Sunday Stitching......

Another Sunday day for me!!! Love this routine. Kids are headed off to Grandma's shortly with Dad driving them.... which gives me a nice quiet house. (45 minute drive to get there!). I'll be making up some Hershey Kiss cookies for a cookie exchange tonight.... and maybe making up a batch of sugar cookies. Then kitchen work is done and off to the sewing room I go! I'll be making a backing of Pink Llama fabric for the baby quilt... then pinning the quilt and machine quilting. Also need to attach the binding by machine so I can stitch it down by hand later tonight. A full day with the machine and the evening with the needle and thread snuggled under the quilt. A perfect day (did I mention the kids will be at Grandma's all day?)

llama print for the back. 

Linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching.

The results of the 'Christmas Crack' or 'Christmas Toffee' from last night. I really don't recall my tester piece being that big! I just took it out of the freezer so I can break it up and put in a tin...then back into the freezer so it doesn't melt down here in Florida. Must remember to use the smaller cookie sheet next time. I like a thicker toffee. Recipe is on the last post... or google it. I use saltine crackers -1 sleeve, butter and brown sugar, chocolate chips and sliced almonds on top. So yummy.
