Christmas Crunch Time

Pattern:  Live Life by Shepherd's Bush Printworks by Tina Richards Herman 2011

The jewelry box is by Cottage Garden
Color Distressed Cream

When I bought the first jewelry box at the Counted Cross Stitch Shop, it cost $20.00 (not including the pattern) but the exact same jewelry box cost $10.00 at the Hallmark store. I've got four more to make in about two weeks so I can get them out in the mail.

Ten Minute Table Runner

I can't find the pattern that I used but it is very similar to the one found on this blog.

The next time I make it I would put batting in it to give it a little more body.

Italian All natural Ground Sausage Stuffing

Really really good.  I've been told this is the only type of stuffing I should make from now on :)
I put things in this stuffing that I have never in my life put in stuffing.  Sun dried oil packed chopped tomatoes??  Parmesan cheese?  Five local grocery stores did not have Focaccia bread so I ended up going to a wine store/sandwich shop where they were willing to sell me something they don't normally sell :)  Thank you Blue Wind Gourmet :)
