It's been a good, happy, gift-making Christmas. I started in early September, I think that's part of why things are so relaxed right now. I alternated between making things from directions or patterns (in the books above) and just plain winging it. I bought some beautiful things on Etsy, to fill in the gaps.
Next week, it's baking time: my annual lovefest with Martha Stewart's Chocolate Black Pepper cookies, and some sanding-sugar snowflakes. Also, I'm baking this bread for everyone on our block. Busy, busy, busy.
Tis the season!
