December is a month full of expectation. From the very first day of the month, there is a special atmosphere in the house. Advent calendars are ready, and families gather round the table for fun activities and to relax after an otherwise busy day.
Here come a new book from the same authors who brought you Julegleder in 2008, a lavish Christmas book that has sold well in several print runs and editions. This is a similar type of Christmas book with all sorts of projects, liberally supplemented with numerous atmospheric photos from Oppdal, where there is snow and Christmas spirit from early autumn to late spring.
There is a large variety of materials and techniques: knitting, crochet, felting, sewing, papercrafting, simple woodwork and much more. The authors are generous in their sharing of ideas and patterns for Christmas tree decorations, wreaths, table decorations, blankets and cushions, bags, gingerbread houses, gifts for her and small projects ideal for Christmas activity sessions with friends and family. Delicious Christmas baking and hot drinks are also part and parcel of this festive season.
In brief, this book contains everything great about advent and Christmas!
This is the third book from Miriam and her fellow-authors, who are active craft workers in their home town of Oppdal, where among other things they are enthusiastic contributors to Christmas services and markets with their beautiful handworks.
