Last-Minute Christmas

Today is Christmas Eve and I am grateful to have gotten some baking done.  Instead of cookies for the neighbors this year it was fresh-baked bread and a jar of jam.

 And each loaf needed it’s own bread wrap so a little last minute sewing was in order.

We love this bread recipe.  It’s dense and heavy and makes great toast.

My favorite gift-wrapping  job this year?  A tomato container that held my mil’s gift of sewing accessories.

Tomorrow we celebrate with good food and good company.  I wish you all blessings this Christmas!

Oh, and someone else is feeling festive over here.


Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas to you L! I hope you had a wonderful break. I wish I could relax more and take a break but I find having my own business and a two year old tough to relax and let go! I need to try though.

    I am a little late for Christmas, but Happy New Year Linda! I love the tomato container idea!

    I love your blog — this is my first time here. I’ll have to try your bread recipe — looks simply scrumptious! I love the Christmas legos, too!

    Such a terrific idea for a neighborly gift. I’ll have to remember this one!

    Happy New Year to you and yours — Ninjaaa-GO! 😉

    Oh, do you want to move and be my neighbour? One of our neighbours ignores us (and their cat likes to poop on our lawn), so I’d gladly swap them for someone who makes beautifully presented homemade bread. Actually, I’d happily swap them for someone pleasant, even without the bread…

      I take it your neighbors don’t read crafty blogs?? 🙂 I’d bake you bread if you were my neighbor! My neighbors are all nice, but sadly we don’t know them very well. Everybody is so busy with work, etc.

Craft Apple

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? Well, crafting is my apple. It’s what I do to maintain my sanity while taking care of my family. I homeschool my three boys, ages 14, 15, and 16), am a quilter, a bagaholic, and pattern designer.  Oh – and I also like taking pictures.
