    oh dear about the hazelnuts … we have a tiny hazelnut bush in a pot in the garden - a squirrel planted it last winder.

    hmmmmmmm … sounds delish. The maple syrup ones are a favorite with the family (and the neighbors, as the whole house is smelling lovely when I do them ) Last night (when I should have been going to bed, actually … ) I roasted and peeled hazelnuts for two cookie recipes. Both recipes are coming down from my mum, but I added the roasting and peeling. Makes the cookies even better even though it is a bother. Do you say peeling with nuts?

    yes, no sense in getting sick to save a few $s ... Funny how you share a storm and still both get the whole one, isn't it ... I am making cookies. Spent most of yesterday working on an embroidery project only to realize there is no chance to finish it for Christmas … so it goes on the shelf to be finished some other time. (It is a "saying" in our family - and among workmen - "Nach fest kommt ab", meaning, once you tighten something too much it breaks. My "technical" brother is saying that a lot.

    wah! no fun. Good thing with the friend and the freezer, Goli. It must be so totally annoying to have these recurrent outages.

    The "jewelry" is such a fun idea! But I really love your card, bess. I am a paper person. And what is being knitted there? It looks like the sweater you are wearing …? But you cannot knit it and wear it at the same time?

    Power outage again?? Fingers crossed it came back swiftly. Your day sounded quite good, but probably called for a quiet evening of reading at the end of it

    found this on loveknitting and had to think about all the brussels sprout discussions … A Christmas Brussels Sprout Ferrero Rocher Cover.

    The hair was way too straight for my taste. But the alternative, hair-wise, was immensely curly hair like an afro. So I stuck with the straight one. (she has some on the back of her head, too, btw ) we were talking about how you do stuff like that "on the side" when you are younger, and how you're now completely done up after a few hours of it We really had fun.

    well, I made one angel (more work than expected, as usual ) I made a smallish one and at least got to finish it. The hair needs a bit cutting, but here it is: We had lots of fun. It was rather delightful to sit around the table and wrestle with glue, gold paper and (most of all) angel hair … it is about 4''.
