Editorial Welcome to winter 2010!
Written by Chez
A cold snap is already upon us, and it's fair to say Welcome To Winter - and as the year is turning, so it's time for a new editorial.
Whether you're making or mending, growing or picking, eating or drinking, we have plentiful seasonal articles and discussion.
For some fresh winter air, see our articles on Wild foods to gather in winter and planning your allotment. Or feed your imagination with Alison's Yule Log, Jonnyboy's Rich Christmas Cake and Gil's Christmas Pudding recipes. Gil also has a Sweet Mincemeat recipe which happens to be suet-free and therefore instantly vegetarian. And all these delicious goodies should, of course, be accompanied by Limoncello. And remember Cab's brilliant article on making Home Made Chocolates.
Warm your home with practical projects like Installing a woodburner and Make a draft excluder. For an alternative take on seasonal gestures see Give to a charity fund instead of sending Christmas cards and make Christmas decorations for people instead of cards.
And as ever you will find many more topical discussions on our forum. Come and talk about Making Things with us, whether you are expert or a beginner looking to get started. Everyone is welcome, whether you are feeling the Christmas Spirit or not!
