My favorite part of her blog is the pictures she posted of little dolls she made for her children. She knits them on fine needles and either knits clothes for them or dresses them in scraps of fabric from old clothes. They are so precious.
She has lots of other pictures --- all of them charming. Pictures of the backyard play center they made for their children, of her crafting guild and their projects, of the bread she baked and the strawberries she raised. It is all very sweet.
I guess because we live in such a crazy world where there is so much tension all the time it comforts me to read about people whose lives are like those of me and my family. People who take pride in cooking a good meal, making a sweater to keep someone they love warm, sewing a colorful tablecloth for a special meal. I don't know the woman who writes this blog but I love it and I love her and her family. This is a picture of her house in winter.
Somewhere in Estonia on a cold winter night or a pretty summer day there is a young wife and mother making something lovely for the people she loves. Thinking about that makes me happy.
Thanks for reading.
