I’ve been working on ornaments for an exchange I am taking part in this Christmas season. They are based on tart tins and then decorated with various embellishments.

This one uses a picture I cut from a Christmas card.

Here comes Santa Claus...

Those are keeping me busy as well as these, which I am foiling and soldering this week.

Our son and his wife and the twins were here on Friday. Older Son and his dear wife cleaned out the coat closet for me, in prep for the holiday season. Rose Red designed a gown for Snow White using a couple of head scarves found in the coat closet. She hoped I’d sew them together to make the gown, but I told her we’d wait until we have Christmas done. Then we’ll bring down a few boxes of fabric from the attic and she can design to her heart’s content.

Older Son brought his round bread cloche over for me to try. I made a batch of sunflower seed bread dough and we baked it in the cloche. It turned out with a wonderful crispy crust and a moist crumb. I ordered a loaf cloche for myself. I’m eager to use it!

And then there were all those little surprises that come with the grands…Snow White laughed uproariously when she saw this picture.

orange that a snack?
