Checking it twice

What's left on your list? As we count down through the last nine (nine!) days, it's mostly a little wrapping, a lot of baking, and a little last-minute stitching.

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!

I love lists in ways that might seem inappropriate to others. The satisfaction of crossing something off... *sigh* ain't nothin like it!

Ah, but I am given to hyperbole. I'm baking bread for four families. Good, seedy, wholesome bread, because we all need something healthy around the holidays.
