All I made for Christmas....

I have been so slow in updating the blog. Sorry! I am leaving heat and South Africa behind and am trying to revel in the fact that we are having snow, snow and some snow. Did I mention we had more snow? I actually bought skiis.... haven't been cross country skiing for at least 20 years. Having my first trip tomorrow evening, under the full moon. We shall see if I remember how to use these planks.

Anyway - I can finally show you what I made as Christmas gifts this year, sorry - last year. Just gave away the last ones on Saturday. Yeah, yeah, we are late. Travels and such:)Made two of these for two good friends:) It is a Bareroots pattern. Love them. They make for very good small gifts.

A little hard to see all of these, but they are quotes from different Norwegian christmas songs or sayings. And no! it isn't crooked, it just looks like it when it is lying on the floor! From 12 Days of Christmas by Nancy Halvorsen - her variation of twelve lords a'leaping:) A pillow of hearts. Norwegian designer, MarianneZ. I like her Christmas patterns:) Table runner from the same designer. Both of these two went as a gift for a very good friend in America. Hope you liked them:)

This is the friend in America, who loves her Christmas gifts! I am keeping the pillow out all year, as it matches my red walls, and is so beautiful. It is Fergus' favorite to try and sneak a nap on. :-) Thank you!!!!
