I was reminded by Sasa, my sweet grandmother, to update my blog. It has been awhile! Aaron and I have been busy enjoying Denmark at Christmastime.
We bought a tree and carted it home in our bike. (You can kind of see the bike in the background.) We thought that this was a great idea until Ethan woke up and realized that there was an enormous tree in his face and started crying. We were nowhere near home when this happened.
Did you know that many Danes leave their Christmas trees outside?
Our family was invited over to our friends' house to enjoy birthday cake last weekend. St. Nicholas made a surprise appearance and brought toys for all the kids. It was really, really sweet.
We went to Tivoli this week with Jess, Pat, and Ruby. Tivoli at Christmastime is gorgeous--lights and decorations everywhere.
Ethan met Santa and told Santa what was on his Christmas list.
Danes don't seem to knead the breads that they make, which is just my style. They just mix the ingredients and let the bread rise overnight. I will be making bread on a regular basis.
Finally, a photo of my quilt progress. I basted my quilt last week and used the painter's tape to create straight lines for quilting. I fell in love with Tallgrass Prairie Studio's loopy quilting, so I am giving it a try. Jacquie, from TPS was kind enough to email me and give me some helpful hints for this technique. Freemotion quilting is very difficult and is hard on the hands.
We have snow here and are staying warm indoors.
