Day 8 Give Away!!! And, The Winner From Day 6!



As we maneuver our way through the Holiday Season we must remember our "Best Friends" and make it the least traumatic that we can...I am spending a lot more time in the kitchen with all the potlucks and baking and Enzo has been hanging out in the guest room, lol.

Now for the Give Away news!!!  The winner of the Day 6 Give Away is Sue from Grass Valley :)  Congratulations...send me your mailing address!  You still have 1 more day to comment on the Day 7 Give Away.  As for the Day 8 Give Away...well, it is a brand new pattern donated for the Woolie Give Away.  A fabulous bag pattern by Indigo Junction.  You might make this as a gift for some one...or for yourself!  Leave a comment on this blog if you are interested.  Remember if you are a no reply follower it means you will have to contact me within 3 days or we'll throw it back in the dog dish :).  Please be a registered follower before commenting :).


It is already Christmas in my house!  I have received some wonderful surprises!  These sweet woolie gifts are sooooo wonderful.  You can click on them to enlarge for a closer look...and maybe add them to your "gotta make" list!




Today I hope to prep some wool projects to take with me when I am on the road...I am always content to ride if my fingers have needle and thread to hang onto, lol.  How are you doing on your holiday list?  I still have my Christmas cards to send and some baking to accomplish.  There are many holiday celebrations in my future...and, I love them all.  It helps to keep my mind on the wonderful things about this time of year and not on feeling sad for those I miss so much.  So here is a question for those who wish to comment...what is your #1 favorite cookie to bake during this season???

  4. Though I probably won't have time to bake them this year (we're in the midst of our 2nd and hopefully last move in 3 months), I love chili-chocolate macaroons!

  6. Aww! I'm so excited for Sue! She's a Sweetheart! One of these trips through Grass Valley I'm going to run into her at the quilt shop...I just know I am!
    I have a Irish Shortbread recipe that was a gift from my British Secret Stitcher many years ago and it's a family favorite! They melt in your mouth!

  10. Peanut Blossums (peanut butter cookies with chocolate Kisses on top.) but I have to admit I have never met a Christmas cookie I didn't like! Much like purse patterns.

  11. Scotcheroos. Rice Krispies, peanut butter, chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. They "evaporate" at my house.
