You can always tell when it's the holiday season in my house by the smells... a fire burning in the fireplace and daily smell of fresh baked goods. While it's a little early for the baked goods, my husband and I did start up our fireplace this past weekend and it was fabulous! Here are some photos from last year's Christmas season...
|The tools of the trade. My kitchen, and especially my dining room, are in a permanent state of messy-ness at Christmas time but it's totally worth it!|
|I tried a new recipe for gingerbread men last year and as you can see, they turned out great! No molasses !|
|There are 18 varieties of cookies pictured here, but I think the grand total came to 23 varieties last year. Mmmm...|

Well, I think that's all for right now. I am still deciding on which type of pattern I plan on using for the next quilt on my list. I am definitely going to go for a block with that one as opposed to the bargello.
I hope that this has helped get you into the Christmas spirit and, as always, feel free to leave me comments or suggestions!
