Christmas Window

Oh my, time is running so fast and now this year is almost over again. I haven't even been able to purchase Christmas presents yet (master thesis, you meany!!), however, I did find the time to decorate my room a little bit to get into this cosy December feeling that I love so much. Unfortunately, I got the idea for the fabric-part of my decorations from a book, Tilda's Winterwelt, and cannot share the instructions with you. What I can share though, are the pictures of my little winter world.

With 5 different kinds of patterned fabric (mostly from Tilda, via Panduro Hobby, too) I sewed A LOT of apples and put them all on a piece of string. Combined with my chain of lights and the stars on the window, it all looks very lovely indeed. Here a close-up of the apples:

Speaking of apples, Bratapfel is a very yummy German Christmas dessert and not even that hard to make. It's basically apples stuffed with almonds, raisins, spices and marzipan. Recipes can be found aplenty on the internet. I wish you all a lovely Christmas season with lots of mulled wine and sweets!!!
