Today is Father's Day in Finland and I thought I'd post some photos from summer 1970, just a few weeks before we moved from Jugoslavia to Finland.

September came and went... almost. The kids were all at home until the middle of the month: We ate, we swam, we played and watched movies. Now the boys are in Florence and Rome at university, the eldest is preparing for her last exams and the little one is at school. It's still really dry around here, almost no rain at all and I can't wait for the temperatures to go down.

We are back in Italy after our first summer without my mother in Finland... it has not been easy and I did not feel like blogging about much at all... hoping to pick up now though.
Photo from the garden while watching the fireworks over the sea in honour of the Madonna del Rosario di Pompei, the patron Saint of Castro Marina.

My friend Mari had an idea on a variation of a stripey shawl and I liked the look of hers so I wanted one too.
I had some gorgeous BFL yarn from Handu so off I went and the shawl turned out simply gorgeous!
I'm leaving for Finland soon so I'll give it a bath there, and I can't wait to be able to use it.
Flowers from our entrance...
