So tonight I rebelled! I needed to do something that called for a creative effort. I rummaged around and found some Christmas fabric that I think I bought over 15 years ago (anyone recognize the Brannock and Patek angel fabric--copyright date 1995? I still have a couple of yards of it).
|The colors on this look dark, but they are pretty true. I had to take several|
photos to get one that stayed this close to the actual fabric colors.
I've made no progress on my Rocky Mountain Christmas Quilt. I've been doing too much of this...
|One of two baskets filled with gift bags of my herbal soap, ready for delivery!|
|Holiday shortbread, plain and jam-filled, being plated up for friends. I|
have six holiday shortbread pans, and with three ovens at my house, I
can bake up quite a bit in a short amount of time.
Christmas may bring with it a hectic pace and a stressfully long "to do" list, but I am loving the holiday music (the old standards are my favorites) and movies (again, I lean toward the black and white classics), the lights and Nativity displays, the festive foods and atmosphere of good will. It will be over all too soon. I want to relish it while I can. I think I'll go put in another Christmas movie and pick up where I left off on that quilt binding.
Until next time, from the little mountain valley where we are hoping for a white Christmas,
