Wellcome the new year 2006

Ullas Fiber Blog

Happy New Year to you all.

My latest embroidery will symbolize the dream of a great prom on New Year Eve .Well only a dream.The best just now we have been together all the family and we have enjoyed a nice dinner together,When you have grown up children you know it's very special to have thrm at home at the same time.

My second dream is to have a day of peace all over the world.It seems to be only a dream.The long for power makes many people/states to kill somebody trying to reach the controll over the world.

Take care of you.
Catch the day.

Today we have had a calm day ,really a day of relaxation.The Christmas Eve is our big ,a bit hectic day and Christmas day we rest and enjoy being with the family too.My DH and I have been married for 26 years today.It's worth a Nobel prize I think.

Latvian mittens-so many lovely mittens

So happy.My Latvian mittens -a patternbook with latvian mittens in many lovely patterns and colours.We have a Knit along here in Sweden where we try to do some of the mittens and I'm going to do a pair but I don't know which.

We have the lapplanders un the north of Europe and they also do mittens in bright colours and with some patterns which seem be relatives.Also on the island ,Gotland,they use some patterns much alike the latvian but they use the natural colours.

I found this blog and she has done a mitten I like very much.

Nu är också jag i sjunde himlwn

Nu är också med bok.Beställde den genom Bastel Hobbykiste och det gick snabbt att få boken och servicen var personlig och bra.

Nu återstår det svåra och det är att välja vilken vante jag skall sticka.Inte lätt alls.Men julledigheten kommer att bli extra trevlig när en ny vante är på gång.Mönsterskatten är enorm och visst känner jag igen mönster från svenska ,norska,finska och samiska vantar.De starka färgerna påminner om vantar i Stickat från Norrbotten och i Gotländsk sticksöm finns mönster men då mest i naturfärger.

Tack Monica för hjälpen.

Christmas is on its way

Dear all

I have been doing some embroidery .First of all an angel for a card to Wendy and Jean,finds at xstitchpals on yahoo.I have used DMC-gold ,DMC cotton amd some beads in gold on Aida.Fleur is another lovely lady who was the first lady who sent me a card this season and to her I sent a Christmas tree on Aida

A Christmas ornament I haven't decided what to do with but I hope I can use it to a card for a friend.
From Jean I'v got an angel in cross-stitch and she also sent me another card and a little surprise.More of that another day.tina sent a little bear .These 2 cards are very very beautiful and this was my first swap cards.So happy.

The needlebook in crochet ,pineapple,is something my teacher in textile handicraft showed me and I really want to do something like this.Perhaps I use another type of yarn then DMC perlé which is too soft .

Iwanted to use a pattern of a basket and I counted wrong and I had to change it.I like the result with silkribbon flowers.Sweet one.I think I found a pattern on Kreinik.It's an own version.

Today we have had Santa Lucia, a "queen" coming with the light in these dark days.It's a saint from Syrakusa who is the one we celebrate.The Santa Lucia and the other girls and boys sing so beautiful songs,often christian songs.They come in the morning when it's still dark outside and it's really some minutes of silence and lovely songs and musicThis is about 08.30 in the morning.

Enjoy life and take care of you.

Soon we have Christmas
