Normal 0 21 false false false FI X-NONE X-NONE Bright and beautiful day up here! Crisp and sunny, but truly, very cold! These winter pictures are from quite close by, but higher up than what we are. Our trees don’t look like this as we are further down. Look at those poor snow-covered trees, it is hard to picture that the trees are there under all that snow and ice. I have kept crocheting the second side of the cushion cover I showed you last time. I love this join as you go -method and the...

Tuhannen ajatuksen kyyneltäjä - The Artisan of the Tears of a Thousand Thoughts Päättyvä viikko on ollut jälleen niin täynnä huikeiden hetkien ja surkeiden tuntien vuoristorataa, että jälleen tästä jatkuvasta vatkauksesta ylös ja alas tulee taustalla vaanivaa elämän matkapahoinvointia. Jostain syystä eniten on kuitenkin kyrsinyt aivan yksinkertaisten asioiden muuttuminen (tai oikeammin: muuttaminen) äärimmäisen monimutkaisiksi ihan vain siksi, että kukaan ei tiedä tai...

Booking through Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Today, the topic is Romance freebie. I’m not really a fan of courtship romances.

Kirjan kannesta tulee tällainen. Minun oli tarkoitus tehdä aivan yksinkertainen lavaste kuvauksiin. Aivan ihanan tapetinpalasen sain, kun olin sopimassa opetuksista Vantaan aikuisopistolla viime kesänä. Teinkin kaksihuoneisen talon alun. Olohuoneeseen oli hyvä levitellä kirjaan tulevia käsitöitä.

Riihivilla, Dyeing with Natural Dyes -

Talon takana kasvaa paljon koivuja, joita kaadamme talvisin polttopuiksi. Niissä on myös paljon sormipaisukarvetta rungoilla. Jos on puuhommien aikaan on suojasää, jäkälät on helppo kerätä kaadetuilta rungoilta, mutta pakkasella se on hankalampaa. Niitä voi kerätä myös valmiiksi kuivaneilta pölleiltä keväällä, mutta aina kannattaa jättää osa yleisistäkin jäkälistä tuulen vietäväksi, eikä kerätä kaikkia. Pienemmät oksat haketamme katteeksi puutarhaan, ja niissä...

Aragorn led them to the right arm of the River. The Fellowship camps out at Parth Galen, a lawn on the shores of the River. In the night, the edges of Sting glow faintly, meaning orcs are somewhere nearby. On the next day, the Fellowship can no longer postpone their decision: they must choose where to go next. Boromir will head west to Gondor (although if you look at the map, it's southeast; presumably Aragorn, who says this, means the west bank of the river), but should the rest of the...

Oijoijoijoijoi, miten on nyt hienoa! Sain loppuviikosta kirjan raakataiton tarkisteltavakseni ja voi, että! Graafinen suunnittelija Susanna Raunio on tehnyt aivan mahtavaa työtä tekstin, ohjeitten ja Sanna Peurakosken ottamien kuvien kanssa. Ja täytää kyllä kiittää lämpimästi tässäkin myös Kustannusosakeyhtiö Moreenin Päivi Ylöstaloa, jonka ansiosta ohjeet ovat paljon selkeämmässä muodossa, mihin olisin itse yltänyt Kirjan tekeminen on ihan mahtavaa yhteistyötä.

Masha Gessenin ”The Future is History. How Totalitarianism Reclaimed Russia” (Historian tulevaisuus -kuinka totalitarismi otti Venäjän takaisin) sai USA:ssa palkinnon, National Book Award. Palkinto on hyvin arvostettu. Kirja on ylistetty taivaisiin. Luettuani vasta kolmanneksen olen jo varma, että palkitseminen ja ylistys on aiheellista. Luulisin että kirja tulee suomeksi. Se on ison kustantajan iso kirja. Varmana en osaa sitä pitää. Gessen on journalisti. Hän on tehnyt sen, mikä...

Hopefully, with these tips, you can modify your Instagram practices so that they comply with the new algorithm. By doing things the way Instagram wants you to do them you get more engagement...

Scener ur ett äktenskap Del 5: Analfabeterna . Liv Ullmann (Marianne) and Erland Josephson (Johan). Enligt Bergman var Ullmann och Josephssons insats "ovärderlig eftersom de aldrig lämnade ut Marianne och Johan, utan försvarade dem. På så sätt fick i många fall Livs och Erlands önskemål om replikernas och scenariets utformning avgörande betydelse för det slutliga resultatet. " According to Bergman the contribution of Ullmann and Josephson was "invaluable since they never abandoned...
