Thank you Alison!

I couldn't believe my eyes on Friday when I went to get the mail.  A big fat envelope from Cardygirl.... What in the world was this???? I was so surprised when I discovered she's my Secret Santa!!!  How cool, we already "know" each other since we read each other's blogs, and I am just thrilled she's my secret Santa.  Look at the beautiful Christmas cone she made me, it is really beautiful- Thank you so much Alison!  And like I told you, the other gift is safely hidden away until Christmas Eve.  Now I hope my parcel reaches its destination soon as well, and that everyone in the swap gets their presents before Christmas.

This is what I've been doing this weekend- stitching faces and flowers on twenty little Santas on a tablerunner.... Hope to finish it tomorrow, I didn't have enough ric rac for the borders....

And Kristine's mittens are all finished, yeeey!

Today is the first Sunday in Advent- only 3 more before Christmas is here....
Have a great week, and thank you for stopping by!
