I want to thank everyone so much for their support this year. This has been an extremely hard year for me. We now have my dad's estate finalized, we are buying my sister's half of the house and my baby will be moving out soon. This is my last Christmas at home with her, so want to make it really special. But I am having my big Giveaways just in time Christmas, so just leave me a comment and you must be a member of my blog to enter.
First, is one of my all time favorites The Snowman in wreath, this is made from a pattern by Country Friends. I love her patterns. This was made on a 12" grapevine wreath, wreath has a little string of lights on it and greenery. This is a large piece.
This is the Original model from my pattern #424 Trees of the Season. This is a set of 3 trees on bobbins with Christmas songs on the trees. I love this set. Tallest tree is about 14" tall. Lots of moss, rusty bells, safety pins and prim tags.
I plan on having a couple more free patterns in the next day or so, so please keep checking back. Hope to have them posted tomorrow.
Next my good friend Becky from Orlando, HI Becky, sent me this recipe to try. Sound easy and yummy.
Easy Cinnamon Sticky Buns (what's not to love?)
2 loaves of frozen bread dough thawed, (You can buy it in the freezer section of the supermarket, any brand)
1/4 pound of butter melted
1 box of vanilla pudding (not instant)
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup of raisins ( I like golden)
1 cup of pecans
Add all of the ingredients except the bread dough to the melted butter. Spoon the mixture evenly into the bottoms of a 2 muffin tins. Break the bread into balls and place into each section. Cover with clean dishtowel and let the bread rise for 2 hours in warm dry spot.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
