Here's another one I did this week
I love to paint, draw, color, along with beading, sewing, knitting, reading... a long list. I love my supplies by the computer, including water soluble pencils and markers. If I want a shadow or background I can dampen the marker line with a water pen and scrub in a pale color
Here's how they start
I've now finished my Christmas quilt center, here it is in progress and have decided how to quilt it in sections. I quilt even king sized quilts on my small domestic machine, so I need to be smart about how to sew the sections together, more on Saturday describing my plans!

I spent some time this week googling hairstyles for women with double chins, and laughed when this came up
|nary a double chin to be found!|
I enjoyed the finale of the Bachelorette this week and love her choice of husband. I don't know how anyone can go through that weird process but am glad these two found each other. There is precious little on tv now but we're enjoying Madam Blanc on Prime, and a new season of Virgin River.
coming up Saturday night on Masterpiece (PBS) is the Downton movie, and the Midwives Christmas special... I'll be there for it!
I just finished the audio book,
and cried at the end... beautiful. It is a story that goes back and forth between current time and the civil war in America when Longfellow was writing. One of his quotes gives me solacehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXqFvfCaFwY&t=3330s
I'll start with the perogi's we made from this video at Food Wishes. I LOVE his style and voice. Next I'll try his buttermilk pie recipe since we just made another whole wheat buttermilk bread loaf and have some milk left over
here are ours... the recipe makes a lot so we froze them after boiling, and have appetizers ready in minutes now.

There are a lot of steps to this, not difficult but they are a bit time consuming. We felt very accomplished when they were done and so delicious!
I made two new to me cookie recipes (half) and must stop now. Lime white chocolate cookies that got better as they aged
and these candy cane cookies (not using actual candy canes made of corn syrup)https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/christmas-candy-cane-cookies/
I'm still eating my Christmas cookies, I don't care if they are stale. PLUS Mama gave me an early present that she was going to wrap but I sniffed it and wanted it right now! she puts rabbit treats in it and I have to figure out how to remove them!
