Advent secrets....

Hello everyone...
I´m back...and NOT so Grumpy...:O)))

Christmas is coming closer and closer and here in Sweden we are 
decorating for the first Advent...
Havent started YET...
only little...;o)
 making some decorations for the door... a christmas wreath...
and some decoration for a small tree...
After work tomorrow... 
all the boxes will be drawn out for 
A MERRY MERRY DECORATION DAY...:O)
I hope..:O)

This year I had BIG BIG intensions (as always) 
of keeping the tradition of advents gifts for my friends...
but gosh how lousy shops there are around here!!!!
UGH!!!

So I did something else...
did draw something instead...

packed in little bags and sent off!!!

ANd please please let me have time to make this a little more fun 
and let my friends have a little christmas mystery!!!

Really hope so..:O))

Who knows.. if Im sweet and nice..
I might be posting it all on the blog for all..
but I need time!! :O)

Still no snow around here.. we had some but it rained away...
just some frost...

Molly loves the cooler weather...
and well not me...
guess she will have to make me love winter... :O)

Over and out from me and Molly..

(hey do you see ..my new down jacket...it´s pink..lol..:)

While I´m at it...

saying what´s on my mind and what drives me crazy...:O)

Word verification...!! 
Have had mine turned off for ages and I have never ever had any trouble...
Please dont be afraid to turn it off...
just follow this link.. and read Jodis  little tutorial....

EDIT!!!
Not completely turned off
just on posts older than 15 days!!

She also have a a button on the side to check out 
if you are a NO REPLY blogger as well..
check it out if you are unsure of what your settings are!!

And She has a wonderful blog as well...
so check it out..:O)

Oh my I am Grumpy today!!!!
Too little sleep maybe...

well well.. Molly is better now..
 still not eaten anything but a little yoghurt..
but is happier..:O)

Cant end this post without pictures..
so here comes some pictures I posted last week on Instagram...

Some knitting...
really had to test and see if I could make one...




a Poinsettia..
And I did..:O))

Bye from grumpy old me!!! ;o)




Things on my mind...

...Can anyone explain to me...
WHY do one have settings on the blog just to show the first rows????
Annoying!!!

Have been catching up and believe me or not...
 I have DELETED blogs on my reader...
there is no way I can keep up with whats happening...
 so this is what I had to do..
Delete...
and it breaks my heart that I must inform..
I have deleted all blogs with just the first lines showing!!
because... it really takes to much time!!
Pheew..
But it wasnt an easy decision..
so bye bye...

I know.. some of you dont even know it...
so please check your settings!

Pheew.. now I got that out of my chest!! 

What have happened around here..
NOT MUCH!!!

Have sorted out and stored some of my retro fabrics in boxes...
with a lot of help from my big helper..
Miss Molly!!
I put them in and she took them out!! :O)

Have some plans for these fabrics...
but they have to wait!


Yesterday...
Me and Molly was out on a early morning walk.. 
and I just realized I might have to keep her leashed until it all freezes..
It was sooo tempting to run out and scare some birds!! :o)
Today.. 
I rest and take care of a sick Molly!!
 Hope to be sewing again soon..
Christmas is coming closer.. day by day!! :o)
