Happy December

December 23, we got a beautiful Christmas tree...the place around the corner where they'd been selling them put a FREE sign out.  This one had a $75 price tag on it.
We brought homemade gingerbread cookies decorated with words and snowflakes to paint pottery with family and friends.
 Vegetable soup.
 A bit of snow.
 Cinnamon rolls.
 And plenty of merry-making with family!
The cinnamon roll recipe is SO simple and easy.   
Hope your December has been warm and filled with joy! ♥

Sewing mittens

 A new stocking.  The one I just sewed is the second from the left.  You can see how I used the sweater:
I had several sweaters shrink because of being careless with wash, one cashmere...  So, I cut out mittens out of the sleeves and sewed a stocking out of the body.
We got this book out of the library today.  It's dated 1964.
And more mittens sewn from sweaters.
