Christmas WIPs


Gift-work continues in Margaret's Workshop...and in the kitchen, too!  These fellows were made a couple of weeks ago and frozen.  


On the menu for today?  My batch of Annual Christmas Fudge -- from my tattered copy of  the Fun to Cook Book from Carnation Evaporated Milk.  I've been making Five-minute Fudge (chocolate) almost every Christmas since I was about eight, and my mother had to help me stir it!




Here's what the fudge-making looked like in process...


And here's what's happening in the "stewdio" in addition to Christmas gifts...


33 Clue #3 Easy Street blocks completed...31 to go!

I just love that hot pink!

I'm linking up with Monika and the gang for WIP Wednesday over at The Needle and Thread Network -- and hope to "see" some of you tonight when Bonnie hosts Quilt Cam -- 9 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. here in the Mountains!

Gosh, Margaret! This takes me back. I forget if mine was the same book but I had a little kids' cookbook too. I remember making Peanut butter cookies- using "butter or margarine- Ask Mother what to use!" I THINK my younger sister absconded with that little book when she left home to be married, but it was MY book!!! BTW, yesterday's post hit home too. I had a similar "situation" here but am getting it all Christmas tidy now. MUCH nicer. Happy Christmas, Margaret!
