It’s beginning to feel like Christmas


 I have finally started to prepare for Christmas…About time! With the big day only six sleeps away!

A start has been made on the goodies–on Sunday I weakened and made myself a Christmas cake.
When Ken was alive I used to make a couple of cakes because he always sneaked a” taste test” and with only myself to consider, I settled for a sixinch  square rich fruit cake, which is now busily  going tipsy with the addition of Rum.

Also made has been some more-ish Rocky Road, and a perennial favourite with my family, Apricot coconut balls.

I have even managed some stitching as token gifts for some friends.. Tea light covers with a Christmas theme!
I found them on Embroidery Garden’s website (Embroidery Garden.com) and found them so cute, and with the machine they stitched out in six minutes flat!

Some of their freebies are worth a”look” and a play also.  I have a couple of cute holiday cats to stitch out for some cat loving friends.
