Today it is the third sunday in advent. Only 1 1/2 week to christmas. I still have a lot to do before I can relax and call it christmas.

I have opened my adventcalendar gifs today and I forgot to show you the one from 2nd sunday in advent.

This is my gifts from 2nd sunday in advent. A pincushion cat from Nadine. A lovely tin filled with pins from Hanne. And a lovely little pincushion flower on a peg that stands in my thread from Nancy.

And todays adventcalendar gifts was: From Nadine a washcloth with cats on. From Hanne a lovely scissor, I love this one and it is so good to cut with. And from Nancy a tag for my luggage and a cute thimble from the Golden Shears World Championship 2008.
Look how cute this one is. It is handpainted and I don't think there is that many of them, so this is special.

And this is what I have been sewing on today. My own design for christmas, but I can't show you anymore yet LOL

Saying for today:

May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas give you hope,
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.

How lovely to see those beautiful advent gifts. What a lovely idea.
When did you start preparing them?

I am not usually a great fan of lit candles in our hot summertime that Christmas often is in Australia but I love our Carols by Candlelight. But your lit candle there is lovely. Maybe I need to explore some more of those lovely glass containers for Christmas candles.
