Post for this year, at least here it's still 2008. In other parts of the world 2009 has already begun!
My day was filled with making traditional Dutch "old years evening" snacks: oliebollen en appelflappen. As far as I know this is a tradition only in The Netherlands, and some searching learned me that the tradition is already a few hundred years old, but the exact origin unknown. This is eaten on the last evening of the year, and a lot of people here are baking these (frying actually) themselves.
We're spending the evening with friends, and this year it was my turn to make these. My son helped me and it was quite fun to do.
Next year I'll be back with sewing related posts, for now I want to thank you all for reading my blog, the very nice comments and e-mails I've received that were so wonderful to read. The international sewing community is a great place to be part of.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
