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

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

Santa's sleigh has visited

Santa's sleigh stopped by yesterday
and delivered this parcel from Paris

it was really exciting, and i am rally glad that i got to open one of my parcels
otherwise the suspense would have been murder

my ornaments are 
Two gorgeous little Norwegian knitted Christmas baubles

i am so thrilled, one of my closest friends in Australia is Norwegian and over the last few years
she has knitted me several little Norwegian stockings and
now i have two baubles too...
my tree will have a very Norwegian theme this year

they are so gorgeous and so much work thank you so much

i hope you and your family have a wonderful
and that Santa's sleigh is flying towards Paris with a gift for you soon
