UFO-sewing and the SSCS.

An Advent/Christmas Calendar to be, pattern by AnnAKa Design.
It is more than half finished. 
I have kept it safe in one of my X-mas boxes!
I don`t know about you, but I seem to have too many UFOs. It is
very easy for me to say yes to new projects and then letting the
box (read boxes) with the UFOs just be resting peacefully on a shelf :))

This year too I joined Chookyblue`s SSCS. This secret swap is great fun!
I know my recipient`s name, but try NOT to let her know that I am
  her secret Santa 2014. I have slowly started to work on the present 
 for my new SSCS friend :-)  On my lefthand sidebar you may see
the "to and from" of  my previous years with this swap :)) 

Have fun with your sewing! No snow yet in  my area 
as the rain keeps pournig down,,,  from Grethe xx

Kalenderen blir kjempefin! Det gode med UFObokser er jo nettopp at man kan plukke fram slike skatter og fortsette på dem

Your Advent calendar is very cute. But you better get busy, Christmas will be here before you know it.

Flott kalender du holder på med? Og takk for hyggelig kommentar til min beskrivelse av disappearing hourglassblokka! Du bare må prøve disse disappearingblokkene! Så enkle, og så blir de så fine! Men det ser ut til at du har mange prosjekter på gang! Ha en fin sydag, været virker perfekt for syåktiviteter!


Hi Grethe--
I love that ladder with the little girls on it--and hope that you will be able to finish it this year, so that you can enjoy it!!
hugs, di and miss gracie

LOL! I don't think you are very unusual with your UFO's. I am also easily tempted by new projects, and the old ones are on the shelf (or in a draw, or in a basket...)
I like your advent calendar :-)

I often use the lovely shoe bag you gave me for my SSCS swap.
I have started sewing for my SSCS friend also.

It's amazing to think ladies all over the world are now sitting sewing in heat or cold to give a special gift to another lady somewhere in the world who is on the same mission. AMAZING .. Thanks To Chookyblue.
