Afternoon with Raven

I spent the afternoon with Raven baking. She made the pies.... sweet potato, pecan and peanut butter. Then she made Florence's pecan fingers and white chocolate covered pretzels. I supervised and did the cleaning up afterwards. She then did some decorating and even found time to play the Wii with her Papo. We had a very enjoyable day. Here are two pictures of her with the pecan fingers. She will be celebrating her 13th birthday on December 26.

Wishing you All a Very Merry Christmas and Blessed New Year.
Have fun and Be safe.

Carol's Holiday Gift Challenge

Carol Doak posted a challenge on her Yahoo group. We were to make a gift using one of her blocks in it. I decided to make a lunch bag. It was a REAL CHALLENGE because I didn't have a pattern. I put fusible fleece on one piece of fabric to give it some body. I made the block from the 4500 member block using colors from the main fabric for the bag. I decide to use the block to make a pocket on the bag. I backed it with the light purple fabric like that in the center of the block. I used velcro for closing the bag. It folds over and catches onto the other piece of velcro. I am quite please with how it turned out. I love butterflies!

Snowman Wreath

Raven and I finally got together for some crafting and she made a snowman wreath. We got the idea from the Michael's web sight. Hopefully this weekend we will decorate some glass ornaments. I forgot to take a picture of some I made before sending them off to Fernando's family. So here is Raven and her wreath.......

Happy Holidays.... Merry Christmas to All! Be safe and God Bless,
