Twas The Night My day


Time flies only little more than five weeks until the Season is here to stay for some days. It is indeed a hectic period until Santa  as it is in Sweden will come on Christmas Eve  with his sack full of gifts  and knock at the door  asking  if there are any good and kind children at home. The children could of course also be grown ups as you know. 

Before introducing you to kind and small gifts for Christmas I will thank two lovely ladies Marlene and Madame Samm for organizing this blog hop.

Some weeks ago I received a parcel from Judith in  Switzerland  who is blogging on How Art You

The parcel was laying there on the table until some hours ago, I have decided to wait until today to open it.

Don´t you think it is a fun Christmas card? 

Open it up !!!  


A fun small Christmas cloth with tumblers. I love it.



A lovely needle case. 




A wonderful tin case with butterflies. 

Thank you Judith for all the wonderful gifts. They will surely be used by me.

I have sent a purse to Lyndsey in UK with Swedish Dalecarlian horses and here are some purses in different fabrics and with different decorations on the pockets.





What about some lovely fabric bracelets? They are so fun and you will only  need small and tiny scraps to make them. I have made several types and embellished them with buttons and needs.

Here are some examples





It is always fun to make mug rugs and coasters and here are some coasters that you could make many in less than two hours.



And why not sew a small PP Santa?

Well that´s all for me and I hope that you have been inspired of what you have seen.

Now hop over to my fellow ladies for the day



Have a great day hopping
Greetings from Sweden
Britt-Inger
