This was a very, very cold week and it seems that tonight will be just the same. That means we won´t stay very long outside at 24.00 to fire and watch the fire works!

My parents spent some days at our place and my mother brought along her last works to show me.

I thought it would be the right thing to share these nice works with you to give you inspiration for next year.

The apple core quilt is hand-sewed, hand- appliquéd and hand-quilted. I love the colour combination.

The second quilt is machine-sewed and is being hand-quilted. My mother was inspired by a pattern at Quiltville.
I wish you a very happy new year and a lot of finished works (wether they are sewed, quilted or knitted)

I wish you all a peaceful and very happy Christmas.

How is it that Christmas is already in 10 days and I haven´t seen anything of December yet?! What with bad weather, ill family members (DS and DH both sick with fever and heavy coughing), getting and/or making presents,...

Anyway, yesterday I took some time off to get some quality time going with a good friend of mine to the opening of a new yarn and quilt shop.

Christiane has made it! She now has a very nice shop with gorgeous yarn and fabric.

Of course I did some retail therapy but could not take any picture yet.

This week I knitted some presents for my dear sis: some mitts (modified version of Evangeline) and knee socks (my own pattern).

I just hope that they arrive on time in England. It is supposed to be so cold there (especially inside the house, isn´t it Sis? ) (Private joke!).

Now my DH has discovered a tam he would like to have for Christmas too so you know what I will be knitting next week!

I wish you all a nice third Advent.
