Advent



 Hello my dear friends,
I can't believe that the countdown for Christmas already started as today is the fist of Advent here in Germany and of course I'm dreaming of a white Christmas.



Since the vase for the Christmas bouquet didn't match I sewed a fabric bag for it.The graphic came from the Graphics Fairy. Thank you so much Karen.




The Christmas stocking I finished today  and I'm pleased how it turned out.
More to come as I signed up for Nancy's class.
Don't be surprised  if I'm very quiet next week as I'm having major dental work done and I won't be a happy camper.
Wishing you all a  wonderful week and thank you so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments.


 Hugs and love,

Your Christmas decoration is very beautiful, my dear Marie! The stocking turned out lovely and what a great idea to sew a fabric bag for the vase.
I keep my fingers cross that your dental appointment won't be too bad and I'll think of you.
Have a wonderful afternoon!
Big hugs to you,
Julia

Marie
Glorious creations, particularly the stocking.
I so wanted to sign up but life has dictated otherwise at the moment (elderly relatives).
Good luck with the dental work - you are so brave.
Wishes

Beautiful pieces, Marie. The lace on the stocking is absolutely gorgeous! I hope things go well for you at the dentist. Do you have ice packs ready for afterward? (And hopefully they will give you some good painkillers.)

Marie,
Love your decorating, so crisp & Nordic! Love the advent candles! I can't wait to see your new stockings. I made a few this year too, can never have enough. Did you do a citris-solve transfer for your tree bag?
Please take good drugs after your dentist appt. & take it easy. I have serious work done last year, 2 impants & it was not fun!
