Getting closer…

Standard

These little yarn balls are better than a chocolate Advent. Calorie-free and they last longer!

The Solstice and Christmas are nearly here. I baked two vegan gluten-free fruitcakes last night and I plan to tart up the top of one with pecans and dried apricots to make it more special.

I had some gifts to wrap and because I felt like I was running out of time I cheated and went to the dollar store for gift bags. I did see some gorgeous paper ones for $1.50 each, and had them in my basket until I saw these fabric ones with red snowflakes on. They have a jute drawstring. I was sold! They look very pretty under the tree and I think that even if they didn’t have gifts in them I’d fill them with random stuff and put them there just to look nice.

I have friends coming over tonight so I have a couple of things to do this afternoon but right now I’m having a nice cup of tea, made in a teapot no less!

  1. These bags are cloth ? Look good. Years ago , I made all kinds of bags for gifts . It was a good craze to not have to use papers anymore . Still have many but they never get used much now. Yours look full !
