Secret Santa present has arrived!

I was so excited to find a large envelope from Australia in our mailbox yesterday. I ran inside and ripped it open... Thank you so much Sarah- How sweet of you to wrap the gift in this amazing pointsetta fabric! I have put the gift away, and will bring it to the cabin and open it on Christmas eve- I can't wait. And then after Christmas I will make something with the fabric!

I've bought myself a "pre Christmas present as well, i read about this design wall on a blog a little while back, and now I can not remember which one (sorry), and since I have been wanting one for a loong time I figured it would be a nice present for me- from me :-) It's a bit wobbly, of course I had to get the BIG one (might as well, right...) but hopefully it will stretch a bit and stand nice and easy. I've just put up a few flimsies there for now- to remind me to not start anything new until these are done. The place mats are actually not mine, but someone elses secret X-mas project...

And like everyone else, I've laid my advent runner on the counter- this is from a Kristin Pollen book.

Have a great day everyone- and thank you for stopping by!


  1. That's a beautiful advent runner! I like the manger scene in your last post too!

  2. I've seen that portable design wall advertised in magazines and such - I've been curious about it. You'll have to share more about it as you use it more.

    Beautiful table runner!

  3. It is fun to see all the people starting to get their Secret Santa gifts :))

    The table runner is so pretty, I love the purple you used. You always chose such wonderful colours!!

  4. Oh, I love the colors of the table runner.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I really appreciate it!
