A bit of everything

This week the postman came and brought me this wonderful present from Sarah. Sarah was afraid I wouldn't like them, because she had read that I didn't like blue. But this combination is just gorgeous! Sarah made me really happy with her baubles (O: Thank you so much Sarah!

Let it snow I made this sweet little snowman for a blogger whom I thought needed something especially made for her, since she makes so much for others. I later read, she didn't like snow, since they get so much snow where she lives. But I guess this is different.

Gail Pan Design for ChristmasGail Pan makes wonderful designs. She has made a Christmas stitchery wall hanging for us all to make. She says it is a truly quick project to make, so maybe one more nice project for Christmas. Thank you Gail!

And then here I have two sneak peaks for my Christmas swap partner Marie-Joze. The swap was organized by dear Janet. She now has 12 tips for Christmas. Go over there and read the first two. They are so much fun ^^)

I hope you all have a very nice weekend. We will be celebrating Sinterklaas, a wonderful Dutch feast for young and old. And after that, when Sinterklaas has left the Netherlands to go back to Spain, we will start with the Christmas decorations.

I love your little snowman quilt, and I'm sure your friend will love it. I'm about to print off the Gail Pan embroidery too, to make a little wall hanging.

Your snowman has got me thinking of how much I would love to experience a white Christmas. It must be so nice to snuggle up inside and enjoy the lovely warm foods and the crackle of a fire. We are heading into summer and the days are quite hot.

Als het is om een bezoekje te brengen, dan ben ik er als de kippen bij. Bedankt voor je blogbezoekje. Je hebt al heel wat mooie dingen gemaakt. Ik had de stitchery van Gail Pan al. Ik ga regelmatig de Australische toer op. Tot een volgende keer!

Hello, I'm new to your blog. I strolled over from spoonful of sugar.
I've always had a great appreciation for those who can do any kind of needle work. I especially like the details in your snowman, it adds such character.
Did you ever find cupcake liners? Here's an exceptional site that has wonderful cupcake supply's.
They were featured on Martha Stewart.

Sweet Wishes,
