And then came Nissen

Gjesåsberg nissen (the santa from the mountan nearby) came by yesterday. The children and the grownups as well was so happy to see him. He was so quiet, did not say so much, but he left a big pile of christmasgifts for all of us.

We spendt almost 4 hours opening all the gifts.

And this is how it looks after all the unwrapping.


I must have been a nice girl this year because Santa brought a lot of quilty presents for me + a lot of other not quilty presents.
Lise have knitted the mittens for me, Anne Ida have made that little blue sewingpurse, and Hanne has stitched the little snowman. I also received tea, patterns, liqueur from other quilt friends.
My DD and DS had bought me some new quiltbooks. One was on my wishlist, but the other one was totally new to me so I was so surprised by that one. And I got the two christmas cd's and the Mamma Mia dvd I had on my wish list + a lot of dvd movies to watch.

Stina had made the little cute lavender pillow for me. Nancy had made two lovely hearts, a bag to keep my tea lights in and a new tablemat. And look what's laying on the blue towel together with the lavendersoap (that smells so lovely).......my own abyquilt thimble.......

Look, isn't it so cute. One of a kind and it is mine. Laila's mother have handpainted this one for me.

Another fun present is this one. When Bjørg and I was preparing the next block on Joy Of Life BOM we joked about having bias on our wish list for christmas. Because there is a lot of bias on these BOM and we both hate to make them. So Santa brought me 3 long stripes of bias.

And this is some other wonderful things that has dropped in my mailbox these last days before christmas. I appriciate so much to recive these little goodies from friends.
Thank you all of you.


Now I am enjoying a quiet moment on Christmas Day. My new christmas CD of Peter Jøback is in the background. I am reading blogs and mails. The candles are lit. (got this wonderful candleholder from my DD). And I am just enjoying som quality time. And now I will find my stitchery or the next Joy of Life block and start sewing.
Enjoy your Christmas time.


Saying for today:

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world,
and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful
