and it starts.
i have completely given up on Raggedy.
anyone see that coming?!
it took all the joy out of sewing for me,
and if it doesn't bring you joy, why bother?!
so i have shoved it all in a bag, maybe one
day i can look back at how horrid it is
and have a laugh. doubtful.
SO to brighten up my spirits,
and the kitchen table, i am working on
this! I am really excited about it.
i had to order in some fabric.
p.s. 12 days by Kate Spade is SPARSE PEOPLE!
i know they release it in may, but there should
be a new shipment in Nov. when all the quilting mags
come out with new Holiday patterns.
sew, i had to make sacrifices, and pick a red
from JoAnns 50% Holiday material sale!!
i would've done it all from there, but i am just
so in love with the Green poinsettia pattern.
How can you say no to that face?
and the Charm pack is Holly Jolly from last
years moda Christmas stuff.
i promise this one will be done in a timely manner.
anyone holding their breath?!
and it is time for the tree!!!!!
this year i have conglomerated all of
years past themes. as my hub would say
"it looks like Walt Disney thew up on it"
Lime green, hot pink, electric blue & purple, and
damn near anything with glitter! :P i really like it.
I think the overall theme this year is
and i thought i'd share one of our traditions with yall.
each year since we've been together i get a
picture ornament for our holiday picture.
this one is from 2 years ago. its neat that
we can already see a change in us with
each ornament. anyone out there
do the same? how far do yours go back?
and i meant to post this on Thanksgiving
(Happy late Thanksgiving yall!)
nothing says holidays like cooking!
mom asked me to make my
(i figured it out from an ex's family recipe
and have been using it ever since)
so these are our beauties. i even made
some from the banny eggs. imagine a deviled egg
the size of quarter. SO CUTE!
and what makes them so yummy?
i don't use relish, i add bacon bits
(Hormel real bacon, or fresh is the best)
and small chunks of sharp cheddar cheese.
what are some of yall's Holiday Traditions?
anyone makeing something aweseom for
a Christmas present?
