buns and not much else

not much sewing or any fun stuff goin onwe make cookies and candy at work for the customers for 2 weeks and that kinda burns me out making for family
this is what i took to my work x-mas party last night i also made jambalaya and homemade sea salt caramels they melt in your mouth
it also snowed a little yesterday if you look close at the pic below
 my husband is working night so and im afraid to do any freemotion in the next room it does make a lot of noise going that fast i dont want to wake him

we are going out of town next week bought a new dress and its tiny and very thin so a little less food and a little harder workouts and extra runs this week my plan is to wear it the first night to dinner and not alot of getting up and down so as to not draw alot of attention to myself did i mention how thin it is and red ! im sure noone will notice just keep telling myself ILL NEVER SEE THESE PEOPLE AGAIN
 i still have to tell my mother we wont be there i think im done tho with shopping  i have to take my summer in the park quilt to be quilted this week i hope!

swimwear in december

can you tell these are the same without a code ?
do you know how hard it is to find swimwear in dec that fits and doesn cost a fortune hard but when you add incompitence( sorry for the spelling ) on the sellers part it is just my luck i find two that i like are not expensive at amazon and they are shipped fast i get them today and they are 2 of the same suit WHAT how i can tell the difference without looking at a number had to send back a dress today to i guess im done venting today

miss eloise quilt finished and brittle

i finished the label and sewed it on at work on sunday and snipped all those loose threads fixed a loose seam i foundand its ready to ship to florida today
i love the backing ins zoology i had  a hard time getting it everyone was out and i love it ists not
 direction and very busy for my not professional quilting skills thats a plus !
her name is so long i had to make another label i ran out of room

i did a design in the center and stipple around itan open leaf with a loop in each of the 9 patch blocks continued the swirl in the second border you cant see a swirls in thefirts white and did the leaf again in the outerim alwasy afraid the blueor whatever i mark with will not wash out after all that that would be awful to have permanant blue in those all whit blocks and i use 2 shout color catchers in the laundry when i use precuts i dont wash them before

i have to tell you about this brittle its got saltine crackers as the base cooked caramel topping bake it 8 min spread butterscotch chips on top then toasted almonds and is to die for !!crazy i know but as you can see th th left bubba thought it was a plate for him it will be on the cookie table today cant leave this at home i had to make more chex mix to i add extra butter and they love it
later!have a great day
