Journaling Fun


Over Christmas, one of my girls (home from college) asked me to make a journal for her friend's birthday. She e-mailed me a picture and I printed it onto fabric. From there I made a small crazy quilt incorporating the picture and some cheery fabric. A little rick rack and buttons were the final embellishment for this quickie gift. Now, I am off to the post office to mail it.






Oh, and I almost forgot....today's teatime offering is Peppermint Hot Chocolate and dark chocolate dipped pretzels. We have a snowstorm predicted here in Central PA, so I thought that hot chocolate would be warm and yummy. Perhaps we will build a snowman!
