1. FNSI December - Results

I know I´m late for posting about my FNSI results - to be honest I was just to lazy to download the pics and post about. Better late than never..... here they are......

I´m done quilting and now......

.... the quilt keeps me busy with sewing in threads

this is what I´ve got done in 1,5 h

Not alot but better than nothing right!?!

X-Mas Tree Is Up

It has been already last week when I put up the Chrismas tree.........I always love to use my grandmas crochet white ornaments.

Its been 18 years ago in September..... my Nana was at the hospital when I asked her for the pattern to those ornaments. A couple of weeks later, when she was back home from the hospital Nana started crocheting ornaments like crazy. I asked her for whom she is making the ornament and she answered that she dont really remember - someone has asked her while she was in the hospital about the pattern but since she dont have a pattern for them she thought she would just make them. Close to tears I told her that it was me who asked for the pattern. That was the last gift I´ve got from my Nana....... she passed away in March the following year.

I´m sure the un-decorating will be alot faster......

with the help of my furry elves......... but hopefully after X-mas :D

 lighten up in the evening

I dont have a tree skirt and I checked the net for a pattern I would like.... found one but I doubt that I will have it until this Christmas but defently will be done by next year!

First FNSI December

Any plans for this comming Friday? What about to join the

Christmas Market In Nürnberg/Nuremberg

Saturday Micha, Andrea and I went to the Christkindlesmarkt in Nürnberg. Its always fun to stroll through Nürnberg and do some shopping and at this time of year we strolled through the Christkindlesmarket.

it looks gigantic......

here we go

oh boy...... it looks like its gonna be crowded......yep it was

after we got pushed through a few ailes.... we thought it was time for a Glühwein-break :D

the whole pedestrian zone is nicly decorated

I´m sure some of you have used pens and pencils made by Faber-Castell - they are very common in Germany - well here is a part of the factory

Wallhanging & Deco-Swap

Last Friday Marianne and I had a little quilting bee again. I think its much more fun when friends sit together for some sewing and chatting - sadly Angela couldnt make it this time.

Well, I would say we had a great evening - Marianne was working on her winter quilt......

......the quilt is amazing - Marianne handquilted it and here she is working on her binding
(sorry for the lousy quality of the pic - it took it with my cell phone)

and I have finished my Halloween-wallhanging...... finally!

I´m already looking forward to our next little get together - *hint-hint* :D


And I have received my goodies out of the Deco-Swap Sandra has organized in FB.

It turned out that Sandra was my secret swap partner. Look how supercute the little trees are, the gorgous MugRug with my initial on and buttons slide on a wire ring....

Thank you so much Sandra and thank you for having the idea for the swap and organizing it!
