The bake shop opened again this evening after a trip to the grocery store to restock some of the ingredients. Five more cakes were made--the fifth is still in the oven as I write. Twelve cakes baked in all (not including the two "practice" cakes) and a few more to go, but those last few will be baked later in the week. Many of these cakes will be distributed tomorrow when we go to my in-laws' house for our annual Christmas celebration.
And, on the quilting front, between cakes I finished the Hey Ghoul Friend quilt that I'll be teaching starting in January. It's never too early to start thinking about Halloween, although I am feeling a little seasonally confused working on a Halloween quilt with only a few days to go until Christmas! If you click on the photo, I think you can see some of the trim I've added tonight. Personally, I love the "diamond ring" she's wearing!
While I was out running to the grocery store, I took the opportunity to stop at Kohl's and pick up a few last gifts. Other than needing a couple gift certificates (and a couple more cakes), I think I'm just about ready for Christmas as far as gifts go. How about you? I'm certain many of us will be busy this weekend preparing for the holiday. Our son, his girlfriend, and our daughter will be here on Christmas, and I still need to decide what to cook. I'm leaning toward "simple," so maybe something like a Honeybaked Ham will end up on our table.
Time for me to get off this computer--that last cake needs to come out of the oven in a few minutes and I still want to make a cheese ball tonight for our get together tomorrow. I hope all of you are enjoying this holiday season!
