    Dublb hope you have fun in Brady with the Grandkids

    QuiltE sorry about your Snowman

    Anael you are your family are in my prayers hoping for a good result

    GGal970 I am working on a pattern called Marjen for Error, it is a Dresden design with machine embroidery, I have only a few more blocks to finish and then have to finish the embroidery panels. Will post a pic tomorrow. there is always something going on in my sewing room. I will still finish the year with a few ufo's but that's ok.

    Spent today in the big smoke with DS doing a bit of shopping and dropping off my Snuggle quilts at the Hospital. The staff loved them and one was given to a very sick girl while I was there. They have asked me if I would be interested in making a Queen size quilt that they can raffle. Will have to think about that.

    QuiltE....sorry about the snowman. Sounds like you're ready to slow down and get a good rest.
    Anael...thinking of you and yours.
    JanR...prepare yourself for the snow so it doesn't get you down and your DH calls your crotchety again. I'm surprised that you don't like the quilting. You do such a nice job with it.
    Dubib...blowing dust is not to my liking either. Do you ever get snow?
    Carrie...merrily she sews along...nice snowed in pastime!
    Mirabelle...I looked up that pattern and it's breathtaking! It was made with blue pansy fabric that was fussy cut and the embroidery is blue too. Embroidery machines make a quilt like that possible although I'm sure there have been some done by hand.
    Today is shopping and cleaning. I got the sewing room straightened up yesterday and might sneak a couple of stitches but it will be much later.

    QE--sorry about the snowman. Hope your meal went well last night!

    Anael--you (and yours) are still in my prayers.

    QNS--we too have had the jam, but I didn't want to share what the "surprise" was before everyone got their boxes. Homemade grape jam is one of my favorites!!

    Mirabelle--I am sure your many quilts will be a blessing to those sick at the hospital. I would like to donate a couple quilts a year to the hospice house where a friend of mine passed away last year...this year it was just a little hard. I have 2 half done, so a good start for 2013!

    Ggal--with only having 2 kids at home and them being 11 and 13 I do trust them to not make a big mess of the house when I go to sew for a couple hours each afternoon. I can't say I don't have interruptions or that there aren't days where I only end up in the clubhouse for 15 minutes before it is just easier to come in for the day. Many days one of them comes out with me and works on a project of some sort...sometimes quilting, making cards, just drawing a picture, etc, etc. They have chores to be finished by a certain time. And they spend a lot of time outside too. School is always done before I sneak away.

    Busy morning here on QB. Yes, the rain storm came through with couple of inches; here at home: another came with another inch; then the snow hit,leaving about three inches or so and is blowing about and getting colder today. The hens looked out and stayed in their building; ducks don't care, out they went. Guineas are in their pen. Yes, a sewing today for sure. Tornadoes hitting the South, I pray they take shelter and survive this nasty weather there.

    White out covers all of Iowa, so take care all Iowans. Thankful we can stay put and wait it out.

    Anael - I'm prayin' for ya again taday. {{{{{{{{HIGGS}}}}}}}}}

    GG - Yes we git snow every once in a while. Last year it snowed twice. Good snows too, about 2-3". The year before, it didn't snow a'tall. Most snows we git are just enough ta git the roads wet when they melt, then we have icy roads the next day.

    Thank you all for your prayers, good thoughts and hugs. The twins are doing well, the boy is 5 days behind on the girl but that's nothing to worry about. So we're all happy and this was the only birthday present I really wanted!

    Sunny but cool here in Southern CA.

    Going to make some cookie dough today. I do mine in three stages. I make all the different cookie dough one day, bake them all the next day, and decorate them all the third day. That way, I can put the mixer and flour, sugar, baking soda, etc away after the first day and clean all that mess up. Works out so much better than making that flour/sugar mess every day for a different kind.

    Anael, I'm so happy for you and your son/DDIL. What wonderful news that the babies are doing so well. When is their expected birthdate? My nephew and his wife are have a C-Section for their twins on March 30th.

    No travel here but my DD and GS will be coming from Nashville tomorrow evening. It's predicted that the snow will be over but still cold and blowing. We're keeping our fingers crossed. Still raining here right now with strong winds.

    Awesome news Anael!! Thanks for the update--I think we all feel like "adopted grandmas" to your little ones!

    Jeanie, I want to come to your house and help you bake. I really need to learn how. I like your "3 day system". Mmm-your house is going to smell so good.

    No travel here, Anne, except to work tomorrow (damn!). It has been so dark here all day--like 6 o'clock at night all day. And rain--wow--it's raining buckets and supposed to turn to snow around 2am. And yes, Ggal, I'm crotchety--I'm one of those people that hate snow but live in western PA where it's expected to snow all winter. I even have a remote starter on my SUV so I don't have to clear so much snow off (I'm such a princess LOL). Stay warm and safe everyone.

