Cookie Break for Winter Solstice

Here, have a cookie.

Is everyone enjoying the winter solstice?
Today I baked about 200 cookies.   I'm keeping about 50 for myself (heh heh) and giving the rest away as tokens of appreciation.

It's kind of wild that mixing all of this...

Creates this...

I really am appreciative that I will be on vacation the week between Christmas and New Years, for the first time since 1998.  That is very exciting.

And yet, I wish I was off this week too.  2 weeks in a row, at the holidays.  Hmmmm....Well, you know what they say, "When you give a mouse a cookie..."

Ba-dump ump.

I haven't been in the sewing room for any weekend in December....until tonight when I started a tank for the gym.  I also rediscovered a cardigan that I sewed in March and never blogged.  I might it tmw night.   I need to plan the Christmas menu as well.

Lacy overlay for the gym tank.

I don't know why I'm pretending like I don't have to go to work tmw.  I do!
Be well!!


  1. Handmade cookie gifts are the best.

  2. Love homemade cookies!!! Merry Christmas!

  3. I'm taking the entire week and a half off between Christmas and the Monday after New Year's (as PTO), not traveling anywhere, and not having any visitors. I can't remember the last time that I was so excited about taking a chunk of time off! Really hoping to finally finish the coat that I've been chipping away at for the past month while I'm off. :P

  4. Hahaha! If you give a mouse a cookie :-)

    enjoy your time off!!! Hopefully you get to sew a ton!!!

  5. I, too, loved having the week in between off - it was a no stress week. But I often wished I could have the week BEFORE Christmas off, as there was always so much to do. Now that I'm retired, I have them all off! lol

  6. They look delicious! And how nicely packaged for gifting! I hope you have a Merry Christmas!
