This year I actually got something made for some of my friends…
hooray to me…:0)
Well..have to confess I took an easy way out this year on two of them…
found two started projects that was intended for
Louise and Marica two years ago!!!!!
So with some willpower I dusted my machine off and finished them!!
…This one I made for Louise…
The pattern is from a Chestnut Junction stitchery…
Love them…very fun and easy…
And random piecing around the stitchery…
just as I like… adding one piece after another…
And every time when I’m finished… I want to keep it..lol..
And says to myself..
Stina.. You have to make one for yourself too…:0)
Maybe I will …
have a whole year until next Christmas…haven’t I???
…Love always…

This year Shirley and I have sent LOTS of emails back and forth
sharing good and bad days…
So I decided to try and make her something as a little gift this Christmas…
Guess she must have had the same thought…lol
My Christmas gift came in the mail after a long wait…:0)
Got caught somewhere in between!!!
Very well worth all the waiting…
Both Viktor and I got spoiled…
Viktor got some very cute Rudolph milk and white chocolate
And a fun notepad to write in 3D…
And I had to try of course..
Silly me…!
Now for spoiled me!
Lovely chocolate for me…
Think Pink!!
…Such a great idea…
Graffiti …:0)
And look at these ones…
Vintage milk chocolate buttons …
How clever isn’t that!!
And a Worn and washed fabric bundle!!!
Hip hip hooray…
Have tried to get my hands on some of these ones…
but out of luck all the time
And now I have one to play with!!!
And a little Guardian Angel to watch over me…
now isn’t this one a piece of art…
look at all the lovely pearls and beads…
I am so overwhelmed by all the gifts…
they made me so happy
Shirley…thanks from all of my heart!
Take care out there in the big big world…see you

The New Year at my place was a very calm and easygoing family night…

we did lit some Khom Loys and sent away some gremlins or if it was goblins

on a journey without a destination and as Viktor said…

hope no one gets them…

Don’t worry I said…once up in space they get out of air and vanish!!:0)

Felt good!!!

 

We ate good food and dessert

played games and looked at all the fireworks…

wow is all I can say…

having spent the last years at my parents place

I didn’t know how much fireworks there were to look

at right here in my little village…

Pretty!

Molly wasn’t bothered a bit with all the noise…happy for that!

Wished us all a very Happy New Year

and after that we were ready for bed!!:0)

 

Have been thinking of what kind of word that would be good

for me to follow this year and it is:

no other than just ME think it will be ok.

And with this I want to wish you all

a very C R E A T I V E and Happy New 2013!!!

 

Want to show some other gifts I got from my friend Åsa

…happy to have my lovely friends thinking of me

and giving me such lovely things!

Got this wonderful stack of tins…

promise they will be filled with something nice…

either it’s from the kitchen or from the sewing room…:0)

and isn’t this a most wonderful little pincushion!!!

Love it!

And to top everything she made me a framed stitchery

with a lovely saying!

Thankyou so much Åsa …