    I live in a part of Southern CA that is 15 miles from the ocean. I have lived in this area all my life. Yep a native California Girl! It has only snowed one time in all these years. It was in 1949! There was enough snow to cover the ground, and I remember being so excited, until I got my hands in the snow and they hurt like crazy! LOL The mountains surrounding our area get snow often during the winter, so we can see the snow covered hilltops. If we want to "go" to the snow, it is a two hour drive.

    All things came to a halt today; no school, no LQS open, and no plans of going anywhere. Seen a few cars and truck over on US 136 highway (about 1000 yards away from us). Beautiful looking snow until you have to get out in it; high wind blowing and drifting the snow, so the few inches can pile up and cause trouble driving. Experienced drivers only on the roads here and across into the southern tier of counties in Iowa. Yes, its looking like a white Christmas here.

    Thanks for the good news, Anael, about your gc to be.

    You must tell us, Jeanie, when the twins arrive, too.

    "tis the special season to celebrate the birth of one child long ago; and all children are so special. You all give every gk you can reach an extra hug tonight....'cause I cannot reach out and touch our one and only.

    OksewGlad, if you have slowed down to tune in to our chatter, your box is due to arrive on Friday. Through a bf, I found a copy of Flip for you to enjoy with all your grand-kids at your house..that is in the box as well as cookies..dh cannot stay away from them when they are around...and I do love to bake...Thanks to everyone who made my season special and took delivery of the 'box'.

    Sue - My great Nephew came over after school yesterday. He wanted a snack & I gave him one o' your cookies. He said that it was wonderful! I only let him have one 'cause he still needed ta eat supper. (He is 6.) He usually comes over ta practice readin' but this time he used my Go cutter & made his DM a Hot Pad for Christmas. He sat in my lap & helped guide the fabric while I ran the machine. He liked usin' the Go the best. He said "I'm good at this."

    Checking in here....probably close to 8" of snow here. Getting cold and blowing a lot tonight. Schools are already canceled again for tomorrow. DH is out blowing snow now. He wanted to wait until it slowed down/stopped so he didn't have to do it too many times! The kids have shoveled the path to the clubhouse several times for me today. Our kids have spent lots of time in the snow today. Even our oldest DD (almost 15) went out and played a while. Our dogs also love to play in the snow. They were so hyper last night when it started and then this morning when I let them out they didn't want to come in again until I offered them their breakfast.

    I didn't get a lot of sewing done today but more "planning". I worked on taking papers off my Rosie blocks and set another table up so I could rearrange them many times! I have them how I want them now (and numbered them) and have all the sashing fabric cut so will work on that tomorrow. I got a picture of the blocks, so will be posting those on the Rosie thread shortly.

    While I patiently wait for my border fabric to arrive so I can finish Jamestown this is what I am working on.
    The first photo is what it should look like when I have it finished.
    I have all the Dresden blocks made and the ones with the embroidery in the centre I only have 3 more of those to applique. Then it is onto the embroidered panels. I was going to wait until next week to start it when I was home alone and could concentrate (and didn't have to cook)
    I plan on quilting this myself in sections and gee guess what !!!!!!!!!!!!! they are roses

    Mirabelle...I could have guessed your quilt would be pink roses! It's beautiful.
    we woke up to only a dusting of snow. I think it's over for us but the winds are still howling. It's such a blessing to have a warm home and full cupboards. I'm going to sneak in a little sewing this morning and cut for Bonnnie's mystery quilt.

    Alas! The long awaited recipe, I promised ... and hoping for some more from the rest of you!
    This is a favourite that I bring out and make for Christmas. I always do the peppermint option, but that can be up to you. Some use other flavourings, such as orange, rum, butterscotch etc. but for me it's peppermint (or plain) that seems the way to do it!!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Nanaimo Bars
    (no bake)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Melt in double boiler
    1/2 cup butter
    Add in
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/3 cup cocoa
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1 egg (whisk in a little of the hot to the egg, then whisk it all back to the hot)

    Remove from heat and add
    2 cups graham wafer crumbs
    1 cup coconut
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts

    Press into 9"x9" pan.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Cream
    1/4 cup butter
    Blend in
    3 tbsp. milk
    2 tbsp. vanilla instant pudding powder
    2 cups sifted icing sugar
    Optional: peppermint extract
    Optional: green food colouring

    Spread evenly over crumb mix and chill well.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Melt together
    1 cup chocolate chips
    2 tbsp. butter

    Spread thin layer over chilled mixture.
    Cut into bars or squares when cold.
    Keep in frig til ready to serve.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    My Oh My!!!!!!
    *sigh* and *gasp* ...
    MiraB what a beautiful WIP!! It would be hard to stop working on that quilt!


    More later ... just wanted to get this recipe posted and couldn't miss out on commenting about MiraB's outstanding quilt! My company the last two days was a grand time! ... and now onto getting ready for tonight's!! And then my holiday entertaining is over, and I become a guest! Then I can get back to Frosty Actually MUST get back to Frosty, being that he is a gift on the 25th! .... and then onto BBs for the holidays!!!

    I'll be back looking for your holiday recipes!!!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Sew many ideas ... just sew little time!!
