I forgot to post last week well because I didn't have much progress. I did have my friends come over and we finally finished my Dining Chair Upholstery Project. So having all of my chairs look like new and beautiful made me very happy.
But for everything else craftwise...well let's just say I got a little overwhelmed and bit off WAY more than I could chew. Unfortunately I didn't finish the stockings for my family this year which I was bummed about but I have a whole year left to finish them up for next year. Also I am way behind on making the Grandparents Christmas presents and sending out any presents and even our Christmas cards. The cards really aren't my fault I have been waiting for over a month for the pics I ordered to put in the cards to arrive by mail...and they STILL aren't here :(.
I guess you can say that I was a bit burned out on the Holidays this year and being a mom of a little girl who rarely sleeps more than a few hours without waking up. But something changed on Christmas Eve and I finally saw how lucky I am this Christmas to have a wonderful family and be living in a Winter Wonderland (aka Norway!)
Here is the beautiful snowstorm we were treated to the day after the birth of God's only son in Oslo!
I swear the snow was coming down by the handful...you can see it a bit better here...
I bought this in Copenhagen at a local Hobby Shop while I was a student there. Upon closer inspection of the price tag and it turns out that it was Panduro the same shops we have here in Oslo! Anyways I thought that it had the look of a Carl Larsson painting and recently my little girl had pulled off a book of his off my shelf. So it turns out it is one of his works "Letter writing" see below.
I went a little backwards on working on it because I had made what I thought were tons of errors but it turned out not to be too bad. But I did and still have to rip out a few stitches but here is my "progress."
Anyways Happy Stitching to you all and thank you to all of my wonderful followers!
