Hello, hello…time for adventure!
We are hustling and bustling here per the season, and I have several fun things to share this week. 🙂
First off…pretty candy canes! With “victorian” in the name, of course I had to try them. They worked up quickly and easily to make darling gifts. We will finish them off with ribbon and rosettes at the top, for hanging.

And now to the starch-ness! This has been on my to-try list for months and months…and what better time to give it a go than Christmas…for snowflakes!
I love, love, love Lucy’s pretty pattern, and what a difference a little starch, stretch, pin and block makes. Here’s the link to make your own:
Knowing nothing about starching, I bought the blue bottle my friend Kristina recommended.
Reading the suggested dilutions, we went with 1/2 cup starch to 1 cup water.
I’ve discovered I haven’t nearly enough pins…ha ha
And precious angel
My scripture nativity
Praying you are able to enjoy this blessed season despite the busy-ness, and making lovely memories with you and yours. Until next time!
