Jellyroll's and cute little stockings

I am in the midst of sewing my very first Jellyroll quilt. It's going to be a lap size and I am planning on giving it to my mother and father in law for christmas. I wasn't sure about the prints, but boy, once it was sewn all together it's lovely! I still have to go get more fabric to sew on the border.

I am also making these cute little stockings. There are 4 more to be made and they will go on once of my christmas trees this year.

I am hoping to convince my husband to buy me a new sewing machine. I really need one and now that I am getting into quilting, i want to be able to machine quilt and I cannot on my old kenmore : ( I have researched a bit and have my site set on a Janome. There is a dealer about an hour from here and I am going to go there and see what is available that doesn't cost an arm and a leg!

Happy Thanksgiving.

This year we are having a quiet Thanksgiving. We had our Turkey supper yesterday and enjoyed the candle light and mellow setting. Giving thanks for being together and healthy. Last year my sister were with us, they were sure to call to say Hi and that we were missed. Living 3 hrs away from family can be lonesome at times.

cooking/baking with Emma

Emma made a casserole for supper last night. I told her that I want her to make supper once a week and she can pick what it will be. She did a great job and we all enjoyed it.
I think she is so beautiful...don't you?

We also made some wonderbar cookies...mmmm, chopped up wonderbars!
