One would think it was December here in southern Ohio. We have about five inches of snow on the ground, but I'm not complaining. I know many states have much more than that. I love the snow, love to look at it and feel it crunch under my feet, but it's a little bit early for this much of it. That's all.

Well, the weeks have sped past me and this Saturday is my CHRISTMAS IN THE COUNTRY home show. I'm almost ready, though I admit to missing my self-imposed deadline of having all items completed by Wednesday - which was yesterday. As so often happens, there were many interruptions to my crafting routines and once I'd been in pause mode, it was hard to get started again. Still, my displays are ready and I've made Blonde Brownies, Rocky Road Fudge, White Chocolate Pecan Fudge, and Peanut Butter Fudge - and some dog treats, which are baking as I type - for the bake sale area of my show. I have a few kinds of cookies on my list yet to make and I need to add some finishing touches on wool cats I've sewn. Anything else will have to wait for another show. I'm done, well, nearly done. I do still have clean-up to do and that's the only part I dislike about sewing and baking. I make such a mess! If only there was a cleaning fairy. Tomorrow will be my cleaning day and Saturday I'll host the show here at Liberty Homestead - 8593 Hemple Rd. - Germantown, Ohio 45327. The hours are from 10am to 5pm for any of you in my little neck of the woods. 

I'll post a few more photos on my sideline. I think I'm pretty much finished tweaking the displays. I'm just being picky now when I move things around, but my goal is to present and eye-pleasing assortment of handmade goods for sale. I guess I'll find out on Saturday if I succeeded. Have a good weekend everyone, and please wish me luck!

I do wish you lived closer, Merilyn. The show went very well and I'm starting to think about hosting another next Spring. Thank you for your well wishes!
