I have to admit though, that I love listening to Christmas music right now – so many of the gifts I have been giving lately I make, so the music keeps me in a holiday mood while I am sewing, or baking. By the time Christmas actually comes, I am Kris Kringle incarnate, and on December 26th, I crash…HARD.
I am almost done with my Thanksgiving menu – I have some classics – Green Bean Casserole, homemade rolls, Jello salad…as soon as I get the menu pinned down exactly, I will post it here with recipes. I am also trying pumpkin pie with pumpkin I got from a real live pumpkin – anyone have any experience with that? Is it better, worse?
One of the gifts I am making are the bird ornaments pictured above – that isn’t mine though – it’s from the tutorial, which can be found at Sunshine’s Creations. I wil be attaching one of the birds to all of my gifts, and cookie packages. I am making as many gifts as I can, and since I have my fancy shmancy camera now (I love it SO much I got one of my friends to buy one too!), I will be taking a bunch of pictures as I make progress. I have a couple of quilts to finish, a bunch of jammie pants to make, aprons of course, and who knows what else!
