A very Norwegian Christmas

Okay there is no snow in the Hunter Valley.....
...... might as well be as it  is cold and miserable

but inside my place the festive season has taken hold  and the house feels warm and inviting
i have hung and placed all the projects i have made for Christmas over the years
there is now 3 quilts, 4 stockings ( i need to make one for Cooper)
a banner, Christmas tree skirt and countless ornaments

this year however my tree has a distinct Norwegian feeling


the beautiful balls made just for me by 







These gorgeous mittens were made by my wonderful friend
Synnove

i might need to learn how to knit some little Norwegian stockings to make up the set



here's hoping that the silly season
has got you running around like a mad chook

and you have time to sit and stitch

hope your hands are working on something that you love
