Wow! I haven't posted in weeks!
Here's what we've been up to...
I finally got the top done for Pat Sloan's charm quilt along. Since I used a Christmas charm pack that Jackie gave me, I thought it would be nice to hang it for Christmas! I just folded over the top and pinned it into a "sleeve". I'll quilt it next week!
Julia and Pete are in a new jazz combo and their first gig was a Christmas benefit concert. Julia shocked a lot of people when she put down her trumpet to sing! They were great and we can't wait to hear more!
I wanted some new decorations, so I made two yarn wreaths with felt flowers for my kitchen cabinets.
Julia has inherited the crafty gene! She made a bunch of gifts for friends, including this cool patchwork and fleece scarf.
Love it rolled up!
We used a whole package of Nutter Butter cookies to make these reindeer. Aren't they the cutest? (I should have taken the photo before we packaged them.)
I worked on some gifts, too. This is the pillow that I needed to repair for my nephew. I'm trying to figure out how long ago it was made. Maybe 17 or 18 years!
A couple of candle mats with matching candles.
And lots of baking!
Someday, I will get the tri-colors right. They taste delicious, but they are lumpy. But since the lumps are almond paste, who cares?
I hope you all have a Sweet, Merry and Bright Christmas!
