Secret SCS Parcel Is no Secret Anymore

Late last night I...
oj, sorry Fenix... 
WE opened our SSCS present from Jenny.
Our Christmas tree is a little cypress and the Kangoroo has found a new place sitting comfortably on one branch of cypress. Maybe you remember Jenny's main parcel was a big one...

... and inside there was...
1. ADORABLE Hootie bag... I love all of it: colours, prints, size, shape, the owl, the button, inside pockets and... you know ALL!!! Later you'll see I'm not the only one here to love it ;o)
2. HUMOROUS Decoration... "Quilting for ever, housework when ever"... I think no other sentence can describe my life better :o)
3. YIPPEE!!! More aussie sentiment for my home. Lovely piece of cotton with aboriginal (?) print and koala stickers ;))) My secret dream is to travel to Australia some day... UPS! I relieved one more secret ;)

Well, I'm sure you did all your best to delight me on this Christmas, Jenny...
but I think you didn't success only delight me...
but you gave me piece of your country...
so I'm one or two steps closer to my dream :o)
THANK YOU, thank you, KIITOS, JENNY
for this regardful present!!!

... and you notice
the bag is carefully INSPECTED
and
PROVED to be a very cosy lying place.
 Hopefully I may use it too...

We wish you more relaxing days...
we'll be back with the other nice things...

A Rustle of Giftpapers...

.. is getting louder and louder here...
Today and tomorrow is time to wrap the last gifts...

... and only two nights, then these pot holders are again unwrapped.

Also Bev (my SSCS friend in this year) may unwrap her parcels in Australia

Thank you Moomins, you did your job well... 
You can't imagine, how relieved I was, when I saw this photo on Bev's blog. I had few lousy nights because of worrying that packet... The delivering took much more longer than the post officer estimated.
Now all is fine ;o)

 We'll meet again after Christmas...
until then
my faithful dear friends...
Let your heart be light
and have merry time with your closest!

Fourth Advent...

... and still no SNOW!
It's only raining and raining.... AND raining!
It's dark, windy and dirty outside...

 ... so it's better stay inside and clean the house for the Christmas.

Fenix: First I cleaned one of the shelves in the sewing room. During past months Satu has gathered all kind of stuff on it... and I decided they are not there anymore...

... well, now they are on the floor!
And one odd piece is on my head!!!

  Look, Fenix what we got the other day...

A lovely Christmas decoration, a card and a pincushion from Katrin!

It's not a bad feeling at all wandering around the house with this new 'cap'

Or does it look... too girlish???

But Satu, What are YOU doing???? 
We supposed to clean this house.... NOT doing any crafty projects!!!

Ok, Fenix! 
But May-Britt's stitching pattern is so cute. Maybe I'll use it on a Christmas stocking.
And I want to try also Anne's new pattern called It's Raining Cats and Dogs.
The birdie trio is the first UFO, which I'll finish in January. Haven't you heard that I'll finish atleast one UFO in every month in 2012?

Don't you pur-pur-laugh at me, Fenix!
This time I'm very serious! Otherwise we'll be drowned... all these UFOs...

PurrrrRelax, Satu! 
Look, I organized more nice coloured mat on this floor!
.. and... pur-jättekiva :o)
you also have done something...

Now...

it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here
... only few nights... and then...

We are very happy 
that you found a moment to visit here...
  ... It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas;
soon the bells will start,
and the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
right within your heart.

Third Advent with...

... Christmas cards!!!

And on the cutting mat - a totally chaos! Does not look like a space in the sewing room...

I choosed two main theme for the cards in this year...


FENIX says:

I'm off! Too much pastel colours!!!!
See you again, when you are handling some nicer colours!

and the second theme is...


Oh, Fenix is back :o)


Now almost all Christmas cards are written and in the envelopes... 
only three of them are still 'under consideration' :o)
Lucky - there is also still time for them!

Fenix says:
I wish you merry preChristmas time!!!!

PS. If it only can be... there is more terrible chaos in the sewing room....

Happy Greetings to Australia!

We spent exciting moments, when opening the smaller parcel...

... but before it, we read Jenny's letter. 
And after that we discovered - very carefully - those pretty decorations.
I'm so happy!
KIITOSthanks Jenny!!!

It's difficult to resist opening the main parcel...
Please, come quick Christmas Eve ;o)
