Cookies Cookies Cookies

Finally  finished the last batch of Christmas cookies
yesterday. The Kids are happy that I had time
to make the rosettes this year.
Now I can put away the baking supplies.
...Yummm.. They turned out nice and crisp

Next Project

Started on a new quilt for my Son and Daufgter -in- Law
It's a scrap show case Bear Paw quilt 
Took some time to find all the fabrics I liked .
Wendy liked the look of the pattern done all in pretty  
fall colors. So I found lots of oranges and browns with reds and
a few greens and blues thrown in to offset the rest.
 Been a while since I've done a scrappy so the fun has just begun.
Here's a peek at the first block.........

I like the look of the blended colors.

It's fun to sew the bear paws them pick them randomly
to sew into blocks.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas........

Winter has finally come to our part of the country..
We have been so spoiled with the warmer weather
that it didn't seem like fall in Northern Michigan.
But now that the North wind is blowing & bringing us some snow
I thought I'd get a little Chrismasy & show some of my snowman
collection & a few other decorations around the house.
So here goes.....

I made this little snow family a few years  ago and so began my collection  of snowmen . They are so soft
and with weighted bottoms they stand up quite well.

The middle one is a fave made with
 fabric  and buttons.
His little pail that reads "Snowman Seeds"
 is filled with little puff balls that look
like real snow balls.

This one stretches to over 2 feet tall .
I had to get him because of the shoes
being so cute.

 The grandkids keep the countdown going
with this one

This is my musical snow globe.

        My Fireplace with the village on top.

Keeps us warm on cold winter
We had to fence it in to keep the little
 ones out.

My tree with the quilted dancing
skirt I just finished for it.

This is my newest
addition this year.
It is the kids fave
 of course.

And last but not least..... my favoite little snow people.......

Jewell and Autumn
They just love to play in the snow, and can't wait until we can build our first snowman of the season....

Happy Holidays !!!!
