IR sauna! Of the portable (and economic) kind. Gorgeously hot in here. 😁 I'm looking forward to reaping the benefits of "bathing" in infra red heat.

Nye kjøreledningsstolper. Dette blir bra.

And then winter came. Suddenly. It seems the first snow is always a surprise. 😀 Spotted in Oslo today. 😁

Winter! Last night we attended the Christmas concert of the boy's school. Fab event, such a bunch of talented kids. Going in the ground was bare, but we had frost. Coming out we had 5 cm/2" of snow. And now the world is white. ❤❄❤ Long may it last. 
The sheaf of oats we put up for the birds looks a bit dishevelled though. 😅

Vinter! Snø! Julestemning! Å gå inn på bar mark, ha to timer julekonsert og komme ut til nysnø var helt magisk. Og den ligger fortsatt. Det kan den godt fortsette med. Selv om neket ser litt rufsete ut. 
Det eneste var dette asfaltarbeidet vi venter på, da... #Snow #ChristmasLandscape #WhiteWorld #SheafOfOats #FeedTheBirds #FeedTheBirdsAndNotTheCats #JulestemningenLaSegOverLandet #HvittOgVakkert

Christmas concert with my son's high school. Love this tradition.

Julekonsert Lillestrøm vgs i Lillestrøm kirke. Kjekt med musikalske barn, jeg gleder meg!

Insulating the attic today. It'll be interesting to see how this helps. It should lower the heating bill a bit. And I love having someone else do the job. ❤

Etterisolering av loftet! Grådig kjekt med folk som gjør det for deg og blåser isolasjonen på plass. ❤😁 #NorskHusisolering #paroc #etterisolering #VarmtHus #InsulatingTheAttic #WarmHouse #WinterReadyHouse #BabyItsWarmInside
This year's (and quite possibly coming years') advent wreath. Great fun to make.

Osiris just jumped onto my lap and laid down. ❤ That's a first. I guess I'll just have to sit here's while, as I'd definitely like to encourage this kind of behaviour. 😁 He's two years now, so maybe that means end of wild  kitten phase and moving into more cuddly mature cat phase? I wouldn't mind!
PS-didn't last long, but long enough for a photo and this post. 😅

Colouring Christmas card lino prints. Unfortunately the ink I used to print is still water soluble after drying. Oops. I need to be careful to not make it a smudging greygreen mass. The result is still ok imo. Done with the green, on to the red!

Finally! These letters, that I planned on drawing and updating daily, have had a break. Thankfully a kind and dear soul reminded me. So here's P.

Test print - and a new "God Jul" (Good Yule/Merry Christmas) as I managed to kill the original. 🙄 Mounting on plywood tomorrow, then printing. Fingers crossed my talens ink does the job... Mum has ordered 30. 😁

New Christmas card idea,  a design that wraps around an A5 card folded to A6. Mum wanted that size and my previous on is just a wee bit too big. Let's see how this pans out.

Some vegetables are  prettier than others. 
I 💜 red cabbage. Braised in fat, it's wonderfully tasty.

Done! I (we) now have a "new" set of potholders. They will no longer get stuck on stuff, and they look kind of fun, don't they? Hopefully I'll get at least 10 more years of use, they're already 22 years old and one of them has been repaired before. And honestly? These are the best ever!

One down, one to go. 😁 I quite like how it turned out, despite not thinking through where to place the stitch lines before I started. And the most important thing: it still feels good in the hand, is soft and pliable. Win!

Make do and mend.
These are my fave potholders, but one side has become a little threadbare. So I made a paper template, cut two circles from an old shirt, ironed the edges under and pinned in place. I then sewed around the edge and are currently stitching all over, shibori style. Choosing to mend by hand instead of by machine, so that I keep these nice and soft. Nice, meditative work. 😊
