my attempt at adding a little snow to the roof - not really successfull
I really love those stripes - they come form a collection of blouse fabrics
A late night shot - I worked two evenings and a morning. I did a lot more quilting
than the pattern asked for, but I had chosen a rather thick batting and was having
trouble sticking anything inside the windows. (I would call them doors)
And here the complete thing is hanging on the wall, ususally I have a quilt hanging
there but I had to take that down to take a nice picture of the calendar hanging.
Well I just like "against the sun" pictures, but I didn't leave it in the sun for long, I was
far too afraid the lovely chocolate would melt - can you believe that there were only 23
in the package?!? Well I'm glad the elf comes along, and if I send the whole thing a day
late maybe noone will figure out.
Yes so why did I have to make an Advent Calendar - my Mother in all her wisdom explained to me that I was now too old for an advent calendar. Then she tried some petty excuses like she doesn't get one from granny either (pah as if she ever does anything like granny, apart from the cooking), not having the containers for the calendar (well I happen to know they are in a shoe box, right next to the tree decoration in the cellar). Well anyway this is my attempt to prove to her that you can never get too old to get an advent calendar. I'm sewing on for me on the side - I already got the filling, I won that in last years Sew Mama Sew Christmas giveaway marathon.
Well she has some wisdom and gave me a pencil with a nice quote on it:
Viele Kinder haben schwer erziehbare Eltern - Lots of chilren have parents that are diffuclt to educate.
+ Jean-Jacques Rousseau (a rather free translation)
