More Christmas and December sewing

 "The stocking were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there." excerpt from The Night Before Christmas.

Now that the stocking are finished with all 9 names embroidered on the cuffs, they adorn the mantel waiting for them to be...
as my grandson says, "fill them up!"
Other fun Christmas crafting has been making Scandinavian woven hearts with my daughter. We strung them on ribbon to make a garland.
We made 4 different designs!
Here we started to line them up to see how big the garland would be. We finally strung them onto ribbon leaving extra ribbon so they can be adjusted in length. 
I forgot to snap a picture of the final garland.
These are a gift to my youngest daughter. 
I also made this cute little gnome (or Christmas nisse) using a sock and a cotton mop head! A wooden bead became his nose.

It is starting to look a lot like Christmas here! 
Our Norwegian Christmas tree with flags and wooden beads!

I love seeing my grandson in our Christmas tree!
Another vignette embracing our Norwegian heritage is my gnome collection! I call them my red hats!
I hope decorating for the holidays bring you joy...much needed during this crazy year!
One last note, I finished the December step for the Morewood Mystery Quilt. I'm all caught up until 2021!
Can wait until we start putting this all together!

  1. Hi Dawn! Thanks so much for taking us on a journey through your Christmas decorations. I love the gnomes, especially your red hats! I'll bet your grandson loves to see himself on your tree. Yippee for being all caught up on the QAL. No need to stress over that. ~smile~ Roseanne
