This was going to be the big baking for Christmas weekend, and while waiting for Hanne to arrive I looked through my Christmas pattern. I found this kit I bought several years ago, and think I will start on this one now. Perhaps I have a new cushion for Christmas. Anyway it is fun sewing on something Chrismassy in the Advent time.
After a cup of coffe we started to bake our Christmas cookies. This is the third year we are baking together and it has become a great tradition.
Hanne making caramelized almonds. Remember my mother making this when I was a little girl. Bring back good memories and they tastes soooo good.
And then some sewing, relaxing and a glass of red wine. Working on my Aunt Sarahs quilt. I’ve finished all the applique on the center piece and are almost half done with the hexagons.
Sunday morning and second sunday in Advent. Opening our advent calendar gifts.
Then Hanne gave me a challenge. Some years ago I ordered a BOM from Lappemakeriet. Last time I visited Hanne I commented that her finished BOM was so beautiful. And now she wanted me to pull out this WISP (Work In Slow Project) to see how much there was left to do on it.
19 of 20 blocks finished. Why did I put it away. Going to give this some focus now, because Hanne challenged me to have the top finished in a month. So I have until the middle of January to finish at least the top on this quilt.
I gave my leftover fabrics to a friend and she gave me her leftovers. Because she had chosen this BOM in some other colours. I have made 8 of the 20 blocks. Will continue sewing on these too.
I got this cute litte birdie pincushion in Shipshewana. Love it so much and now it is my companion when I am sewing.
Started to piece together the last block on the BOM. It looks like Rusken is not too happy about me sewing all the time.
Saying for today:
