Weekend Goodness :)

Well, it was a super fun weekend filled with lots of Christmas Kitchen goodness . . .but before I get to that, I need to announce the winner of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day :)  So, the winner of the Bonnie and Camille Basics Fat Eighth Bundle is . . . 

#83 . . . Congrats to Tiffany!!!!   I have emailed you ;) 

So onto my weekend spent in the Kitchen ;)   I finished up making and plating all of our Homemade Christmas Chocolates.  These are always so much fun to make up and we make them as a whole family with Christmas music singalongs the entire time :) This year we made Chocolate Truffles, Mint Truffles, Turtles, Almond Joys, Peanut Butter Cups, Chocolate CaramelsChocolate Cinnamon Bears, and English Toffee.  They are oh so very yummy (I won't mention how many I ate while making up Christmas plates, tee hee hee ) and just in case you want to try them one year, I linked all of the recipes to the names ;)

And after finishing up the chocolates, I went to a good friends house and made up this adorable Gingerbread House with the young women in our church.  We decorated for about 2 1/2 hours and had lots of wonderful laughs and of course, lots of great Christmas tunes again ;)   And of course, as soon as I got home the kids wanted to eat all of the candy, I told them they have to give it at least a week to enjoy it ;)  

 And, I also managed to squeak in just a little bit of sewing and finished up my Jelly Roll Twist quilt that I started last week ;)  I just love the random goodness of it :)  I normally tend to plan my layouts a lot more but I really tried to just stay random and not think about it to much and I just love how fun it turned out ;)

This will have to wait until after to Christmas to be quilted most likely, but who knows, I am so excited to see it all finished up, I might just have to squeak it in again ;)

I hope you all had a very Happy Quilting Weekend as well ;)

    Also, that chocolate sounds divine. 😅

    Congrats to Tiffany on your beautiful win!!

  5. Thank you also for sharing your yummy chocolate recipes! For the peanut butter cups and chocolate cinnamon bears - are there recipes attached, or do you just buy a finished product and dip these in chocolate?
