Christmas around the corner.....

As it is close to Christmas,I have put up some of my " old" Christmas wallquilts.
This are a beautifull one,made by Red Brolly herself. Lucky me won it some years ago. 
As I have told before I got a gift from Nemo every sunday in advent. This box and kit 
are from the third sunday.I desided to do these small stitcheries at once,and to make somthing
from them..
......and here they are,new Christmas costers. ( I belive the pattern are made by  Nothern Quilts) 
On the last sunday of advent I got these great items...another box and Christmas tree decorations from Liberty and Starnucks.Thank you ,Nemo... next year too ?... ;-)
I have manage to do some small items for me ,not just making gifts
for mot friends and family. 
Two small tablerunnere and a little knitting bag. Both are from the Norwegian magazine
Quiltemagasinet. They where fun and easy to do. So now I look forward to the next nr.
of the magazine...
I play with yarn as well as fabrics ( most of the time with fabrics) Knitting 
are more easy to bring with me and I love to try new pattern.The Christmas mittern
are a mystery from a Facebook book page. 
And the yarn dyeing made by me :-) Realy fun to do. I use food coloring. 
Now I have to find a great pattern to knitt....
There has been some beautifull days before Christmas where I live. 
It is almost like live in a Christmas card. 
I hope you all will have a great Christmas - with a lot of quilting and knitting. 
God jul :-)
