I've been playing with the embroidery unit I got for Christmas. I find it difficult to understand the manual, which of course, is written in English and German. So far, I understand there are a lot of things I don't understand........I do wish manuals had to be written in at least one of the Scandinavian languages.
Anyway, the box measures 5" x 5" x 5", just big enough for a small embroidery hoop and some stitcheries. The bag is just big enough to carry my coffee mug to the next meeting in the local quilt guild.

The dresses are heavily embellished, and the ladies also put on some jewellery.
The brunette says she has "a bad hair day", and I must agree, hopefully the hairdresser has a good idea on Monday.....

The house is a give-away-bag for that special bottle of wine. Kari Renolen made the pattern called "Vinhus" (Wine-house)

As a very old man, he used to tell us a story from one of his bicycle-races. He got a penalty because he was cycling so fast on the countryside-roads that the cattle was frightened. ...

'Twas the week after Christmas, and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste
At the holiday parties had gone to my waist.
When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).
I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,
The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."
As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt
I said to myself, as I only can
"You can't spend a winter disguised as a man!"
So away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip
Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
"Till all the additional ounces have vanished.
I won' t have a cookie - not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.
I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.
I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore
But isn't that what January is for?
Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!
