Snow at last...

At last the snow has come.. no more dark evenings. To day I went outside and found the snow sticky. So i had to make me a snow-lantern. I put a candle in it and ligth it this evening. It is beautiful.
Yesterday I went to a class with May Britt- it was needleturn workshop. A lot of A-ha from the girls. We all enjoy the class, and did great work..I will show mine next time .. It is not all done yet.
A lot of busy girls, not only sewing we also did a lot of chatting :-)
May Britt was staying at mine house.. We had a great evening with sewing and chatting... and a little wine:-) May Britt brought some kit - Christmas Bauble by Hatched and Patched. They was so great so I had to make some of my own...
It is my first attempt to use wool- felt. Funn and easy- I have to make more from it. I got the Felt at Katrines Quilte Stue the last time I went there. So here are my first finish this month.A Christmas Bauble...
Yesterday I got this wonderfull parsell in mail from Sølvi.Two thimbles , one from Røros and one from Rørvik. And look at the sockings. Not for everyday use.Thank you Sølvi - I love it all. Hugs :-)
There has been a lot of change in my house. I got a great joiner to do all the hard work. I'm going to hire out a part of the house. It is to big for me alone. So when May Britt got here, she brought new tools with her. I asked her to go and buy it after I saw it in a advertising. Ladies tool... all pink. So now I can decorate my wall by my self :-) All my photos and quilts are moving around...
This is my new sewing area in the sitting room. I can watch TV when I sew...
And here are my new wall- almost done. All the skirting are missing, but I got the Yuletide Joy Quilt on the wall -- Early start of the christmas season this year LOL I love the look of my sitting room now. And to morrow Jacob are comming home from his trip. Wonder what he will think of our new home :-)

Skulle gjerne vært sammen med dere, needle turn er min favoritt metode for håndsøm :o) Det rosa verktøyet ditt er bare helt hærlig. Jeg har noe lilla/rosa verktøy, og det blir ikke borte fra verktøykassa mi...lol..... lurt ! Ser veldig koseligt ut med snølykt, det må jeg også prøve å lage en dag :o)))

I am glad you had such a good workshop. I will be waiting to see what you have made.
The Christmas hanging looks beautiful. You are way ahead of me. I finished an Advent calendar for my daughter but my house is still decorated for fall. The leaves here are colorful and no winter yet.
