New Year Filled with Ideas

December came and went,
and boy was it a busy one!

We had all our family here because my Granddaughter Ashley got married!
A sweet picture of her and Jacob await you near the end of this post.

One of my favorite finds so far this year
is this
darling quilted top piano bench from a vintage quilt!
I have it in my sewing room and I use it as a coffee table and a foot rest ... or bottom rest!

One of my favorite people is darling Janine Pettit!
She is the host of "Girl Camper" Podcast, fellow Sisters on the Fly sister, glamper, has thousands of social media followers,
and her theme is "Going places, doing things!"
She is so much fun!

She gifted me with this Girl Camper t~shirt & mug set, 
and I love it!
I am a Happy Camper!

Thank You Janine!

My favorite cookie in the world are these Cream Wafers!

This is the recipe I typed out and added to our FAMILY COOKBOOK
I made each of my daughters years ago.
Daughter Tiffani makes these and sends me them from Colorado!

Here is the recipe if you want to bake some!

It sure has been cold and rainy here in California!

These heart hand~warmers for my pockets have come in handy!
I made them as Christmas gifts.
They are made of cotton quilt batting, corn feed & lavender!

They look like sugar cookies, don't they?!

Here is the December wedding we couldn't wait for!
Beautiful Granddaughter Ashely and handsome Jacob.

It was such a special day indeed! XOXO

Oh, and I almost forgot to share!
I just bought this pattern to make this amazing large quilt.
I love the colors and block patterns.

I shall work on it all year,
and hopefully can get a lot of it done. :)

I have some fun plans up my sleeve this year!

I will keep you "posted"!

Greetings, Maryjane,

I can't wait to try that recipe Maryjane. I am trying to lose a little Christmas weight, but these are calorie free right? Your handwarmers are such a cute idea. You always inspire me to get the sewing machine out.
sending love to you!
