Hurry, Hurry ... Christmas Is Coming ...

Hello my dear friends,

( 'broken record alert' and possible over usage of the word ' again'!)

I can't believe that I have done it again ... I am behind with all sorts of things again. 

I have had and still have so much on my 'to do' list these days and again I only got some of it done. I think this happens every Christmas time. All year long I could work on  doing all sorts but I decide to put it all on my winter/Christmas 'have to do' list and then run out of time or just feel overwhelmed. Maybe next year I will finally do it different?!

This is what is one my work table right now ...

... there is some embroidering of seam binding roses ...

... which are turning out just so lovely.
They look like an 'old' English rose and so beautiful.

I am also adding that little special touch ...

... to the Christmas cards that I am sending out this year.
Remember my little how-to do little things that make your cards just look that bit nicer?!
Here is the link to that post ...

One of the other things that I am working on as well is a new little tutorial for my tutorial page here on Todolwen. I am just hoping that I will get it finished in the next week so I can share it with you soon. I am also working on some gifts for friends and family and a creation or two on top of that. As always too many things to do all at once but I think some of you might just be in the same place I am when it comes this time of the year.

Last but not least ...

... I just have to share a few photos of a very neat little furry girl squirrel that visits our garden every day now since weeks. She is so pretty and has such lovely fluffy ears. She loves to jump up on the railing of our deck, right at the kitchen window so that when I notice her, I will give her a little treat in the shape of a few peanuts or a piece of apple.

Isn't she just so cute?!

Well, that is what is going on here right now. I am sure it won't take too long before I have something new to share with all of you, so do stop by some time again and visit me here at Todolwen. You never know what I might have been up too.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. Ich mag deine Posts immer so sehr.Leider habe ich nicht immer die Zeit, alles zu kommentieren... sorry

  2. There always seems to be so much to do this time of year and too little time in which to do it. I compounded my time management issues by being away for a little over a month when I would normally have been working on Christmas projects. I love your wee roses!

  3. Que bonitos trabajos. PReciosa la fotografĂ­a de la ardilla!!!

  4. This time of year goes soooo quickly. Too fast for me too. Love your touches to your Christmas cards. Beautiful. Your little furry visitor is so cute too.

  5. I absolutely LOVE all those extra touches and attention to detail on cards. It sets them apart from all the others ... just as yours!
