a productive third week of Adven


Lots of busy activity here this past week::
the house has been decorated,
just a few finishing touches left to do.

Some cookies have been baked::

chocolate covered shortbread

cherry filled crescents

peanut butter with chocolate kisses

chocolate-orange biscotti

buttercream-frosted cut-outs
&

cherry double chocolate cookies

A tree was found yesterday at a local tree farm,

and today was decorated.
{sorry, no pictures yet}


I even fit in a little time to start the long awaited
There is not much method to my madness,
I just wanted to get it started--finally!
Whether I get it finished is another story...
And, in the evening I sit and do a few rows on something for me...

{more details to follow}

Hope your holiday preparations are going smoothly!

  1. Love the wreath in the top photo on this blog. I assume those are just assorted sizes of glass balls. Can you comment on how you made it - the base, and how they are fastened on. It's absolutely beautiful!

  3. My goodness, are you sure you have enough going on at once? You sound like me, where one thing leads to another to another to another, and then all of sudden I have a lot going on.

    I LOVE that wreath in your first picture.

    I also wanted to tell you how much I love your coffee cup cozy. I sent it to my knitting and crochet teacher and had her do a class on it last month. Everyone loved it! One of the girls made one with a multi-colored chenille yarn, and it was gorgeous! Thanks for the inspiration.

    It looks and sounds as though you're quite the workhorse! I'm hoping to get some cookies baked today, and those will be the first of the season!

  13. I love the choir girl candle. I have a choir boy that matches. It always brings fond memories from my childhood. I am guessing these candles are at least 40 years old. Thanks for the photo, it is nice to know that others cherish their holiday memories too.

  15. I love your little choir girl candle. I had a very old one from my childhood, also a chorister (maybe more clearly a boy), and I think eventually he melted down and I had to get rid of him. But he was from my very own history, and I loved him for many years.
