New Pattern and Winners!!!

 

   Our newest pattern, Feast of Friendship goes to the printer today. I love this piece designed by Barb. There is something about the bowl of fruit that just calls my name. I know everyone around the world doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving like we do in the states, but it's really a great holiday. It's all about everyone sitting around a table enjoying a good meal together. The laughter, stories and time spent with our kids make it really fun. Each of them has a special dish they prepare or task they do to help things go smoothly. Although I might make a couple of new dishes we haven't tried before, we pretty much stick to the same menu each year. Andy, my oldest always helps with the dishes, Jeff peels potatoes with his brother Greg. Laura makes her corn casserole. Greg also makes a wonderful sweet potato dish. Dave grills the turkey. Usually we have dear friends that show up to help celebrate too. They always bring something wonderful!

   This sampler symbolizes our feelings of Thanksgiving. The home represents family, the acorn border and pumpkin celebrates the harvest and the bowl of fruit symbolizes the bounty of the meal. 


Without delay here are our winners!

I grew up on Cinnamon toast and chocolate milk.... These fabrics are beautiful. There needs to be a Snickerdoodle quilt.. you know those cookies you made with your mom when you were little rolling cookie dough balls in cinnamon and sugar?!?!?

The colors in your new line of fabrics are beautiful. Who wouldn't love some Cinnamon Spice and a cookie magazine? Thanks for the opportunity.

back in KY i have cookie cutters that are being passed down to the 4th generation of bakers. They belonged to my Grandma, who made cookie with my Dad and Aunt, I got them when no one else wanted them - imagine that??? And now my girls have them. They are kept in an old orange little kid tool box - that was my Dad's as a child. I also have several of the receipts that my grandmother and mother used for their christmas cookies.

The fabric is wonderful too, but the "Christmas Cookies" brought back old memories.

I like the cookiebook (and the fabric). In our country it's not so common to bake cookies for Christmas. So maybe I can have a new Christmas tradition.
