I have been feeling down a little lately, not working , gaining weight and a few other things now with Christmas coming I get more homesick then ever. I went shopping yesterday and found a few supplies, beads and three books. I enjoy small designs I can cross stitch onto the CQ blocks and this book is just perfect for it . The other book is also what I was just looking for, now trying to see which one I will use first! So when I told my wonderful hubby about the 2014 Retreat in Kansas City for the Crazy quilting group I`m a member of online he just said go I will pay for it, I cant wait to meet all the Ladies!
I have started to make German Christmas cookies and Cheesecake. Since it is very hard to get Quark here for my cake I just made my own.
after mixing and baking ready to eat!

I made this oversized snowball for Tahlia . She asked for 4x6 post card size , do whatever I want and I did. I used one of my favorite color combinations, green and blue, made sure I had enough beads , some SR embroidery, lace, velvet and rick rack trim, a butterfly applique and satin leafs . This one was all about seam treatments , the Turkish Oyas and my little heart button with Edelweiss.
