I'm a little bit worried.....

... that people thought that this was really my advent calender.....


...well... it's not...

I found this wonderful picture and idea on one of those social media places.....

... I may or may not fantasize about having it ....

.... but it is more likely to be bottles of home brew beer ....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is what I have been quilting just around the edges of the red wool ....


and sewing these blocks.....


... and these ones.....



... some people might not like the wine idea....

.... so I found something else for you to enjoy ..... 



..... which I also do not have in my house....

... though I may... or may not .... fantasize about it...
(it is the silly season after all!)

Righto, Gotta Go.... (humming Jingle bells)

I thought that it was one of the best Advent Calendars that I have ever seen! Go for it I say. Couldn't view your surprise, but I think that I can guess the theme.

Oh boy........now I'm really disappointed, I'm mean no wine is one thing.....but the lack of 6 hot men is another....so let down at the moment.

Unknown said...

Hey great, this has been an awesome help to me, I have had some really strange annoyances in my personal life recently and it is funny how certain things can really pick you back up or make you look differently on the horrible things and get working on the other things in life. Anyway thank you a lot.

Disappointed - that wine advent calendar looked perfect to me. A great idea to share with friends.
