I am on my last row of Hexies for Handful of Scraps and I had to baste about 45 pieces as I had about run out – they were already cut so I did them while Mike and I watched a movie last night and started to add the row. If I stick to it I can finish it this week.
This much of Murrieta Stars was quilted on Friday night – I didn’t work on it Saturday night. I will be working on my hexies for my Slow Sunday Stitching project. Also linking to Quilting is More Fun Than Housework —
Now on to the cookies – our daughter Melanie came over yesterday afternoon for our annual cookie baking and Aniya came with her – Aniya announced as she came in that coming to my house every year to make cookies is one of her favorite traditions! The girl is 6 years old – I think those words were something she hears from Melanie LOL – I think she was three when she started to come over to the house with Melanie to start this tradition.

Opening up her Christmas present from us –
I never thought a play dough kit would bring this big of a reaction and such a huge hug – the play dough kit that makes hamburgers and hot dogs/lettuce, onion – all things barbecue was a big hit.
She takes her baking very seriously – having a child around makes it all of a sudden seem more like the holidays are really coming up – My grandchildren live quite a distance from me and I only see them once or twice a year so having Aniya around fills in the gap a bit, she has become a part of the family.
