Well, as the month progresses and the holidays approach, I get more and more excited. Tomorrow we are going to a Tea Party hosted by Eliza’s Dance Company. I volunteered to make some cookies to bring. One of my favorite cookies to make and eat is Spritz – the pressed butter cookie.
They’ve been tested and approved. I made 4 batches – lots of butter was used. Now we just have to try not to eat any (more) before tomorrow afternoon.
I also decided I did indeed want to make my mother-in-law a gift for Christmas. When we went to the New England Fibre Festival last month we saw some felted birdhouses. Of course I didn’t grab a card, so I did some searching to see if I could find the vendor. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to. But what I did find was a pattern. So within minutes (I love the internet) I’d downloaded it and had committed myself to some holiday knitting! Yarn has been procured, and I’ll be casting on this evening!
Are you getting excited for the holidays?
