May Britt and myself have learned over the last few days that the decorated baking covers seems to be mostly a Scandinavian tradition and that it is more common to use a regular tea towel in other parts of Europe and in other parts the world.
The more a reason to enter the giveaway! :-)
But - in order for you to do so we have to change the rules a bit, to fit reality:
1. You have to have a blog AND you have to be reachable by mail.
2. Tell us what you like the best to bake - bread or cakes
3. Make a blog post about baking if you will - it will make it fun for us to visit your blog
The deadline for the entries will still be Wednesday at 6 pm ( noon New York time)
The rhyme on the baking cover goes:
Bake bake kake
Rulle rulle bolle
Ringle ringle kringle
og puff inn i ovnen
Translated to English (not included in the pattern):
Bake bake cake
Roll roll bun
Twist twist pretzel
and in the oven it goes
My girls learned this rhyme in kindergarten, complete with arm movements, and it is so fun to stitch - I aim at finishing the stitchery today.
It is not unlikely I will make more than one of these baking covers in a while :-)
Visit May Britt's blog to see the stitchery for the pattern in the pattern giveaway finished.
Our friend Bente finished this baking cover this weekend - isn't it cute?
I found this lovely free stitchery pattern here - I bet she will look cute on a baking cover too :-)
