January 2021 Wallpaper

Happy New Year!

I’m ready to hunker down for the rest of the winter – sewing, stitching, reading and eating.

Basically, I want to be a snow monkey. Enjoying winter and the cold – but staying warm and cozy. πŸ™‚

Dreamy, yes?

Happy December! Free Downloadable Wallpaper

Happy December!

The holiday season always puts me in a gingerbread kind of mood, but I rarely make gingerbread cookies. I usually make this Gingerbread Snacking Cake, but instead of dusting it with powdered sugar I cover it with a thick layer of cream cheese frosting with the zest of an orange mixed in. Orange and ginger are so good together!

Are you hungry yet? 😁

No eating this gingerbread man – but you will be able to decorate him! Or her. πŸ™‚ There’s a free pattern coming soon and it will include a few different mouth options, hair, and even a version with a bite taken out. Stay tuned! I expect to have the pattern ready before the end of the week.

Over on Instagram I’ve been working on fabric designs and mocking up quilt blocks to test them out. A couple of weeks ago I did a little mini-collection inspired by the Amazon and this was my favorite critter I created. I love tree frogs!

I loved this guy so much, I decided to make him the June calendar critter. πŸ™‚
