Have a Warm and Cozy Christmas

 It's going to be a warm and cozy Christmas
with this new quilt and pillow.

Warm Letter Quilt
and
Cozy Pillow Cover


 It's getting colder and colder.

My newest patterns over at Thermoweb will help you to stay cozy this Christmas.


They make great gifts too!

The fabrics are one of my favorite color combinations in
Art Gallery Fabrics “Merry & Bright” collective by AGF Studio.


These products really made it easy to piece this quilt and applique the scarf:
StitchnSew EZ Print Quilt Block Sheets 

iCraft purple tape

HeatnBond EZ Print Lite  iron-on adhesive 

Check out my post over at Thermoweb for all the details.



The quilt is a great size for gifting:  40" x 60".


Have a warm and cozy Christmas!

Virtual Cookie Exchange and Christmas Blog Hop

 It's time to make Christmas happen here in the Sticks

and

my friend Carol at Just Let Me Quilt
has a way of pushing me to get my projects finished on time.

Welcome to 
Creatin' in the Sticks!

I'm excited to kick off the
where bloggers are sharing Christmas cookies recipes, traditions, 
and/or 
sewing projects.
Thank you, Carol, for including me!

Merry Christmas!


It's been a crazy year and I think we are all ready to start a new one.
Then Christmas comes along and things seem a little happier and brighter.

I've been busy making a few things
including these ornament potholders.


They are 8" potholders and so fun to make.
The perfect way to use leftover Christmas fabrics and batting scraps.

A double layer of cotton batting inside and the stripes are a 
pleated effect to add extra heat protection.

It always seems like my kitchen lacks in Christmas decor
 and these will be super cute hanging on the backsplash.

They would make great gifts too!

But you are here not only for Christmas inspiration but for some virtual cookies.



These cookies are so good and not too sweet.
A friend gave me some last year and I just had to have the recipe.
They are made with a pie crust - there is no way that can be wrong!!!
Cranberries, walnuts, orange zest, and drizzled in honey.

It's Christmas in a bite!

They remind me of my Grandma making pinwheels
out of leftover pie dough with cinnamon sugar and butter.

The recipe is over at diethood.

If you want more cookie recipes, you are in luck.


Please leave each one a sweet comment.
Spread some Christmas cheer.


Thank you for stopping by
and
thank you, Carol, for this fun hop!


I hope your Christmas is amazing!

 It's getting colder and colder.

My newest pattern over at Thermoweb will help you to stay cozy.

To make Cozy you'll need these products from Thermoweb:
