The first Sunday in Advent
The last two days were quite busy, I wanted to get many things ready for the first Sunday in Advent. I baked, I cleaned, I sewed, and I quilted.
Yesterday the Hunter’s Stars wall hanging was done! :-)))
It’s now hanging at the entrance:
I quilted mostly in the ditch, then I also did some outline quilting. The borders were free machine quilted:
After these two days away from computer…
I started reading the mails, and to my surprise, Jackie wrote me I won her giveaway!!!
It’s a Hunter’s Stars ruler from Deb Tucker!
I ran upstairs with a huge smile, and asked my DH, “guess what, guess what?!!”
He was happy for me, too.
Thank you so much, Jackie!!!
I’ll start showing part of the decoration, a small stitchery:
Some of my last purchases. DH is a great moose fan, and I love polka dots, specially in red, and when both of them come together I can’t resist!
This is a cookie jar – that I first did not see (unbelievable!…), but my friend did and said “That look’s perfect, don’t you think?”, “of course, that’s just what I was looking for!”, ggg!
The first cookies and a lot of fun!
I found this cookie cutter, it’s the most lovely boot!
“Oh, Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree…”
This afternoon we’ll sit together by the fireplace, light the first advent candle, read a passage, and enjoy a warm cup of tea (DH needs coffee), and eat some cookies!
The weather is just right, the sky is clear, it’s cold, but it feels nice!
The work isn’t done! More lovely things to prepare, make, and send next week!
And, more cookies to bake! ;-)))
Wishing you a peaceful and blessed Advent Season!
