Baby it's Cold Outside!

I hope everyone is keeping warm. We have been watching the forecast of up north.  (where we are from). Then we seen the forecast from TX where other relatives live and it is cold everywhere.  Here on TN we are hitting record low temps!  Even FL is colder than usual.   So I do hope everyone is keeping warm and being safe outside

Well. I can't believe that these 2 hops are over already.  It has been a lot of fun.  So many ideas as to how we can decorate our quilting spaces.  Not only to make them look good but a lot of useful projects.  Oh and speaking of useful.  I seen the cutest door stops.  There is no excuse for any of us to have closed doors.

We truly need to give a big thanks to Carla and Madame Samm for all there hard work getting this all together for us.

As some of hours know, since we moved to TN, my husband has been managing a Granite Shop in Paris.  (They are presently in the process of moving everything to Nashville.). Anyway, they had the best security system there.  Every morning my husband would have s meeting with him to see how the night went. LOL  He would tease that "Tamo" was the real boss.

Here is Tamo, short for Ti ammo.  (Means I love you in Italian)

He was trained over 2 years to be a security dog.

Well, I am proud to say that he is now retired and happily living with us.  He is the smartest dog I ever saw.

This week I learned how to make dog treats. (cookies) with peanut butter, pumpkin, oatmeal,  and wheat flour.

He just loves them!!

I didn't get a lot of quilting done cause of getting Tamo used to us and baking.  (we had a 2 birthdays so also baked 2 birthday cakes, and had 2 birthday dinners.  So I am really ready to get back to sewing.  I miss my machine.    But before I do I will go to and pick a winner for my giveaway.

Congratulations to Cindy!!!
