These books are put out every year for the grandkids to read when the stop over for a visit or to stay over night. It is kind of a tradition with them. They have written their name in their favorite book and one day they will give them to their children.
Sydney's favorite.....she reads Christmas Coolies to Cammy.
Cammy's favorite....naturally she is a kitty lover. She wants a kitty for Christmas.
My favorite...... it has all kinds of recipes and craft ideas
I noticed this little pucker when I was putting my Christmas quilt back on the LA.... I don't know what to do If I rip out the stitches, there is no way I can make it smooth. I wanted to enter this one in one of the show this coming year.....grrrrrrrrrrrrr
Decided to name the quilt after my Mom who passed away in August, who made tons of sugar cookies every year for Christmas which has been handed down to me ..lol " Mama's Sugar Cookies"
My girls and granddaughter's are taking on the tradition
This is a panel quilt using wool and cotton batting, so fine thread. I didn't quilt the center to death so it would give a little definition to the baby. This is the last customer quilt for the year of 2010. Now on to my Chritmas quilt .... will try to finish it before Christmas, if not after....
Okay girls....... Raylene Jane Joan Suzan Diane Vivian Angie Shannon Esther Irene Anne Linnea the tea's a brewing and I'm waiting on you.
Joan this is the sugar cookie recipe that my grandmother and mother used for their Christmas cookies. They are very easy to make .... if the dough is a little sticky I add more flour to make it a little easier to roll out. I'm naming my Christmas quilt after these cookies "Mama's Sugar Cookies". As you can see I frosted them the same color to match my quilt...... nuts I am! Enjoy!!
Made sugar cookies yesterday...frosted them green & pink to match my Christmas theme .... grandkids don't care they just eat them. Now to make fudge today. The grandkids will come over next week for a hot game of monopoly, eat homemade pizza ( their favorite ) cookies, and fudge. Then I will send them home sick....lol
Pink sky just for me this morning.... couldn't resist the photo. Colours would make for an interesting quilt. hmmmmm! Photo shop here I come...
This is my great grandmothers Christmas cactus that my grandmother had in her home for years. When grandma went to heaven I took over the plant. I have given family member and friends slips from this plant to keep it going forever. This plant is over a 100 years old. It is just starting to bloom for Christmas.
I've had to take my quilt off the LA several times to finish up customers quilts. This is what I have quilted so far ..... hope I can get this quilted by next Wednesday. The pink block, I will change to a pink thread so the feathers will show on the back of the quilt.
Plus I had to get caught up with my Wednesday flowers ...... I have been sooooo busy lately.
