This NYC Quilt is a gift for my sister.
Who lives in NYC.
The fabric is sold at a cool shop up there called
the City Quilter.
And this is a table runner I made for my great-grandmother.
I actually am "making" another one.
I am not sure if it will be done before Christmas.
I like that the stars are wonky
and that the colors are not the traditional red and green
but the green a bit lighter and the red a bit darker.
Just thought I would share!

I know I have been quiet lately...
because most of what I am making happens to be a Christmas gift.
(anyone else there?)
But tomorrow, I promise
a tutorial on a quick hat an scarf set for children or adults.

Chocolate Trail Mix Gifts
This year, we are going homemade.
With two schools…
And a long gift list…
I decided it would be better for my daughter Eden
to make something special for her teachers.
So we made Chocolate Trail Mix!
We went to the grocery store where she picked
and mini chocolate chips
and picked up red and white melting chocolate.
I even let her decide how much of
each ingredient to put in the mix.
We had a fantastic time.
And the mix looked great.
I am going to add a bow to the top of the containers and add a note.
Yet another “to do” is done!

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
at least at the our house!
I made this stocking before last Christmas for my daughter Eden.
Talk about a labor of love!
I filled a glass cookie jar with ball ornaments.
They were on sale at the dollar store and make a cute,
inexpensive table decoration.
Here is an up close image of the lid.
We put greens up around each window in the upstairs this year.
A new house means new decorations.
Little birds, birdhouses, and snowmen are hidden in them.
While this nativity is up all year long,
we have added some trees and
blue strings of lights to make it extra special.
More decorations to come...
