The knit bumpy balls are finished! One is stuffed with wool and jingle bells, the other with wool, patchouli leaves and dried lavender flowers. The store-bought presents are all wrapped in cloth bags, and I only have some loose ends to weave in (flower barrettes), and some photo albums to put together (it's tradition now, every year the grandparents receive a small photo album of their grandchildren, from throughout the year). I daresay, I might not be scrabbling at the last minute. That's so unlike me!
Now I might have time to go caroling tonight, a solstice bonfire tomorrow night, (if it's not too terribly cold), and then tra-la-la to Minnesota for five days of family, feasting, and Christmas fun!
