Advent again

It is the time again...

I cannot believe it, it is Advent! The first Sunday was wonderful... A bit of chat with my crafty blog-friends then some time with my B, a bit of sewing (and I try to forget all the horrible things happened today in connection with exams, homeworks, books to learn and so on..)

Yesterday we spent the day with my best friend in totally Christmas mood. I enjoyed it so much!

On the way home it was high time to decide what kind of Advent wreath we would make... I was thinking and thinking... And then a beautiful picture came into my mind with snow, ice, polar bears, snowflakes. I wanted to make my polar friends happy so I decided to make a wreath matching the winter curtain in the kitchen (which is still in the wardrobe but I am going to change it soon.... I promise...)

So this is a blue- white- snowflake wreath, a very new design. I have never made anything crazy like it, but finally I was satisfied.... when I came home with it (it was still hot because of the hot glue...) a bit before 1 o'clock in the morning, my B was sleeping so he couldn't see it. He got up earlier than me today and took some wonderful pictures.... :D And made me happy in the morning with it.

He said something like this: When I saw the wreath these things came to my mind: coffee and biscuits in wintertime. Here is his pic:

WV Minibus - a big dream in small

Just 40 days until Christmas and I am still busy with birthday and nameday presents....
I didn't forget the October UFO but it is still a secret (just about 4 days), it is a birthday present....
I am in Christmas 'work'... I have already sent the advent swap parcel to Oz. I hope it has already left Europe...
So here is a bit of Christmas just to start this period :D I wrote these words some days ago...Then I did not have time to put them on (I have too much homework these days...) Then this day started....

So this was the birthday of my dear colleague who got this present. His big dream is to have a WV minibus so I tried to help somehow.... I found some good pictures and a modell pattern which helped me with this project. He was so happy to get it! I am really very happy now after his birthday dinner with other colleague-friends. Hey, see the minibus! (Actually it was a surprsie even for me when I finished... It is about 40 cm long and 20-25 cm tall. It is a pillow filled with silicone filling. I hope you like it, too!
And yes, this was the October finished project:
