    Mirabelle--very pretty quilt!

    Always nice to get on the board and see most everyone having checked in.

    The sun is shining today and we are working on digging out. Need to go clear snow at DMIL house when done here. Had a flat tire on the tractor so DH got enough snow moved to get the truck out and then had to get that fixed...he is back at work on the driveway now. I need to get bundled up again and shovel....

    Hope all have a great day!

    Love the roses, Mirabelle...that is a another beautiful quilt!!

    Nice to hear the chatter from everyone, Anael, Jeanie, QuiltE, DD and Carrie!! Seen QuiltE's favorite cookie...what happened to the rest of the PC riders...Jeanie you mentioned 3 day cookies...are they sugar cookies, cut out and frosted?? Would be nice if everyone posted their favorite cookie or cake for Christmas!! Love new recipes...even if I favor the old stand bys. Thanks, DD, for the compliments....think I am blushing...its old fashion everyday cooking.

    7 Layer Bar Cookies

    1/2 cup butter or margarine
    1 1/2 cups finely crushed graham crackers
    *1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
    *1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
    1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
    **1/2 cup pecans
    1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
    Preheat oven 350*F
    Melt butter: stir in crushed graham crackers. Pat crumb mixture evenly in bottom of an ungreased 13"x9"x2" pan. Layer in order the next 4 ingredients. Pour the canned milk evenly over all. Bake at 350*F for 30 min.s, cool, cut into 1" square pieces. (They are rich & any bigger can be too much all at once.)

    * Original recipe calls for 1 cup
    ** Original recipe calls for walnuts


    These are a family favorite & so easy ta make. However the ingredients can be a bit expensive.

    QNS - when I bake for Christmas, I make around 4 types of drop cookies, and several bar cookies. I will make the dough for all the drop cookies one day and refrigerate it. The next day I will bake all the cookies. Then the 3rd day, I will put the frosting or decorations on all the cookies. I read about this process a few years ago, and love it. All the flour, sugar, etc you can put away after the first day. All you do the second day, is line the cookie sheets with parchment paper, and I use cookie scoops to scoop out the dough and bake all the cookies. It just seems a more orderly way to bake a lot of variety of cookies. When I did it the conventional way, it seemed I was always getting busy mixing, and ended up burning some of the cookies. My way, all you do is scoop and bake on the second day!

    Sounds like a great idea, Jeanie...but what is your favorite one that you do...a bar cookie??

    I recognize your recipe, Dublb. It is good, easy and quick to make. Will have to try QuiltE's recipe.

    Mirab, what a beautiful quilt. Are you also doing the embroidery? I hope you don't mind but I passed the pic on to my FART/quilt friend. She does lots of embroidered blocks in her quilts and I know she'll love yours. I'm not a "flowerey"type gal but I absolutely love that quilt!

    Wow--just looking at these recipes I gained 5 lbs. Well, it could have been all the cookies and then pizza I had at work today. Just may have to dust off my baking skills and try them. Thanks.

    Our snow storm fizzled out--YAY!!! We got a dusting, maybe an inch coming over night. But the wind--holy cow! I have an old house with old windows and they are rattling. There are trash cans and Christmas decorations all over the street and sidewalks. I have a moose windsock out front and it has been straight out sideways all day. Feel sorry for folks trying to travel this week-end. Hope yinz are all staying home; if not, please be careful out there. I get nervous behind the semi trucks because they are swaying in the wind.

    JanRN of course I don't mind, caring is sharing Yes I am doing all the machine embroidery, have all the blocks finished now, just getting up the courage to do the embroidered panels. I haven't done much embroidery where perfect placement is required so I was studying it today but it is so hot here I spent the afternoon sleeping, something I very very rarely do.

    It is 9.30pm and I have only just turned the airconditioner off, it has been on since about 11am. the one is the bedroom is on though. Having never seen snow it is hard to imagine being snowed in although it can't be much different than being flooded just the temperature difference. Our wet season has started but as yet we haven't had any rain.

    I'm getting fatter just reading all the cookie recipes...I can't wait to try them when I get to NC...My sister is the baker in my family and I'm the cook...She will call me and ask..."what goes in" and I'm always asking "I need a cookie recipe"..my mother never used a recipe for anything...she just knew how to do it...
    The wind here has been howing for 2 days..2 more big oak trees down in the back..not close to the house...I hope it stops soon..
    Carriem, I'm trying to remember everyone signed up for the BB blocks and I can only come up with 12...who is the 13th?
    My grandsons will be visiting Christmas Eve...What to make for dinner??? neither one of them like the same thing!
    Mirabelle, Your "Roses" quilt will be beautiful when finished...but then again all your quilts are beautiful!
    I changed my mind about the block I was going to do and created a block last night that is so unlike me....I just need some input from all of you..I need to know what your favorite color is. so please let me know...soon...

    It was a MERRY Christmas Day today as the postman delivered a big box of fruit from a Texas email friend, Carolyn from Ft. Worth area. Apples, Oranges, and Pears. Made tears come to my eyes, she is so nice. All I did was to send her an 8x8 box of cookies and fruit jam. Wish I could ship her fresh brown eggs ; we have so many with our pullets laying at least a dozen and half daily...and every once in while, all 21 will lay an egg for the day.

    Honchey, GrannyQ joined our exchange of blocks, late, so if you are counting yourself, perhaps you are not counting her. She loves blue...DD loves purple....Mirabelle loves roses...pink and red....GardenGal loves the dark red, as OksewGlad does and Carrie...the last three use a lot of Kansas Trouble fabric in their quilts. Dublb loves the red, white and blue. I use off white or light light beige, not white..too. If I have said the wrong color for anyone, please let me know, for that's what I remember seeing in your wonderful blocks.

    Honchy, I figure this will be a scrappy quilt, as everyone is doing their own thing! Send me anything and I'll love it!!!

    This cookie recipe from allrecipe.com is called Pebble Nodder, the Danish Christmas Cookie...I subscribe to their free service and found this an unusual but want-to-try-this. 1 c.butter; 1.c.sugar; 2 eggs; 2 1/2 c. all purpose flour; 1 teaspoon of ground cardamom; 1 teaspoon of cinnamon or nutmeg or cloves. The Billy Goat cookie I sent to everyone had cardamom in it...no cinnamon or nutmeg or cloves or ginger. Notice no salt or oil.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time until light and fluffy. Combine with the other ingredients until blended. Separate the dough in 8 balls. and roll each ball into a rope about as big around as your finger on a lightly floured surface. Cut into 1/2 pieces and place them on parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes in the reheated oven, or until lightly browned. Transfer to cooling racks to cool completely. These are 'white' cookies that might stand out among the chocolate and peanut butter cookies...gingerbread...butterscotch..etc. Picture makes me think of marshmallows!
