Every year I try to make an ornament or two to add to my collection. As I have had such a focus this year on cross stitch, it was only fitting to chain rain the theme. We always try and partake in non financially dependent activities too like having a cookie exchange, making a gingerbread house and filling the season with yummy kitchen smells of cinnamon, mixed spice, apples, mince tarts and cinnamon rolls. Here are a few of the cookie party shots. Happy Stitching!
