Your πŸŽ…πŸΌ Advent πŸ•― Calendar πŸŽ„ ~ Day 24

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• Here we are…at the last day and door of the Advent Calendar. I had so much fun peeking behind each door every morning, and hope you enjoyed it too! 😍

Today I wanna share with you a lovely Christmas song. It’s ‘Silent Night’, sung by Heintje.

Ever since I was a little girl, this song, in this version, is a part of my Christmas Eve. My parents played it as we kids walked into the living room to find the trimmed tree, and the presents. 😊 And I and my family carry this tradition forth to this day.

Fun fact ~ when I was 7, 8 years old I was very serious about wanting to marry him. πŸ˜† Needless to say…that didn’t happen.

Can you blame me though? πŸ˜‰

So…without further ado – here is Stille Nacht ✨

He does sing it in german. But he does have -excuse me for getting sappy- the voice of an angel. So I hope you enjoy it as much as I do 😍

Have a wonderful, joyful, peaceful Christmas πŸ’•

Your πŸŽ…πŸΌ Advent πŸ•― Calendar πŸŽ„ ~ Day 23

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Wow, I can’t believe it’s the 23rd 😳 Where has this month gone?

Aaaand I still don’t have all the gifts 😣 So a trip to the mall is imminent…that should be fun!

I hope Santa is more prepared than I am πŸ˜‰

Well, ready or not, tomorrow he’ll be on his way

Will you be tracking his journey?

Did you know that at ‘Zillow.com’ you can take a look at Santa’s House and the Elf Village ?

With 3D view and lots of photos 😍 It’s really cute…you should take a peek when you have a free minute.

Oh…and at the bottom of the ‘listing’ is a link to the NORAD Santa Tracker πŸ˜ƒ

Have a wonderful day πŸ’•

I’m off to the stores 😬 Wish me luck…please!

A Few (handmade) Last-Minute Gifts πŸŽ

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Are you still frantically looking for another gift idea? Wanna make something? 😁

I found a few lovely things that can be made in just a few short hours.

How about a warm & cozy

1.) Infinity Scarf

I made this one in appr. 3 hours (and I’m not super fast 😜)

You need

4 skeins of a super bulky yarn (#6) – I used ‘Lionbrand Hometown USA’*

1 crochet hook L (8mm)

Special StitchV-st = (Dc, ch1, Dc) in indicated st or space

Setup Row: Ch 22, V-stitch in 5th ch from hook, *skip 2 ch, 3 dc in next ch; repeat from * to last 2 ch, skip 1 ch, dc in last ch. Turn

Pattern row: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), *V-st in second dc of first 3-dc group, 3 dc in ch-1 space of next V-Stitch; rep from * to end, Dc in 2nd ch from turning chain. Turn.

Repeat pattern row until your scarf is (at least) 57″

Sew the short ends together, and weave in the ends (Sorry πŸ˜‰)

When making an Infinity Scarf I always twist the scarf once –

I think that gives it a nice ‘knotted’ effect when worn. 😊

2.) A Headband

This adjustable Headband really only takes about 2 hours.

It fits any size head, because it ties in the back 😊

You can find the pattern here

3.) Elizabeth Stitch Boot Cuffs

I found these gorgeous boot cuffs on Pinterest – and the link actually led somewhere 😜

It brought me here – to Dabbles and Babbles – a website full of wonderful ideas πŸ˜ƒ

Here are the boot cuffs

A little hint – when you click on the link, one of the first things you see is an offer to buy an ‘ad free’ version of the pattern. If you keep scrolling you’ll get to the pattern though – with a few ads here and there πŸ˜‰

I hope this was/is of some help. If you need more ideas, please stop by again tomorrow… I have a few more things to show you. 😁

Until then πŸ’•

Awwww πŸ˜ƒ

Have a wonderful, fabulous, lovely day! πŸ’•
