So this weekend I was allowed to open package number one.
And this is what was in them. From Nancy some yummy yummy chocolate. I guess you see one is already missing when I took the photo (now the box is empty LOL), from Hanne I got a Tilda stitchery and DMC embroidery yarn, and from Nadine som cute cat buttons. I love this tradition with adventcalendar.
I took my santa stitchery with me to visit a friend today. And her dog who loves me so much, got a bit jealous on the stitchery. She wanted all my attention all the time.
I the post yesterday was to packages. One was Butterfly Gardn block number 7. I am so behind stitching these. Perhaps I get some more time when I have two weeks of christmasholidays. Really look forward to a lot of relaxing and sewing these two weeks.
The other package was from Paulette who was my secret swap friend in the Polkadot and Ric-rac swap. Look what she have made for me. A beautiful BIG drawstringbag in flannel. I love the fabric she has used and I imidiately thought of this was the perfect bag to keep my Leannes House quilt which I am handquilting on right now. She had also made me a kitchentowel with embroidery and polkadot border. She had also added a cute pincushion, three polkadot fabrics and a quilt sign. Thank you Paulette for being my swap partner. I got a little suspicious the other day when you commented on my blog where you told that you too was waiting for your swap package and that you had posted yours to your swapfriend LOL LOL That swap partner was me :)
And this is what i finished today. Working all weekend on it. Block number 2 of 9 in the Joy of Life BOM. So now Bjørg and I will have another sewing meeting this week to prep the next block.
