Quilters Christmas Party part 3

When we came back to Bente's house the electricity was on again and we could get to work :-)
The plan for the day was to make care quilts.

In the evening we enjoyed a delicious traditional Christmas meal - ribs of pork cooked in the oven, ribs of sheep steamed and then roasted in the oven, good potatoes, cauliflower and broccoli, mashed cabbage root (a traditional Nordic vegetable), sauerkraut and good sauce.

Since this traditional dish is served only around Christmas we all ate to much - it was so good :-))

A  very good time were had by all !!
