ nämä kasvot, sopinee haasteen teemaan?

 

And for

 

Paint Party Friday

 

 

 

 

Nature’s snow game is going on.

Last days nothing happened but now

it’s white all over again…

Some green needed…

patterns for spring or spring patterns

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

Hi everyone!

We had about one week when nothing came down from the sky.

It was so cool! No rain, no snow. We got even some sunshine!

Last couple of days we’ve had minus temperature and

light powder snow now brightens our terrace…very pretty.

 

I got inspiration to sew again.

First I had to cut and modify patterns, yak, I don’t like that at all.

Finally today I almost finished a tunic,

next one is so much quicker to make.

I haven’t had much time to paint nor to draw but a couple sketchers at least.

First picture of the series is here.

 

 

Huomaan että 100 kollaasiin kertyy vain sinisiä kuvia.

Sininen on yksi lempiväreistäni, mutta en ole mitenkään surullinen,

‘not feeling blue’ 🙂 tai sitten olen ‘aina’ surullinen…

my first Ikebana

Friday, October 13th, 2017

Hi everyone!

What a busy week I’ve had.

Mon-Tue in Stockholm, Sweden,

Wed met a friend here in Helsinki,

Thu hair cut,

today we’re having dinner guests…so my post is very short today.

 

Last Saturday I participated in ikebana for beginners course.

It was very interesting but to really know how to make beautiful ones

you need years to learn…but it was a fun and interesting day!

 

 

Here’s my first ever ikebana –

have you tried/studied ikebana?
