I'm adding needle punching to my crafting skills. I've been working on a small kit that I bought and it is going along pretty well.

I am finishing up a quilted wall hanging that I made to depict scenery from this area that we live in. This area is called "Over Home" and I used that as the caption for the hanging.

In 2008 I'm determined to make a full-sized quilt. I have the pattern selected from a Love of Quilting magazine issue.

O Christmas Tree

This was the year we decided to use a tree from our property for our Christmas tree! We had slim pickings; the suitable ones were small and scraggly pines, but we used one anyway. Looks like a Charlie Brown tree!


I crafted this snowlady from the Create & Decorate magazine.

Cookies and Candy

Our Christmas shopping is all done and all the packages have been mailed out to the grandkids and others, thank goodness. We live out in the sticks and running to the store is like taking a mini-vacation. So now I can stay home and focus on making some candy and cookies. Made old fashioned sea foam yesterday. I loved it as a kid, and still love it, but it is a bit sweet for my taste now! Can't eat as much of it. I also made chocolate chip cookies. Today I'll make double chocolate coconut oatmeal cookies. I'm canning some up to give to our neighbor guys who are "baching" it over the holidays. We'll have them over for Christmas dinner. They are our only neighbors on our road.
