Relaxing Christmas days

We had a wonderful Christmas Eve celebrating with my brother and his family. Always nice to be together. With 13 people together you can guess there was a load of presents to open, and it was so fun watching the children unwrapping theirs.

I got a lot of wonderful presents and here you can see the quilty ones.  Calendars, quiltbooks, a new pattern my friend Bjørg have designed, some fabric and gift card at a quilt shop.

I wonder when we get some quilt wine??  Take a look at the winebootle.  It is the Christmas wine from Arne and Carlos, the boys who started knitting Christmas balls. I had no idea they had their own wine, and I love the lable of this bottle.  I got one beautiful Christmas ball from my friend Elisabeth.

The Christmas days have been spent playing games.  Every year I buy a new brick game for the family to play.  This year we played Ticket to Ride Europe.  It was so fun and I know this will be one of my favorite games.  I also bought another one, but that one is not opened yet.

Relaxing days with watching movies, doing applique on my basket blocks.  The countdown have started.  112 finished, 14 to be done.  I had big plans today working in my sewingroom, but all I have done is choosing fabrics for the center block of the basket quilt.

And as I did not have any finish in OPAM november, I have to have at least one finish in december.  So my plan is to spend a lot of time in the sewingroom the next two days.

I signed up for Chookyblue’s SSCS this year too.  But I am still waiting for my present to arrive.  Maybe Santa has forgotten my adress, or it has been delayed in the customs. So if my SSCS reads my blog, this is why I have not mailed a thank you.  Looking forward to Chooky’s show and tell, I have visited some blogs and you have got wonderful presents from your SSCS.

Saying for today:

There is nothing better than great gifts, wine and family quality time.

I agree with Tracee, nothing better than a great time with family and friends, with wonderful gifts.

Sounds like you had a very happy Christmas, and received lots of lovely gifts. I like the wall hanging, so appropriate for so many of us bloggers and quilters. Good luck finishing off your baskets, I think you will miss them when you're done. And I hope Santa delivers soon.

Sounds like an excellent holiday May Britt. We had a lovely one which will spill over until New Years day when we have another family gathering since my daughter and her family were in new York visiting the other side of the family for the holiday this year. Happy New Year!
