Working on a present,finished some sewing,a mystery is resting in a box.

Continuing on a Christmas present for my DD. We managed to do some
bonding a couple of days ago my granddaughter and I. The rest of the
sewing will be mine, I guess; must really get a move on:))
Calendars for the coming days are prepared. I still make the ones for both
 my own children, always filled with enough goodies for SIL and DIL as well.
 Enjoyable to do so every year:-)
Another two calendars: a tree for me and a box for DH.
My calendar there is numbered from 1 to 24,  dates neatly wrapped
at Kathrine`s shop, all quilt-related bits and pieces. My DH`s is dated
from 1 to 25, a big box filled with lots of goodies from Pascal`s chocolate
shop. How nice that he also filled the 25th. day of December with goodies.
I just finished the lining of the two stockings (should have been done
last year), just waiting now to be hung by the fireplace at my DD`s place.
The cutting is done. I have followed the instructions on my I-pad. But
unfortunately it will all have to wait in the box till after Christmas this year.
So the mystery quilt will be finished some time after the New Year.
My quilt-group went on a bus-trip early this morning. I was supposed to
travel with them to visit a big glass factory as well as a quilt shop.
Hope the trip was enjoyable, next year it will be my turn.
Happy pre Christmas time to you all, from Grethe. AND yes, I am
really waiting for my SSCS present, bound to come soon :))

You are certainly busy doing Christmas craft. One of the things there looks familiar! I am looking forward to seeing the finished product. I hope your DD will enjoy it.
Happy crafting.
