Thank You, Menards!

Menards is not really one of my favorite stores 
but I made a great find there recently.
And it was just in time for a Crazy Sweater Party!!

What a sport my husband is and we did make a cute couple!!

Christmas Cookies Oh My!

I love to bake 

and I have baked my favorites to take to a party tonight!

Here's what I baked - 

Red Velvet Cheesecake Cookies
Double Chocolate Pomegranate Cookies
Brown Butter Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies
Peppermint Swirls
Crispy Ginger Cut Outs
Noel Cut Outs
Vanilla and Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
Lemon Pistachio Cut Outs
Honey Ginger Bites
Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

I think that's it!!

All recipes are on my Pinterest Boards under Sweet.
Let me know if you need an invitation to join Pinterest!

Lucky for me, I really only like cookies fresh out of the oven
and my husband is the cookie dough snatcher.
But if you were my neighbor, we could be sitting down together right now with a plate of cookies and a fresh cup of gingerbread coffee!

Merry Christmas!

Big Daisy Dot Returns!!

In the midst of my holiday cookie baking, 
I just finished a quilt for michael Miller Fabrics.

Often times, same fabric designs are reprinted in a new color way,
and that is the case with Big Daisy Dot.
I did a previous quilt with this fabric that was featured in a MMF ad.

The Big Daisy Dots fabric has a brown background this time and I have fussy cut the daisies into 3 1/2" squares.  
This quilt also features some of the new Couture Cottons from MMF.

And this is the bonus project sewn with the big daisy dot strips
left over from the fussy cutting of quilt one.
All of these strips usually end up in a scrap basket -
but not this time!!

Next post - COOKIES!!!
