2nd Advent Sunday

P1070106

We light two candles tonight,
two candles for hope and joy.
They stands there shining by themselves
and we who are  present.
Tonight we light two candles,
we light them for hope and joy

My Advent Sunday gifts are a lovely piece of fabric from May Britt and 2 beautiful ribbons from Bente.

Maybe it is the cold weather and the season, or maybe it is only the soft tactile feeling of wool - this bundle of Bareroots felted wool from Kathrines Quilte Stue is a pleasure both for the eyes and the fingertips. I am looking forward to work with this wool - a present from me to me :-)

How did my challenge to myself go - 4 finishes before Sunday evening ?
I did not make it all the way, but I have 3 finishes - the sampler quilt and 2 Christmas gifts I can not show you yet.
Here is the planned finish # 4 in the making - it will be made today - a drawstring pouch again.
I am happy with my finishes :-)
