Slowing down...


The last weeks before Christmas tend to be rather hectic. There are the last pressies to be bought, cakes and cookies to be baked, Christmas lunches and dinner parties to attend to... and so forth. All of it rather fun, really.


So this little blog of mine has been rather neglected of late, as there has just not been enough time (nor daylight hours for photographing!) to keep it up. But now I have started to slow down.


As most of the are chores done, I can spend the (dark!) evenings stitching. The blue and white quilt is growing, slowly but surely. Luckily I am not in a hurry.


Are all your Christmas preparations done? Are you able to start slowing down and enjoying the holiday season..?

Vilken underbar quilt Mia!!!
Här har vi fortfarande en del saker kvar att fixa....några julklappar kvar, kanske lite julgodis eller bakning och nåt besök......börjar kännas lite hektiskt....men men....det blir ju jul även om vi inte hinner precis allt vi tänkt göra.....:)
Jag njuter iallafall och den rätta stämningen börjar infinna sig:)
Ha en bra och (någorlunda) stressfri vecka!

After today things will slow down a little. It gets to the point where what is done is done, and the rest, well, doesn't really matter. I love your blue and white palette. So clean and beautiful, winter and summer.

Merry Christmas, Mia.

Lovely quilt! Well done for being so organised that you can slow down a bit, I've still got things to do before I can relax and enjoy it all.
Wishing you a very Happy Christmas Mia!

I'm really enjoying this lead up, last bit of stitching to do and a few parcels to wrap. Those decorations are lovely! :)

The blue and white quilt is really lovely, Mia.
I'm glad you've come to the point at which you can slow down a little. I slowed down last week - what's done is done and there isn't a lot of it this year! Little work and plenty of enjoyment!

Oh, Mia...a beautiful blue and white quilt! It has also been difficult for me to find time for my blog. I'm still trying to get all the moving boxes unpacked before my family arrives for Christmas. Your home and color selections are perfect....

Hej, Mia jeg er rigtigt glad for din inspirerende blog. Det er hver gang en stor glaede at se,hvad er nyt i din hjem og hvilken kreative projekter du arbejder paa lige nu...
Den blaa-hvide quilt bli´r bare vidunderlig ( wunderbar ).Og det er saa godt at hvile lidt og alligevel se noget saa pent komme frem. Handsyning ta´r vel meget tid, men det er jo det gode, at man faller til ro og alligevel har en ´paen resultat.
Unskyld meg, jeg mangler de rigtige ord nogen gang,jeg prover bare ...
Jeg sender deg og din familie en hjertelige julehilsen fra Hamburg
