I mentioned in a previous post that I took a class last weekend at Yankee Cross Stitch to make a woolen feather tree taught by Donna from By The Bay Needleart. LOVED it and finally had time to finish the tree -- just needed to put the red berries on and did that last night. See?
Today is "Christmas Baking Day Part 2" for most of the day (yes, I'm stalling a bit by posting this blog post) where my girls and I bake and decorate to get gifts together for teachers, neighbors, friends, coworkers and family. Last night I was up very late and made fudge (with nuts and without), chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate chip walnut cookes and some butter spritz cookies dipped in chocolate. Today will bring more butter spritz cookies colored pink for poinsettias, more plain and dipped in chocolate, more pretzels, peanut butter blossoms and sugar cookies -- snowmen of course! :) Don't worry -- tomorrow's posting will be photos of everything baked and boxed up and I'm happy to share any recipes if anyone is interested. Housekeeping will have to wait until during the week when I will get the house ready for my parents and brother on Christmas Day!
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone! ~Nicole
