I made a (one) pear.

My pear can be used to stick needles in, or just as plain decoration.

I’m in love with my pear.

I also love the word windfalls that I just learned today. I looked up fallfrukt which means “fruit that fell from the tree”. Not as pretty in Swedish as it is in English. Windfalls!

    How cute that is! Excellent choice of fabrics. You may have also read that “windfall” also can mean “an unexpected gift,” as in seeing this post today. :-)

    Diane: No! Is it true? I just looked up the translation for the Swedish word. I had no idea. I was thinking it would be a great name for a blog, and now it’s even greater! thanks!

    Hi Hanna!
    I think your pear is perfect! I?d like to see a whole bowl filled with these – in different colors of green, yellow and other autumnal shades.
