I just wanted to pop in quick and wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Here in MN we are having a white Christmas. In fact we are under a winter storm warning, with 9-20 inches expected.
So far, it doesn’t look that serious, but it sure is pretty.
I also want to say congratulations to the winner from my last post. I wanted to spread a little Christmas cheer by giving away a copy of my Livin’ Large book.
The winner is: Kim D or www.createandsew.blogspot.com.

Kim, please e-mail your shipping address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will ship out your Christmas gift.
The writing of this post was interrupted by the sound of a diesel truck in the drive way. I looked out the window to see this large box being delivered:
I wasn’t expecting any deliveries on Christmas Eve, but this gift from Henry Glass Fabrics was in that box:
It’s my new Wildflowers line! It is laid out in my studio, looking all cheerful and sassy.
So, I’d like to continue to spread a little Christmas cheer, by giving away a fat quarter pack of the fabric. It’s really my last chance to spread a little Christmas cheer, as I will be out celebrating with family the next few days and blogging will be the last thing on my mind! I would assume that many of you are the same, so I will leave the contest open until next week, so you have plenty of time to enter.
All you have to do is leave a comment to be entered to win. (One entry per person please).
That fat quarter pack will give you a good start toward making this –
Or this !!!!
(That’s all I’ve gotten made out of the fabric yet, but there will be more to come soon!)
Now, back to what I had started blogging about . . . . .
I wanted to show you these cute little Christmas mice my niece and I made yesterday.
I found the recipe at www.tastykitchen.com and they are made from a chocolate covered cherry and a Hershey’s kiss. The kicker is those almond ears!
We had fun with it and it was something different. Now, to get them to Christmas dinner without breaking off all their ears . . . .
We also made a ginger bread house, which was a gift from my printer.
Bella is like me – very serious about her crafting!
Don’t you almost get a tummy ache just looking at it?
But hey, it’s Chrimstmas and tummy aches are a big part of what Christmas is about!
Wishing you a safe and Happy Holidays, and only “good” tummy aches . . .
Don’t forget to leave me a comment for the fabric ;-)
