Thank you so much, Linda, I love it all!

For Linda I made a table runner

Friday night

Friday night I joined Wendy for the last FNSI of the year. Thank you Wendy for having us all!
I didn't spend a lot of time in front of my sewing machine and it is all secret sewing, so can't show anything here.
But I'm knitting an Advent Mystery sock that I can show
I don't think I will finish them before Christmas but that doesn't matter, they do look nice so far.

I promised to show you what was in the parcel from Susan and here it is

2 balls of the softest wool and just my colour too, and the ornament is the most beautiful little bird with a tiny bell. I love it, Thank you Susan!
 Can't wait to open the main gift on Christmas¨Day!

These are the gifts I sent to Fiona in the SSCS swap arranged by Chookyblue
This is the ornament to hang in the Christmas tree.

Just in time

Hooray, I've got my parcel for the SSCS!
Enclosed was a gift that says I can open on the 15th, and as you may know that's tomorrow. Exciting!
And I got the most beautiful little bird for the ornament, of course I forgot to take a photo of it , so will do tomorrow and also show what was inside the other gift.

 Thank you Susan, I hope I will find out who you are on Christmas day!

Lucky you, you also get to see a photo of my sweet grandson! :)

The last FNwF for this year

As you know I joined Cheryll for the FNwF and as I'm in a knitting mood at the moment all I did was just that. Thank you Cheryll for a fun night!
These are the things I'm working on right now

 Vanten Lysa/Shine mittens and two Advent Mystery knits, Julevotten 2016 the pattern is in Norwegian and Kammebornia Advent mystery, a sock with the same designer as the Shine mittens.

Here is a pic from around 4 o'clock in the afternoon the other day

I am here

I have joined both Cheryll for the FNwF and Wendy for the FNSI, and have sewn a lot but it has all been secrets for the swaps I'm in so still can't show anything.
But I've made a quilt for Ossian that I'm very pleased with and he likes to look at everything on it.

I almost forgot about the cosmetic bag I made for my niece
and the raggsocks I knitted for my DS2

On Sunday we celebrated the 1st of advent
And this coming Friday it is FNwF and I'm joining Cheryll again.
 I will end with yet another pic from a couple of days ago.
