Today I have a day off from work and a day off is usually used to keep up with ongoing projects or start new projects. The best days off are the ones when multiple projects are finished. Like today.

* I baked Ginger Cookies again (because I loved the ones I baked recently and had a craving for them and I've bought a new kitchen scale that I had to use)

* made some X-mas stuff, like a folded paper star

* and X-mas cards from stamps and copper paint

* made an origami tea light holder (patience is the magic word here,in case you want to try this, too; you can find a tutorial here).

 * after all that I crocheted some grannies for a blanket I'm working on. I'm trying to do one granny a day, but skipped a couple of days and now I'm back on scheme. Pictures of the blanket will follow as soon as it's finished. Could be never though, because I hate large, timeconsuming projects, and usually don't get the finish line. Somebody gave me some yarn en because I didn't know what to do with it and I'm gradually smothered by pillows I decided it had to be a blanket this time.


This week my Cherry Blossom Trunk was featured by homework!!

Thank you so much, Carolyn!!


  1. Wow, you are a major productivity roll, dear Liz. I can practically smell the tempting, heady, gorgeous scent of your freshly baked ginger cookies from here! :) I love the the Christmas baking (and cooking) season is upon us again. I did a small grocery shopping on Saturday and added a few items to the cart that are expressly for the purpose, since they were on sale now and will keep until I need them in the coming weeks (like bricks of cream cheese, for example).

    Big hugs & happy Tuesday wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

  3. Been wanting to try some of that origami too, thanks for the inspiration on craft schooling Sunday!

    1. It's not very difficult. Only asks some patience.
