I've chosen Holly & Wild Rose. I hope the winner will like it.
I think I will leave it a whole week and hold the draw on Sunday the 13th of December.
Then I can ship straight away on the following Monday,
hoping the winner will receive it in time for Christmas!
I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who visits my blog for your comments throughout the year, I really appreciate it and all that I learn through our interactions.
I have started decorating the house and playing Christmas carols on the piano (I like to play the first one on the 1st of December)… I have also made our "Stollen" (a quarkstollen based on a recipe inherited from my mother-in-law who had it from a German friend a long long time ago). It's a favourite in our family and I always particularly get pleasure in seeing all the lovely ingredients in my huge Mason bowl.. all the fruits and nuts and lemon, and vanilla, and rhum… Mmmmm! Smells great even before you bake it.
On a last note, I'm starting to feel rushed now as I have many unfinished GIPs! (gifts-in-progress). Some of them are very nearly done but some I am just starting… how many days are there left??
I'm sure I'm not the only one and many of you are in the same boat, furiously knitting, crocheting or tatting away!
Here are some of my GIPs… plus some that are not even started yet!
I hope you are all enjoying your holiday preparations… and don't forget to leave a comment to be entered for the shuttle draw!
