Russian Christmas is on January 7th, is an Orthodox church holiday (why it is in January I wrote here). Winter long holidays started December 31st and are till January 10th. So many days to relax and I had to think what to do these days. The list was not too long: to watch city decorations, to go to my garden and cottage, depending on the weather of course.
This picture was taken yesterday in the woods along the road to my garden,
it was -20 C ( -3 F) and my camera said "no more pictures".
I cooked some dishes for Christmas dinner: chicken breast rolls wrapped in smoked bacon, cabbage and carrot, smoked sprats with green salad. For dessert: bread pudding with fruit, nuts and cream and apple-orange-banana-cranberry salad.
I love to embroider, therefore I've chosen an interesting pattern to make the new pillowcase for the sitting room cushion and when I have free time I do my new thing. This embroidery is made on canvas, floss in 3 threads. I took a picture of my work, but it isn't finished yet.
A very cold day, oh!
