The Virtual Cookie Exchange is a sweet hop hosted annually by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt. I’m so excited to be a part of this fun hop for a 2nd time. Thanks so much for hosting Carol.
You can see my post from last year here.
I mentioned last year I have 3 cookies I like to make each Christmas season. Last year I shared with you Gingerbread Men. This year I’m sharing Chocolate Chip Cookies, Santa’s favorite. It’s a recipe that I altered over 20 years ago from a cookbook my sister-in-law had. I don’t remember the name of the cookbook. Continue reading “Virtual Cookie Exchange 2016 Day 2”

A few weeks ago, after some over night rain, I had a ton of birds in my yard. Most of them were hunting for the worms that come to the surface after a storm.
This little caught my attention. Not because he was different. He looked like all the other Robins in the yard. It was because he was the best at snagging worms. Continue reading “In the Garden…….”
Hope everyone had a great night of sewing. I did!

Instead of posting pictures of lovely flowers, I thought I would show you what happen last Thursday night.
There was the most wonderful of electric storm that went on for about an hour. I tried to capture on video but I’m not quite good at that. You should have seen it. It was amazing. Than the sky opened up and hailed hail the size of golf balls. Some even larger.
The next morning woke up to this.

It’s day one of Summer Sensations Blog Hop. Thanks to Marian from Seams To Be Sew and today’s sponsor The Fat Quarter Shop.
It’s been a hot summer and living in a house with no air conditioning is not always good for sewing. Thank goodness I have a cool basement. With that, you’d think that I’d be sewing my little heart out, but no. It’s been a busy summer so simple projects are perfect.

I so excited to be done with block 1! Honestly, I don’t make pieced blocks often. In the past I’ve tried and I just couldn’t get it right. For that reason, when I do pieced block I choose paper piecing. It’s just less frustrating. But….I must have done enough of those (paper pieced) that now my piecing is getting better. Cause this block turned out so close to good. My points are not all perfect but they are so close that I don’t really care.
