I hope you all had a marvelous Christmas. It seemed it went so fast this year!
Now I'm preparing my suitcase for my trip to London in a few days. I'm gonna be away for over 3 weeks living my hubbie behind as he cannot escape the hospital for such a long time :(

Before I go, here are a few pictures of things that "Santa" brought this year.
A Christmas swap with Ryoko who generously sent me some lovely wool yarns in my favourite colours, knitting and crochet books, beautiful handmade card, cute buttons, stickers, cookies and a tracing thingie (dont know the name!) Thanks so much Ryoko! it is all so beautiful.

From me, she received a scrapbooking book and magazine, a novel on Provence, Hawaiian candies and some French soaps:

The French DMC 2007 Diary was a present to myself. It has some really cute patterns about cooking:

I also got a selection of Japanese books from my DH. I will post pictures later.

I guess, it's time to put the Christmas ornaments back in their box!

Have a great week end!

Sapin de noël

Hubbie and I had a lovely day in Pasadena on Sunday. First a trip to the Rose Bowl Flea market where I picked up some lovely vintage Christmas ornaments and then a champagne brunch at a Japanese/French restaurant. On the way back home, we picked up a Christmas tree. Counting down the days...!

The beginning of pair #2

Sorry, I haven't been very present lately. With Christmas approaching, things have been really hectic! I still find time to knit my second pair. I'm trying a new style this time. I'm going from the toe up and doing a gusset style heel.

Have a great week end!
