It’s a great feeling when the final stitches are put into a project. I’ve been working on two secret Christmas projects and happily now both are done and dusted. One is going to be packed up and sent off overseas with a Christmas card and a newsy letter, and the other is a quilty gift for a friend.
I’ve been wounded in action as I was hurrying to get these finished, as I managed to cut a hole in my finger with my sharp scissors as I was snipping one of the last threads! So now I can heave a sigh of relief that these two things have been completed with time to spare. As they are secrets, I’ll just show a little smidgeon of the overseas one. Once given to their respective recipients, all will be revealed, as I don’t want to spoil the surprises.
Another job I managed to squeeze in today was making some microwave Lemon Honey. The lemons have been hanging around for ages, so I really wanted to get on with this job. The microwave recipe only makes a small quantity, and I ended up with two and a half small jars. Robin doesn’t eat Lemon Honey, so it is all mine! I’ve found a scrumptious sounding recipe on the internet using some of this lemony goodness, so can’t wait to try it.
