Oh my, I do need to go down town again for some more Christmas gifts....
I thought I could order and get them nicely at home, but it seems like I have to go through the crowded streets and shops once more!...I don't like it when it is so full, I get a bit mixed up and then I usually forget what I was really looking for. Let's see if I get it done in one afternoon!
Gudrun asked me to show my pincushion collection. I first thought of a slide show, but that would take some time so today I will show just a few of them:
This one is from a danish book. To me it is a star, but many people say it looks like a flower. Perhaps a "star flower"?!
A appliqued one, from McCall's quilting I guess.
My first beehive ( after four frustrated attempts! They looked like pumpkins or weird tomatoes or whatever, but not like what I wanted!).
And a little bee, I saw this pattern by Homespun and made it on the same day I bought the magazine:
My friend Melanie is always so kind, she thought of me once more and gave me wonderful awards. When I tell other friends (that don't have a blog) how nice it is in blogland, they wonder if I am not exagerating!...But it so true and I wish they would give it a try!
These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these kind writers. When you pass the award along please include these guidelines. You are to choose eight friends to share this with.
Here are the rules for Christmas award.
You must be a true Christmas lover to receive this award.
The person to whom you give the award must also be in love with Christmas.
You must link back to the person who gave you the award.
You must list 5 things that you love about Christmas.
If you can't limit it to 5 things, then keep going till you run out of space!
Pass the award along to as many people as you like.
That can be 1 or 45; it's up to you. But, you must pass it on to at least one person in order to keep the Christmas cheer going!
Let your recipients know that you have tagged them by leaving them a comment.
