Advent, the 4th candle is lit

Is today really already the 4th Advent and in a few days Christmas?
I had so much planned, all the things I wanted to do. But then unfortunately a nasty cold came in between. Fortunately, the C-test is negative.
Last year a cold was just that. A cold. This year I’ve already had 4 tests and each time the wait with : do I have it or not?

Actually, I wanted to make a new picture with my Advent wreath and candles every Sunday. As I said, the stupid cold came in between. But today at least the wreath with 4 glowing candles 🙂

Last year I had Hanna knit me beautiful sweaters, because when I knit myself, it just doesn’t look nice and even. She even embroidered maritime motifs on my last sweater.

That gave me the idea to have something made for the Christmas season. An embroidered Advent calendar.
Even if I can not embroider myself, I love the designs of V. Enginger. They are so cute and retro. I even have some of her books.
Hanna and I picked some designs for my Advent calendar from the books.

I waited almost a year for it. First, because there are quite a few parts and second, because Christmas was soooo far away. 😀

What do you say? Aren’t they just adorable?

Originally I wanted to make little bags out of all the embroidery. But when I picked up all the pieces, I noticed that some motifs are very large.

When I sew a little bag from it, you can no longer see the motif completely.

I’ll have to figure out the best way to do that. Maybe sew little bags and then sew the motif on the fabric.

Could look interesting, depending on what color the fabric has. Maybe red or green or even tartan I can imagine.

Stay healthy and safe ❤ ❤ ❤
