I am here!!!!!!!!!!

I can not seem to get pictures to download onto my blog.  I know Frontier helped with a few other computer issues and since then I can't post pictures so will have to talk with them again.

We have been busy doing some stuff to the house and yard.  New big bay window, roof, storm door, painting inside, new counter top and sink is ordered.  New wood furnace outside.  Seems we are running in circles trying to get stuff done.

Holidays approaching and deer season so lots going on.

Pillowcases for my nephew

I took these to my nephew Jackson today on his 9th b'day.  They were actually to be for his 8th b'day but he just got around to telling me the material he wanted so he got extra today!

Mitering Tool

I saw this on a blog on Monday night--ordered one Tues. a.m. and got it yesterday.  I will never have to dread the corners again!!!

Pardon the chair.  The set is in my craft room and were my great grandparents.  Have to get them recovered.

Doll Quilts

I made these 3 doll quilts for a charity.  They will be given out for Christmas with a crib or cradle.  My first time at free motion---granted it is just a line through 2 of them.  Quilts are perfect but hope they give some happiness to a little girl.

Fast and Easy Meatballs

24 oz package frozen meatballs
1.35 oz package onion soup mix
12 oz. bottle beer or non alcoholic beer
In a large saucepan over medium high heat, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low. Simmer until meatballs are heated through, about 20-25 minutes. 

Serves 8


Don't forget to decorate your mailbox for the holidays.  Alittle greenery with pinecones tied in.

Line a walkway with mason jars filled with rock or Epsom salt and put in a votive candle to light the way.

Don't forget to have an elf of some type out and moved around daily to spy on the kids.

When our kids were little we would decorate the tree and that night we would order pizza and then eat by the lights on the tree and around the cabinets and doors with candlelight.  They always looked forward to that.
