3rd Sunday in Advent

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

(the english translation is in todays saying)


Yesterday I had the girls from my quilt group Trådsnellene (the spools) visiting for a Christmas table. My kitchen is small, but we all had a lovely time with good food.

And of course everyone had brought with them some sewing to do. Chatting and sewing is a must on our meetings. Thank you girls for a lovely evening together.

Today I have done a lot of Christmas preparations (cleaning up and throwing away a lot of stuff) in my kitchen cupboards and in the big shelf in my livingroom. And when I had finished that, my prize was to go into my sewingroom and stay there for a while. Working on 3 new tablerunners.

I have finished a lot of projects the last weeks.

Two table runners.

A Christmas table runner. I actually have made two of this pattern, but one is already given away to my DD.

And three toilet purses.

I am catching a bad cold right now. Sneezing, headace and a sore throat. Hope it will go away real soon. Do not have time for this right now.

Saying for today:

We light three candles tonight
For longing, hope and joy.
They stands there shining by themselves
and we who present are
We light three candles tonight
for longing, hope and joy
