Then I made twenty-four little quilty bits, each with a button and a birdie charm stitched on.
And I wrote out my verse in little tiny letters... twenty-four times. Oh, were my fingers sore!!!
Then I put them all into a box and sent them off to Texas, where they'll get divided up between all twenty-four of us who participated, and we'll all end up with a set of matchboxes for our advent count-down.
I can't wait to see what the rest of them look like!
On another note, if you want to make the yummiest, most comforting food in the whole world, I strongly suggest that you head over to La Fuji Mama's blog and copy out the recipe for Niku-Jaga that she has posted there.
I served it with a side of brown rice and steamed carrots, and couldn't stop eating it. The recipe says it serves 4... that's generous. All 6 of us ate it for dinner, and then I had two more bowlfuls as an evening "snack", and two of us get some for lunch today as well. I'm totally adding this to my list of fall-back recipes!
