Time is running fast

Sorry it´s been a while since I posted
Time is running so fast for me these days.
Have finished a few project though, so next
weeks is going to be much better.

All the advent presents are bought.
Only need to finish the last homemade one.
and yes - sweet children, if you read this,
one of you is going to have homemade gifts this year :-)

I´ve also finished this little Christmas Collage

the background is the cover of an old book.
Layers of fabric, lace, ribbon, trims
and an old watch.
It´s now in the shop

The weather have been cloudy and rainy over here
so I had some trouble taking photos of
the next project.
I´ve been working on a privat swap
for a very sweet German friend
and I´m only going to show a little sneak peek
as the package will go in the mail
tomorrow and I´m not going to spoil
the surprise for Sweet 'J'.
Please bear with these dark photos
I promise it all looks so much better in real

The bears for the next online show
Teddies Worldwide
next weekend is finished
and I have finished my show page today too.
So everything is ready - set - go
A little sneak peek of that later this week.

Also signed up for the
Vintage Stocking Swap
over at Joli Paquet

This is going to be fun.
I´m really excited to see who´s
gonna be my swap partner.
Today is the last day for sign ups
so if you haven´t already hurry over then.

Wishing you all a wonderful sunday
Tina ♥♥♥

The Christmas collage is just as gorgeous as everything else you make! And there is going to be one very happy swap partner in Germany, I think, going by the little snippet you have shown.
