At the museum

Today my friend Irene and I went to the museum. They were supposed to have a guided tour around the museum telling about old christmas traditions, but the guide was sick. Instead we took a tour with the horse and hay wagon. They could not use the sledge because there is still no snow. We crawled up in the wagon and got a tour around the museum. A little christmas feeling because the horse had bells on.
In one of the old houses they were baking flatbrød and lefse ( I do not know if there is a english word for it) I have baked lefse like this and a found a recepy in english here if you want to bake it too. Now we use to bake it on the takke (norwegian word, do not know the english)
But long time ago they used to bake it here in the fireplace.
In the shop at the museum I found this cute little mouse, and she had to come home with me.
And now she is sitting outside in a decoration on my porch.
Have I done any quilting today. Yes, I have made four new hearts that's ready for binding. I have also made some ....... SCHHhhhhhh..... secret things that I can't show on my blog until after christmas :)

Thanks for the pictures May. Looks like fun! The little mouse is very cute. Were there lots of different straw animals to choose from?

Oh, so much fun, May!

Your little mouse looks wonderful - he's quite cute (wait it's a she!)

I know lefse! I grew up in Minnesota where there are a lot of Norwegians. I haven't had lefse in a long time. The mouse is adorable.

Beautiful fabrics in those hearts! Love that little mouse, too!

I like the mousie best too! I wonder if he'd become a cat toy at my house? I've had flatbread, but never lefse. Going off to look at the recipe now. :)

Oh, this looks like a great museum adventure. I love to visit places like this, where things are done in the old way and one can see how it was - and how much easier life is now! They hay ride looks like the perfect way to go from place to place, too.

What a great way to get with Christmas spirit! We have such a place near my home - where some of Mel Gibson's Patriot was shot - Historic Brattonsville, where they have a Candlelight Christmas tour. I haven't been in a long time. http://www.chmuseums.org/ourmuseums/hb/index.htm

Your hearts are very pretty!!

Flotte bilder May Britt.
Flott også artikkelen din i Norsk Quilteblad. *rørt*. Den gir hvertfall meg inspirasjon til å fortsette å blogge på to språk.
Ha en fortsatt fin uke.

What a fun day you had with your friend - pity about the snow. Here in Canada we're having 10ºC weather and still NO SNOW either.

Cute little mouse - it would have gone home with me too.

Gerry said...
