Happy New Year

Any plans for tonight? I plan on spending the New Year's Eve at home! I do not like to go out on this night. Staying home is my idea of fun!
Just like Christmas Eve, everyone else is working. Cade is going next door so it will just be me at home tonight. I have been cooking a little for our New Year's lunch at my Grandmother's. Kelsey and I made these candy-pretzel thingys. Very quick and very easy. and very easy to overeat! I found the recipe on Pinterest.

I got a Kindle after Christmas. So far I am LOVING it! I still have alot to learn with it. I have a book loaded in it so I will probably spend some of my time reading. Anyone know of any really good books?
I am down to my last few blocks for my applique quilt. Amanda Jean finished hers and it is BEAUTIFUL!! I only hope that mine turns out half as good as hers! You can see hers at

and this is who I will being spending my night with! Ruby! Happy New Year Friends! Hope your night and day are filled with family, friends, good food..and some sewing!

Sounds about like our evening! Andrew is working and Hunter is spending the night with my mom. Richard and I never go out on New Year's Eve, but we are too tired to anyway. We are getting very close to moving in the house...maybe a week!

I love your hand appliqued blocks, that is something that I wish I were better at.

Have a wonderful evening!

Those pretzel things were our snack of choice last year. I've only made them a few times this year and forgot how good they were.

Hope you have a good New Year's Day with your family.
