Christmas traditions

Lasr week my mother-in-law helped me to start my Christmas traditions. We made "lefse". It is an old traditison bred almost like thin wafer crispbred ,but soft. Almost like fabric and made of potato and flour. She starts with a piece with the size of an apple .....
The she rolls it out to a big circle....
And lift it over to the griddle. Now I have to do my work... Brush of redundant flour and turn it and bake it on both sides.Then move it to a table to get cold under a baking cloth...
At last we had 52 "lefser" waiting for Christmas breakfast and dinners... We had to taste it home, and it was realy great... Yummy ;-)
I have started to make Christmas gifts - I can't show yet. But I have manage to do some small thing for myself. I have made a little Christmas quilt after Gail Pans pattern, Rolly Polly Santa.
And this little cat. She are a little needlebook.I love to make small and fun Needlebooks and Pincushions . Now I have started to look in all my old Japanese books for new ideas... and I have found a lot...
My collection of thimbles have grown lately... From my friend Lisbeth I got this beauty with a butterfly on. She has been on hollyday in the Canary islands ( I belive....) Thank you Lisbeth ;-)
I also got this great thimbles...The one in front I got from a lady in Holland.It is from Katwijk aan Zee. Thank you. It is great ;-)
The last three I got when Nemo and her botfriend got home from a trip to London. - the last trip for a while ? ? ;-) - The himbles are ; the Queen ,Harry and William- The royal Prinses and the last shows diferent well known places in London. Thank you both. ;-)
Now I'm off to make Christmas gifts and the last for my SSCS gift.
Hope to have more to show you soon.
Have a great day and take care.

Nammmmm......kjente nesten lukta av lefsebaksten deres. Så nå blir det nok jul i heimen hos deg. Og mange som får flotta hemlaga gaver er jeg også sikker på at det er :-D
