H A P P Y N E W Y E A R !!!

I wish you all a fantastic start of 2009.

Yesterday, walking home from work... (YES work!, I did my first day after being home with little boys the last 4 1/2 years) there was the thinnest moon - so with new moon I hope for a new start.

Swedish Christmas in the UK

H A P P Y X M A S - G O D J U L

This is how excited two little boys are when they're about to meet Tomten...

...and this is the rather fat Tomte that visited us this year. Yes, he (she?) found his way all the way to London. A shame that mummy just had to nip out to the shops...
Elliot wasn't very convinced though... "- I think Tomten talk just like my mum!"

Slippers Tomten brought us. They all had leather-soles sewn on to them.

Yarn: Garnstudio's Eskimo, Pattern also from Garnstudio.

Yarn: Villmark. Pattern from Eks Lilla Bod

LinkChristmas Bolero for a little girl. Both pattern and yarn from Stoff och Stil.

My Christmas present last years was a chocolate-course with Liz at Sweet Sensations. Yum! So, here are some delicious, homemade, guilt-free truffles. Only healthy stuff!

Winter Fayre 2008

So, yesterday we finally had our Winter Fayre and it was a great success. Our craft stall alone made £935,-. Fantastic!

It was truly a wonderful day for everyone! Great home-made, organic and vegetarian food, loads of childrens activities, healing corner, silent auction, raffle, school shop, craft stall and lovely music all day long.
A big thank you to everyone who helped to organize it all and of course to all who came on the day!

Last night was the first program of a series of Wallander here on BBC. In the announcement they mentioned the beautiful Swedish landscape, and boy is it beautiful. The sea - how I miss the sea.
Sunday evenings are now booked. Doesn't make it any worse that Kenneth Branagh is starring...
