Oh my goodness…I got more in the mail today… :)
Ok this one I knew was coming…
This is from one of my Pif participants …
…. ( look at the wonderful stamps…)
Fiorella in Italy….
she wanted to make something for Christmas for me… and I was so happy …cause I know she makes the most beutiful country paintings…And this lovely ( handmade) card and package came today…

…and ohhh…
…the cutest gingerbread men came with some Italian chocolate…
(these I will try out on Saturday… :)I just had to hang them in the tree right away…
..they are lovely…

Thanks Fiorella… :L

… And DH have been in the kitchen today and baked “Lussekatter” typical for Christmas in Sweden…
Don´t know if these are baked in other countries…
And these are delicious…
It´s a wheat bread dough with saffron and raisins…
…Mmmm…they were very nice… :)Otherwise I have been in my sewingroom…and not sewed a thing….had to find the sewingmachine first…
It had dissapeared behind Christmas boxes and other stuf I don´t know where to put…
and…almost done…pheewww… just a little finishing touches…and some more stars to hang in the windows…
And voila…think I will have a sewingroom I can sew in this weekend… if the spirit still is there…

Two days ago I had the saddest news…
My Aunt is very ill … and will probably not make it…
the cancer has finally taken the last grip on her…
and it is so hard to just sit and wait for the most awful thing to happen…

My thoughts goes to my cousins…
Hope you two can be strong and find serenity in all this…
Love you…

A couple of days ago I got mail from Jo in Tas that my PIF gift arrived at her home…

It is always a relief when you know that something you have sent has arrived…
..and this was no exception…

Had so much fun stitching and sewing on this quilt…wanted it to be a spring quilt…and sitting here in Sweden with autumnleaves tumbling down while I stitched that was a pleasure… knowing it would be spring where it was going to “live”…
And I love spring…!!! :)
And it was fun making all three quilts in different seasons…
Colleens Pif was a Autumnquilt and Lauras something in between…and finally I got Jo´s in the mail…

…it´s done from a stitchery pattern made by Kim Shellington… and I just love the saying!!!
…this PIF round was so fun to be a part of and I enjoyed it very much…
So for my “new” ladies that have joined my latest PIF… I hope I will have just as much fun making you something… but I promise you…it wont be anything this year… :)

And thanks Jo for sending me the pictures…I had such a hurry mailing it …so I forgot to take some pictures… :$
Nothing much is going to be sewn next week or have been sewn at my place these last days…have a lot of secrets going on… DH is turning 50…so it is a lot of preparations going on…but schh…
he dont want anyone to know that he has a BIG birthday coming up!!!! :)
