    Nancia, things are cold in Denmark! I haven't gotten to hold him yet. Grandmother was here until his bedtime the day we arrived, then I started with a cold. We went shopping yesterday, then I got much worse and so I was in bed all day today except for meals and a shower, so I woulnd't give it to anyone. It's moved from my sinuses to my ears and throat already now. I'm on 3 different medicines over the counter, plus 2 different cough drops.

    But, 1 of the stops on the shopping trip was a local fabric shop. I found 1000 meter spool of thread for $4 that I was told is a good brand, so I got 3 of them. Fabric is very expensive here though (solids on the remnants rack were about $12/meter, where I can get them at Hobby Lobby for about $8/yard). I got 4 remnants (each at least 30% off) and 3 spools of thread for $35-40. My boyfriend's sister-in-law says she will keep a look out for me in that store though, and will pick up some good deals as she sees them.

    I was interested to see that the store did not carry Guterman thread, but did carry Guterman notions such as snaps, hook/eye closures, etc. Lots of small skeins of yarn and knitting supplies, but not crochet. Pillow forms, but no quilt batting. Also, much of the fabric in this shop was heavier weight, not quilting cotton, or t-shirt materials. This could be because it's winter now and the temperatures will stay around freezing until spring. The days are so short right now. Daylight around 9am and pitch black darkness before 5pm. I can't imagine living here full time in the winter. In summer though, it's still daylight at 10pm, which isn't so bad.

    Well, it's 2:20am here and I think I've got my couching under control for a bit, so I'm headed back to bed. Tomorrow is the Christmas feast and grandma will be back for most of the day. I'll be back on the 25th or 26th to check in again.

    Merry Christmas~!

    Nancia, I'm glad you're feeling better. Today is the first day in nearly 2 weeks that I've felt like doing much of anything. My daughter has been sick everybit of two weeks and still can't shake the stuff. Most of hers is a head thing now. BUT! It could all be worse and so thankful it's not! Have a wonderful Christmas to you and everyone here!!

    momma k-- i hope you are at the end of it and are feeling better daily. i'm still tempted to blame the shingles shot as my arm still has a lump, and is down to pink (not red), and itches. a good local reaction and perhaps a lowered resistance. i'm just sorry anyone has to be sick for the holidays, or at all, for that matter! but i'm with you on wishing all the happiest, merry christmas, and may we each have a stunningly good new year!!!

    do me.

    It is isnt it ? I see pink and red and gingerbread men with roosters beaches and cats .. ah just like home! I recall distinctly being yound and everything had to be matchy matchy. Now its all about eccletic and heck if you change your happy spot you can whip in a few new colors items and well there you are again. I am thinking maybe some little vintage curtains for my kitchen too! Merry Christmas everyone. Thanks for a wonderful year spent playing with me here. I love this board. It is.. my happy spot.
