I received the free pattern from W.Cushings for ordering this Christmas. I ordered a bent hook. A good start but not so much the white.
So I ripped that out and found something that works perfectly.
I chose a strip of this wool that works.
Sat husband and I had some time so we went to Woodstock Vt.
One of my favorite towns. This is a Congregational church.
That has a bell that was made by Paul Revere! It was cool to touch something Paul Revere made.
This town has lots of lovely old homes and a very fun Main St for shopping.
We went to lunch in a wonderful restaurant all decorated for Christmas.
And I met Gesine Bullock-Prado and had her sign my copy of this cookbook. She was sweet and welcoming. She has a cooking school in Vermont called Sugar Glider I am hoping to take a class with her at some point.I am hoping after Christmas to try one of her cakes.
Today I hit the grocery store (big mistake wall to wall people all chatting in the isles) and then spent the rest of the day picking up and prepping for Christmas eve dinner.
We have a couple of friends in every year and I make lobster stew and fresh biscuits mmmm among other things.
Of course pork pie for husband.
The presents are wrapped and the house is decorated so come on Christmas.
I can't wait to see my family on Christmas day!
My Son-in-law is having a bit of a health issue and sees a specialist after Christmas. He is much to young for health issues so if you have a Christmas prayer please say one for him. (you are such good prayers)
I wish you all a wonderful Christmas may you enjoy the day anyway you chose to, with family or quietly.
I will post again before the new year.
