Hey y'all! Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday. I wish I could say I sewed even a single stitch this week, but that isn't the case. We hosted a Christmas party for the hubs' colleagues on Saturday and since last week's post, the days have been spent preparing for said party, and then mostly in party-recovery mode since. We cleaned, raked leaves, prepped food, and just generally made sure everything was all ready for guests, and thankfully it all paid off. It was a great time!
Then on Sunday, my family and I spent the whole afternoon baking. We baked everyone's favorite cookies (almost 300!), and had fun with the cookie press. Raspberry white chocolate thumbprints, chocolate chip- both with and without pecans, and butter shortbread cookies will last us the whole Christmas season, and we'll give lots of them away as gifts too.
Since I finished my Santa's Christmas Forest quilt, I don't actually have any projects in the works right now. So instead, here are some extra highlights from last weeks linkups.
Sally at Crafts, Cavies, and Cooking linked up this vibrant quilt top. So pretty!
