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
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
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
My tree with the quilted dancing
skirt I just finished for it.
This is my newest
addition this year.
It is the kids fave
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....
I am the mother of three & grandmother of 5 girls.
I love to sew, it's my favorite pastime. Quilting is a great stress reducer. It's also a great hobby on those long cold Northern Michigan winter days. I also like to read and spend time with my grandkids.
