'tis the season....

I've been working on a few quilting/sewing projects the last couple weeks, but can't share pictures just yet. 'Tis the season for suprises!! :) I'm taking pictures though, so I'll share after Christmas.

And since I've been working on gifts, I haven't made much progress on the string blocks for the mystery quilt...I have seven blocks made. I'll be able to get back to them in the next day or two though, so I'm not worried at all about being behind. I'm not going to stress about it...I'm just curious how all the units are going to fit together!

I'm going to a cookie exchange tonight and I'm trying a new cookie recipe. Kinda risky, huh? I got lucky this time though...these are DELICIOUS!! The are called Snickers Cookies and the recipe can be found here. I can't believe I haven't heard of these before. The recipe called for the chocolate drizzle and I added a bit of Christmas flair by adding the sprinkles. I think they are perfectly fine without the chocolate drizzle though. The dough is wrapped around a bite size Snickers bar. The cookie and the candy inside stays chewy. Yum!!!

Happy Quilting,
