Rød og Grøn

I'm feeling rather Danish today so the title of the post is "Red & Green".


Kathie was generous enough to send me a little kit to make up this adorable red and green quilt.

I think it looks perfect right here even if it isn't quilted yet. That will have to wait until after the holidays.
I won these from Ann Hermes. They are the yearly publications publication of AQSG (American Quilt Study Group) and contain the papers presented at the annual seminar. Lots of interesting reading here and I plan on passing them on when I'm done with them.


My son and I went to a Scandinavian Festival in Portland earlier this month. It was so much fun and I plan on making this an annual event.

I picked up a Viking Ship ornament. It reminded me of the Viking museum we went to while in Denmark.

Another lovely ornament to add to our Danish tree.

Hubby and I were out of our work clothes ready for our employee party and I suggested a photo by our second tree. (that's Porter our dog) The Santa suit in the background was worn for many years by my FIL on Christmas Eve.

Glædelig jul!!

  3. Darling little quilt! And a very nice picture with your hubby! I would love to go to the Scandinavian festival if I am ever in OR during that time, since I am Norwegian. I usually hang a little string of Norwegian flags around my Christmas tree (didn't this year though since we didn't put that tree up). I already made lefse for Christmas - do the Danes make it? DS will be very happy when he finds out - it's in the camper's frig right now.

  10. It's amazing the things I learn about that happen here in Portland, from you. LOL..I guess I am so busy with work and a high schooler that I dont find the time to find out about these festivals...need to look into that for next year...as my mom is Danish. She has gone to the one in Junction City that happens in the summer...so will have to find out about this one.

  12. Your Scandinavian tree is very cute. Reminds me a lot of the early American feather trees.

    Your little quilt makes a nice accent to your snowmen too. The nice thing about snowmen vs/ Santas is that you can leave them out longer.

    Lovely holiday picture of your family.

  15. Hope you've got more stamina than I have and get that little quilt quilted in the new year. I've got a basically unquilted Christmas quilt I made 4 years ago which was to be finished 'after Christmas'!

  20. Adorable mini quilt. I am just loving the red and green! That looks like quite an extravagant doll bed it's on. Cute ornaments too. My DH is of 3/4 Swedish descent so we have a Gud Jul Swedish horse on our tree every year. Great picture of you two!

  23. Hi Lori
    Love the photos of your Christmas decorating. And the little quilt is fab.

    Tusind tak for din blog og inspiration.

    p.s. Don't answer me in Danish; I just used Google translator to come up with that! Once I told a quilt shop owner in Beulah, MI "manga tak" , knowing he was Danish, and he went on and on thinking I knew what he was saying. I only remember a couple of phrases my great aunt used to say. Merry Christmas!
