survived the weekend

Despite the fact that I was sick for the past two days and that our internet was down at home, making me completely and absolutely disconnected from the world... I have a nice weekend.

On Saturday I woke up feeling like crap, sore throat and my sinus acting up, but I toughen up and with the help of some good old drugs, got the house clean and ready for a "Girls Night" Christmas Style...

We had a fantastic time!

Lots of food, lots of laughs, pressies and just fun girly time!!!
Food, food, food, yummy!!!
Smile to the camera girls!

Santa Steal Gift Exchange... Toni got my lovely fossil bag!
In the Christmas Spirit- girl Style!
So, besides trying to get over this nasty cold I have, I also had time to work on my Christmas gifts for the girls at work.

This year I decided to make some potholes for everybody, so far I am done with 2 and have half of other two to go...

Potholders finished
Got the front of the other two done... now I just need to work on backing.

Dunno why blogger is uploading both potholders photos upside down?!?!? Oh well, you get the idea, right?

Hope everybody had a nice weekend, and for the lucky girls that participated on the giveaway I will make sure to post everybody's packages on the mail this week!

Have a wonderful week : )

Dear Sunshine!
Those potholders are SO beautiful, espcially the pink/yellow/purple caught my eye :-)
Hope you are feeling better now. I missed your give-away, but then again, I have your lovely package to look forward to, so I´m "gifted" anyway ;-)
Am soon of to my family in Jutland for the christmas days, and tomorrow is my last day at work, then I have 6 days off.
Merry christmas to you and your family!!! Big hug from Anna E.

First of all, I hope by the time you read this that you are feeling better. I get so uplifted every time I see pictures from your parties - it always looks like you are having such a blast (and what a fun bunch of girls). And your potholders are DELIGHTFUL... I heart!! They would sell so well on Etsy.
I have been working 24/7 (literally) with rescues and ill cats - it's a heartwrenching situation at the moment. It's full of kittens from the summertime that is now left to fend for themselves - they are virtually all running around with flus and other infections. The vet is luckily on my side and is now showing me a bit of "how to" every time I'm there. Over the weekend I found an extremely ill cat (dying from hunger because it had ulcers on its tounge). They showed me how to force-feed it - not pleasant, but neccesary in the given situation. Your Christmas generosity landed at a time where I've realised I'm at the point of no return (yes I know, people from the outside probably saw it before me!!) - I am running a lifetime cat haven (lifetime because no one wants to adopt them). It's a peculiar feeling - such calm has come over me and I feel so blessed every day.
Mariasol, my lovely friend - get better real soon.
