Today is the first Advent Sunday. I will explain this for those of you unfamiliar with some of our European traditions.
The 4 Sundays before Christmas - which is on the evening of December 24th in Germany "Heilig Abend" - we usually have an Advent Wreath (Adventskranz) with four candles. Each Sunday an additional candle will be lit.
Normally we don`t have any Christmas decoration at home, as we are both not very fond of Christmas. But this year I got this wreath as a present from a colleague (Elfenzaubereien) on Dawanda.
She sells felted products, but she also does floristics. She came up with the idea of making a Meerkat wreath, so I provided the brown felt meerkat-pups which she used for the wreath.
The crocheted meerkat on the picture is also from someone (womajaka) on Dawanda. She is a crochet expert and I asked her to have this meerkat made for us after the pattern by Roman Sock.
It is still unnamed, but you can see that it`s already found a friend in our mob.
