tick tock tick tock

I think that we have about twenty different kids in the neighborhood that we try to give a little something to for Christmas. Yeah, yikes. This year I'm pretty pleased with what we've come up with for most of them; fleece scarves! I found some great striped fleece and got serious with my rotary cutter last night.
Ella and Finn are thrilled with them and now have a couple of new scarves each. It's nice how something so simple to do can impress the munchkins. Hopefully, it will impress the neighborhood munchkins too. If I have time, I'm going to make some clothes pin dolls to tuck into the scarf roll with a note on how to work a 'Worry Doll'.
Going crazy stuck at home with no car.... day three.
Yesterday, I stuck myself in the kitchen and made a cake, snickerdoodles, and a casserole.
I also made a dress and bloomers for Ella, more fleece scarves and more Lumplings.
Hans thinks that it's good for me to be stuck at home with all that I'm getting done.
Oh's not.
There's no telling what will happen next... I might organize my desk. God forbid!

Your snickerdoodles look so yummy! Mine never look that good. It makes me want to bake, but then I would eat them all.
