Do you like candy canes? I remember eagerly awaiting Christmas time so that there would be candy canes and sucking on them as a kid. Funny, I don't really like them that much as a candy any more.
I buy a box each year to hang on the tree and after Christmas I put them in a bag where our snacks reside. The following year I find the bag again and throw it out. Only my daughter will actually eat maybe one candy cane a year.
This year one of my husband's students gave him a mug with a stocking holding two large candy canes....one peppermint, one strawberry. I may have to refer to Hubby as Mr. Fantastic on the blog from now on.
I came upon these great candy cane ornaments when we were going through my late BIL's decorations. I think these may replace the annual box in future years. Don't they look very realistic.
I also sewed a candy cane this past week. There are two to make, but I could only complete this one. I don't want to take any chances so I am limiting my sewing.
I still have to finish attaching this candy cane. I will make the other one today hopefully.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching.
Thanks for stopping by!
