Even though I just about cancelled Christmas this year I did still eventually send out the usual one-hundred cards just in time for the New Year, and I couldn’t avoid the annual sweet-making marathon either with my Tuesday-evening workers' group.
I was infected by my Tuesday group’s enthusiasm and so today I made my own (see top picture above). Tuesday's workers' group and I have always make Christmas sweets together, ever since I started the group some ten years ago, and this year they gave me the spur that I needed to get started on my own creations.
I am always amazed at how deft some of the members of this group are, how suddenly their fine motor skills increase ten-fold (second picture). I am sure that this is because we are having fun. Sweet-making sessions before or even after Christmas will definitely stay on the menu.
