So earlier this week on one of my two days off I baked. One of our favourites this time of year is Fudge Puddles. I came across this recipe in Country Woman magazine years ago and I've made it every year since. They're pretty simple to make, and everybody loves them!
And these cute little peppermint patties are new this year. I found this one on Pinterest and they were just so cute, I knew I'd have to try them. And ...... they have cream cheese in them! You can find the recipe here if you're interested.They are a hit, looks like they'll be another Christmas regular in our house!
I'm a quilter, love everything about this great craft. I've been quilting since I was just a little girl, blessed to have both of my grandmothers influence and teaching to start me on my way. The first quilt that I remember working on was a Grandmother's Flower Garden. My maternal grandmother, Fanny, helped me get started, I was around 7 or 8 years old. I still have that work, never did finish the quilt though. My maternal grandmother, Dot, often had a quilt in the frame when I was a little girl. I spent many wonderful hours playing under that quilt frame, in my world of imagination. And I was so blessed as I grew a bit older to have her teach me the fine art of hand quilting. Today, I still love hand work, but also love the convenience of today's modern techniques.
I have been blessed beyond measure this past year to be able to open my own quilt shop, I've been dreaming of this for 20 years and finally decided now was the time to stop dreaming and start doing! I hope you'll follow along with me on the journey!
