Also arriving were a few from the Poetica collection from Art Gallery.

Love this one!

Were expecting more in a couple of weeks so keep checking back with us.

I worked on a sample this week from the Hot Who! Hot Pads pattern and used this fabric for the body. These were simple and I completed them in an afternoon.

Next weeks to-do’s include baby shoes, cutting a quilt out and a bit of embroidery. But for now, I’m going to relax and pour over my latest issue of Mollie Makes.

Have a great weekend!

As promised a little show ‘n’ tell of what I’ve been busy with this week. This quilt only took me a about an hour to get together and it turned out just adorable for a little boy.I made it from the Hootie & Friends pattern that we have but left off the applique. Super easy!

I added an orange flange to separate the charm squares and keep the outer border from blending in and I’m going to use the same fabric for the binding. I do believe it adds just the right amount of pop to the quilt. Isn’t that border fabric just the cutest? I can’t wait till Paige gets it quilted so I can show you the finished quilt. We’ll be taking these kits with us to the Pride of the Prairie Quilt Show in March.

I spent some time with Shelley over at Elsie’s Girl this week and worked on a couple of pot holder samples from this pattern.

Very fast, easy and turned out pretty darn cute!

Looking for an easy Hostess gift to impress your neighbors and friends with at your next Holiday party? How about Christmas Tree Hot Pads! Whip these up in no time, then add your favorite recipe to go along with them.

This is a great stash project – combine festive fabrics for the trees with contrasting backgrounds and tree trunks. Use easy paper pieced blocks and finish with binding, quilting and simple embroidery.

Add some wooden spoons, mixing bowl, and your favorite cookie recipe with these hot pads for a great gift!

And they even look great as mini quilts for my hutch decorations!

Here’s one of my favorite cookie recipes. I found this in the Gooseberry Patch Christmas Book 9. Sooo yummy!! Enjoy!

Vanilla Dipped Gingersnaps
2-1/2 C. Sugar-divided
1-1/2 C. Oil
2 Eggs
½ C. Molasses
4 C. All-Purpose Flour
4 tsp. Baking Soda
1 TBSP Ground Ginger
2 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Salt
2 11-oz Pkgs. White Chocolate Chips
¼ C. Shortening

Combine 2 cups sugar and oil in a mixing bowl; mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in molasses.

Combine flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon and salt in a separate bowl; gradually blend into molasses mixture. Shape dough into 1” balls and roll in remaining sugar; place 2” apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until cookie springs back when lightly touched. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Melt white chocolate chips and shortening together in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth. Dip each cookie halfway into mixture; allow excess to drip off. Place cookies on wax paper to harden. Makes about 7 dozen.
