In Norway we open all the presents in Christmas Eve. In the evening the church bells rings Christmas in. We have a nice Christmas meal with our family, and late in the evening Santa comes to visit……..And I forgot my camera. Grrrr….)
I love swapping. And there will be more to come! I have got two Crazy Quilt “Sisters” for 2007. I will tell you more later.
Tonight this quilt will participate in a challenge called “The A4 challenge”.
Our quilt group has an ongoing challenge thru the whole year. And tonight it is the theme: “Winter”. A4 is the name of the size of an ordinary piece of copy paper.
I will try to do my "Christmas" ready for tonight as well, but then I need to get started.
Stay tuned. I will post pictures of the other A4's tomorrow.

During the years that are gone since I started this, I have had several ideas of the results. I think I will go for the last one. You wait and see. I will tell you later in my progress, of reaching my goal for this quilt.
No 8 are a Christmas present (for last year) for a friend. She brings my son to school every morning. But I did not manage to quilt it last year. I got her something else. Well, she did not know about is, still doesn’t. so, I’m going to wrap it, and give it to her this Christmas. It is never to late.
