A little tree has appeared…it must be December!
Graziella and Abigail are helping to open the Crafty advent calendar! A very kind friend organised this every year – 24 people each make 24 crafty gifts to exchange, and starting on December First, we open one a day! Our first gift was a jar of Rye Sourdough starter…we’ll have to see if Mormor and Jane can do something with it in the kitchen! We do love rye bread!
Today they opened #2, and found some sweet treats that will be nice with a cup of tea, and a lovely poem.
And finally the human has finished the Hitty sleeping bag…I don’t think we’ll make a second slipper/bed sock, it isn’t a shape that I like (though it is very cosy and warm)…
…it is a perfect size for two little Hittys, warm, cosy, and just in time for the cold winter storm which is on the way. The Hittys are excited to have their very own sleeping bag that I am not giving away to anybody!
Happy December – we hope you are warmed by thoughtful friends, treats and bright stars.
So glad to see your post and that there is activity in the QH household. Lovely gifts, aren’t they? And such a splendid “sleeping bag”. I trust whoever gets to sleep in it has colorful, pleasant dreams.
Thanks! We have been a bit quiet lately in the Hitty Cupboard, possibly related to being busy in the human household! I think Graziella and Abigail have claimed the “sleeping bag”, unless of course the Hitty cats get into it first!
Such a sweet, gentle, and inviting introduction to December!
Thanks! December has been cold and stormy so far, we are glad for the antidote of spending time in the gentle and sweet Hitty Cupboard!
Such wonderful advent gifts! And, OF COURSE the girls should keep their sleeping bag. Santa will find it easy to find the end of their bed and where to fill their stockings. Added to that, with rising household costs, they, like the rest of us, need non-fuel related ways of keeping warm at night.
Indeed yes – the cosy slipper/sleeping bag is perfect for chilly Hittys – and they are so glad that I am not sending it away! Quite right about Santa finding it easy to fill their stockings too – bonus!
This particular Hitty fan is warmed by the start of summer! For us, Christmas will be a dime for cool clothes, shady hats and scurrying from one air-conditioned spot to another. A sheet and maybe a patchwork quilt on the bed will be quite enough… I hope the Hittys enjoy their baking and that there is something nice in the pantry to put on the sourdough rye bread. For me, there’s nothing to beat butter and komijnekaas.
We hope you don’t get overheated reading about our attempts to keep warm! The cumin cheese is one of our very favourites – I will see if Gracia has any in her shop – if not I will slice a bit of the one in our fridge, and give a bit to the Hittys for their lunch!
I am salivating slightly at the remembered flavour…
What a beautiful wishes, you are so nice. December fascinated in this post, I loved the colours, stories, and photographs… Every detail hits me. Especially the green ribbon in the fisrt one… You are an artist dear Hitty Lady, I wish you the same to you and to All your family, Much Love, nia
Thank you so much Nia, I love taking photos of my “little ones’, and they keep meopen to new perspectives!
By the way I forgot to say, these faces, these beautiful looking and smiling faces how beautiful, I feel as if they are real… But this is true in one way, because I see your smiling face and beautiful heart there… Thank you dear Hitty Lady, Love, nia
You are so lovely and kind too, thank you again, Nia.
such sweet, warm thoughts. season greetings to all the Hitty household from up the hill.
Thank you so much – I hope your repaired Heater and the lovely teas are keeping you warm “up the hill”.
Thank you so much!
the sleeping bag is just perfect for the girls (and the cats!). Love their outfits and the fun advent suprises.
The cats certainly enjoy the wooly sleeping bag – they prefer it pre-warmed by the Hittys!
