Entering the new with the last of the old.

My crafting corner and I are entering the new year, by showing the final completed project of the old year here on the blog. 

May the new year bring goodness, kindness, happiness, time to craft, laugh and smile - to you and your family!

Happ New Year 2017!

SSCS 2016 - 10th anniversary parcel opened

I know I've probably said this every year, but it's the truth non the less. I feel so spoiled by my Secret Santa, just look at this adorable stitchery wallhanging that was wrapped up under the tree - for me!

Michelle, my Secret Santa, made these adorable stitcheries, and included some extra treats too. She's a very talented designer, and if I'm not completely wrong, I think some of her designs have been wrapped up and sent all over the world over the past 10 years of the SSCS. I highly recommend a visit to her blog to see her designs and work!

In the parcel was also a very cute birdhouse scissor fob, one of her own patterns (the snowmen are so cute!) and embroidery thread in the most gorgeous shades of red. It just screams "make something christmassy with me!".

I'll leave you with another photo of the ornament from Michelle - and my wishes to you for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The 4th Sunday of Advent

Some days sparkle all by themselves - and others need a little help.

Lucky, lucky me! I got a copy of the gorgeous redwork-book Simply redwork by Mandy Shaw. I can't wait to choose and start my first project!

Almost Christmas now.. only a couple more days to go.

The 3rd Sunday of Advent

A time to make - and a time to take a break..

Lucky me - two new skeins of thread (in new to me-colours) and a mini craft cutter!

Santa's sleigh has arrived!

And look at the adorable ornaments Michelle sent me!

An ornament with a kangaru - so adorable! And the tiny stocking too.

The main parcel is safely stored with the rest of the wrapped gifts, ready for Christmas. 

Only 13 more days... time flies!

This post is a little overdue - thanks to a nasty stomach bug.. the whole familt went under - first A, and when she was back on her feet, the rest of us dropped like flies during one short evening..
