Quilting in miniature - Mini-quilting

Two small bed quilts
1:12 and
1:6 in size.
I think they turned out really cute.

The backing on the big one is my father-in-laws (new) handkerchiefs and
the backing on the small one is from my sons pyjamas :)



Kitchen and Pantry cupboard made


All for a fun project in the making ;).

Cleaning the RL cupboards
I had to admire my collection of Moomin Seasonal mugs. Sweet'n cheerful for warm Winter drinks. I have collected for some years now.

Miniquilting og te har vært på plakaten over helga.
Nakke og skuldre må betale dyrt nå, så nå blir det "Steinhimmelen" med Karin Brunk Holmquist og te i koselige kopper kommende uke. Veldig glad i mummisesongkoppene mine. 

Ønsker alle en skjønn uke :)

Wish you all a good week :)

Winter beauty - Vintervakkert

Jenny
Morning walk

Washing line in Winter

Still
Stillhet



Keeping warm
Pus trives best ved Vedovnen

Bleke vinterkinn nyter litt solskinn



Someone passed by here last night under a starry sky...
perhaps a fox?

Evenings by the log fire.
Tea and hexagon quilt
in progress.

Winter -Vinter

Winter
in all it's beauty
- 22 C
Clear blue skies
Sparkling snow
Skiing in the forest.
Hare and fox tracks.
So still.



A light meal
over an open fire.
Warm drinks.



Sunset nearing
It will be a starry night
a cold one
a beautiful one.

Day closing
Sky on fire.
Warm wood fire and candles lit
indoors.
Knitting out
tea ready.
Three tired boys 
warm and snug in their beds.

Wish you all a good week ahead.
Hope for the best
and make the best out of what you get.

Blessings, 
Pam xx

Winter, cold winds from Siberia and homemade soup - Vinter, kuldegrader og hjemmelaget suppe

Winter:
Cold
Still
and beautiful
Rabbit Sindi's House
Come evening a warm red glow shines from her window, 
inside the sweet little old lady is warm and snug.

The lake is frozen over after a long cold period.
They say it is the Winds of Siberia
sweeping over us
making us wrap up warm
surrounding us with
Great beauty

Loving our walks
even more than usual.

Warm homemade Turkey soup,
broth and meat frozen from the Christmas dinner.
Delicious!
More snow on the way tonight and tomorrow:
More warm meals
and rosy cheeks.
Warm wood fires
candles lit
knitting.


Blessings,
Pam xx

Ny vri på Julekurvene - Christmas tree baskets


In Norway we hang little paper baskets on the Christmas tree. "JULEKURVER". They can be filled with Sweets or bisquits. This year I thought I would make them a little differently and   brighten them up with florals and decorations.


I år har jeg "pimpet" julekurvene.
Fikk helt dilla på å lage disse. 

Flere Tilda dukker våkner til live. En husengel "Néhani" ( den som skinner ) 
og "Seaside girl".
Har brukt grunnmønsteret og kost meg med å pønske ut resten. Disse to er gitt bort, savner "jentene mine" de får sin egen personlighet :).


More Tilda girls have come to life. Love planning each new personality.
House Angel "Néhani" above and "Seaside girl" below. These two have gone to new homes, 
quite sad to see them go, my girls :)



Flere Bursdags- og Julekort


Birthday cards
and Christmas cards





Wishing you all a great weekend.
Cherish the small pleasures.

God 3. Adventshelg dere.
Husk å ta vare på det gode i øyeblikket.
