December Projects

This month I was very busy making some Christmas goodies for family.

For my sister-in-law Karen:

At the last possible moment my local quilt shop owner put out a desperate call for a table runner for a competition that she had not promoted very well. I had 2 evenings and managed to come up with this. The theme was ‘stars’ in some way. When I can find a picture, I’ll show it. Oh yah—I came in second and won a free class! Since I teach at the quilt shop, this was a funny “win” for me.

For Christmas every year I make these Chocolate Mice from this recipe. I usually let the cherries soak in rum for a few days to give it a more grown up taste.

I also made a birthday cake for a friend who has a Christmas day birthday.

And we have a new addition to our family—Fudge—who is 14 years old. He was my mom’s dog and acts like a much younger dog. The doggies are sporting their Christmas eye colours—I didn’t doctor these pictures in any way. Just kind of cute…

On another funny note, since I had turkey elsewhere, I missed not having leftovers, so I bought a turkey today and started it at 3pm. This means it will be ready around 10pm. I think I will be a little bit hungry by then.  lol
