Holiday baking

Yesterday was a fun filled morning baking my favorite sugar cookies. I packaged them up for some of our neighbors. Our neighbors have small children so I created cookie decorating kits. I included a variety of sugar cookies, 2 bags of royal icing, and some sugar to sprinkle on top. I hope they enjoy decorating and eating the cookies :)

Sewing machine fun

I was looking at the Sunday paper today and happened to come across this add for a simple beginner machine. If any of you guys out there want something inexpensive for a starter I would take a look at this one. It's being sold at Target. Haven't had the time to look at reviews for the machine, but thought it might be a good option for a few of you out there to look into. If you can leave a comment with thoughts on the machine.

Dc modern meeting

Saturday was the last DC Modern Quilt Guild meeting for the year. I was only able to stay for a few hours, but I was able to see some fabulous work!

It was also the last meeting the my friend, Katie heading the meeting off as president. She has done an awesome job taking over for me! It is a lot of work though, so am glad Elle had volunteered to take over for next year.

Oh Christmas tree ....

I absolutely LOVE Christmas time. It makes me so happy and I have the best memories from when I was a kid. My house is all decked out in merriment and thought I would share.
The last picture is my favorite ornament :) makes me laugh every time I walk past it.

Hope your Holiday season is kicking off to the right start no matter what holiday you celebrate!
