Pineapple Finish and lots of Christmas

This quilt was almost seven years in the making. I first blogged about it with a tutorial here. I used Gyleen Fitzgerald's book and ruler.

Dot at Sew Classic Fabrics in Harrisonburg Virginia quilted it with a simple meander pattern.

56" x 64"

Just thought it would be fun to take photos of it hanging from the hayloft.

The following are a smattering of photos from this past month.

DD and her boyfriend helped me decorate the Christmas tree.

I made these roasted mixed nuts three times over the past month. They are seasoned with chili powder, maple syrup and rosemary. It's a great recipe from Alana Chernila's The Homemade Pantry.

Barb asked for a peak at the light show my DH creates.

Son and daughter home for Christmas.

My DH loves my gingersnaps especially because the only sweetener in the recipe I use is from molasses. It is also egg free. I use a recipe from The Fannie Farmer Cookbook. My copy looks well used by my MIL. DH didn't like the cinnamon candies I added for the holidays. I thought they were a festive touch!

Happy New Year to you and yours!
