Christmas, Part 2
My mother made me the coolest needle roll. I love, love the fabric, and there's room for more needles than you can shake a stick at. And, she says there's also a knitting bag on the way. I feel so lucky to have such a crafty mom!
It's been a good day. I've been blessed with some wonderful heartfelt gifts (including a gorgeous, hand-thrown casserole from a Maine potter, two(!) amaryllis, and a number of books that several people obviously took some time and effort to pick out for me).
Tonight, we're going the simple route with a lasagna dinner, followed up with the gingerbread cake I made yesterday, and some brownies with real raspberries mixed in that my mother made. That, and tons of cookies contributed by a number of people. It's shaping up to be a lovely holiday.
