The Joulukalenteri

Siinä se on, nuppineuloilla kiinni seinässä, yöllisen tonttuvieraan helposti löydettävissä. Jämälankavarasto keveni pikkuisen (mutta on silti vielä aivan liian suuri) ja tilkut tuli tehtyä nopeasti. Luukkujen ompelu pohjaan kiinni vei sitten himpun verran enemmän aikaa ja hermoja. Kyllä en tykkää ompelusta. Kalenterin pohjaksi kaivoin kaapin perukoilta vanhan mistä-lie-heinästä kudotun tabletin. Rautalankanumerot näkyvät enemmän tai vähemmän huonosti, mutta on se hieno! Tähän mennessä…

When done with a little flair, a small gesture is much more meaningful.  Look, for example, at the quick bread. It takes almost no time to make  -- quick breads don't require rising or kneading -- but can be a  wonderful gift for a hostess or a neighbor.
