Merry Christmas!

    Τι όμορφη χριστουγεννιάτικη διάθεση! Δεν μπορώ καν να φανταστώ τον κόπο που έκανες να τα κεντήσεις όλα αυτά…! Άξιζε όμως γιατί ειναι καταπληκτικά! Μπράβο πραγματικά!

      Ευχαριστώ. Τη φούστα την είχα φτιάξει πέρυσι, τώρα έκανα μόνο το πάνω….Σήμερα το πρωί συναντηθήκαμε με τη Liliv και τη Tzai για καφέ και βόλτα στα υφασματάδικα. Περάσαμε πολύ ωραία, κρίμα που δεν είσαι κι εσύ εδώ….Σου εύχομαι καλές γιορτές!

    Nice outfit, and great tree. My daughter would love all the penguins. We had a freak snow fall last night, it was so pretty, until it turned to sleet and melted most of it. Have a great Christmas.

    As usual I love your ideas. Love the embroidery and I’ve always liked that skirt pattern. Doesn’t snow here either. Merry Christmas

    Έβαλες πάλι την πινελιά σου και μετέτρεψες μια απλή φουστα σε έργο τέχνης!
