What's Been Going On?

I think there must be ebbs and flows to the keeping of a blog, just like with any writing. There are times when I have so many things to write about that I need to make a list to be sure to get them all. And I'm eager to write about them, too. Then at other times, I just don't have the slightest desire to write. Those times usually coincide with not having a lot to share and with being busy with things other than quilting/sewing.


In the quilting arena, I have put the little Churn Dash wall hanging in a hoop, and have taken a few stitches on it. It will be a nice quiet diversion for the next month or so.


A really fun event a few friends did together last Sunday afternoon was to have a cookie exchange. Eight girls met to bake cookies and exchange with each other, giving us all a very nice variety of cookies to have on hand for Christmas holiday guests. One of our group is the cafeteria lady at school, so we met in the main kitchen to make use of all those wonderful ovens. It was so fast and clean up was a breeze, too, as the big machines did the grunt work. Our best guess is that we made over 500 cookies in 2.5 hours. We had such a good time, we are thinking about doing it again - this month, perhaps!

I have been slow at finishing some very important Christmas gifts, and need to devote myself to doing just that in the next 2-3 days.

I hope you are enjoying this blessed season!

Happy Quilting, Friends!

What a great idea to get together and bake the cookies for the exchange! It sounds like such a fun time! So true about the ebbs and flows of blogging.

what a great way to get those cookies done. I have a little more wrapping to do then onto the cookie baking! Christmas isnt Christmas without the cookies, right?
