The gift bags are all made again this year:
and that's about all the sewing that's been done around here for the past few days. But I love those bags. Not only do they save paper, but it's so easy to wrap those strangely shaped presents for grandchildren, and I don't need boxes for clothing. Just stopped in to our local quilt shop, Needles, to stock up on their Christmas fabric sale for next year's bags, although some of them do come back.
And this year we even have a low-carbon footprint Christmas tree since Tom and I cut one we planted over ten years ago. Unfortunately, it was about as far away from the house as we could get so we had to drag it downhill, across the creek, and then drag it up hill again with the help of a sled and a little snow.
It couldn't have grown any bigger.
So Merry Christmas to you all! It's time to celebrate!
