This is my first year as a non-framer. I have baked several dozen cookies, sewed Christmas curtains for the dining room, sewed a pink doggie pocketbook for my "little sister", made three pair of pj's and a pocketbook for my daughter, two fleece blankets, and a Christmas angel.
It is nice to be able to give gifts I made (other than framed pictures) again. I haven't been able to do that in many years.
How cruel you are, Pam to torment us with these glimpses into a 'real' life! I bought cookie making stuff. We are baking Christmas day. Better late than never. Only two kinds (we are cutting down to bare essentials, here) chocolate chip and coconut-wheaties, our two favorites.
EllenAtHowards - "coconut-wheaties"? Hmmmm...do share that recipe! That sounds similar to a Girl Scout cookie I'm thinking of. My daughter and her husband are flying in from Texas for Christmas, and she & I enjoy baking together.
Pamela - this is also the first year in a few that I won't be giving framed collectibles. I can blame that on taking out a $30 per week Christmas Club at work. I bought all the gifts online!
