Making Holidays Bright

Hello Everyone,

It has been a pretty rough year... So I thought I would share a few things you can do to try and make this Christmas Season a little more Merry & Bright!

Here is one that I think the kids would love to do...  make a gingerbread house  It's actually fun for the whole family.

It doesn't have to be perfect - just fun!  

How about roasting chestnuts - I think everyone knows the song by Mel Torme "Chestnuts Roasting on an open fire..."  My in-laws use to do this all the time.  - You can do this right in the oven too, if you don't have a fireplace.  - And they taste just as good! 

                                            

Have you tried making Wassailing- which means toasting.  It's a hot spice cider. You can make it with or without alcohol.  If you are not a fan of cider, there is mulled wine, which is heated red wine with fruit and some spices. 

Above is Wassail - Cider

This is the mulled wine - 

You can also try the traditional eggnog or my favorite hot chocolate with marshmallows.  The kids will love these too! 

You can play some board games drink your favorite drink and eat some
chestnuts and enjoy the Holiday Season!

 Hello Friends,

I know, it's been a while since my last post...  OK, a long while.  But I have been quilting, making some Christmas gifts.  Which I can't post all of them, but I will post some.  

Here are few book pillows I made for some friends... These are really cute and you can put a book in the pocket along with a little stuff animal. 

  I also made a toddler bed set with matching pillow sham and pillowcase..
                                            this is the ruffle pillow sham above...
This is the whole bed set all together in the bag...
It really came out so adorable - I love it!! :-)

Here below... is a tumbler quilt I just finished quilting on the longarm.  
                        I need to square it up and add the binding, then it will be done.
I will post a picture when binding is done.

Thank you for stopping by!
