December update...

..Time Flies..

Remember me???? :o)

 Hope you are more prepared for Christmas than I am... :o)
But I guess  it will be Christmas... with our without gifts...
will try to feel happy about that!!

I finally finished my task for school.. to make something with the dyed fabrics we made earlier this Autumn.. and to make something with the stack n slash technique...

I started out to make some Churn dash blocks..
just because I like that block.. 
just added white or off white fabrics... to calm down the minty green batik...

Hmmm.. what to do with these now then.. they sure needed something...
so I started to crochet some snowflakes...
and it lay there for two more weeks.. not knowing what to do...

so I spilled out a jar of white buttons on it.. 
and yepp.. there it was.. :o)

So I sewed.. quilted small snowflakes....
added the crocheted snowflakes... the buttons... 
but still there was something more to add..

TEXT!!!

I cut out templates with just paper and added paint with a sponge..
And there it was 
My tribute.. or NOT...
to the cold winterdays we have had!!
All I can say is...

BRRRRRRRR.... :o)

And it suits me right now..
Snowstorm is going on right here...
Having fever and cough again...
and more cold days to come!!
SIGH!!!

But I actually had some kind of fun putting that minty little wallhanging together..
despite the colours and the theme...:o)

Second of Advent have passed.. and I received the most treasured little gifts from
my Norweigan Elfs!!!!

Thankyou
  May Britt and Hanne!!!
Just LOVE everything....

And a while back a little note was in my mail that I had a little package to pick up at out mail service...
What what in the world could that be!! Had to wait a whole day to get it!! 

To my Surprise it was the most lovingly little gift 
from Carrie 
at

A cute homemade little box filled to the brim with delightful things!! 
A pattern... pink ribbon.... the cutest little reindeer ornament....
flower ribbon and ric rac... pink flower fabric..and the box  with the lovely yo yo  flower in the bottom...

what a wonderful gift to cheer me up ...
Thankyou ever so much Carrie!! 

Last weekend Viktor and I made a Ginger Bread House....
That was FUN!!! :o)
And still the Non Stops are all there... lol...
But Viktor said..
 -Ahhh... this is just too tempting!!!! :o)

In the middle of November we had a 
stack n slash weekend at my place....
Schoolwork... Patchwork this month..
and it have been the toughest month of them all...
So far!! 
Dont like my batik fabric... and not the colour...
it doesnt speak to me at all...and I have to use it!!!
SIGH!!
So it aint finished.. should have been..
So it need to be done .. tomorrow!!!

But it was fun to have Camilla around and learn her to play with fabrics!!!
All the other girls were sick or just couldn´t come!
Hope she have done something fun with her blocks!

The same week a surprise package was in my mailbox....
A Thankyou present from Judy at

And then more started to come in the mail
A brown little package from Lyn 
Saved it for Christmas...
Hurried to pack it away.. so I wouldnt open it up before.. 
so I forgot to take a photo!!!

Thanks Lyn!!! 

More happiness came... for the first of Advent....
from Norway two Elves had put together calenders for me...

 a calender to them this year...
Thankyou 
May Britt and Hanne for your generosity and 
all the positive chatting ...

Pheew.. that was  a lot from me...
Still here ..
Just tired and will probably not post so much during 
December... but I will be around!!

Signing off with some pictures from my daily walks to work early mornings...
I love to walk through the Old Church town with our Church...
just to feel the atmosphere...
feel the calmness and peace around the place...
Good for the soul!

Hugs to all...
