I hope you all had a great holiday, if you celebrate christian/pagan holidays ( not sure when Hanuka is exactly... but I learned that Diwali, a Hindu holiday was already in October ).
We had a pretty stressless holiday, which was not expected:
We drove up north to my in-laws on dec. 23rd to have lunch and dinner with Heikos parents, his sister & siblings as well as Granny in law and Heikos uncle and aunt.
In the afternoon we went to see Heikos godchild :)
On christmas day we went to church ( Schleswiger Dom ), boy was it
The mics weren't working, we couldn't see anything and the youngsters to be confirmed gave a social-critical play.... not the thing to do at 3 p.m. with loads and loads of young children.
Santa was pretty busy at our house :)
I got a lot of stuff ( get a coffee and lay back...)
-radiant new york beauties obviously Santa didn't hear me say, that I will never ever quilt again
- The Novice by Trudy Canavan I'm just reading the first volume of this triology... great
- Stuff for the garden like a hose and a pair of scissors for roses ( now we just need the roses )
- beauty stuff like masks and toner ...
- wine lessons
- pride and predjuce in the 1995 version
- Loreena McKennit CDs
- A ringbook, that a friend of mine bound herself ( I guess )
- wild magic audio book by tamora pierce
- a haircurler
-bubble bath and lip balm from the body shop ( cranberry.... jummy)
See tons of stuff.
But I was also busy sewing and finished my xmas pj just 2 days after xmas...
My sewing tally isn't that bad, if you keep in mind, that I purchased 54 meter in december alone:
I purchased nearly 77 meter in 2006 and sewed up nearly 52 meter... not too bad :)
We installed the curtain rods in the living room tomorrow, so next thing beside my NY NY challenge outfit ( Charlotte, I need the fabric...) will be curtains... boooring but that will mean 12 meter for the PR stash reduction contest.... yeah...
