A Beautiful Surprise from Switzerland!


This lovely little book, sent to me by an extraordinarily artistic and skilled Swiss quilt maker by the name of Maryline Collioud-Robert, couldn't have arrived at a better time. It happened to arrive just as that nasty old bug got hold of me. I didn't feel like doing much of anything but reading and knitting.

A Successful Cookie Party and A Flurry of Kosher Salt!


If it weren't for the Creative Jewish Mom, I would have never known about a most excellent tool called Inlinkz! And without Sara's help and advice, most likely I would not have been able to hold my Winter Holiday Cookie Recipe Swap!

So right off the bat I owe Sara a huge thank you!

Owl Love


I just love this little owl ornament to pieces! And I love LollyChops to pieces for creating the pattern and the tutorial for making it! Apparently, I am not the only one either! Check out her Abraham Owl Flickr Group.

More Scandi-goodness


Two more Scandinavian freiends today - Hannah who has been hanging out with me since the beginning of Gingerbread Snowflakes, and Kathryn who I only met this past fall. Their blogs and friendship have been huge sources of inspiration.
