What is a week?

Many years ago my teachers told me that a week is 7 days, every day 24 hours, every hour 60 minutes and every minute 60 seconds. I don´t believe them any more....it´s impossible that the last week had 7 days....a couple of minutes or maybe an hour or two, but not 7 days....no......

I know my last post was on 5th December, can´t believe it....but ok, I´ve done a lot of things.

Saturday I was in Gothenburg together with my daugther and hubby. We started our day with some shopping. Josefin finally found the perfect fabric for her ball dress, wonderful silk in a wonderful light "dirty" turquoise colour. 10,5 meters, if that was perfect for her father´s wallet...I don´t know.
I will be the seamstress. And I will make dresses for two of her friends too. Exciting work....and wonderful girls....it will be fun.
Then we visited Liseberg, the funfair, where there was a Christmas market. Look at the pictures, (Josefin was the photographer ), no words neeeded.

To Santa´s world....

What do you want for Christmas?


On Sunday there was a very small Christmas market in our village, and because of that I spent the whole afternoon in my quilting studio if someone wanted to visit me....and yes, I have some visitors, fun!

On Monday I was on a little shopping trip all by myself. The first stop was Gekås in Ullared, Swedens most famous store? I bougth clothes and clothes and clothes...quite cheap. Next stop Tyger o ting in Burseryd, "my" quilt shop. Some more fabric for my Christmas gift quilt, blue, for the background and batting and a magazine and buttons and....love that place....

On Tuesday I went on another shopping trip together with a friend. We visited Helsingborg and a shopping centre called Väla. Some more clothes, thread and a computer desk for my son.... from IKEA.

Yesterday was an ordinary day, worked on the quilt for my son.

All this in only a couple of minutes.....or perhaps there are 7 days every week?

Today is a white day by me, snow......love it......light and fresh.....I´m dreaming of a white Christmas.....
Tonight it´s time for a Christmas concert.....longing....

Now for the clue. (The competition started 28/11) Only 12 days left and it´s not a secret anymore. "The thing" on this quilt is not made in a factory. You can find them in my part of the world but there are more of them in other places....I´ve seen some in Thailand, and touched one, that´s not an usual thing to do...
Next time I will show you some sneak peeks......

Happy Stitching,

Helena

Sälar? Delfiner? Hajar? Kanske underlig sak för din mamma att ha men man vet aldrig, kanske hon har en hajkäft som speciell juldekoration. :-D
