Hi, there! I hope all of you are doing well. Here in Tallulah Falls, we're busily preparing for Christmas. I feel like an elf with all the last-minute embroidery projects I've been doing at the Seven-Year Stitch. And I'm not the only one--the sit-and-stitch square is full at almost any given time of the day lately.
Sheriff Manu Singh, his wife Reggie, Ted Nash, and the rest of the Tallulah Falls Police Department have been doing a wonderful job of gathering toys for all the needy children in the area. Angus and I have a basket by the front door of the shop to collect blankets, towels, toys, and pet food to help out the animal shelter. And, in what little spare time they have, Blake and Sadie of MacKenzies' Mochas have been taking treats to nursing homes in the region. I love this season of giving and the outpouring of caring our community shares.
By the way, Todd from the Brew Crew wanted me to share this cocktail with you:
Candy Cane Cocktail*
- 1 shot vanilla rum
- 1 shot white chocolate liqueur (recommended: Godiva)
- 1 shot peppermint schnapps
- Candy cane, garnish
Add all liquid ingredients to cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into martini glass. Garnish with candy cane.

Merry Christmas, everybody! Please stop in at the Seven-Year Stitch and say hello. :)
