It has become a bit of a tradition that my kitchen window participates in our village Adventkalendar. This year we opened on the 5th; that's when the Dutch celebrate St. Nicholas. So apart from my decorated window and large amounts of Glühwein, we also had pepernoten, speculaas and taai-taai.
This year, I decorated my window with the Schwalm embroidery nativity. Having a partitioned window, we ended up with four scenes.
If you would like to know how the figures were made, check out these older blog posts. In time for Christmas 2018, I'll run a nativity workshop on the 8th of December 2018. More information on Schwalm embroidery can be found on Luzine Happel's website (available in German and English).
And since it has been quite the year for us, I am going to take a short break from blogging. In fact, this is my last post for this year. Thank you for your support and have a marvellous Christmas and a happy new year! See you on the 8th of January with a brand new blog post.
