I came back from my training course on Friday night, but housework has kept me busy all weekend. Of course I had a flu all week so I was not allowed to enjoy the pool, but it was nice to have all meals cooked and served, and decided about, by professionals, and it was fun to meet the other "girls" I learned to know six months ago.
Sunday morning we had some new snow. We still have some of the old snow, but the new snow is all gone. If you click to enlarge this picture, you can see the hare leaping away on the snow about in the middle.
The snowdrops had grown a little:
At least some of the 500+ bulbs survived:
As you can see, the spring is not taking any giant leaps coming to Finland. No need to start any garden work yet, because the ground is either still frozen or far too wet. This is a perfect time to concentrate on fabrics and yarns! I have knitted one more chemo cap and worked on the ancient UFO embroidery.
On Saturday I took my paperwork to Villa Cooper. It was a sunny day so I decided to take some new pictures, the big trees in the garden make the villa usually so dark inside.
This is once again the big dining room:
Many of the members make and paint cups and pots of all kinds.
Felting, both wet and needle felting, are popular crafts.
They make jewelry with glass, beads, leather and other materials:
Hand made cards are popular, too.
Under the stairs is a closet for toys and other children's stuff.
The next new look for the villa will be created in about a month when the summer exhibition is built. I hope to make some pictures outdoors as well.
