December 24th

Merry Christmas, everyone! I can't believe it is the 24th already, the day all the people in Finland and all happy critters in Riverland start celebrating! And that is what we are going to do too, and just take a look at our party-room!

We are all here! And just look what Mia got us for Christmas...

... We got Moomin-mugs!

And Adele opened mail that came all the way from USA too, her and Anabel's sister Alma lives there, and I know she would have wanted to participate, but she has her own big Party to host at Robin's too

She sent some beautiful stitch markers for knitting, we will love to use those, and always think of you when we see them!

And everyone got my Christmas-card too!

Remember the pictures we took? This is what we went for:

I think it's pretty, and everyone loved it too! Oh, now Adele is taking out some presents...

...aren't they just packed like her - did you notice her new diamond-belt&bracelets? And oh my, some more presents are miraculously appearing here and there!

I think it is time us to continue our celebrating, and with you all a

Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

And we would love to thank you all reading&commenting, it has been such a wonderful month! And Mia and I also decided, that as there are quite a few of you who still have one window to open in your calendars, we will be back tomorrow again! See you then!

Hello Vivienne,

We love our new mugs! Mia said she tried to look for a tea set, but when she saw those Moomins in Riverland-size, she could not resist :)
We are going to spend whole day together, and I wish you a wonderful day too with your loved ones!

See you tomorrow still!

Hello Robin,

Lovely Christmas to you, see you soon again!

Hei Anneli!

Ihana kuulla, että olette lukeneet tarinoitamme, täällä jo vähän häntä meinasi mennä huolesta kippuralle, kun ei teidän kommenttejanne vähään aikaan näkynyt! Ihanaa joulunaikaa teille sinne, ja kiitos yhteisestä joulukuun matkasta!

Toivottavasti nähdään taas pian!

Hello dear Beth,

This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
