Hello my Lovely Friends!!! Good Month!!! “Kalo Mina”!!!
Every first day of month, Greeks wish Good Month to each others! And now we have December – the magic month with Christmas – so there is even more wishings around!!! Finally it’s the 1st of December or do you feel ‘already’…I hope you have enough time for all the creations you have in your mind!
I have seen so many wonderful crafts and decorations when ‘travelling in The Blogworld’ these last days. I like to show you some of my Christmas things and also give many links to see lovely ideas!
This table cloth I have made for my sister (last Christmas, so I can show it). It was somehow the beginning for my patchworks.
That ‘Heart purse’ is to keep for example napkins or any other small things.
“Knicky Knacks’ has lots of Christmas creations! There is also ‘Handmade Christmas Challenge’, where you can join and add your link with your Christmas Challenge! Visit to see how you can join and also to find many lovely blogs! I have add also button on my sidelist if you like to find it later.
My old, rusty frying pan has now the Snowstar garland! Perhaps it’s not exactly what I had in my mind…but quite close. For the moment there is only small stones and one big white candle…but one day I shall ‘find’ what other decorations there will be!
Most of us loves to crochet and it’s so good way to make decorations! Lucy from ‘attic24′ has started new crochet things…marvellous and of course colourful - Christmas stars etc…. I’m waiting to go to visit her again because I opened her blog just when it was lunch time…and then I went for a walk with Hanna…
What it is that makes ric-rac so lovable?! I was so happy last week when I found ric-rac in few colours from my yarnshop! It’s a little bit desperate situation here to find any materials…. but now I know what to do if I don’t find ric-rac! We can crochet it by our selves!!! – I had never thought that! You can find easy tutorial from Foxs La ! I was visiting Jenni from Baa-me Kniits and saw again so much really wonderful crafts – she has always so beautiful fabrics! Jenni has made lovely dress with crochet ric-rac and also she has joined that ‘Handmade Christmas Challenge’.
So many fantastic Christmas socks every where…I feel mine is so simple…it’s from the last Christmas so perhaps it’s time to create a new one …
These last days I have been busy with olives and some other small works at home where I was needed as a ‘handyman’. Before olives, I was working with wool and felting and I’m still going to do some more felting. Here is one finnished felt-picture.
Do You know Mia from minspiration ? She makes so beautiful yarns, also she is knitting, crocheting and felting. Now she has collected some beautiful items for Christmas inspirations! Go to see!
Here it is still sunny and really warm weather – but of course this time of the year it can change any time! In many other countries I can hear that winter has came very early this year and it is already really Christmas weather! It is so beautiful but on the other hand so cold and sometimes difficult with lots of snow and very low temperatures.
My Finnish friend Katja, who is writing with Ronja, has took amazing photos about fantastic art that nature has created with snow and ice! It’s really worth of visiting – and meet also the most beautiful Leonberg ‘Ronja’!
An other patchwork table cloth with Christmas atmosphere!
