Pigs on parade


It is time for marzipan pigs, a well established Christmas tradition in Norway.
My local quilt guild had it Christmas meeting last night with a potholder challenge.
A pair of potholders with a Christmas motif gave a raffle ticket.
Many lovely potholders were on display.
I made mine with the gingerbread cookie cutter and it was fun.
I brought one pair for the challenge.
These potholders with matching tea towels are now in my Christmas gift pile.

What precious little piggies! And I'd like to bite into a yummy marzipan in any animal or fruit shape right now yum.

I'm not a real fan of marzipan myself, but the potholders and towels are so cute :-) It's interesting to hear of different traditions in other parts of the world.

Vi skal bake marsipan søndag, - gammel familietradisjon. Tror nok det blir noen griser da, men ikke i stekstil: Dine var søte!

Flotte julekort!

Using a cookie cutter is a marvelous idea. These pigs are cute.
