Merry Christmas – Gleðileg jól

Merry Christmas to all my blog readers! I have gotten Christmas cards from several of you and would like to thank you for taking the time to send me a card. Unfortunately my funds didn’t allow for me to send out holiday cards this year.

Me and the girls have had a great time together this Christmas. We have eaten a lot, spent time with the family and friends, relaxed, watched movies, played with the new toys etc. It has been great! I have even managed to stitch a little! I am almost done with the Little Women series and also started a cute freebie that I hope to have finished very soon. Now I have to work tomorrow and the day after and then it is back to two days off. Oh so nice! We really need it since we have a lot of work waiting for us in the new year.

Here is a cute picture of my daughters, Karítas and Sumarrós that my friend Aisté printed on canvas and put on a frame and gave me for Christmas. I thought it might bring you a little joy as it did for me 🙂 I hope you have all had a great time this Holiday season and whatever you are celebrating that you got to spend time with the people that you love the most.
