I love Christmas and everything about Christmas. Even though I'm not very religious I do like the traditional magic of this day, a little baby Jesus was born to save us.
The first day of Christmas we started with Mimosa (mix of champagne and passion fruit) and eggs Benedict. Ironically I started to read Pagan Christ by Tom Harpur... and my imagination took me to ancient Egypt. To bring myself back to reality I baked some Hungarian Kifflies (recipe was a compliment of Penny). And my first day of Christmas was very relaxing.
The second day of Christmas I started with Spanish coffee (the one with brandy) and ended with a dinner at neighbours. And, I started a new project... For Christmas I bought myself Asian Scene with Buddha and he was calling my name... so again, poor Frederick is on a back burner...
On the third day of Christmas I created a new yahoo group for cross stitchers that like do exchanges of their work, ideas, stash and so on. If you would like to join go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/crossed_exchanges/
