Today will probably be my busiest day before Christmas, with lots of events. I'm busily making these this morning . . .
Aren't they pretty? And super easy. The recipe can be found Cooking Classy - with a sprinkle of fancy. I'm taking some of them to our staff party at the Madison Baptist Association. Usually we do a pot luck kind of thing, but this year we are having lunch catered in by Connor's Steak House! Whooohoo!! Then we'll do a dirty Santa gift exchange. I had fun putting together a gift basket of hot chocolates, Starbucks coffees, assorted teas, chocolates (Hershey's cordial kisses and Ghirardelli peppermint bark squares) and a cute mug. Todd bought a 'man tool'. LOL!
I'm also making some peppermint cookies to take with the oreo truffles to tonight's guild meeting. It's our annual holiday meeting ... the board members all bring dessert and the hostess committee (of which I'm an unofficial member) does the program. We're all supposed to bring a Christmas quilt for a 'merry show and tell'. I'm bringing my Christmas Star topper and my Holly Jolly topper. It should be a fun evening! Everyone who did the gingerbread house workshop is supposed them for a show . . .
This is the one Karen (the hostess of our Stitcher's Etc. Christmas party) made. I have my camera ready and charged (and will make sure I find out about a pattern, too)! And in-between the two events? I'll spend some quality time with my Ellie-belly-baby! Yay!
I finished my doll quilt swap for Barbara. This is the absolute earliest I've ever finished a swap! Since Barbara and I are both local to Huntsville ... and in guild together ... and are friends, to boot, Barbara suggested we swap out at tonight's guild meeting. I agreed, but the whole time I was thinking, "WOW! I need to get BUSY!" LOL!
This is the little sneak peek of the swap quilt I provided on the swap blog. This is such a fun swap group! It's open to new members, too, so if you have any interest, head over to Doll Quilters Monthly and check it out!
Okay ... I still have some gift wrapping and baking and quilt gathering to do, so I need to get on with it! Have a GREAT day! I'm linking up with Favorite Things Thursday!
