Doily finished!

This august I wanted an easy craft to do for my sister in law. I started a potholder, but I didn't liked how it looked, so I tried different doilies. At the end I choosed this one, it 's oval and it fits her cofee table.

I used a thick yarn, because I didn't want that fussy changing glasses even in holidays. I could have used a thin yarn, because I worked on it mostly at home after dinner. May be next time

name tags

Yesterday arrived a gift: name tags. I've never had before and my husband thought it would have been nice. I was very happy and I tried right on, just iron the tag on the fabric and you can wash even in hot water.

almost autumn

We have spent two days in Ala di Stura with a couple of friends and their two girls.

There's a river, woods, nice friends to talk with, in other words it is a perfect place to rest and enjoy life.

We played many board games and although we went looking for berries we found lots of mushrooms instead,  but we didn't dare to eat them.

zoom day

On sunday we have been to Zoom, a park were to have a picnic, swim, and see many animals.

There was Silvestro, an old tiger that worked in a circus,

hungry african penguins (I didn't know that most of them do not live at south pole)

farm animals from all over the world, from pigs and donkey, to lama and dromedary and an african cow with an enormous pair of horns.

We even saw many raptors, such as an eagle, a condor, hawks and two owls.

If you live in Piedmont it's worth a visit: it has a picnic area and you can buy there some gluten free icecreams and chips, I'm not sure the restaurant offers gluten free meals.
Be careful, your kids will talk of the animals for many many days.
