No peeking...I promise... :)

Timed the mailman exactly today...checked mail when he came in his yellow car...
and guess what he said... -You sure have Little Christmas Eve today!!
And oh my he was right... :)

First I want to say I have been trying to have a deal with Kris at Tag Along Teddies that from now on... No peeking...not making any holes bigger than they were...and so on... and thats a promise...
So Kris.... are you up to it or did you faint!! Guess you already have peeked!! ;)

Ok back to my mail... :o

In November Kathie at Inspired by Antique Quilts had a giveaway with a little kit for a lovely plaid Scrappy Star quilt...and I missed out on that one ...but you know I loved this one..and have followed Kathies little kits at their new owners... and all the newborn quilts from her little kits...
and today this arrived... :)
(and this one was not wrapped...so it doesn´t count ;)
...a kit to make my own... :)
Do you think I´m happy !!!
This little beauty will be perfect for me to try out some sewing ...
I´m so grateful for this Kathie....
Thankyou Kathie.... :L

And this one actually came yesterday...
maybe he remembered that ...my mailman... :)
Exciting...something to make for christmas...a challenge... :)
a stitchery....
...and a little kit... and from who....
from my sweet friend in Norway...the one and only ... May Britt...

So now I need to finish up some presents...and start this one...
hhhmmmm...what to make...
And she added a little something too... and look...
down in the stocking from Libby...
Quick ...quick... :)
(before I change my mind...)
Thankyou May Britt!! :L
And this came today too.... from Laura in Italy...my Pif receiver this summer... a total surprise...but I was so strong...even if I can see some through the paper... :)
in the stocking it went...
Thankyou Laura... :L
Ahhhh... it feels so good... but ohh... Im not this strong...
Wait it is more....!!
This package came too...with a little note on top of the envelope!!
WAIT TILL CHRISTMAS!!
What.... me not wait... Linda what do you think of me...lol...
...and this package came a little bit torn in one side... ;)... Hmmmm....
handed this one quickly over to my daughter...and told her to check if it was wrapped inside...
and so it was...so I took it out...just to touch a little... ;) No...not at all...to put it in the stocking...
...but it was too big so I laid it in the tree...so I can check it out... no I mean so Linda (my daughter) can keep an eye of it... ;)
She promised to pour tabasco in my tea if I go near that package...
By golly...that was a horrible thing...so I guess the package is safe!!
She knows I love my tea!!
Thankyou Linda for thinking of me.... :L
Oh...there were a lot of Linda´s here...am I confusing you a bit..lol...

Have I been good or what... I mean no peeking...I am trying really hard here...so give me a break!! :)

  3. Hey Stina! No, no!! I'm being a VERY good girl!! No peeking since we made our deal ... yet! Tee! Hee! Hee! I'm TRYING to be good, but not very good and being good ... if you know what I mean and since you are so tempted to peek too, I know that you know! Hmmm ... that all sounds very confusing, but I'm sure you understand! I can't wait to see the stitchery picture that May Britt sent for you challenge, since she does such lovely work. Only five sleeps (for us Aussies!)left til The big man in red comes - or maybe I'll be like you and unwrap Christmas eve, so only four sleeps left! Tee! Hee! Hee! Be strong Stina - we can do it!!! Bear Hugs! KRIS

  9. I think I need to clarify myself.....being a sweet person has nothing to do with willpower, but with making so many friends all over the world.
