My Most Favorite Christmas Presents

I hope you’ve had the most wonderful Christmas full of joy and happiness.

Here, in our world, we had it just like that.

On Saturday, me and my boyfriend traveled to my parents’, we all had a lovely dinner, and then we opened our presents. Because here, in a magical land called central Europe, the gifts are unwrapped on Christmas Eve. And Jesus brings them, no Santa Claus. But I am not really able to go into details and explain this all precisely because I’ve never really grasped the logistics of it all.

This year, the presents were especially lovely…

I got this mini weaving loom.

I had not even known I wanted it.

But, man, do I know that now. I’d so wanted it and my Mom seems to be the only person who’d known it all the time. I really wonder how it’s possible… that you don’t know but your mama knows. So sweet!



purple skein of yarn

To make the magic even more perfect, my new mini loom came with some really wonderful yarn.

Like this purple one. Just look at that color!

And this shade of green – wow! Wow! Wow! Love it!



big crochet hooks

And look, I also got these, the biggest crochet hooks I’ve ever owned.

I have a pretty nice collection of hooks, but these sizes were not among them. Again, my Mom knew and have no clue how she had found it out.

My mama is an angel. I’ve always had the inkling but now I know for sure.

And what about you, dear friends? Did you have nice Christmas? And did you get a present that you can call your favorite one?

    Dear Petra,

    It depends on the family tradition, if the “Christkind” or Santa brings the presents. We are living in Frankonia and in Kindergarten my eldest learned everything about the Christkind and it brought the presents to the Kindergarten.

    But here at home, Santa came, ate the Cookies we had made just before and left the presents in exchange (he came back on the first and second day, but this was only because the kids got so much presents from their grandparents, we had to split to all three days).

    Since we stayed at home, it was a very peaceful christmas. 🙂

    Petra, it looks like you had a beautiful Christmas! And yes, isn’t it amazing how our moms seem to always know best? What beautiful yarn!!! I was surprised this year by my uncle…he gave me a gently used Nikon F100 complete with a very nice camera bag. I cried when I opened the box because I never expected such a nice camera. I felt so blessed! May you have a blessed new year, Petra! Much love from your friend in Texas…P.S. I haven’t tried the Slovak recipes yet but I still intend to do so!

    That looks very cool! I need some giant crochet hooks I think, most of mine are pretty average (3-6 size). I’m not sure that I have a favorite gift this year. I got tickets to see Jann Arden (musical artist that I love and met i November), but I think my favorite is my tea thermos (it’s clear, insulated and has a strainer for leaves) from my wonderful man who pays attentions to when I talk about stuff and the giant Jack Skelington (Nightmare Before Christmas) mug my mom got in Disneyland. Can’t wait to see what kind of wonderful things you creative with your new loom!

    What wonderful gifts you received!

    I was curious if the loom was handmade or if you could refer us to a company or website that sold them. It looks like a great size and I love the fact that it’s wooden and not plastic!
