The fabric with the tiny flowers was the reason why I am going to make my first "swap". All of you, who has been blogging for a long time, have probably tried it before - but to me it is a whole new world.....
It is a nice girl from Uruguay who asked me to make a swap. She really liked the flower fabric. At first I had to think whether I wanted to or not. But having seen the fabulous stuff that some of you have swapped, I decided to give it a go!
Pale pink, pale blue and lime green are the colours we have to find for each other. The swap can be buttons, beads, trims, candy and that kind of stuff - and of course fabric. The question I didn't know was: how MUCH fabric do I send of to Urguay? Luckily this wonderful girl knew, because she has swapped a lot of times.
So.......now I am figuring out what to send. I think it could become very interesting to find the things for Natalia - I only hope it doesn't cost a fortune to send the package in the mail. (Well, who am i kidding? It is all the way to Uruguay....!!!!)
But never the less, I am looking forward to receiving a package from Uruguay. What is in it, I will tell you all about later on..
Too bad that the guys at the picture doesn't come in pale blue, pale pink or limegreen!!

My children are soon going to have a week at school where they turn the entire place into a christmas-village with shops that sell handmade christmas things . This made me think of the wonderful handmade angel at the picture. My nephew, Andreas, made it for me and it is one of my absolute favorite christmas ornaments. He had made one for my sister and I told him that I really liked it. Next time I saw him, he gave me this angel, which he made especially for me - my sensitive auntieheart brouhgt tears to my eyes (again!!)
I have had it for several years now, and every christmas I decide to make one myself. I haven't done so yet and I actually don't think that I can make one with the same beauty and expression as Andres did....

There she was in front of my house on a sunny day. Ready to attend a wedding in the dress I made for her. Not that she was getting married herself - she was already spoken for...
The green fabric she chose for the dress, almost match the colour of her eyes. So special and beatiful with green eyes, but I assume that very special persons need special eyes to be able to look at people the way she does! My dear friend...
I can always find her - just run across the street. She is there every time I need it; whether it is her sugar, pieces of advise or friendly hug!!
She embraces small people at school and big people all over with her wonderful personality.
She is not supposed to move(!) - nor leave on holiday for more than a week...All though I want the best to happen to her and her family!
I feel lucky to know her - and since it is the time of year where wishes come true, I want to make one of my own:
I wish for everyone to have a friend and neighbour as Lise Lotte....

Well, well, well - look what is here!! The new calendar 2008 from " Skals Haandarbejdsskole ."
Yesterday we went to the hospital to get my son vaccinated ( he has asthma and allergy) and in the hall there was an exihibition of embroidered hearts. They were made by different women who all somehow have a connection to "Skals Haandarbejdsskole." All the hearts were white and, as always when the school makes an exhibition, shown in a beautiful, simpel and very sophisticated way.
There are many lovely pictures in the calendar and patterns for a number of different things. My daughter wants to make the bandeau of buttons and I must make the knitted slippers.
So if you happen to be near "Viborg Sygehus" I think you should go see the exhibition - and buy the calendar.....

November it is.....The 11th month of 2007.
I fell like it is a different time of the year due to the warm weather.
On exactly this date a few years ago, I remember that we had a lot of snow. The chance for snow is there, but look what I found in our garden which absolutely proves otherwise:
I have started to cut and sew a couple of christmasdresses. One of them in red and paleblue fabrics.
But I am quite lazy when it comes to sewing today, so I guess I will continue tomorrow instead...
I did, however, wind up some beautiful yarn that I received in the mail.
