Description

I was asked to test a pattern - I won't be much help with the spelling

2012/11/22
some late evening sewing and I'm almost done - the binding, the numbers and a "count down" elf are still missing

2012/11/23
pheww that was no marathon testing, that was more a sprint. Jen needed her pattern back really really really soon - so I spent the last two nights sewig and the days with lots of coffee and a rather short temeper - but I did it. Well of course I made some mistake I'm just not abel to follow a pattern I don't know what my problem is, but I always measure soemthing wrong or do somethign else strange.

PS: sorry for some of the awful late night bad lighting pictures ...

So now who gets this: My Mother - she had the guts to tell me I was too old to get my traditional advet caledar (*sobb*) - so I'm going to prove that there is no such thing as being too old for an advent calendar. [I'm sewing my own at the moment to allow room for the traditional filling, but this small one goes to her]. Pahh too old.

Pictures

filled house
a sun bathing christmas Elf - not for long don't want the chocolate to melt
don't you love agianst the sun shots?
empty house
I did some more quilting than the pattern said, but I had a very thick batting and was having a hard time putting anything in the "windows", and the roof was a bit boring
that was supposed to look like snow or so
the "windows"
I added the orange one for the 24
the yellow and purple for the house and the strips stuff for the doors/windows

LOL about spelling and awesome you are a tester! And you added the new caption options way cool!! Really like your fabrics and look forward to seeing it become a quilt!

I love everything "house"ish. Can't wait to see what you are making.

This is great and there is no such thing as too old! My 89 year old mother still uses the one I made for her;-)

Really cute and love the colors-stripes and plaids are so cheerful
