This is the next to last gift for the Advent Swap.
It is a lovely sachet made from embroidered cotton. It smells very nice. One more small gift and then the main gift on Christmas day. I went out to the grocery store today with about half of the population of Marietta. They have a very large parking lot and it was full. I had to wait for a parking place to open up when someone finally left.
I had to get a few last minute ingredients to make pumpkin roll tomorrow. It wouldn’t be Christmas without pumpkin roll. Bill picked up a honey baked ham earlier this week so we are almost ready.
I also delivered one more quilt today that needed to be done for Christmas. Jane made two of these for weddings and I still have one more to quilt right after Christmas.
The embroidery on this quilt is wonderful and I quilted all around it to let it be the focal point.
I finished one more quilt today and called the maker but don’t know if she wants to pick it up tomorrow or wait until after Christmas. I will take photos of it tomorrow.
I have one more photo to show – we have a wonderful customer at the shop that makes shortbread for us each year. I had a small piece on Friday and was anticipating having another one in the evening when I went back to work – it was all gone! I googled recipes and found one that sounded like she had described. It was easy to make and tastes great and I only have to share it with Bill, not everyone at the shop.
I also made two loaves of sourdough bread today. It seems like it is getting better each time I make it. I think the starter gets better as it gets used and replenished.
