Rainy cookie baking weather

The almond paste cookies need to "set" for a while before baking. It just makes them more lovely. I gave the bath bombs another go. I made peace with the awful bias tape edging on the little dog coat. I accepted the slightly crispy texture on the iron-on dishtowel project. In the dim light of a rainy December afternoon, everything looks better.

My home lacks a fireplace, but this page of Marie Claire Idees makes me think I should have one in every room! I have a large jar in which I like to coil a string of fire fly lights - it would be lovely in a "carton" fireplace.

Jar of lights! I'm doing it!

Are the tea towels Vera? So lovely.

I've got a surprise for you, Missus!
