Happy Advent Season! Time for Count Down Calendars!

Advent Calenders to Celebrate the Season

Advent Season is here! And my eagerly waited morning ritual of visiting each of my Advent Calendars - peaking behind windows, hanging ornaments and watching the number of days left to Christmas get fewer and fewer - has begun!

The first countdown calendar in the ritual visits this year - my Alan Dart knitted Christmas Tree! And of course that lovely little "gingerbread snowflake" is the first to be hung!

The Snowflakecal, hosted by IMake, is drawing to a close and Martine has requested that during November we share how we plan to use all the snowflakes we have crocheted the past 11 months using patterns found in 100 Snowflakes to Crochet by Caitlin Sainio..

Scandinavian Christmas You Might Have Missed!

Scandinavian themed Luminaries

So sorry for the disappearance. But it looks like I may be back for the remainder of the holiday season. At least I hope so!!!

Since most of us are waaaaaay too busy during December to keep up with our blog reading, tutorials I have shared in the Scandinavian Christmas series December 13th to December 24th on the Pickled herring blog are often missed. I thought I would share them here and now - right when we are all still eagerly seeking out Christmas inspiration!

The secret is out! Diane's very cool Grandmother's Cutting Garden Quilt is finished, photographed, and the pattern is in the shop and on Instagram. So now finally I can brag about it!!!

You Mom's know how it is, right? And you understand? And you support me in my belief that my daughter is very talented, right?

Happy Anniversary! Happy Winter Holidays!

Primstav Embroidery - July 15 to mid-August

Moving on toward Winter Holidays - which have officially begun here on Gingerbreadsnowflakes despite how far I have fallen behind on my much beloved Primstav project! At least I have a tree to share - a Christmas in July tree!

Marking my 6th blogging anniversary and beginning my seventh holiday season today and although it may be a bit quieter than usual this year, I hope to make it worth your while to visit once or twice or more often!!

Halloween is Here!
