Sunday evening update

P1070218

We light four candles tonight
and let them all burn down.
For longing, joy, hope and peace
but most of all for peace on this little earth
where people live.

4th Advent Sunday - the last Sunday before Christmas - the last gifts on the calendars.

gifts

A lovely money pouch and a scratch card from Bente - I have not scratched my card yet, so I do not know if I am a millionaire or not - probably not, but it is exciting nevertheless :-)

A beautiful tin from May Britt. Maybe a place to store my special buttons or my pins ?

Thank you both of you, for brightening the Advent Sundays!

In spite of being under the weather I have got a few gifts done, as hoped and planned! I have also done some tasks around the house.

pouch 1

A gift for a special person :-)pouch 2

A gift for another special person.
It will start a long journey one of these days, as a RAK (Random Act of Kindness) or mailbox joy if you want.
A gift not expected, a gift with no obligations, a gift just because :-)
It will not make its destination before Christmas and that is on purpose from me.

It has been fun to make these drawstring pouches and I have been thinking about making a tutorial. What do you think?

Hanne - I hope you do a tutorial for the drawstring bags. They are perfect for the scented tarts I give to friends every Christmas. If you do it soon, I can get a huge jump-start on next Christmas! Merry Christmas to you and your family and thank you for another year of beautiful projects!

A little bag tutorial would be fun to see in the new year - Happy Holidays & good health to you in the new year.

Beautiful draw string bags. Of course you have to make a tutorial of this :) I will start stitching a little motif so that it is ready when the tutorial comes :)
