Second Advent...

and I have had my Mum here for a visit...
guess what no xray ... just another examination at the hospital...
where they said that the muscle was damaged and probably
will need a surgery to be ok...

So a new appointment must be scheduled
hope brother can help out with the cows again...

The week flew to fast ...
as always... just work..and work...
On Monday I got two more packages in the mail...
One from May Britt...

Lovely lace and pink buttons....
Love them...:o)

And packages from Louise... :o)

Ohhh.. this is so fun...
Lovely scented candle and a beautiful matchbox....

Thankyou Girls!!!!

On the weekend  and on Monday I worked like a maniac.. and I really thought
I was going to make the deadline for the Schnibble  of November...
But NAH...
I didn´t... :o)

This time I worked with old Swedish repro fabrics...
probably from the 70´
I like them a lot..even if they are not the kind of fabrics and
colour scale I use to work with...
Some fabrics is from my Grandmother...
some from work and some I have bought...
Hope to finish this top now in December...

Today It was the second Advent..
and that means...
Package Opening!!!!!

Oh.. so pretty gifts I have received...
I love them all...
Buttons...fabrics... cute little box and a  pink heart clamp...
I think these friends know what I love...
Thank you All
  Hanne, May Britt, Marica and Louise!!!!

And guess what.. this was my 300 rd post..
and Im working on a little surprise for someone...
Dont know when it will be finished...
hopefully soon...
Have a good week all..
