Christmas Baking Relief!

What do you do when you are tired and get a cold before Christmas and you want to have baking to share with the family? Well if you're lucky like me you'll know a great baker who loves to bake and she'll make you 12 dozen of the most delicious cookies for $25. This was just what the doctor ordered to keep me sane! I am almost done baking. I did make some Cinnamon Roll Cookies this weekend, but when you get a bad cold it takes a lot of energy. I was going to do jam jam's but I'm thinking now that it's just not going to happen. 
I'm trying to remind myself that it isn't about how much you bake or how many gifts you have to offer, there is more reason to the season. So instead of ending up celebrating Stressmas, I'm going to take a cue from my good friend and boss and 'take it easy' and actually celebrate a joy filled Christmas!

Out to Dry

Just a fun way to capture some of the dishcloths I have stashed
in my dishcloth jar.

My Spring Meadow

So I finished my Spring Meadow(Shaeyln Shawl) this morning - it was done last night but it was time for bed so I cast off this morning. I love how the yellow went with the three little pigs, quite lucky actually. Lesson learned don't ever attempt a project with discontinued yarn unless you know for sure you have enough on hand to finish.

I took some good advice from my sis and a fellow blogger and used the yellow as much as needed and added the three little pigs at the end to pull it all together. I think it worked very well, thanks for the great advice.

I think Judith is going to love this shawl, it has a 59" wingspan and is 28" deep - perfect Christmas Gift!
