Christmas Decorations with gold stars!
It is unbelievable how time flies! I guess I am not the only one who feels that way. It is now over one year since I headed for China on a big adventure to live in another country that is in many ways very different from Sweden.
It has been a year of a lot of new experiences and new friends. Most interesting is how to get by, when you can not make yourself understood in English. Anyhow, that is another part of the story!
Now it is time for me to move back to Sweden, to my home, my children and my new family member, our cat Markus. He has been a great support, sitting next to me during my internet lectures in Chinese; maybe he knows it better than me?
For my home in China, I have sewn more home decorations! A lot of gold stars! Red and gold are the most popular colors in China. First out was this table runner with a design from the Husqvarna Viking Design Collection; #137 “Swedish Santa Kit”
For my Christmas tree I embroidered in gold the NEW Husqvarna Viking Design Collection: #265“Christmas Lace II”
. I think they are fabulous.
As we are invited to some friends before I leave China, I have embroidered some small Mini Santa’s to give away as presents. Here is a link to the PDF file with the sewing instructions and pattern
and the embroidery file
(zipped) if you want to embroider some too! Of course as I had it all set up, I embroidered a bunch for our home as well, so they are in a lot of spaces here, making our home sparkle for Christmas.
I wish you all
A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Look forward to a new fantastic joy of sewing year of 2014! I can hardly wait to go back to the office in beginning of January!
