An angel is here...

Well... we've reached December already. And I haven't bought any Christmas presents yet.... I've made some though.... but this angel is not one of them.... can't show what I've made for presents before Christmas, can I?
This angel is completely my own design... well, maybe not completely since I've used a pattern from a Tilda book for the wings (I just love the shape of the Tilda angel's wings). This is the only one I've made of these so far, but I'm sure there will be many more.
I had so much fun designing and making her. She has a small bag of rice in the bottom of her skirt to help her stand better. And her arms have no stuffing in them at all...
This is where she's gonna live... In my window sill. I haven't decided if she's just for Christmas or a whole year round angel....
The green thing in front of my window is the shawl I've been knitting on since.... uhh... march? It's almost finished now... just a few more rows to go (I think). I'll write a bit more about it when it is finished... it could be a while though....

Herlig engel! Jeg har virkelig sansen for dem, men det har du vel skjønt allerede.

Da vi kjørte hjemmefra (og opp til Aberdeen) i går var det -8C!! Det er KALDT her. Du hadde nok fått bruk for votter. Her er det "bare" -3, men du vet, en er ikke vant til sånt.

Hei og takk for hyggelig komentar i bloggen min, i dag. Jammen har du mye fint i din egen blogg! Disse englene dine for eksempel er jo bare helt skjønne. Jeg er veldig glad i engler, og dine engler er helt etter min smak :-)

Ha ei fin helg.
