Thank goodness, there is more than just Christmas

This Saturday we celebrated Sinterklaas among the four of us, a week late. This is what Laura made and bought me. The heart made of felt has a tag attached: met liefde (with love). Isn't this a very sweet gift (O: The little angel is holding stars to lighten up each day. Laura really knows what I love! It's wonderful to have a daughter like her ((O:



Then while I was blogging, I found this Charms for Charity Contest. Go have a look there. Deadline is December 31.




Here is my completely finished Christmas pattern by Gail Pan. It's a quick project and very much fun to do (as I might have said already earlier)!



A while ago I joined the Teeny Tiny Squares Quilt Swap and yesterday I received the name of my secret swap partner. I'm really looking forward to make a quilt with squares between 1-1.5". It's something I've always wanted to do and a swap somehow gets me to do it. I think I might make two at the same time, so I'll have one for myself too.




And last but not least, I received my Gail Pan giveaway. Gentle dreams - Let summer whisper her gentle dreams. Doesn't this just make you go to another world with your thoughts and feelings. Once again, Gail, thank you so much (O:

Hope you all have a very nice and creative week!

Hallo Simone, thanks for visiting my blog. Yes I am Dutch too, but prefer writing in the English language, lol.
Maar kan het ook in het Nederlands hoor.
Leuk dat je mijn blog bezocht hebt. Jij hebt ook enige dingen zie ik, en vooral die Engel van je zoon is een schatje. En je Sneeuwmannen, joh grappig.

Groetjes van Marian
