Living in the north of Europe, we have our share of cold weather but are usually totally spared natural disasters. Until now (though, fortunately so far it's just a majour disturbance, no lives lost as far as I know).
A volcano in Iceland has erupted, as you all probably know, and the smoke makes it too dangerous to fly, so since yesterday ALL flights in about half of Europe are cancelled. And no-one can tell for how long.
It's actually kind of exciting, and I might be imagining things, but it somehow feels a bit more quiet, silent here. Although I'm in the middle of a big city.

This is the smoke that has put us all on hold. I'm glad I wasn't travelling anywhere this weekend!
Unfortunately for me, it seems like the parcel for my nieces didn't get to Norway in time, fingers crossed communications are back to normal soon!
I've actually made something for me now! A tank-top from Drape-Drape, no 12.
I shall photograph and post it tomorrow. It's rather revealing to say the least, I made it in a thin, white jersey. I think it might be the perfect beach-cover up (though not for the shy) but nothing for work...!
Edit: I forgot to include this video that Sew I Thought tipped me off about, it's wonderful, uplifting, pretty...!
Have a nice weekend all!
