The sun rose at 1110 and set at 1318. The length of the day was 2 hours and 8 minutes. Cloudy and grey weather, more wet new snow (shoveling wet snow is hard work).
Today I had a very busy but productive day. I got lots done. Walked (pushed through the normal route in snowy pathway), cleaned (scrubbed really!), baked (just a few gingerbread cookies) and wrapped presents - and that is the reason I am running so late. So I am pleased even though the blog will suffer from this.
The mail brought to me a fabulous book (and lots of yarn, but of that I will talk about later on).
The book is of Finnish national costumes and it is absolutely beautiful, the text is in Finnish. I did not have much time to read it, but the feel is good, it is hardcover, printed in good quality paper and the pictures are good.The book is a joy to have and to hold.
If you would love to see more Finnish national costumes, there is plenty to see here. When you click on the letters, they will take you to different costumes from different areas in Finland.
This is my favorite of all. I dream of making this one day, my father's family roots are quite close to the area where this dress comes from. This is the dress from Rovaniemi.
I hope again that the links work and now I better click on the publish button as there is only 15 minutes left of this day here.
Wool till tomorrow!
