    My Swedish Advent Calendar (Quilt/Embroidery Project)

    This is actually a couple of years old now (say 4?), but I smile every time I take it out.

    I got this set of Crazy Santas from Smart Needle and I just had to do a non-traditional advent calender of it.

    In Sweden we have a lot of different advent calendars. And one kind is where you wrap small gifts and hang one for each day... and those kinds are normally hand made, usually cross-stitched. Now, cross-stitching is not my thing so I decided to go a different route - and here is the result!

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    came out great. you just have to smile at their designs. they are so cute.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    That looks so fun. My grand daughter was asking about a chocolate advent calendar. Need to find one ASAP.
