Still smiling when remembering my days at the cabin with my friends…
How couldn’t I… Had such a lovely time …
Promised to show my gifts a little bit better … And here they are:
Krista had made a Double Scissor Keeper ( pattern by Amy Friend)
and in the book Make It Take it by Krista
And it was filled with some goodies…
Isn’t this a clever one… Double scissors!!
I so love the inside fabric…Krista didn’t know this, but I love strawberries…
strawberries and summer days at my grandmother’s house, happy days without no troubles…
And to go picking them on free land …yum!
Happy fond memories!
And I also got wonderful gifts from Louise…
The loveliest bracelet from Snö of Sweden… Have used it a lot since cabin…love it…
and then I got this fantastic bright fuchsia Christmas bauble
for my white Christmas tree!!!
She bought it at Liberty’s when in London last year ( was it so Louise?)
and now we finally got to meet so she could give it to me…
Can’t wait to put up my tree and hang it there!!
My second gift from Krista have come to great use right away…
the Stepping Stones Table Runner (also from Krista’s book) …
It’s on my kitchen table so it says hello to me every day!
It’s brilliant designed with the pattern going in a curved design,
so there are gorgeously quilted spaces where you can put candles
on without breaking up the pattern on the runner…
And yay…more strawberries!!
Totally missed out on this fabric line Briar Rose by Heather Ross
but now I have some of it… :)
Thanks a million for my thoughtful gifts!!

And hooray to me…
I have sewn!!! 4 blocks…
Can you believe how happy one can be over that…
it's like a miracle…because I had fun!!
 
Four blocks on my scrappy trip around the world
It wasn't easy…because I had to start all over again…
trying to remember where I had left off …and how had I thought…
And of course…in all my happiness of sewing…what did I do?
Sew wrong of course…so the seam ripper was my best friend!!
 
Well…anyway I have sewn that's the most important thing…
and then first of advent came in between…
so a little interruption in my little sewing had to be done…
 
This year I'm going for a WHITE CHRISTMAS
Yepp.. I bought a white tree… And what can I say… I love it!
It's like light therapy
So I'm smiling every day I light the tree and all the day along!!
( Lars said the tree had a disease of some kind…
hope he will love it as I and Viktor do!) :)
 
All the decorations are done…very little this year…for me… 😉
Something new and I feel good about it!
 
Now when all the decorations are up
hopefully I will get into sewing spirits again…
It sure would feel nice… :)
 
Hmmm.. Maybe I will bake some lussebullar today…. Think so… :)
See you!!
