Christmas shopping

I believe in shopping locally when I can, and when I have such a nice shop as Trådsnella just minutes from where I live, it makes it easy Smilefjes med åpen munn

Marianne’s mother is a wiz with the knitting needles, and even if I do not knit (anymore) I do admire her work. The lovely mice decorates the shop for Christmas.
Marianne does carry the patterns, in case you wonder.

Myself, I am more for stitchery and English Paper Piecing right now, and Marianne carry both, including my favourite designers Helen Stubbings of Hugs’n Kisses and Sue Daley.

Remember the beautiful fabrics I got from my husband when I was in hospital?
This is what I am making from them.

I think I have to put a few more finishes on my to do list before Christmas. I think I can do it!
