Christmas Crunch Time

Pattern:  Live Life by Shepherd's Bush Printworks by Tina Richards Herman 2011

The jewelry box is by Cottage Garden
Color Distressed Cream

When I bought the first jewelry box at the Counted Cross Stitch Shop, it cost $20.00 (not including the pattern) but the exact same jewelry box cost $10.00 at the Hallmark store. I've got four more to make in about two weeks so I can get them out in the mail.

Ten Minute Table Runner

I can't find the pattern that I used but it is very similar to the one found on this blog.

The next time I make it I would put batting in it to give it a little more body.

Cranberry Walnut Bread
Using up the left over cranberries from Thanksgiving.  Forgot to buy orange juice so we could nto make the Cranberry Whiskey Slushies....oh well there is always Christmas :)

Italian All natural Ground Sausage Stuffing
Really really good.  I've been told this is the only type of stuffing I should make from now on :)
I put things in this stuffing that I have never in my life put in stuffing.  Sun dried oil packed chopped tomatoes??  Parmesan cheese?  Five local grocery stores did not have Focaccia bread so I ended up going to a wine store/sandwich shop where they were willing to sell me something they don't normally sell :)  Thank you Blue Wind Gourmet :)

Stuffed the bird and made a side casserole too.
