7 Cities Crafters Christmas

A few of us gals from the 7 Cities Crafters met up for a little Holiday Pot-Luck and gift exchange during the Christmas season. Fittingly, our gifts had to be handmade, so I whipped up these dainty reindeer ornaments. The image is simply an iron-on transfer with a blanket stitch all around; along w/some poly-filler inside. I love that they aren't the traditional Christmas colors. I still have loads left. I even gave some to my family as tag/gift toppers. I'm thinking maybe I'll perfect them and possibly sell them for next years holiday shows. We'll see...

Playing Catch Up

Sigghh...its the end of the year and I have neglected you my poor little blog for way too long. But alas I shall manage to post a few things for this month before the year is over and a new wonderful/hectic/exciting year awaits. Let's recap:

Fall...brought lots of pumpkin guts thanks to our Hunt Club visit. Pumpkin guts then led to lots of...Winter...pumpkin choc. chip cookies used as gifts and such for family & friends. Sadly, I do not have a pic of said cookies, but they are yummy. Not too much pumpkin taste...just right. I had to tweak the above recipe a bit since I used fresh pumpkin guts versus canned. It wasn't as thick as when made with canned pumpkin puree so I added flour, which didn't effect the taste or texture either. Along with lots of other holiday treats, goodies, and decorations as pictured below :) Hope you had a great holiday!
