Counting down to Christmas

The winter light is very special around here.
The sun barely rests on the neighbours roof for a few hours before the darkness returns around 3 pm.
Just now the nature is decorated with frost - it is beautiful!

I am about done with all the Christmas gifts and today has been a me-day sewing wise.
I finished block # 6 on Leanne's House. It has been nearly done for a long time. As you see, row 2 are joined now.
The last 3 blocks are pieced and ready for stitchery :-)

Today DD2 and I baked Julemanna - recipe from Wenche. We made a half batch and filled 2 boxes.
We have already nibbled a few - these are really yummy!

A finish, a finish :-)
I have enjoyed this little redwork for about a week. It is so cute.
After Christmas I will make a cushion from it.

So cute, all in red !...

å så søte bamsa da! Flotte stoffer også, det tredje nederste måtte jeg bare kjøpe en meter av her for ett par uker siden.

Bamsene var bare supersøte! Du fikk satt tankene i sving om neste års julegaver, ja... men det er jo godt å være tidlig ute!

You and May are doing such wonderful stitchery projects! I am getting Leanne's Quilters Journey as a BOM - I've received 3 installments already but haven't had a moment to start it!

What a pretty picture of your world with all the frost. I thought it was snow until I read the post.

Skjønner godt at julemannaene forsvinner jeg.... ;)

Gøy å møtes med hver vår blogg.

Men siden jeg har worpress, så blir visst ikke signaturen min koblet til bloggen min.

Beautiful quilt!

Nå har jeg oppdatert profil i blogger, så det er lenke til bloggen min i profilen ihvertfall.

Data er underlig greier. Takk for hyggelig julekort!
Klem! Lene

Hello! I found your blog from a google search and had to stop by to let you know how lovely your quilting is!

I'm not a quilter (yet) but I am trying to teach myself and have started Leanne's House BOM. I'm a bit rubbish at it actually but I'm loving every second of it so far. Seeing how lovely your is, is inspiring me to keep at it. I am soooo impressed by anyone who can quilt and yours are so lovely.

I've bookmarked you so I can come back to admire your fab things.

Thanks for sharing :)
