2nd sunday in advent

Så tenner vi to lys i kveld,
to lys for håp og glede
De står og skinner for seg selv
og oss som er tilstede
Så tenner vi to lys i kveld,
to lys for håp og glede

(the english version is in my saying for today)

And the best with these sunday mornings is that I have three advent packages to open. It is so fun and I know they have spent as much time as me to put these packages together. It is a great tradition we have together.

And this is what I found in my packages today. From Nancy a lovely stitchery of a snowlady (that's why I had to take the photo out in the snow). From Hanne Christmas tissue and a quilt hanger, and from Bente some lovely laces (I know exactly what to make of these, but I think she is challenging me a bit, she knows about me and the colour blue, but in fact I start to love this blue/grey colour). Thank you girls, you are the best :)

Now I am heading to my sewing room again. Got a lot done yesterday, and so I hope today too:)
Guess I'm not the only one spending time in the sewing room these days.

Saying for today:

We light two candles tonight
two candles for hope and joy
They stands there shining by themselves
and we who present are
Tonight we light two candles
we light it for hope and joy.

Enjoy your Advent Sunday :-)
I am heading for the sewing corner now.

Du har helt rett, jeg utfordrer deg litt i den blå verden :) Jeg er så glad for denne tradisjonen vi nå har og at jeg får være med uten å ha blog. Både når det gjelder kalender og utfordringer. Jeg husket mine pakker, og har kost meg med de på sengen i dag. Sykepleierne lurer litt, men syntes vi er heldige som gleder hverandre på denne måten.
God klem fra Bente

Hey May Britt! Your advent candles are lovely, as are the verses you're sharing with those of us who don't have this tradition. Hope and Joy are lovely things to light a candle for! :0) And lovely gifts to enjoy from good friends ... what more could you want to celebrate! :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS
