Must post pics of the gingerbread house we made with my sister at christmas. Was a bit difficult to get the pieces to stick together so I'm not sure if it's going to be a house next year ;)

This cap was a one day project. Made it a few days ago. Have got a red one from before :) My sister says they don't look nice at all I don't care about that..ha..ha :D

Made only 4 christmas cards this year. So it was bought ones this year ;)

Did bake some gingerbreads today.. It's some bought pastry. I don't like the taste of it so much, but wanted to try it :D
Would like to bake some with ownmade pastry soon ;)

When I was to the shop the other day I was just going to take a look at the yarns there..but somehow three yarnballs came home with me :D White and pink..lovely colours.
When I was going to take a pic little E came and wanted to play with the always. No wonder my yarns are in a big mess so often :P

And you can see I now found the right theme for my blog that I'm happy with. ( have been looking around, testing, etc ;) ) I also want to add my favourite song here with the lovely winter movie..Hope you like it.
It brings tears into my eyes.
Have seen it about hundreds of times since I was a little girl.. :)

Not much knitting done the last few days. :(
Feels like I get up in the mornings, then work, so home and soon to bed then work again..pheewww...blaaahh :(
Have'nt yet made any decisions about workthings so everything is a bit mixed up at the moment, and it mixes up ME even more..ha-ha!!
Was wondering if anyone know any nice free templates, skins for blogger blogs????
I like this one but you can't add comments to the posts and it's not so nice :(
Please put a link in my chat box if you know anything and wan't to share..ok ;)

Had a great day with my friend at the craft show. Went in the morning and came home a while ago :D
Did some shoppings, and would have loved to buy so much more..ha-ha..Like always.
So much inspiration and ideas I got from the show too.

My shoppings:

Novita Aino and Huopanen yarn
On Line yarn
Felted flowers
Reflector thread ( not sure about the right word for it ;) )
Gold thread for bobbin lace
Coloured wool

In a shop there near I found this bracelet and fell in love with it right away coz' the glass pearls are just my colours. Light pinc, lilac.

And from the show I got the picture of this beautiful angel. And bought the frame from a shop.

Already made a plan that we are going next year again :)
I think I must start to save money already lol ;)

Shoulder and neck is'nt much better :(

Had a look in artist Anu Tuominens book today and she has craftworks that I like. There's something fun and different about them and they give inspiration. They tell much and are humorous too. Thought I post some pics of her art here :)
