I got so frustrated the other night when I was trying to post an update and my post blew away somehow. You´ve got to love Blogger when that happens. Anyway, here I am again hoping it will be better this time.
I´ve got to be the worst blogger ever but December just passed away so quickly.
I wanted to update you all on the advent calendar exchange. This is the biggest exchange I´ve ever taken part in but also the most interesting and fun of them all. I loved it and would do it again.
Day 3 – I received stickers with beautiful blue skies
Day 4 – A yellow highlight marker
Day 5 – A skein of black DMC
Day 6 – Number for DMC threads
Day 7 – A piece of Snickers (yummy bite with my coffee)
Day 8 – An ornament for my tree, made of glass like a tassel and it glistens when the light hits it
Day 9 – A pen – much needed as I always loose mine around the house
Day 10 – A needle threader
Day 11 – A pink highlight marker
Days 12 – 16 DMC threads in different colours – love those
Day 17 – Another skein of DMC floss
Day 18 – A small notebook
Day 19 – A stamped ornament for my Christmas Tree
Day 20 – A skein of DMC floss
Day 21 – A bookmark fabric to stitch on
Day 22 and 23 – More DMC
Day 24 – A piece of Snickers (again a yummy treat with my morning coffee)
Day 25 brought me the biggest gift which was a pattern from Heaven and Earth. I love it, it is called Fire in the Soul Storykeep and is a design by Michele Sayetta. This one goes straight to my ever growing to do pile. I´ll have to get my stitching moving in order to get to finish everything I´d like to do.
Thanks a lot for all the wonderful gifts Donni that you´ve sent me for the advent calendar exchange. I feel really spoilt and it was fun to receive gifts every morning for almost a month.
