Let it snow!

(Well, maybe not today, but after the 17th when I will be done with my exams for this year.)
I sent out two swap packages on Monday, one to the US and one to Italy. I hope the one to Italy will reach my pal within this week and I hope my US package will make the deadline which is 12/31. The woman at the post office couldn't tell me how long it will take. I will check on the internet, but just to make sure something will reach my pal in the US on time I'm also sending out a letter with these two coasters and a little knitting related surprise.
I bought the mistletoe trim just a week ago when I saw it in a store and just had to have it, even though it was kind of very expensive. I bought only one metre of it, not knowing what I wanted to do with it until I came across some coasters in one of my Japanese magazines. Could it be put to any better use? I don't think so. Using the trim this way means I only need a tiny piece of it for each coaster. Now I think there's enough of it left for quite a few more...
Btw: See my little piggy? So I put up some decoration here too now.

I have really enjoyed looking at your sewing projects, they are fab!

I used to sew a lot as a child but have not got back into it yet - I bought a sewing machine and I have loads of fabric but somehow I am nervous about picking it up again!! Perhaps it should be one of my New Year Resolutions for 2008!

By the way. I think I have visited your hometown! About 12 years ago when I was part of a youth theatre group exchange - Is there a nightclub in the woods called the Night Owl or the Barn Owl and a pub in the centre called the KoutureHaus?!!

Hi Nicole,
it is all so pretty. I love your stuff and the ribbon is absolutely worth it (Hanna told me the price...)
Schoene Adventszeit!
