SSCS Parcel Arrived!

And guess how happy and thankful we are!
Thank you, Sue!!
;O)
Purr-How we can be without having to open them
BOTH????

Oh Fenix, control yourself!
I think we will open that smaller present on next Sunday, when it's the first Advent...
then we are starting to decorate our home for the Christmas. 
And I want to hold the secret as long as possible...
I LOVE SECRETS!!!

BOMholic 'Attacks' Again


I know I should do something other than start a new BOM...

this close Christmas...


but WHO can resist these fabrics and colours?????






AND these cute PUMPKINS in Pumpkinville???? designed by Anne Sutton (yes, Anne's pattern again + ordered from Fat Quarter Shop;o)

May I say...
no one...
atleast I couldn't!

Now I'm thinking I could in good time to make the promise of a new year... and IF I could keep it, the next autumn I have a lovely new quilt on my wall ;o)
(UPS! Did I make a huge mistake, when I said it loud?)

Last Tuesday I posted my SSCS parcel to my SECRET partner. It should be in it's destination on the first days of December...

 
... hopefully it will be there.

HAPPY SUNDAY to YOU, my Dear READERS!!!

S Things

means nowadays mainly SECRETS

But I have a few other S -things, 
which I can show you immediately.


First I have crocheted some bling - bling Snowflakes.

But I'm not satisfied with the combination of pearls and yarns which I have used:
the colour of the pearls is not just right or the yarn is maybe too thick...

I have played with the Sudoku and created a Small blue-orange 9- patch background for the other Secret quilt.
Oh, you see...

  Fenix has found a orange patch ;o)

and is enjoying already with the next S -things...

 which is Shopping.
At this weekend there is a big Finnish handcrafts fair at Tampere...

... a lot of nice, interesting, amazing things to see, hear and touch...
and some of them you can't resist!
So you just have to shop them;o)

 I bought more tiny pearls... so maybe more snowflakes to come... then I found some very gentle scrapping papers... I might need them before this Christmas... and I really fell in love these funny transfer pictures, down below right.
Oh, I'm sure I'll spend many Sweet times along these things!

And Fenix found - again - HIS favorite things easily...

 big buttons and butterflies... and there is also three roll of the washi -tape, which are my favorites too.

Besides with those irresistable things, 
I think these are the right Q-vitamin, which I have needed for a long time now...

a craft holder, (only few!) new fabrics, adorable Aurifil -threads, VERY inspiring japanese quilt magazine
and super-cute Macaron coin purse kit from Tilkkutarha.

Because I have played quite a lot with the yarns recently...

 ... I couldn't resist buy some more...

Oh, did you purr-'Say' something, Fenix?

PURR-oh, Stop that chatter and continue your Sew things here, Satu!
It's time to wrap your Secret Santa Claus Present for your partner SOON!!!!
Don't worry, Fenix.
I have almost done all for her...

We wish you Happy Sunday;o)

Christmas in Mind...

 ... which always means SECRET PROJECTs...

... and I can show them just a little...

... but these mittens are no secret.
The yarn is PURO by Novita. It's 100% wool and suits well for felting.

 This was my first time, when I felted knitted mittens in washing machine.
Hmmm... I say... very exciting experience...
I don't know what happened, 
but after the washing treatment the left hand mitten was the right hand mitten... very odd...
maybe it was due to the Halloween...

But this is not a spooky thing, which is hanging here.

Early in this autumn... or was it summer... 
I took part in Anna hyvän kiertää - challenge on Tiinatei's blog.
She post me this nice towel with a glorious quilted ribbon.
Kiitos, Tiinatei ;o) 
I love it!!!

 Finally...
