Miscellaneous Christmas and a Long Winter's Nap

Christmas Cake, tree and presents for friends.
On the 11th Day of Christmas, here are a few more images. (And the image of the Christmas Cake. We finished it today.)

The Bros. Siamese recommend sleeping, this time of year in particular.

Dark Fruitcake, made for a friend's family, at her request.

The Christmas cake looks fabulous! It certainly does not remind me of the nasty cellophane wrapped ones my parents would receive during the 1970s. LOL!

Thanks! It's a lot of work, but it is certainly worthwhile. We love it.

And making this the first time got me hooked on real fruitcake. That plastic-and-sawdust stuff is nothing like the real thing!

I wandered over to your blog by way of Ravelry, and the vintage knitters.
I just have to say that the bedsheets you're showing have been haunting me, of late. I owned them for a while when I worked at an opera company in Upstate New York. And then last week, a friend of mine came to a party in a dress made out of these sheets. She'd bought the dress from a Bay Area dressmaker who claimed the material was "vintage." Heh. I bought my sheets from Kmart under the Martha Stewart brand.
