Five Dalahäster gazed upon nine kumquat pomanders…it sure takes a lot of cloves to make these, and they wondered what ever happened to the rest of the kumquats when the cloves ran out???

It was a two-Hitty job to saw the cinnamon logs into 1/2 to 3/4 inch sections!

Lovely-smelling ingredients

We picked Rosemary twigs from our flower pot garden, and assembled the bowls of garland ingredients!

Amelia wielded the leather-needle, threaded with cheerful red string…
