More butterflies and a finish

Finally I have something to put in my Early Bird Christmas Box. But I am afraid it will not stay there for long as there are several happenings coming now. So I better start on more.
But right now a pair of potholders (pattern from AnnAKa) is in the box. They was easy to make and I love the look of them so I guess I will make more of these and put in my box.

Then it was this weeks miniblock on Butterfly Garden.

It started with this little butterfly,
but it was so fast to stitch so........

I appliqued this heart,
still wanted to stitch more so..........

two more butterflies on another block :)

And while I was so into stitching in front of the tv watching CSI, NCSI (my favorite series) I just started on another block. So this actually means 4 miniblocks so far this week, and the week is still not over :)

I am also working on a present for the new princess in the family,

and here is a little sneak peak of what it is. Will show you later when it is finished and the little princess has received it.

Saying for today:

A new baby is like the beginning
of all things-wonder, hope,
a dream of possibilities.

Hei. Jeg har gått inn på hvert innlegg med mappen jeg har sydd. Jeg har merket en og en side. Høyreklikket på musa og skrevet ut dokumentet. Det tok litt tid da noen av innleggene hadde mange bilder. Er ikke så datakyndig, men dette fungerte på min PC. Lykke til.
