Moomintroll - Tove Jansson

Moomintroll getting tea from the flooded moomin house. I always found this so sad, because the moomin house is so gorgeous.

“‘What is it?’ said Moomintroll. Discoveries were his very favourite thing (after mysterious paths, swimming and secrets, that is)

I could happily curl up asleep with all my sewing treasures but I think Little My has run off with Moomin mama's sewing basket!

MOOMIN KNITTING..,. look at all of Little My`s family!
