OPAM December

It's time to show the last finishes for 2010. I want to say thank you to Peg and Kris for hosting OPAM (One Project A Month) - it has definitely helped me to finish projects - and I'm very glad to hear that this will continue next year.
The table runner was my handmade SSCS-gift for Jenny in Australia. When I visited her blog, I saw she was very fond of flowers, so the choice was easy. Thank you to Donna for hosting the Santa Secret Christmas Swap (SSCS). I think this was the third time I participated.
My daughter's Log Cabin quilt is finished, and we both are satisfied with the result. It's quilted by Merete.The bag from this post is also a Dec. finish.
During Christmas I haven't done any sewing - just knitting.

I have been spoiled with many wonderful gifts recently. Fabrics and card from Elna and some cute mini socks from Hellen. The socks are on the Christmas tree.

Leah was my secret santa in the SSCS-swap. She had knitted a beautiful shawl, and the colour is perfect for me.

Some quilting stuff from other friends was under the tree too. Thank you very much all of you for great gifts! I look forward to use it.

I made progress on the secret project, but this is what I can show you after last night's sewing. Nothing done today, but I guess the bag will be finished tomorrow.

I have had a day off from work today, and I have spent some hours in the kitchen. Here you can see some of it. I also made biscuits.These ones (Lussekatter" we use to eat Dec.13th, but I know I haven't time to make them on that date. So we'll have them on Sunday instead.This month Bobbi and Heidi are hosting Friday Night Sew-In twice. Tonight is the first one, and I look so forward to sew a little. I want to make progress on a secret and also try to get a start on a bag. A colleague had some scraps and asked me to make a simple bag for her. Enjoy the evening!

Two packages .... one day! My SSCS package arrived. It came all the way from Leah in Australia. I was allowed to open the ornament gift, and below you can see the pretty angel. Thank you very much! The main gift has to wait until Christmas :-)My friend Anne in UK sent me an Advent package. It contained sweets and a handmade calender. The calender is already hanging on the wall, and I'll put sweets in each pocket. Thanks a lot for the nice gift!I hope you all have an enjoyable Advent!
