Last Christmas post 2012

P1070608The Christmas days are over for now, and today is New Year’s Eve.
Several of the Christmas days were taken by a bad head cold.
Luckily it is gone now, and we will have guests for a turkey dinner tonight :-)
I had planned for morning coffees, sewing and blogging, but you know, the best laid plans and all that…..

I thought I should show you my quilty crafty gifts this year.
A lovely book, the finishing kit for the snowman blocks I got in my Advent calendar,
2  patterns, a soft, warm scarf with a matching jacket for my Hitty doll,
a dragonfly button, 6 fat quarters from Lolly’s in Shipshewana (!!),
2 boxes of my favourite glass head pins
and the most gorgeous Dear Jane cross stitch embroidery.
I made one of those DJ embroideries for my friend Val 5 years back, but never got around to make one for myself.
DD1 made this one for me, and I have decided I will have it professionally framed.


From DD2, the box with Jelly Belly and movie theatre tickets! What a lovely gift :-)
We had so much fun seeing the new James Bond film before Christmas.
I am so looking forward to our cinema night!

To the left a wonderful perpetual calendar with saying for joy and encouragement from my lovely aunt :-)

The saying for today:

New year. New possibilities.
Move forward with your head held high.
It is a privilege to start over again.

Be prepared – I will share more sayings with you through the year :-)


A gift from me to me :-)
I have a favourite seller on EBay, who always has the very best Japanese books :-)


One last finish this year – Christmas lasts until Easter (Norwegian saying) or Dreaming about spring.
do what makes you happy

Thanks for walking with me through 2012 –
I have enjoyed walking with you!

I have a lot of photos I have not blogged, a lot of places I have been,
a lot of people leaving footprints in my heart, but I think there is always tomorrow,
and it is one good thing about having your head full of dreams and plans
you have not yet put to life –
you always have something to keep you busy and happy :-)


As we close the door on 2012, I want to wish you the very very best for 2013!

May your morning coffee always be warm
May your needles never break
May your dreams come through!

Happy 2013 to you!

new year

Hugs from Hanne
