Straw...old ones from my grandmother candlesticks as angels - only holds small christmastree candles - but are they not adorable?! Old pink elfs...ha,ha do not know if I find them pretty, but they certainly are awesome:)
Christmas eve at family...putting all of the presents under the tree:)
I am pretty happy with the gifts I made this year for for chrismas - can't wait to figure out what to make for people next christmas and to start making them:) Maybe a bit freaky, I like to have good time in December so that I can really enjoy Christmas instead of stressing around!
This, is our christmas tree... 4.4 meters or so..pretty high! We had to use a ladder to decorate half of the tree.. One year my dad and brother came home with a 7 meter high tree.. That was a bit too high! So after cutting of a couple of meters, we realised that tree was not so pretty in the branches at that hight - so they had to go and pick a new tree! That is Christmas at my parents:)
I have been laying low for some time.. mainly because I have been feeling pretty down.
But this sunday, my parents and I went on a Trip to Aarhus and "Den Gamle by" (The Old City) It is a museum with old houses from all over Denmark. There is a baker, a tailor and so forth, and because of Christmas there is much more activity there (People dressed in clothes typical of that period- playing residents of the city (1864 - 1927))
I still need to finish 2 Christmas presents.. I should have them done in 4 days...hopefully
My two newest projects! The top picture shows a scarf I am making from leftover yarn The buttom picture shows a "bacterius" scarf I have started on. The yarn was a advent present from my parents:) They are both really simple, so they are the sort of work you take with you in the bus and for meetings and such.
A pillowcover I have been working on for some time..
The front of the pillowcover is light purple fabric, with hand sewn flowers made from my stash of pearls ( pink redish).
The trim is dark blue twisted ribbon, and is sewn onto the edge by hand - first time I try it... and you can also see how I have chosen to fix the ends... I think it is okay, wish there was a better way, but I cannot figure it out right now.
The back is striped fabric - as you see.
The pillowcover is closed with pressstuds, and the blue buttons are just for decoration.
Home on weekend First picture, our dining table covered with our christmas decorations - a lot of red, and a lot of elfs:) Second picture, my favorite christmas canister! third picture, a garland I gave my mother for her birthday.
Done with the Advendt Calender! And I think my parents are excited :) wish it was a calender for me, but it is not.. and it would seem rather odd if I had indeed made one for myself! Though I cannot help but long for one, when I see all of the amacing ideas people some up with!
A part of my mom and dads christmas present this year, from my brother and I, is an Advent Kalender. So this is the fabric I have bought to wrap the gifts in - 24 pieces.
I am getting a new pair of lamps to hang above my bed. They are made out of brass, but they have this horrible white cord that just ruin the lamps! So instead, I have bought this moss green cord. Way expensive, but hey I have no money - so ehm no worries......
