Winter Wonder Land



Yesterday it started to snow and look at the loveliness outside our garden. It's about 5 cm deep (2 inches) deep. Bibi loves snow. She runs around as though she is a pup (she's almost 10!)

Gisteren begon het te sneeuwn en kijk eens naar de pracht in onze tuin. Het heeft ca. 5 cm gesneewd. Bibi vindt de sneeuw geweldig. Dan wordt ze weer een pup, ook al is ze bijna 10.




Look at the giveaway I won at Sue's The House that Love Built. She had an extra copy of the book. It is beautiful with great projects in it. My goal is to make at least one quilt from it in 2011 (o:

Kijk eens naar de giveaway die ik bij Sue van The House that Love Built gewonnen heb. Ze had een extra exemplaar. Het is een heel mooi boek met de mooiste projecten. Het is mijn doel om minstens een quilt eruit te maken in 2011. Je moet toch ergens beginnen (o:



I was one of the first ones the receive the SSCS parcel. Julie from Jewells is my secret swap partner. We were allowed to open the package with the ornaments. This is what Julie made for me. She also added a pretty towel from Australia. Thank you, Julie!

Ik was een van de eerste die haar SSCS pakje in ontvangst mocht nemen. Julie van Jewells is mijn secret partner. We mochten het eerste pakje open maken met ornaments. Dit is wat Julie voor mij heeft gemaakt. Ze heeft er ook nog een mooie handdoek van Australië bij gedaan. Bedankt Julie!



This is what I have been working on over the past days. Lots of projects and lots of fun to make!

Dit heb ik de afgelopen dagen gemaakt. Veel projecten en heel leuk te doen!



Stockings to keep my feet warm ;o) (with ricrac Carrie sent me ;o)

Kerstsokken om mijn voeten warm te houden ;o) (met ricrac die Carrie mij toegezonden heeft :o)



Laura was home this weekend. Last year I made her an Advent's calendar, so on Sunday when she went back home, I gave her a bag full of surprises to put in her calendar! Some are handmade, some I have bought and some are to eat.

Laura was dit weekeinde gezellig thuis. Vorig jaar heb ik een Advents kalender voor haar gemaakt. Dus toen ze zondag naar huis ging, heb ik haar een zak vol verrassingen meegegeven voor haar kalender. Sommige zijn zelf gemaakt, andere gekocht en natuurlijk is er ook van alles om te snoepen bij!

Snow looks so lovely when it first falls doesn't it; but it starts to lose its attraction after a while. What a lovely idea to give your daughter a pile of advent gifts.

Terry zei

Love the snow you got! Ours will be here soon! That book you won looks great too! And lucky you getting your SSCS package already! I'm waiting (im)patiently for mine! :0)

Cybele's patch zei

Alles ziet er toch zo mooi en sereen uit. Ik geniet hier echt van, maar morgen moet ik de deur uit brrr.....
Wat heb je een prachtige give away gewonnen. Alvast genoeg inspiratie voor het nieuwe jaar. Super idee om Laura een zak vol cadeautjes mee te geven voor de adventskalender. Zou ik nooit op gekomen zijn.

Sew Useful Designs zei

Druk, druk, druk. Je geeft deze uitdrukking wel een heel nieuwe betekenis. Wat een tempo heb jij in het maken van dingen. Laura komt vast vaker naar huis als ze dit soort dingen meekrijgt! Dat moet elke dag een leuke verassing zijn, om zo'n mooi ingepakt presentje te zien.
groetjes, Dorien

All that snow looks beautiful! Keep warm though :)

Your winter wonderland is beautiful. We still have our air conditioning running. We've had days where we could turn it off here and there but in true Florida Thanksgiving tradition it was running for our holiday.

Laura is really going to enjoy her daily treats from mom!

Sherri zei

It truly does look like a winter wonderland! Beautiful! And your packages are all wonderful as well!

Linda zei

you have been so busy Simone as always!! How do you do it? So much in your last post too. I wish you and your family a very merry christmas I am very jealous of all that snow!! LUCKY YOU xxx

Jutta...stoffundnadel... zei

Liebe Simone,
endlich komme ich dazu, deinen schönen Blog zu besuchen.
Der schöne Schnee ist sicherlich inzwischen getaut, wie schade für Bibi. Aber die tollen Adventspäckchen, aaaaah, das sieht so hübsch aus !!!!!!
Deine Weihnachtsprojekte gefallen mir sehr, obwohl man ja gar nichts richtig sehen kann ;o) .... perfekt fotografiert.
Ich freue mich, dass deine Secret Sister deinen Geschmack getroffen hat, ich habe mich in diesem Jahr zu keinem der weihnachtlichen Tauschprojekte angemeldet, eigentlich schade.
Ich wünsche dir und deiner Familie einen schönen Adventssonntag und hoffe, dass du in der nächsten Woche ein wenig Zeit findest, all die Dinge zu erledigen, die du gern geschafft haben willst.
Ganz liebe Grüße, deine Jutta

Melanie zei

What a lot of fun Christmassy things you've been making. I think Laura will have a lot of fun with her advent calender.

Congratulations on your giveaway win.

We have snow here too- so pretty.

Juliann zei

I have that Kim Diehl book and cannot wait to make the cover quilt or one from the inside - so many choices. I will watch to see what you make.
