Earning a living by fairy tales, knitting to keep warm
Almost forgot! Our Nesselrode (alt C'pudding). Cherries got a bit melty. Recipe thanks @DrAnnieGray @Lucy_Worsley
I appear to have a thing about blue shoes...
Our Venetian carrot cake with rum soaked cranberries - all ready for Christmas!
Not that I spoil the Scot and his best buddy, Otis. Not at all...
Now, @drkknits, THIS is holiday reading (work related, but fun!). With bonus Madam de Pompapig.
Mum must have guessed I'd be having a frustrating day today - this card just arrived to cheer me up.
I think that's the Scot making a cameo in my latest old fairy tale book acquisition.

We had our Patrick Swayze skating Christmas party... with appropriate cupcakes.
Finished the little quilt for Mum and Papa's Christmas present - I'm on a roll!
Apparently this is the best spot to laze on a warm summer day
Last night was chilly! So ginger cake and quilt time... the Scot wanted to eat the cake and get under the quilt.
Now, this is how books should look!!
I do rather like my research...
Time to break out the Christmas pjs!

One Firefly quilt, bound with apples and quilted with dinosaurs!
I love that my research gives me excuses to splurge on 1833 editions of fairy tales!
Modcloth included cute, knit-print wrapping paper with latest purchase. I love a free surprise!
Run! ;) http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-round-things
