I am starting four self portrait samples for a workshop I am going to be teaching. This one still needs some paint and her collar and a few other touches before she is quilted and then embellishes. they are so much fun!
I have ordered tons of fabric that I use in my quilts and then I can just have them here for your too. I only order what I would buy in shops for me. Once my new website is up and the fabric arrives we can begin sharing. Such fun!
This week I have alot of fun creating and getting things going for classes and new ideas.
The BEST news is I have a new website developer who is doing a new site for me and I will be selling books, new patterns, fabrics that I use in my quilts and some quilts too.
I am relieved to know that all of this is in great hands!
By the way I am on Facebook and would love you to be my friend. I share alot of funny things there too
1/2 cup butter
2/3 c. sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 tsp. soda
1 cup yellow corn meal
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Melt butter, add sugar.
Stir well. Add eggs and beat until blended.Add sugar to eggs. Combine buttermilk and soda, then stir into sugar/egg mixture. Add cornmeal, flour, and salt. Stir until just blended. Pour into greased 8 x8 inch pan. Bake 375 degrees for 30 minutes. This is delicious with any soup or stew or meat. A family favorite here.
How is this for a great story quilt idea? Maybe they could all be mismatched. Haha
How would you like a coat like this? What would your friends say?
And the Moose pattern will be coming out around then also. :0)

I got these adorable snowmen ornaments- aren't they creative? Thank you Molly
Time- how about you?
I just got word that I am getting a big order of bolts of fabric. I am often frustrated that I can't find the fabrics I love to use. So I put in some orders so we can all have cool bright fabrics when we want them. Stay tuned.
Hope you have a happy and healthy new Year. It has to be better than this year was.

I love my Christmas tree because I have collected loads of ornaments over the years and friends have given me my favorites. The one above was bought last year in Germany at a Christmas Market in Baden Baden. I think she is adorable.
This little ornament was made years ago at a decorating ornament party I had. Little Jesus has many French knots for hair and accents on His halo. It's old and I love it.
This year I took my two Grandchildren to buy the pajamas and then we drove to the Mission and dropped them off. I am hoping they learn the importance of giving. It makes the season brighter for all of us!
Thank you to those of you who prayed for me this year and helped me in so many ways. This was a tough year and I pray that next year will be a blessing to all of us.
