The days are getting shorter and the time for Christmas celebrating is nearly here. Luckily my "to do" list is getting shorter, too. How are your preparations coming along? If you're looking for some ideas, try these:

Espresso chocolate shortbread cookies are filled with buttery goodness. (Be sure to make an extra batch to keep.)

Still baking

Everyone can use a new calendar. Even if you *think* you're not artistic, these are fun and easy to make.

Gift making

If your friends and family aren't coffee lovers, try baking these brown butter brown sugar shorties.


So there you have it! Some progress for me, and ideas for you. Knitting continues and there will be more baking, I'm sure. But before I get started, do you have any recipes you want to share? I'm always on the lookout for the next best thing!
