here is our front window with some christmas spirit. and draped patiently over the couch, my quilt, just waiting for me to work on it. i only had time to quilt a tiny area this week, so far, because i’ve been so busy with writing proposals, exams, research, reading reading r e a d i n g – things that have taken me out of the house. so unusual!
i managed to find time to bake a big batch of lussekatter/saffran buns for st. lucia day. they are the yummiest. especially if you like saffran (most people) and tender sweet buns (everybody). oh and raisins.
and a bookshelf with a poinsetta, a pomander and some seasonal candle holders. and a tiny bakery from my christmas village(-in-progress). we put up most of the decorations on the first advent (last sunday) as per tradition but some are still missing, tucked in some surprise box in the storage room. i shall make every attempt to get them out before sunday.
and speaking of attempts. my early new years resolution/promise to you long-suffering readers is to have my damn dslr repaired! because blogging is fun, but posting crummy grainy iphone photos really does take some of the thrill out of it.
