Playing with Magda..

I have been clever so far this year.. wonder how long it will last :-)
But this is what Magda and I have been playing with ... The first are a "mail joy" I got from Hanne just before christmas... Isn't great :-) Thank you Hanne. it will be on my wall next Christmas
Magda and I have been digging deep in my UFO pile and have two more finish this month... Realy old tablerunners.. The pattern are AnnAKa's - aboth two years old -- I belive LOL but on the pattern it says 2005 - and I started to make the when it was fresh pattern.. Oh dear times runs.. But now they are done.. It is so fun to do Buttonhole stitches with Magda. I use to get Buttonhole stitches-refusal , but now I feel those days are gone :-)
I got to show you my new thimbles too, Christmas gifts ( luckey me) The Polska one I got from my aunt Astri and the one from Australia I got from Sølvi. Thank you so mutch both of you. I even got some fabrics from them --- What I make of it I will show when it is done :-)
I got a big surprice in my mail box just before New year... A letter from Japan :-) A thimble with traditional design and a hankerchief with small rabitsall over. I can't use it as a hankerchef... It is so beautifull , so by me it is going to be a little tablerunner to bring me good luck. This year are the rabits year in Japan. Thank you Julie, you are so kind to me. I will find you a little from Norway and send to you too :-)
At last I want to wish you all a happy new year - with or with out rabbits :-)
I was with Emma and Peder on the last nigth of 2010.. here they are looking at some "Stjerneskudd" I don't know the English name of it- but it is some sticks when set on fire they will make" stars"...
So untill next time have fun and play with your UFO's.
Hugs :-9

Hi Laila, Glad your thimble made it OK. You really don't have to send me anything. Your friendship is enough and I don't have to worry where to put it! The heart is always big enough for adding friends.
