    oooh it is a lovely combination. i buy fresh or frozen berries, the dried ones only seem to taste like raisins to me but I chopped them tiny (they were frozen, i used a chopper whuzzer thingie ) and mixed with finely chopped walnuts to add to the basic cookie mix, any will do depending on how one likes one's cookies Today I used one without leavening, as for shortbread. The berries gave a pink tinge to the dough, the taste is delicate and if I keep typing here I won't be tempted to i must make the maple syrup again too :puts-maple-syrup-on-shopping-list:

    It is the leftover yarn from the sweater! I am knitting a cowl to join to itself at the grey row. There are a few beads knit in. I've not done that before. paper person too Learning and making the cards was so much fun! erm... after the party I collected everyone's cracker papers to make into boxes or something. Too pretty to get rid. The key idea is probably all over Pinterest. Just new to me
